Can’t-Wait Wednesday:”Wildcard” by Marie Lu

First Line Fridays (feature photo)

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tressa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today’s CWW feature is a book I’ve been nervously awaiting, especially after the way its predecessor ended.

29386918Emika Chen barely made it out of the Warcross Championships alive. Now that she knows the truth behind Hideo’s new NeuroLink algorithm, she can no longer trust the one person she’s always looked up to, who she once thought was on her side.

Determined to put a stop to Hideo’s grim plans, Emika and the Phoenix Riders band together, only to find a new threat lurking on the neon-lit streets of Tokyo. Someone’s put a bounty on Emika’s head, and her sole chance for survival lies with Zero and the Blackcoats, his ruthless crew. But Emika soon learns that Zero isn’t all that he seems–and his protection comes at a price.

Caught in a web of betrayal, with the future of free will at risk, just how far will Emika go to take down the man she loves?


Who’s excited for Wildcard? This girl! 🙋‍♀️ I plan to re-read Warcross just before this one releases just to review things a bit. Hopefully, September isn’t too crazy so I can go about re-reading and reading as planned.

Wildcard releases September 18.



let's chat

What book/s are you excited for this week?
