Goodreads Synopsis:  In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network.

When Zoe starts to malfunction (or “glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers.


As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Both boys introduce Zoe to feelings that are entirely new. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse.

In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.




My Review:
Tagline: "A world free of pain and emotions, Glitch was dazzle you with it's love triangle and action"

Glitch was a stunning 2012 debut novel! I immediately dived into it after receiving it for review and I really liked it a lot. There was action, suspense, and a love triangle. I was surprised how it turned out that I enjoyed a sci-fi novel with some dystopian mix, I'm liking the sci-fi genre a lot! :) I was expecting the classic dystopian novel but there was just a little more that still keeps you interested
 
“You've felt it, haven't you? Those feelings that seem to get so big in your chest, like something is so beautiful it aches?”  
 
Zoe, a girl who lives in a Community free of pain and war starts to glitch. Glitching means abnormalities and Zoe starts to freak out since its not normal to glitch and it also means being deactivated and burned. Zoe was relatable and I liked her a lot! She was kick-ass and takes control of her situation. Not to mention she also meets Adrien, a mysterious guy from the Uppers who she should talk to but does of course *hits head* 
 
The world was kinda confusing at times and needed to be fleshed out more. The V-Chip, a chip installed in the back of your head shuts your emotions and feeling from coming out, could have been explained better. But the idea of the book was unique and fresh! I also think the romance with Zoe and Adrien was a bit of INSTA? O_O I also didn't like Max and at all. He was pushy and aggressive and didn't trust Zoe at all!
 
Zoe's powers were really cool! She could move objects with her mind, Adrien can see the future, and Max could change into anyone and be them, which were amazing and cool! I really want to see more action scenes with these powers! Overall, I really liked Glitch, it was a surprising and even though I thought it  would be the normal dystopian novel, it wasn't! :D Definitely pick it up if your a fan of Beth Revis's Across The Universe or any sci-fi junkee!

  1. Thanks for the review! I'm still seething over the fact that eARC refused to let me download it like it was its job. It's like Glitch doesn't want me to read it -.- But anyways, I'm sorry the world development wasn't that good and the V-Chip idea wasn't explained to well. But I'm glad you enjoyed it overall!
