I'm so stoked for these.
I'm back in a huge video game mood, so I got two video game novels. Which are games that I love. :)

I've never read a book associated with a video game, but I LOVED Bioshock until it got too scary for me to play. Interpret as: total wuss. This is a prequel going over the creation and downfall of Rapture which was just incredible! All the elements of game play were incorporated seamlessly, characters were rich and I was incredibly impressed! You don't need any prior knowledge of the game to enjoy this.

Quickly draining a cup of #coffee, stealing 10 minutes to try and get through the last quarter of this book before becoming bulletin board mom extraordinaire!! Don't join the #PTA if you value your reading time!

This is my first video game tie-in novel, but I love the little nods to game play! #Bioshock #prequel #AndrewRyan #plasmids

I absolutely loved the game. And I definitely wasnot expecting the book to be this good. The book is set before the events of the game and does give some spoilers for the first game. So I recommend reading this after playing the game but don't worry I enjoyed it immensely despite knowing some things. You see this provides the background of the game: how Rapture came to be and how everything went to hell. It's just plain awesome.

Non-book related but the boyfriend bought me the remastered BioShock collection which I started playing today. Great for the Halloween season!!! So creepy.

DuckOfDoom The first two were too creepy for me but I really enjoyed Bioshock Infinite. Have fun playing! 3y

#day13 of #octphotochallenge I could have honestly chosen Ready Player One for like the millionth time but I figured I'd change it up. Ryan has been playing this game and reading the book and fills me in on the little info he has learned from the book for the game. I love the concept of the game so I figured this would be fitting.
