Amid breathtaking advancement and high-tech luxury, five teenagers struggle to find their place at the top of the world. But when you’re this high up, there’s nowhere to go but down….
This book was so fantastic. Whatever random words I am typing barely begin to describe how much I loved this book. The Thousandth Floor is definitely one of my favourites of 2016. It was so unique and just *sighs*.
I adored the set up of the tower and all of the different technology that must have been thoroughly planned out. Even though this book is set 101 years in the future, it seemed so realistic.The characters were really well thought out and had personalities that I hadn’t seen in too many characters from other books.
The synopsis had me hooked from when I first read it. I couldn’t not go out and buy it. The cover is gorgeous too and, let’s be honest, we all judge books by their covers sometimes.
Just look at it! Perfection…
Yeah, there was a bit of drama here and there but it was made up for by the amazing world building and characters so that didn’t affect the rating very much at all.
Overall, I loved this book so much and can’t wait for the next book in the series. (The title was recently released on EpicReads!!).
