The God Game | Danny Tobey

The God Game is Ready Player One meets Nerve. Is it possible that GOD exists through a computer. The game promises extravagant rewards for winning, but losing will bring serious consequences.
I enjoyed it and it was hard to put down. I could see this being made into a movie.
Thank you to @stmartinspress for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!

“It‘s not a matter if we have prejudices-we do. It‘s a matter of understanding those instincts and fighting against them.”

I couldn‘t put this one down. @aeskens has a way of making you feel like you‘re living right in the story and creates such compelling characters. This will be a great read for high school English/Literature classes and book clubs. #goodreadschallenge

Soo, I had to mainly listen 🎧 to this one because I‘m Reading a ton of different books right now for work events! This novel was totally outside my normal genre, but I did like the historical/fantasy aspect of it. I will be recommending it to my Teen Read-a-Latte group! 📚 thanks for reading with me!

Books are a light. A light that melts ignorance and hate. They show new paths to take. Or, for some the depth of seemingly unfixable brokenness. Books illuminate something different for all of us. Books change lives because they‘re matches, starting fires that show the grandness of the world, depths of others, a path for us to see ourselves.

here‘s a few options I was contemplating about selecting for the next #LMPBC #groupK

LibrarianRyan Humm. Beware the wild and witness protection look fun. Why does everyone else think. 2mo
LibrarianRyan Just a note, when you use tagging you do one name after the other. You only do them individually when you are typing them. It keeps popping a notice for me and I‘m guessing that might be why. (edited) 2mo

IndoorDame Beware the wild and witness protection would be my picks as well :) 2mo
ambam1987 @LibrarianRyan whoops! Sorry about that...hopefully I fixed it now? 2mo
