📚 Ready player one- Because the ‘final fight‘ in this book blew my mind! ===> 😵
🎥 Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter)- The book was even more FIRE though! 👍🏽
🎵 Through the fire- Chaka Khan (one of my all time fave songs)
One of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time. It tapped into my geeky/nerdy side as well as really making me think. A great read!
My brother is house hunting so of course I had to check out the books. This room belongs to a teenage girl and this one just one of her stacks.
Really good book to binge read.
I saw the movie first and I‘m still shocked how different the book is. Not too mad though, because it‘s like a new (and better) adventure!
I‘m such a big fan of 70s and 80 sci-fi/fantasy/video game artwork like this...and y‘all know I geeked out at all the sci-fi references in this book.
I listened to this book as part of the popsugar challenge This book was imaginative and harrowing at the same time. I loved this book so much. There was some inspiring and insightful quotes in this book and the world and characters were highly developed.
LOVED THIS BOOK. I am a huge fan of all the pop-culture references throughout the story; excellent plot, very smooth, action-driven. It was definitely not a slow read! Recommend!
Just finished this one up and in spirit of the book I posed it with the retro Nintendo GameCube I have. This book was really enjoyable. Loved the 80s pop culture references. The middle of the book was pretty meh for me, but it picked up by the end.

It happened. I can't believe it, but it did.
All books are safe at. Home and will be traveling to its next owners on time!!!
Thank you so much @MommyWantsToReadHerBook for the books and presents, but most of all for your patience!
And thank you @Avanders for your support. Later today I'll send you a mil with some news because I think I might be able to continue 😁
I‘m growing increasingly convinced that the OASIS could solve a lot of problems on Earth such as decreasing space and decreasing resources. However, I also think the OASIS could eventually erode the human brain starting at the visual pathway and emotional intelligence. I think I need to join a book club.
Thank you!!!! @ConfessionofaBookaholic I was just thinking about this book today and wishing I had picked it up when I saw it at Goodwill last week!! The bookmarks are super cool too!! Thanks so much!!! 📚❤️📚❤️
Been wanting to read this for a while. Haven‘t even watched the movie yet, because I was waiting for the book. I feel I‘m gonna like this one
I may have #FooledYou into thinking I was going to read the tagged book last month but I had a book become available at the library so I needed to read that instead so it‘s pushed to April. 🤷🏻♀️ #AprilTBR
I finally finished this yesterday. It still received 4/5✨ from me. Probably would've been a perfect score except my eyes kept glazing with all the coding, programming, and system jargon. And I get that it's all a huge part of the book,but for those of us that aren't tech minded it went way over my head. Here is another to add to the list of #betterthanthemovie and I really liked the movie!
I really enjoyed this book, I couldn't put it down. I liked the fact there were strong female characters especially when gamers are mostly seen to be men. This book really made me think about the way society is heading with its reliance on technology and its lack of interest on the impact we have had to our planet. Highly recommended this book.
Can't tell if I'm reading a novel or a very detailed video game manual. I love the actual storyline, but I'm finding all the over detailing of each video game a little tedious.
Did anyone else think that Will Wheaton‘s voice kind of sounds like Tim Allen? Just me?
If anyone hasn‘t read this though I 100% recommend. Definitely one of my favorites 💯
1. Love Ready Player One!!!
2. Yes only because my cat tends to puke in it sometimes. We have an old blanket that goes on top.
3. 37 F
4. Garlic mayo/aioli with French fries.
So after waiting this long to see the movie, I have to admit I‘m a little disappointed. I knew going into it that it wouldn‘t be ‘exactly‘ like the book, given just how detailed the book was and the limited amount of time the movie had to make it happen... BUT I do think the movie was made with a very simple-minded audience in mind; and sadly most of the genius plot twists that I loved about the book were lost in the process. Read the book, guys!
I listened to this as an audiobook read by Will Wheaton. Wow. Such a good audio book. If you aren't big on reading lots of descriptions in books I definitely recommend listening to it instead. It's the small details in this book that make it great. Wow. Can't believe I waited this long to read it.
What a trip down memory lane; so much 80's Pop Culture. Fictional Future is fascinating e.g.,libraries. Also very scary what our world could turn into. People starving, others hiding out in OASIS & greedy Corporations running amok. IOI is Payday Loans of the Future, on steroids. World building is amazing but big chunk of the book. Takes ages to get to actual plot. Pages and Pages of descriptions of Video Games Movies. More in comments.⬇️
Such a great read 👏🏼👏🏼
I wasn‘t really sure how I‘d go with this as it‘s not usually something I‘d pick up for leisure reading. I wasn‘t really convinced until about 1/4 of the way through, but was hooked after that and ended up absolutely loving it. Now that I‘ve finished the book, I can also (finally) watch the movie! 😊🎮

Keen to finally tick this off the TBR list. I‘ve been putting off watching the movie until I‘ve read the book and it‘s been far too long in coming. Finally purchased a copy after our book club at #harryhartogbookseller on Tuesday night, so now I‘m good to go!
Ready Player One 🎮📖
#Popsugar2019 - A book revolving around a puzzle or game
Very fun! Ready Player One takes place in the near future when people are basically living their lives through a virtual reality game.
Interesting characters, plot line, and setting for this book, and it is filled with 1980s references. I definitely recommend this one. I‘m not a “gamer,” but even I enjoyed the ride!
So I read the book last year and loved it, easely one of my all times favorite books. So when the movie came out I didn't see it, because I was sure I would be disappointed. So this week I saw it on Netflix and the first part I was like "this is not that bad, I actually think it's good" but the last part made me so disappointed ? whyyyy
