Debut author Katharine McGee has created a breathtakingly original series filled with high-tech luxury and futuristic glamour, where the impossible feels just within reach. But in this world, the higher you go, the farther there is to fall….
Back in July, I won 3 ARCs courtesy of Epic Reads and National Bookstore. To have and hold the book even before its publication date is such a delight to bookworms! Among the 3 that I got, I started with The Thousandth Floor and I’m having a book slump because the world which Katharine McGee, the author, has created is much closer to the future and might likely to happen.
So here are the reasons why I love The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee:
1. The Thousandth Floor is not that sci-fi or dystopian. Maybe a slight hint of both but not really close to fall in that genre. For me it’s YA contemporary set in the future.
2. The story is narrated in 5 alternating POVs – characters mentioned above are the ones who, but it’s in third person narration. Do I make any sense?
3. Though set in the future, the teenagers in the story are pretty much dealing with the life issues everyone has dealt with…
4. However, it’s not that boring. Hold your eyes rolling! There’s more to teenage drama and stuff. Judge until you get to the plot twist!
5. Most of the characters may be living a very luxurious lives but they have secrets too. I love the part where my mind is working to solve the mystery and stuff. Think Pretty Little Liars.
6. You may have read this in most reviews and might you find it cliché, but it’s the futuristic Gossip Girl! Imagine the fab and lush life of Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf…
7. Plus the hot guys (!!!) You’ll discover book baes. I swear you wanna meet them in person and date them… and be in a relationship with them… but they’re just fictional. WHY? I’m still calling it dibs on the five-letter-named guy with A at the beginning.
8. Fashion statements. Hey, the book launch/signing was held at Times Square Forever 21. Just imagine… *sigh*
9. THE COVER! I may have the ARC but the cover isn’t there yet. Gold and black ✨ Stare at the aesthetic. Stare!
The Thousandth Floor is the book 1 of the trilogy, I guess? But the author is currently drafting on the 2nd – I don’t know how long should I wait. But I’m excited for you guys to read the book. Tell me what you think in the comments below *wink*
