Book Review: Reboot by Amy Tintera

So I just finished reading an advance copy of REBOOT and . . . Wow. Just. Wow.

The blurb, from Goodreads:

Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

Guys, real talk: this book is too good. I am reduced to one and two word sentences after reading this book.

-Callum so sexy
-Want Callum
-So bad

It’s hard to understand how one book could be this amazing. I loved every single minute of my life while reading REBOOT. Do yourself a favor and add this one to your Goodreads list. Preorder it. Stand in line at your local bookstore until it comes out in May. Stalk the author on twitter or in real life until she agrees to give you an advance copy (Okay, so maybe not that last one).

Just do whatever it legally takes to get this book into your life. You’ll thank me later.
