Date published: October 8, 2015
My life is spinning out of control faster than I can say sorry for all the things I’ve done since this whole planetary shift began.
Like apologize for the fact I made out with my soon-to-be stepbrother. And his stepbrother. And that I’m crushing on the one guy I swore I’d never be into…while keeping it all from my BFF.
Mom says I think the world revolves around me, but the truth is, I’m just trying to survive the worst week of my life.
The universe is legit out to get me. It started when my gaming nemesis deleted my AsteroMine galaxy and it’s only gone downhill from there.
It isn’t my fault. I swear.
I'm pretty busy right now, but I planned on reading this in December when I had a couple weeks off. As you may be able to tell, it is not December yet. I couldn't even make it a month without reading this.
5% into the story, and I knew I would love it. Do you mean character is a teenager girl obsessed with a video game. That is basically my life. Although I am no longer teenager, most of teen years were spend online playing video games.
There is a whole of a lot of drama in this book. Maggie, the main character, is trying to figure out how to balance her obsession with this game and real life. I have been there.
I met my husband on an online game. I tried to kill his character off shortly after we first met. We went from never talking, to talking online all the time, to talking on the phone all the time. The majority of our conversations were about the game, at first. But then things changed, we met in real life, and long story short we just celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary.
This is the exact kind of nerdy romance that I have always wanted to read, because I can relate to it. This was fantastic, I loved it, and I had a huge grin on my face during the entire last 10% or so.
