Midbook Review: Frags (Thomas Carpenter)


Well, there doesn't seem to be any synopsis on Goodreads (odd), so I'll have to give a run down of the book before I can say what I think so far.

FragsFrist, I thought the first book-- Gamers-- was awesome. I'm not a huge sci-fi fan, but this one combines the best of science fiction with a dystopian setting. Instant awesomeness. In Gamers, the main character-- Gabby-- has to survive LifeGame to get the ultimate coding job. But there is something amiss about LifeGame and the Coders. Not to mention that anyone that doesn't "win" the game disappears to the mysterious unknown. Enter Gabby's best friend Z. She doesn't win LifeGame. In a fit of panic, Gabby leaves the city and is picked up by a group of rogues called Frags.

This book picks up with Gabby living with the Frags and trying to find out what happens to the contestants that don't beat LifeGame. There are some super shady characters, especially the head Coder. They are constantly following Gabby and the Frags, trying to capture them for some evil, ill purposed reason.

And that's where I'm at so far. Normally, I am a pro at figuring out plots, but this time I am stumped. I can honestly say I don't know where there is heading. Gabby has gone rogue, but I can't shake the feeling that she's not really alone. Oh, and btw... Gabby is awesome. She's brilliant, defiant, but also caring and extremely conflicted. The other characters are great as well. Except for one. I can't figure Mouse out. She seems to be the weakest link, but I hope I'm wrong.

So far, this one is another 4. It has been action packed since the first chapter, with no lulls. I love that. It's a total page turner. If you like Scott Westerfield's Pretties series, you would like this series. It has a similar feel, but has nothing in common with the latter.

Blog Tour: A Perilous Journey of Danger and Mayhem (Christopher Healy)

It is 1883—the Age of Invention! A time when great men like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Nicola Tesla, and George Eastman work to turn the country into a mechanical-electrical-industrial marvel: a land of limitless opportunity. And it all happens at the world famous Inventors Guild headquarters in New York City—a place where a great idea, a lot of hard work, and a little bit of luck can find you rubbing elbows with these gods of industry who will usher humanity into the bright promise of the future.
Unless, of course, you’re a woman.
Molly Pepper, daughter of brilliant but unknown inventor Cassandra Pepper, lives with her mother in New York.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
