I can tell something I like after some time in the story though others are repulsive before the end of the first chapter. this was really good but I could not stand the performer. It's not that she's bad, her enunciation is just so hard to listen to. and her speech cadence is so fast. I wonder if she paid too much attention to saying entire sentences with a single breath that she skips over adjatives or clobbers them into a single word. The writing is so detailed that I really wished she spent more time saying the words clearly, but I also blame the editing rather than her. as for the story bizarre but good.

Eliza's parents are relentless - forcing her to constantly take extra courses to prepare for college and medical school. Sometimes, it feels like her entire life has already been planned out. Which is why she leaps at the chance to escape into a new virtual reality game, Awaken Online. What she wasn't expecting was to encounter a capricious god and his loyal "pet". Or to be chosen as this god's "avatar" within the game and forced to tackle a series of asinine quests. Yet she just can't shake the feeling that there is more to the irritating god than first meets the eye.

I couldn't get through it, I love the first story in the series and rileys personal adventure. those were awesome epic and did things. this one felt like bagwell wanted to fill out how odd the hippie god is and I really can't stand his baloney. I think a much better story could have been about Jason's best friend. show his adventure and dealing with his uptight family.

Runner has a problem. He and 499,000 men and women are trapped in a game. He also just happens to be the only person from IT who could log everyone out safely. And he doesn't remember his password. He, like everyone else in this nightmare, had his memory scrambled or lost in the process of being loaded into the game. A single garbled message is his only clue to how to save everyone. The problem is that whoever loaded them into the game loaded their minds completely.

For hundreds of years, dark clouds covered the skies of Adamah, and an ageless king ruled. Those who emerged with one of six extraordinary Shay powers were forced into the king's army, an unmatched force with inhuman strength, speed, accuracy, perception, empathy, and healing. With the army behind him, the king - a man who wields all six abilities - was invincible and unquestioned in his rule.

Not a bad story, and the magic system was somewhat original. though it felt like was trying to channel Brandon Sanderson's types of magic. at the end of the day I was bored by a cunning, cowardly MC and a lovesick puppy sidekick. I've lost my taste for teen romance in the previous years. I'm going to keep the book and in the future maybe I'll finish it.

It's an OP MC story, and while I had a lot of fun with some of the elements, the MC seemed like a super mix of everyone from Ocean's eleven. and that's most likely because a lot of the characters are heavily based in tropes. The series plot about the ancients and what not seemed to have potential but I'm not sure I'm that invested in the characters to continue. all in all a good book to enjoy when your favorites aren't available.

Tim and his friends find out the hard way that you shouldn't question the game master, and you shouldn't make fun of his cape. One minute, they're drinking away the dreariness of their lives, escaping into a fantasy game and laughing their asses off. The next minute, they're in a horse-drawn cart surrounded by soldiers pointing crossbows at them.

Meet Threadbare. He is 12 inches tall, full of fluff, and really, really bad at being a hero. Magically animated and discarded by his maker as a failed experiment, he is saved by a little girl. But she's got problems of her own, and he might not be able to help her. Fortunately for the little golem, he's quick to find allies, learn skills, gain levels, and survive horrible predicaments. Which is good, because his creator has a whole lot of enemies …

Pretty much everything. Just ask Brit, who has jumped around in time with such abandon that she has to coexist with multiple versions of herself. Now, Brit the Elder finds that her memories don't match Brit the Younger's.

Mr. Meyer does it again with slick humor and an objectively strange reality. this one doesn't have a happy ending but he's setting it up for either a fantastic sequel or a magnificent finale. I am looking forward to either.

Ryker only has one goal in his life right now: Turn a certain adventuring guild into a flaming wreck while dancing merrily through the smoldering ruins. All for the chance to get back at a handful of people. It isn’t as if they didn’t deserve it either. They had driven him from his home. Chased him physically from the very guild house itself.  Simply because he wasn’t as strong as they expected him to be. As strong as he’d expected himself to be. He’d returned the next day and left with something he’d hidden away and told no one about when he found it in one of his few Dungeon Dives.

I feel like this story was too rushed, not near enough focus on descriptions, and then too much screwing around with the whole spontaneous harem, marriage, multi wife, and distant lover nonsense. can I get a story without males that are solo motivated by revenge power and sexual gratification?
