Wildcard is the sequel to Warcross, which tells the story of Emika Chen who accidentally hacks into the opening ceremony of the Warcross championships. Because of this, she is quickly swept off to Tokyo to work for the creator of …

It's awesome to be able to read book reviews. There is something about the written word that not only is able to capture its reader when in book form, but reviews can also achieve this goal. Whether those reviews are about movies, music or books, it's amazing that words can capture the attention of readers and inspire others. But, in…

February was a horrible reading month for me. I didn’t read a single book. And the book I had started to read at the end of January didn’t get picked up again until this month. I think I’m going to blame it on getting into the groove of school and working but really there is no excuse. I’m so glad…
