This was such an awesome book. I loved the hacking, the mystery/thriller part, the romance,... All of that was seriously great, but I didn't like the fact that I kind of suspected who the bad buy was, and I was right. This would've been a 5 star book if I had absolutely no idea until the very end. But it's still great!
Wicket is an outsider. Someone the rich people like the call 'Trash'. She has a bad attitude and loves sarcasm. She and her sister live with their foster parents Bren and Todd. Wick earns some money hacking for other women to spy on their boyfriends/husbands. One day, she receives a diary of a girl she used to be friends with, before her deadbeat dad disappeared. In that diary she finds the words 'Find Me'. Pretty freaky, but that same day, that girl is found dead. She committed suicide. A morbid game of hide & seek follows. She can count on Griff to help her but, when her dad returns, it only makes things more complicated.
The writing was pretty good in this book. Although it was a tiny bit predictable as for who the bad guy was, the author kept me on edge and I was still wondering what was going on. It had me hooked. Plus the hacking is awesome. I don't know a thing about that stuff, but I love reading about it. And the romance was great too. It wasn't rushed or anything in my opinion.
I loved Wick. Seriously. I love her sarcasm and her "don't-care" attitude. And she's an awesome hacker. That too. I adored Lily. She's such a bright and adorable girl! It's hard not to love and adore her. It really is. Griff was cool. He's funny and cute and he's pretty sweet for Wick. The romance wasn't the main focus, which was great, because that would've taken away a lot from the suspense if it was.
OH I loved the little fragments from Tessa's diary at the start of each chapter. A bit creepy, but still cool. And the cover is also cool.
This book kept me on edge and I almost couldn't put it away just because I had to figure out the truth. Which is a pretty amazing thing to accomplish with me. I recommend this for fans of the genre. Fans of books about hacking will most likely also love this.

BookLikes Welcomes New Book Lovers :-) And now let's start reading.
We all know the saying Don't judge a book by its cover. Well, last night when I was thinking all the drama going on, I thought of this other version of that. Don't know if it already exists or not, but I don't care.
Don't judge a book by its author!
Yes. Don't do that! I know there are some (okay, a lot.) of authors out there that are paranoid and mean whenever they read a negative review. That's why this drama on Goodreads started in the first place. But, there's a but. That shouldn't stop you from reading a book! I read a comment from a girl somewhere that she found some of her favorite books of all time by those negative reviews. And I have too! So when an author is behaving like a bitch or whatever, don't cancel out the book! The book can't help it and it may be awesome!
I know we all look at the cover a bit, but just ignore the name. It's the words inside that cover that count. Savvy?
Love that 'Shelve it!' option! :D Don't know what I'm talking about?
Go to Shelf (on top of the page, next to the search bar).
There you see 'Shelve it!' really small.
Now drag that to your bookmarks bar and whenever you're on Amazon or one of the other site listed there under the question mark and you see a book you like, just click on that Shelve It button in your bookmarks.
and you get redireced to BookLikes and you can add it to your shelves! :D
Pretty cool. Goodreads should have a feature like this.
So if you've added book to Goodreads after the import was complete, you can shelve them like this! :D Don't know how to import your books? Check this post!
309/943 books imported...
That's actually moving along quick :D But I love the gif so.
Reblogging, this may help some people who are importing their lists from GR.
So you want to start using BookLikes, but the prospect of manually adding your ENTIRE library of books/reviews is daunting, to say the least. Do not fear. There's an easy way to your entire book list and reviews from GoodReads and import it into BookLikes. Here is how.
Exactly! And I'm enjoying both now! What are you reading?
This post. All of this. My sentiments exactly. I could not have said it better.
Check out an all new Cover Mania. This week with a very popular and gorgeous cover!

*I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for review. Thanks!*
Oh my god this is such a difficult book to rate. It was a cool, original story with fun characters, written pretty great… But despite that, I couldn’t connect with the story or the characters. Hence the lower rating. And I feel so bad for that, but I can’t help it.Nerissa is the main character in Waterfell and she’s not just a normal girl. Nerissa is to be the queen of Waterfell, the undersea kingdom stolen from her the day her father was murdered. So she hides in a human form until the day she comes of age and can claim her birthright. It’s only logic that falling in love with a boy is the last thing she should do, but somehow Lo sneaks past her defenses and she can’t help but falling for him. But will he hold her back when it comes to getting her thrown back, or will he help her win?
This is a cool story, let me say that first. It’s original and exciting and pretty awesome. And even though it was kind of slow in the beginning, it’s really engaging. And I loved the background information and the history of the Aquarathi. But I would have liked more mermaid-ish action and like I mentioned in the beginning, I couldn’t connect to it. The writing is very good, that’s not it. I don’t know why I couldn’t connect with the story. Maybe because of the way the romance started? You know, it’s kind of typical, a sort of insta-love. And afterwards you get it, sort of. But when you’re reading it, it annoys the hell of you. Nerissa acts like she hates Lo and can’t stand him, but actually she does and actually she likes him a lot. I really didn’t like that.You know, a soon-to-be Aquarathi queen of an underwater kingdom called Waterfell isn’t easy to relate to. I think that’s one of the other reasons I couldn’t connect to the story.
I didn’t really like Nerissa and she’s not really relatable. I liked Jenna, her best friend. She was fun and sweet and a normal teen, thus pretty relatable. (Except for the having-a-mermaid-as-best-friend part.) And I liked Lo, but I didn’t trust him. And I had a reason for that too. Always knew there was something fishy about him. And yeah Speio was okay too, but he acted like the jealous boyfriend the whole time, which was irritating. And then he betrays Nerissa, which didn’t make sense at all.
So this is a really good book and I definitely recommend it to fans of mermaid stories. It’s a shame I couldn’t connect to it as much as I wanted too, but that doesn’t mean the story is bad. So give it a shot! It’s definitely worth it.
