Just shared my super early Spring/April Book Haul!! *hence the dead flowers😂📚💕* This month I got to work with Freeform books an imprint of @disneybooks to share with you #TheTakeDown by @corriegram SO EXCITED TO READ THIS ONE!! #bibliophile #bookstagram #booknerd #booktuber #booktube #newbook #coffee #tbr #thetakedownbook
Book: 🎆The Takedown🎆 Author: Corrie Wang Release Date: 4/11/17 (SOON!) Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️(3/5) Genre: Future/Realistic Fiction Movie Screen Rating: R if the video in question is shown. Otherwise PG-13 for profanity. Where: I got it at a BFYA conference, pre-release. Overview: Kyla Chang, the main character, is popular. Gorgeous French-Chinese, on track to be valedictorian, volunteer, perfect friends, perfect guy following her around. But somebody has it out for her- so this mysterious hater releases a video of Kyla "doing it" with her young English teacher. It instantly goes insanely viral in this future-set world completely ingrained with technology, but here's the thing- it's not Kyla in the video. In a rush against time (her life is literally falling apart- a week before college apps, losing friends, trust, even her "worshipped" high school track and her promising future in government), she rushes to take down an impenetrable video in the midst of drama. Review: If you like teen drama books, teen romance, or even future set tech books, this book is for you. The new tech seems weird at first, but you will get used to it. Also, be prepared to be frustrated with Kyla with the whole Mac thing. She's stubborn. Another thing that bothered me a bit was the whole searching thing- it seemed a little drawn out and there was SOOO much drama, but I guess that's just the genre. I didn't give this a very high score because, honestly, this just isn't my type of book. Overall, this book is good and keeps you reading- a good page turner. Lots of plot twists- I liked that.

Even though this is a v serious cover, I couldn't help my excitement over getting this cool ass prop of my Instagram😍😍 Big thanks to @disneybooks for sending me The Takedown by Corrie Wang! • "A week before college applications are due, a video of Kyla "doing it" with her crush-worthy English teacher is uploaded to her school's website. It instantly goes viral, but here's the thing: it's not Kyla in the video. With time running out, Kyla delves into a world of hackers, haters and creepy stalkers in an attempt to do the impossible—take something off the internet—all while dealing with the fallout from her own karmic footprint. Set in near-future Brooklyn, where privacy is a bygone luxury and every perfect profile masks damning secrets, The Takedown is a stylish, propulsive, and provocative whodunit, asking who would you rely on if your tech turned against you?" • Doesn't this sound amazing?! #TheTakedownBook
