Can't Wait Wednesday: Warcross by Marie Lu

Can't Wait Wednesday is hosted by Wishful Endings Book Blog. Let's discuss those books we "Can't Wait For"
But 1st! I literally feel like the WORST BOOK BLOGGER EVER! I never really wait for books.

a) Because there is a great long pile of books on my shelf at home I still haven't read
b) Because there's a ton of books on my TBR already, that I desperately want to read
c) Honestly, unless it's the last book in the series, I only care minimally, because of A and B
d) If it is the last book in the series, I probably forgot everything that happened come before it.
e) Waiting on books really psyches me out, raises the expectations and ruins the experience.
f) Last but not least, I can't afford, my wallet or my time to buy and read every single book I find interesting, as is a Book Lovers way.

With all of that being said, I CANNOT WAIT for this book!!!

I was tricked! I'd thought Warbringer was Warcross as both authors were to be in discussion, and I didn't even know Warbringer was coming out. (see worst book blogger) Until I actually purchased the book. 

Why I'm excited for Warcross. I loved Legend as much as I hated The Young Elites. 

I'm positive Marie Lu is an amazing author. 

The Young Elites is a prime story of WAITING that psyched me out. I couldn't get into the story. One day I plan to read it again. 

So I can wait 6 days, enough time to finish Warbringer and get over the inevitable book hangover to devour this beauty. 

The Synopsis:
For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.
