Review: The Thousandth Floor (The Thousandth Floor #1)by Katharine McGee
The Thousandth Floor - Katharine McGee

Syno

 

 

New York City as you’ve never seen it before. A thousand-story tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible—if you want it enough.

Welcome to Manhattan, 2118.

A hundred years in the future, New York is a city of innovation and dreams. But people never change: everyone here wants something…and everyone has something to lose.

Leda Cole’s flawless exterior belies a secret addiction—to a drug she never should have tried and a boy she never should have touched.

Eris Dodd-Radson’s beautiful, carefree life falls to pieces when a heartbreaking betrayal tears her family apart.

Rylin Myers’s job on one of the highest floors sweeps her into a world—and a romance—she never imagined…but will her new life cost Rylin her old one?

Watt Bakradi is a tech genius with a secret: he knows everything about everyone. But when he’s hired to spy by an upper-floor girl, he finds himself caught up in a complicated web of lies.

And living above everyone else on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all—yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have.

Debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….

 

 

 

My Thoughts

 

This book was way different from what I normally read, which why I kind of picked it. I needed a short break in my normal genre. And honestly it was like reading a soap opera, with all the different over the top lifestyles and drama and angst. This book packed full of teem drama and angst. The writing was fun and easy to follow and honestly one of the reason I stayed with the book, even with all the drama and angst that made me roll my eyes more than once or even twice lol. We follow few people in this book, from the rich spoiled kids from the most upper floors all the way down to the lower and poor people floors. Some lose their money in the story others gain access to the upper levels and then some are just shady. I think all the different people, personalities and voices made it just so much more fun to follow along. I also liked the future tech we get in this book, but sometimes it was just a bit too focused on that and not the people and it got a bit too much. Not sure yet if it just was because it’s the first book in the series and introduces us to the tech or if that will stay that way. I guess I will find out in the next book. Overall, not the greatest book but fun and interesting enough to keep me reading it, all the drama helped too. I will continue on the series to see how it all turns out for them.

I rate it 3 ★

Fever - Review
The Fever: A Novel - Megan Abbott

 

 

Sometimes it felt like parenting amounted to a series of questionable decisions, one after another.

-Chapter 4

 

Also: I'm thinking about the lake. What if u r right. What if it was in the lake. What if it is in us.

-Chapter 9

 

Good book, if you don't go into it thinking there might be something supernatural involved.

 

This book was recommended to me by a friend as "the kind of book you would like". And it is, but.... I looked at the cover and it looked like the story would be scary or at least have a supernatural component. Let's just say, it didn't.

 

So, on the basis of the story itself, the book is good. Set in a small town, one girl has a seizure with unknown causes and ends up in the hospital in a coma. As other girls begin getting sick, parents begin questioning things and guessing about what might be the cause of the girls' problems. Parents are understandably worried about the girls, and the girls are freaked out.

 

The story is told from the point of view of one of the teenage girls, her brother and her father. You get to see how each of them deals with the sickness that seems to be taking over the teenage girls in town. The brother wants to be a good man and he wants to protect his sister. The father, of course, wants to protect his children but he doesn't know what he is protecting them from. The girl is trying to figure out why her best friends are being affected and she isn't.

 

I didn't see the final reveal coming. But, I spent most of the book trying to figure out what evil force was responsible for the sickness. The cause ends up being twisted and surprising but not supernatural.

 

Recommended to:

People who like reading about teenage girl drama and issues. Just don't expect anything remotely magical.

Another Cliffhanger ?!?!??!
Alienated - Melissa Landers

Yes, it is another one that just stopped mid paragraph, mid action, in the middle of everything ! I am cursed.

Good audiobook, semi predictable teen drama with some teen angst, alien hate, and a corrupt government.

Will I read book 2 ? If they have it at the library maybe
