~Waiting on Wednesday~ Warcross (Warcross #1)

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

Waycross (Warcross #1) by Marie Lu
Out:  10/3

From Goodreads:
                From #1 New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu—when a game called Warcross takes the world by storm, one girl hacks her way into its dangerous depths.

                For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life.  The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit.  Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally.  But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy.  Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

                Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer.  He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem…and he wants Emika for the job.  With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of.  But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

                In this sci-fi thriller, author Marie Lu conjures an immersive, exhilarating world where choosing who to trust may be the biggest gamble of all.            

Why I’m Waiting:
                 I have really loved her other series so this is an auto-buy for me based on that alone but the cover is awesome and it sounds super interesting.  So yeah I’m totally in! 

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out.


  1. Aside from that amazing color, the story sounds really great as well. I haven't read any other books by the author before but I'm almost sure I'd love her book. :D

    My WOW

  2. I've not read any Marie Lu yet but this one sounds great. Also, that cover - words can't explain it. Great choice.

  3. Remninds me of Warcraft, the game. Or well, World of Warcraft. Quite addicting too, that! Although maybe not THAT much. I hope you get to read this book soon.
