Really did enjoy this! Ready Player One is probably one of my favorite books. I was really looking forward to this one. I knew going in that this would not be as good but I did enjoy it. I think this book would make for a great movie! I rated it 4 stars!

This is one of my favorite graphic novels. I started in reading the twilight princess series and then I was introduced to this most amazing book. If you are into graphic novels and fantasy fiction then this is a perfect book. 10/10 would recommend. It deals with a boy who is chosen to save a princess and has vary limited time to do so and he travels to many areas to complete his mission.

Well, this was an interesting concept, but not the greatest execution. The MC, Simon, really got on my nerves, I actually wish the book had been written from Kat‘s POV. I don‘t think I will be reading the other books in the series.

It is my FINAL ✔️ for #popsugar2019! 🎉🎉 This fills the #LitRPG prompt. Also #BBRC #TeenAngst : not appropriate for MG (violence)

Apparently, the universe doesn‘t like our family this week. Poor kiddo‘s bus never showed up at school this afternoon, so I drove in to Charlotte at 6 during rush hour traffic to pick up a car load of bus riders to help bring them home.

So grateful to Aaron‘s office who sent over dinner as a get well gift while he is recovering. It was a life saver tonight! I‘m still wired and wide awake so hoping to finish this book tonight.

LibrarianRyan What happened to the BUS. OMG. Hope your weekend is better. 2w
Crazeedi That's awful! What craziness. 2w
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan @crazeedi Apparently, there was a horrible accident on I-85, which stalled traffic for hours, and it couldn‘t reach the school. Luckily, we take the other local highway to/from her magnet school, so It wasn‘t so bad. 2w

Avanders Oh my *gosh* that‘s terrible! (edited) 2w
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan also, not to sound so nonchalant, but I‘m not completely buying that story, because there is nothing on the local news about an accident. So 🤷🏻‍♀️. The poor school had no contact with the district‘s transportation office since it was after 5pm. It‘s a huge school district, and transportation is not always reliable. 2w
LibrarianRyan @4thhouseontheleft I wouldn‘t believe it either because there should always be someone to take a call at least from the buss driver. Why didn‘t the driver call the school or someone to say hey things are happening. It‘s either a bad company or a bad driver. Sorry you and the kiddos have to deal with that. 2w
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan I will definitely be calling on Monday to find out what really happened, and submitting a complaint. When Maya texted me at 5:00 to say the bus still hadn‘t shown up (school dismissal is 4:15), I called the school and at that time, they had not been able to make contact with driver or main office. I just rolled in, and rolled out when I got there, to get home ASAP. 2w
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan And so grateful we added her to our phone plan this summer! She‘s at a magnet school 1/2 hr (in no traffic) from our home. I added her for exactly this reason, so she had a way to reach us if she ended up stranded anywhere. The bus has also broken down 3 times so far this year. The school systems in NC are SO underfunded. (edited) 2w
Jas16 That is frustrating. I hope that you have a calm, stress free weekend 2w
MallenNC I hope things turn around for you all now! Hope your husband feels better too. 2w
JennyM Here‘s to a relaxing weekend for you all 😘 2w
marleed Oh you need an evening with a book! 2w
ljuliel I hope your week to come will be much better. 2w
4thhouseontheleft @Jas16 @marleed @MallenNC @JennyM @ljuliel Thank you! The rest of the evening was problem-free and I caught up on my 💤 last night. 🎉😄 2w

This is the response to the MC asking a doctor, who had just come into the room, if his friend will recover.

Worst bedside manner EVER.

Such a cute YA graphic novel about a girl who gets sucked into a video game and meets a robot who wants her help to save their digital world. Graley's style is as adorable as always and loved all the adventures and the emphasis on friendship. I was kind of hoping for a different outcome with the big bad, but still. Thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyable!

Mandoul Thanks for the review, really like the sound of this! 4w

From my morning news blurb service. I wonder if they really could control something like this.

tjwill Whoa. 😮 1mo
BGam But i really do think that some sort of control is required.. the problem of video games addiction is real and it is affecting generations.. school and academic work are suffering including social relations. 1mo
LibrarianRyan @BGam I can see that. But isn‘t it the parents responsibility? What‘s the difference between this and kids who watch TV all day? Or adults on their phones and tablets. 1mo

Enchanted_Bibliophile My husband is a gamer and he say it is very possible to control and track this. So maybe China is doing some good? 1mo
Graywacke That‘s weird...and I‘m ready to apply those rules to my son 1mo
jb72 In my opinion that‘s a parent‘s job. The government has no business controlling the personal habits of citizens. While I agree video games and electronic addiction is a real thing, the parents are in charge of their kids. Parents need to set boundaries and examples. 1mo
TheLibrarian Is it wrong that I wish this would be enforced on my husband? But in all seriousness, video game addition is a problem but that's a bit extreme. 1mo
BGam @LibrarianRyan well who is going to control the parents who are themselves on the phone constantly and have no time to talk to their children either.. but ofcourse govt. behaving in this autocratic manner, I don‘t approve either.. (edited) 1mo
BGam Their is a saying.. when they don‘t learn by the rules, teach them with the ruler.. I mean rules and regulations which can do something better for the generation is far better when implemented by the government in general than u having to waste your time and energy fighting with your kids. You can just say “Govt. rules my dear, no phones permitted for the next 5 hrs.. go on, play in the park, plant a tree, do something creative, read a book” 😄 1mo
Hooked_on_books Wow, big brother is really watching in China. Yikes. 1mo
Crimson613 My brother could use a dose of this regulation. Honestly, I feel like it can really help esp with the newer generation that pretty much grew up with technology in their hands. But it's also ridiculous that we've gotten to this point. And with how tight leashed (I hear) things are in China, I think they can do it... 1mo
