Resonance by @Erica_ORourke Review @simonteen

Resonance (Dissonance #2)
Release date: July 21, 2015
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Genre: YA Sci-Fi/Romance
Series: Dissonance #2


As a Walker between worlds, Del is responsible for the love of her life—and the fate of millions—in this thrilling sequel to Dissonance.

Del risked everything to save Simon, and now he’s gone, off in another world with no way for Del to find him.

She’s back at the Consort—training to be a Walker like everyone in her family. But the Free Walkers have other plans for her. This rebel group is trying to convince Del that the Consort is evil, and that her parents are unwittingly helping the Consort kill millions of people. The Free Walkers make Del the ultimate promise: if Del joins their fight, she will be reunited with Simon.

In agreeing, Del might be endangering her family. But if she doesn’t, innocent people will die, and Simon will be lost to her forever. The fate of the multiverse depends on her choice...



My Rating: 4 Roses

A sequel that revealed quite a few secrets, Resonance was an excellent YA read. There were plenty of twists and unexpected surprises, along with a great story and sweet romance. I really liked this book.

Crash by @Eve_Silver Review @harperteen

Crash (The Game, #3)
Release date: June 9, 2015
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Genre: YA Sci-Fi/Romance
Series: The Game #3

Fans of the 5th Wave series will devour the pulse-pounding conclusion to The Game trilogy by bestselling author Eve Silver, about teens pulled in and out of an alternate reality where battling aliens is more than a game—it's life and death.

As her dad and best friend lie dying in the hospital, Miki is almost certain the Committee is trying to sabotage her life. The Game is glitching. The missions are more frequent, the alien Drau more deadly, and whatever has been tracking her thoughts more intrusive. The only thing holding Miki together is her boyfriend, Jackson, but somehow telling him how much she needs—and loves—him feels like the most terrifying challenge of all.

Can Miki and Jackson make it through the final mission alive and win the Game before the walls between their alien-fighting nightmares and the real world come crashing down? Or will the world and everyone Miki loves disappear forever?

Crash is the fiercely satisfying conclusion to a trilogy Pittacus Lore, New York Times bestselling author of the I Am Number Four series, raves is packed with "thrilling action and addictive romance—a mind-bending rush of a read!"



My Rating: 5 Roses

A thrilling conclusion to the series, Crash was a fantastic YA read. It upped the stakes, revealed many more secrets, and completed the series with a great ending. I really liked it and I thought it was a top-notch read.

Farewell, My Friends

To my dearest followers,

Some of you might have noticed by now that things have been slowing down at Imagine a World. Less post have been going up and less of those have been reviews. Why? I'm simply too busy to be able to focus on reviewing and it's only gotten worse now that I'm beginning the process of moving.

So, I will be leaving Imagine a World. While it makes me sad to leave the blog that I've been on for three years, I've thought a lot about it and came to the conclusion that I can't devote as much time as would be needed to keep running Imagine a World. And that time would be better served getting the copious amount of work I've been getting done. I'll be posting a few more things for tours that I have already scheduled and I'll be hanging around the reviewing world but I'll be on the sidelines instead.

As a side note, should anyone like to take over running Imagine a World, feel free to contact me at farrahsayyed@gmail.com. I'm very fond of this blog and I would love to see it continue to run even after I leave it. Whoever takes over running Imagine a World would also be able to use the Netgalley and Edelweiss accounts associated with it. If anyone's interested, let me know.

To my followers, thank you for sticking with me. I'm sad to go but I think it's the right decision for me. Best wishes to you all :)

The Leveller by Julia Durango Review @harperteen @julia_durango

The Leveller (The Leveller, #1)
Release date: June 23, 2015
Publisher: Harper Teen
Genre: YA Sci-Fi/Romance
Series: The Leveller #1


Nixy Bauer is a self-made Leveller. Her job? Dragging kids out of virtual reality and back to their parents in the real world. It’s normally easy cash, but Nixy’s latest mission is fraught with real danger, intrigue, and romance.

Nixy Bauer is used to her classmates being very, very unhappy to see her. After all, she’s a bounty hunter in a virtual reality gaming world. Kids in the MEEP, as they call it, play entirely with their minds, while their bodies languish in a sleeplike state on the couch. Irritated parents, looking to wrench their kids back to reality, hire Nixy to jump into the game and retrieve them.

But when the game’s billionaire developer loses track of his own son in the MEEP, Nixy is in for the biggest challenge of her bounty-hunting career. Wyn Salvador isn’t some lazy kid looking to escape his homework: Wyn does not want to be found. And he’s left behind a suicide note. Nixy takes the job but quickly discovers that Wyn’s not hiding—he’s being held inside the game against his will. But who is holding him captive, and why?

Nixy and Wyn attempt to fight their way out of a mind game unlike any they’ve encountered, and the battle brings them closer than either could have imagined. But when the whole world is virtual, how can Nixy possibly know if her feelings are real?

Gamers and action fans of all types will dive straight into the MEEP, thanks to Julia Durango’s cinematic storytelling. A touch of romance adds some heart to Nixy’s vivid, multidimensional journey through Wyn’s tricked-out virtual city, and constant twists keep readers flying through to the breathtaking end.



My Rating: 5 Roses

With thrills, twists, and a bit of romance, The Leveller was a fantastic YA read that I really enjoyed. From the expansive setting to the betrayals and secrets agendas, this book was excellent and I really loved it.
