Wildcard was super scary like a lot of action, very fast paced, I personally liked the first book better, I can‘t say too much as it is a sequel, and it would spoil a lot of the first book, but this prequel definitely kept me worried about every character and fear of them being in harms way, the genre of this book is Science Fiction, if you liked Warcross and like super fast paced action books Wildcard is a must read and will satisfy. #3

Cfischbuch I agree the first book was better - easier to follow. 2w

Here's my #weeklyforecast - I won't finish all these, but I plan to work on all at least a little. Wildcard is my current car #audiobook, but since I'm almost done with it, A Very Large Expanse of Sea is up next. What If It's Us is my non-car audiobook. Dress Codes for Small Towns is my ebook. I've been working on The Gilded Wolves in print forever, but I'm determined to finish it soon. The Unicorn Whisperer is purely for fun. @Cinfhen

Cinfhen It‘s good to have options!! Thanks for joining in!!! See you back on Saturday with your #BookReport 😉 2mo

This has more conspiracy and less warcross than the first book, and I really enjoyed it! Really interesting to look at how the technology affect society

I was not as big of a fan of the second in this duology. I felt it was pretty inconsistent and plot holey, and I ended up not really rooting for some of the "good guys" by the end, due to their questionable moral ambiguity. But I loved Emika and the world was still cool so I'm glad I finished it.

My buddy read of Wildcard with @jmtrivera was a lot of fun! It was actually a bit darker than I was expecting, and a couple of plot points surprised me, which was cool. I‘m still not sure if I‘m complete sold on the ending, but I don‘t want to give any spoilers, so I‘ll leave it at that.

Week 3 check-in! My water improved! It looks like my steps did too, but that's mostly from walking around school for trainings and meetings. I did no real exercise (thus the sloth). That's the focus for this week.

Every problem has a solution. But after every solution, there's a new problem to tackle, some new challenge to take on. You don't stop after you solve one thing. You keep going, you find a new way and a new path, try to do better and create better. Tearing something down isn't the end; doing something great, or better, something right, is.

jmtrivera Or maybe there isn't such a thing as an end goal at all. You accomplish something, and then you shift, ready to accomplish the next. You keep solving one problem after another until you change the world. 4mo

I definitely liked this in a different way from Warcross. In this one, it was like things had already fallen apart, & I was trying to figure out, along with Emi, what the process for putting things back together would look like. I liked how that road went, mainly because I really liked Emi's relationships w/the people around her. Relationships are the best part of this book, & Lu makes them really meaningful. I had a really good time reading this!

Unlike Warcross, there wasn't a months long waiting list. Now I know why. While I couldn't put Warcross down, Wild Card dragged on. Sure there was more action. But I really wanted to more about Zero, and why he was out to get Hideko. Was hoping there would be more complications in regards to Emika/Hideko.

Still, satisfactory dystopian fiction.

I didn't expect to like this book, tbh. I have a love-hate relationship with Marie Lu's books. I absolutely loved The Young Elites, i almost liked Warcross (xdxd) and i hated the Legend trilogy. But Wildcard was a great surprise. The first half was like Warcross for me, it didn't tell me anything. But the second half was pretty good. And the ending was perfect in my opinion, it was even realistic, which has been a big plus.

Fun follow-up to Warcross. Near future video game inspired SF / YA that has a stronger story than Ready Player One (sans 80's nostalgia overload) and a female POC lead that doesn't constantly remind the reader that the main character IS a femaile POC. Emika Chen just is. Highly recommended.

Now that Hideo‘s algorithm is affecting most of the population, Emika must work quickly in an uneasy alliance with Zero to stop him.

I don‘t know why, but this one was much harder to get into. And it felt really disjointed. There were lots of twists, but it felt like each one was chosen to stretch the plot out.

I wasn‘t any more invested in the romance than I was in book 1. Emika works best as a MC for me when she‘s with her friends. 🌕🌕🌕🌑🌑

This book is great, at first few chapters it was a bit slow but after 5 or 7 chapters it become good story, i love the revelation at certain chapters, and also the last part. I think i'll #miss the nice characters in warcross and wildcard.

It only took me 1,000 years to read this. Unfortunately, I had the worst reading dry spell through the first 50% of this. I checked it out from the library multiple times. I‘m finally crawling out of my reading slump and happy to say that Marie Lu has done it again - this was such a great book and such a fitting conclusion to the series. I got chills at the ending! 🕹

A good second instalment but I actually enjoyed the first book more than this one. Wildcard felt a little flat in certain areas and I felt that the main character lost a bit of her edge here but I did love the VR world building.

I went to BN this weekend to try and get some new books for my husband. I of course ended up wandering over to my section as well. I found a signed edition of wildcard, I'll wrap it and put it under the tree...
But I also was approched by a teenager who asked me if I could reccomend any books. I could see them trying to run away after the first 30 minutes of me gushing about the illumine files, the diabolic, ect. But I couldnt shut up!

Yes yes all of the yes! I love an author that knows how to end a series. Knows how to keep it suspensful and yet tie all the knots together. Lu did that with this novel! I had so many questions at the end of this book. I honeslty didn‘t know if she could do it. I am so happy that she was able to bring so many elements together to end this novel.
