Hi

So, classes start up again tomorrow...*sigh*

I'm kind of excited to go back because my school has good food but there's work involved.

Anyway, I was only able to get one new book over the break, Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza. Since this is a relatively little known book, I will be just rating it with no spoilers.




"Mila 2.0 is the first book in an electrifying sci-fi thriller series about a teenage girl who discovers that she is an experiment in artificial intelligence.

Mila was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was a girl living with her mother in a small Minnesota town. She was supposed to forget her past—that she was built in a secret computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.

Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology. However, what Mila’s becoming is beyond anyone’s imagination, including her own, and it just might save her life.

Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza’s bold debut and the first book in a Bourne Identity-style trilogy that combines heart-pounding action with a riveting exploration of what it really means to be human. Fans of I Am Number Four will love Mila for who she is and what she longs to be—and a cliffhanger ending will leave them breathlessly awaiting the sequel."



Overall, I really liked this book. It was exciting and had me on the edge of my seat, even though some parts I seemed to have read before in books like Maximum Ride and Divergent. Even though I don't usually predict what's going to happen in books, I was able to tell what was going to happen....but it was good, don't get me wrong.

My rating: 8.5 / 10

The second book in the series or trilogy (not quite sure there, have to do more research), Renegade comes out on May 13th, so if you read this now, you wouldn't have to wait long for the sequel.
