Bluescreen (Mirador #1) by Dan Wells

Description from Goodreads:

Los Angeles in 2050 is a city of open doors, as long as you have the right connections. That connection is a djinni—a smart device implanted right in a person’s head. In a world where virtually everyone is online twenty-four hours a day, this connection is like oxygen—and a world like that presents plenty of opportunities for someone who knows how to manipulate it.

Marisa Carneseca is one of those people. She might spend her days in Mirador, the small, vibrant LA neighborhood where her family owns a restaurant, but she lives on the net—going to school, playing games, hanging out, or doing things of more questionable legality with her friends Sahara and Anja. And it’s Anja who first gets her hands on Bluescreen—a virtual drug that plugs right into a person’s djinni and delivers a massive, non-chemical, completely safe high. But in this city, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is, and Mari and her friends soon find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy that is much bigger than they ever suspected.

Dan Wells, author of the New York Times bestselling Partials Sequence, returns with a stunning new vision of the near future—a breathless cyber-thriller where privacy is the world’s most rare resource and nothing, not even the thoughts in our heads, is safe.

Why I'm excited:

A cyber-thriller? Excellent!

I've been looking for something different to read, and this sounds perfect! Futuristic, dark setting, features diverse characters and has a thrilling plot with a conspiracy. I'm in. It kind of reminds me a little of the movie Strange Days, which I loved.

I can't wait to read this!

What book are you looking forward to?

  1. I'm not much into futuristic or dystopian books, but I hope you get this one!

  2. That's where I know this name from! I should probably read Partials, it's been on my nook for years!

    And this sounds really exciting, thanks for bringing it to my attention Michelle!

  3. I saw this one last week and thought it looked interesting. I read Partials while ago, and while I think I liked it, I never continued on. Maybe I would do better starting this new series.

  4. Oooh! Hadn't seen this one before! Will have to go add it to my Goodreads TBR. Great pick! Thanks for stopping by my WOW earlier.
