I loved ready player one. because for once the book was better than the movie. expecaly with the keys/gates.
My first #Litsylove #penpals4lyfe & I‘m so enchanted! Thank you @Bookwormjillk 😍what a beautiful note! I‘m inspired to sit down & design my bookish valentines ♥️ p.s. I know I‘m late to RP1 but I wanted to wait for the noise to die down. It was fun but not terribly challenging, just like a classic video game 🎮
You were born at a pretty crappy time in history. And it looks like things are only gonna get worse from here on out.
I picked this book up originally because it was being made into a movie a while ago, and I sometimes don‘t agree with the book being better than a movie, but in this case I think it was way better. Part 2
This book is about Wade Watts. He lives in 2044, in the stacks, a town made out of RVs stacked on each other because of an energy crisis people could no longer live in houses. When James Halliday died, the creator of the oasis, he left behind all of his fortune to the winner of the contest. To win you have to find 3 keys and 3 doors. Will Wade win the contest or will a corporate team beat him to it? Part 1

Did anyone else want to brush up on their video gaming skills after reading this book?? I haven‘t had this much fun reading a book in a long time. Loved it!!
James Halliday is dead. And his fortune is yours for the taking. If you can find the egg he‘s hidden inside the OASIS. Now I‘m not a serious gamer...I have been known to indulge. But I have to say, this book was great! It‘s a solid LitRPG romp through an VR world created for people to escape what I would call the near post apocalyptic future that they live in. It also made me realize by the end that I‘m glad I‘ve got more things to do than game.
This is the book my 15 year old self needed! So many references to all my favorite video games, movies, and music. Such a fun read!
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline is a look at our possible future, a world where life is primarily online, from school to work. A world that it seems isn‘t in the far-distance future. Wade is relatable.When we first meet Wade, The Hunt has already been in progress, but with little success. Moving through the pop culture challenges required to find the keys invokes not only nostalgia, but makes rooting for Wade easy.
Okay... I‘m calling it. Didn‘t make it to 24 but completed three in progress books and started three more. Hot and heavy towards my 100 book goal for 2019. I am at 80 so far. So close but still a long way to go. Any suggestions on good under 300 page reads? #MRBOOK1INAMILLION #24B4MONDAY #LITSYPARTYOFONE #MISSEDTHEMARK
“Then the Hunt for Halliday‘s Easter egg began. That was what saved me, I think. Suddenly I‘d found something worth doing. A dream worth chasing. For the last five years, the Hunt had given me a goal and purpose. A #quest to fulfill. A reason to get up in the morning. Something to look forward to.”
This book is so addictive, i had to force myself to stop reading it. Despite it having some flaws I loved reading every minute of it. It was so engrossing, fast paced, and kept me on edge the whole time. The many 80's references were great, of which i was only able to get a few but i still enjoyed them. I did watch the movie first but it is so vastly different from the book, i do prefer the book but the movie wasn't too bad either.
This book was like a warm embrace from a long lost aunt! As a longtime MMORPG player, the setting of a persistent virtual reality world was of particular interest, and the author truly did it justice. Story was slightly generic, but did the job. Fans of 80s culture would also appreciate the references woven throughout the story - I‘m not particularly interested in it but got caught up in the fun all the same!
This was a fun read. The plot was engaging and fast paced and I rooted for Wade and his friends to complete their virtual quest and the culminating battle. I‘m not a gamer and I appreciated the 80‘s references to games and music and computers. Younger readers will identify with it even more. I look forward to seeing the movie.
Finished listening to this audiobook. My husband read the physical copy and was psyched about it. It was a very fun listen to. #readyplayerone #audiobook
Visit my review:
I‘m not a gamer and I‘m not the target audience for this book but I loved it! The 80s pop culture was awesome (yes, there was a LOT of it , but as an 80s kid, I didn‘t mind) and it held my attention throughout. Now I want to see the movie! #booked2019 #booktomovie
I‘m less than an hour in and this book is already a million times better than the first hour I listened to of Warcross. 🙄
It took me a while to get through this book. I read it when my teenager suggested I do so, but I knew about 25% of the way through that the only reason I was still reading was because I'm trying to have something to talk with him about. He doesn't care for reading much, so when he suggested this to me I knew I had to try. There was SO MUCH 80s pop culture references that it got tedious, especially since I didn't know most of them.
I watched the movie first and was expecting something completely different from the book. I was pleasantly surprised that the book was different than the movie.
I enjoyed the fact that the book went into detail and really explained what happened. Knowing the background and understanding the characters positions really put into perspective how the book played out. The growth and pace of the book was enjoyable and kept me captivated.
A perfect Monday morning. I think it‘s going to be a great week. #thereadingrush

I loved this book and read it at a racing clip. I‘m giving it a So-So though because it suffers from bigtime tokenism and sketchy race issues.
It doesn‘t make it a shitty book, but the author might have avoided those elements if he‘d had honest draft feedback from Black, Japanese, LGBTQ, and disabled beta readers. YMMV.
Still one of the best books I‘ve ever read. Remember picking this up about 2 years ago on a whim, and ended up finishing it three times over the course of a long weekend. Plot was fantastic, nostalgic, and truly grasped my attention from the opening chapter. This is a book I recommend to anyone who is into 80s pop culture, or just video games in general. This is the type of book that can then non-reassess, into readers. Way better than the movie.
