WARCROSS REVIEW // MARUE LU WRECKED MY MIND + LOTS OF SCREAMING.

I think that I’m in love and that i should have waited for the next one to be released because I WANT THE NEXT ONE SO BAD CAN I JUST CALM DOWN? NO.   I’ll try. . .

EXPLOSIONS!! BLACKOUTS!! HACKERS!! WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT??IMG_1882

EMIKA → LOVE HER.

“Everyone had a different way of escaping the dark stillness of their mind. This, I learned, was mine.”

SHE’S FABULOUS. I found her to be a smidge full of herself  at times??? Like, she had 0 self-doubt, which isn’t a BAD thing, but yeh, IT WAS LIKE SHE COULD SO EVERYTHINGGGGG ALL THE TIME AND I’M LIKE. . . SLOW DOWN YEH???

 AWESOME HAIR. Sososososoosososoooooo awesome — it’s RAINBOW COLOURED!! I WANT!!

Sometimes she jumped into things without really thinking about the consequences, but that made the book really INTENSE AND I LIKED THAT??? IMG_1882

Speaking of things that I like, I REALLY LIKED THE WORLD I think that it was really well built and explained, and i could picture things so clearly and I don’t even know how this is not a real thing becauseI really want WARCROSS to be a real thing because it sounds so cool and kjregb;rgruirbgbgrbe WHY ISN’T REAL?? MARIE LU YOU BETRAYED MEEEEE.

AND SPEAKING OF FREAKING BETRAYAL. . . THERE’S A HUGE PLOT TWIST AND RGBIRGUBSGRK. I did not see that coming.

There were 3 major plot twists towards the end, I thinkkkk and I only figured out one, but it was still SO SHOCKING AND RGB;SEBGR. There was so much tension and i loved it so much.

AHHHHHHHHHH Hideo Tanaka. . . At first I thought “who does this guy think he is??? I mean, sure he’s a 21 y/o BILLIONAIRE, but he’s so damn condescending.” I thought that, to put it politely, a schmuck*. However, as we got to know him, i really pitied him and quite quickly I really started to like him. He’s MUCH deeper than he seems, and there’s this sad story from his past and awwww I JUST WANTED TO HUG HIM SO BAD. And in the end. . . I CANT EVEN BECAUSE SPOILERS: (select the space here onwards to reveal)SO MUCH BETRAYAL . . . UgH WHY IS HE SO BAD. . . BUT AT THE SAME TIME I FEEL REALLY BAD BECAUSE HE’S DOING THIS ALL OUT OF FEAR AND I CAN’T REALLY HATE HIM BECAUSE HE’S JUST TRYING TO MAKE THE WORLD SAFE, BUT AT THE  SAME TIME HE’S controlling people!!. . .*(THE HOLIDAY MOVIE REFERENCE!!)

The evil people were brilliant!! Okay Ren, I should hate you but I find you cool, okay?IMG_1882

DID I MENTION THE AMAZING WARCROSS THING??

I did BUT I’M MENTIONING IT AGAIN!! It’s so smart!! And a realistic future?? I ACTUALLY THINK THAT THIS COULD ALL HAPPEN EVENTUALLY. It was so well DEVELOPED AND ORGANISED and you would think that with all the computer / coding stuff you’d get really confused, BUT NO.

AHHH the writing was so fast paced, yet I didn’t get lost, and so lovely to read??? Everything WAS SO CLEAR in my mind the writing was BREATHTAKING and I don’t evenknow how Marie Lu did that. . .  SHE’S A GENIUS.

There was so much FOOD (YUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYUMYMYUMYUMYUM) in this book, I loved it so much. I ate vicariously through the characters. YES, I CAN DO THAT. I’M THAT POWERFUL.There was this little robot that gave everyone their food and it was so adorable. Can someone just send me all the food from this book please??? PLEASE

PLEASE????

PLEASE???????

Little issue: I don’t think that the other side characters were developed enough?? Yes, it would have slowed down the book’s pace a bit… but i think that it would have been really nice to get to know more of the personalities of the other people??? Yehhh that’s like the ONLY slight issue I have with this book. . .

chat with me

What did you think of Warcross? Is it on your TBR?? What do you think Marie Lu’s books?? Let me know in the comments!!

Luuuuuuu

  1. Warcross was… EMOTIONALLY DESTROYING??!!?!
    I mean, I did see one plot twist coming. But THAT plot twist- ASJDHXL I CAN’T EVEN.
    And I though Marie Lu had already destroyed my heart… but she does it again.

  2. OMG YESSSS THE PLOT TWISTS REALLY TOYED WITH MY MIND. I feel like I’m the only one who DIDN’T guess any of them, I’m so dumb XD and I loved Emika so much!!! Her rainbow hair is just GOALS I wish I could pull it off!!! And I really liked Hideo from the beginning! He was condescending but he’s rich and fancy so… it was kind of hot XD

  3. Hi! It’s obvious you adored this book XD I have to say the closest I’ve been to Marie Lu’s work is her illustrations in Gemina, but I’ve been meaning to read something by her for SOOO long. So I may pick up Warcross, or The Young Elites… decisions. Thanks for the review!

    1. Hi!
      regubrgreg omg Marie Lu did the illustrations??? HRJRSVRDGK WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW THIS HOW DID I NOT??

      SDJHFFEH I’m currently reading The Young Elites, and I’m not very far in but, I personally think that Warcross is much faster pace, and idk, I just seemed to like the beginning more than the beginning of TYE. However, lots of people who have read other marie Lu books think that this isn’t her best work??? I dunno if that helps your decision??

  5. Seeing so many people who have loved this book really makes me that much more desperate to read it. I actually took it out from the library but I have to return it tomorrow and haven’t had the chance to read it yet 😦 I swear I will get to this soon – especially after seeing how much you loved it!

  6. I love finding other people that love the same books as I do and just as much. I loved Warcross and it’s one of my top 5 reads so far this year. My husband and I are listening to the audiobook now when we’re in the car and that’s been really fun, too. I can’t wait for book two.

  9. I don’t think this was Marie Lu’s BEST WORK because the characters –> 1)NO SIDE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT 2)people were sometimes a bit too perfect BUT OTHER THAN THAT THIS BOOK ACED IT!!! ❤ LOVE YOUR REVIEW BUT I LOVE EMIKA CHEN MORE.

    And Luuu THE YOUNG ELITESSS?? I see you reading alll these books at once and NOOO PLEASE DON'T DO THIS. Just focus on one book? OTHERWISE IT STRESSES ME OUT

    1. Yes!! I agree, I think that there should have been more side development and I would have liked to know MORE about them because I think that it would’ve made their friendships(??? were they really even friends?? IDK BC NO DEVELOPMENT)
      And yesss I think that Emika was too good?? Like the others are understandable bc they had played war cross so many times before but she hadn’t and she was so good so fast and it didn’t really make sense!!

      OMG YES OKAY. so TYE. . . I don’t know what it is BUT I CANNOT get past pg 90. I literally read 2 pages and then put it back down again WHAT IS THIS.
