Summary from Goodreads:

Winter Kim and her sister, Rose, have always been inseparable. Together, the two of them survived growing up in a Korean orphanage and being trafficked into the United States.

Now they work as digital stunt girls for Rose’s ex-boyfriend, Gideon, engaging in dangerous and enticing activities while recording their neural impulses for his Vicarious Sensory Experiences, or ViSEs. Whether it’s bungee jumping, shark diving, or grinding up against celebrities at the city’s hottest dance clubs, Gideon can make it happen for you, for a price.

When Rose disappears and a ViSE recording of her murder is delivered to Gideon, Winter won’t rest until she finds her sister’s killer. But when the clues she uncovers conflict with the neural recordings her sister made, Winter isn’t sure what to believe. To find out what happened to Rose, she’ll have to untangle what’s real from what only seems real, risking her life in the process.

Why I’m Waiting for Vicarious:

Umm… this sounds amazing. It’s been forever since I’ve heard of an interesting dystopian book and Vicarious sounds right up my alley! Digital stunt girls, murder, diversity, mystery, and possibly a romance how could I not want to read this?!?!


I also love books that deal with sister relationships, not many books seem to explore this  so I’m excited to see how the mystery of Rose’s disappearance plays out in this duology.


What are you Waiting for this Wednesday?

  1. Yes it does sound interesting! There’s another really good sounding dystopian is Consider by Kristy Acevedo. Apparently it’s won a lot of awards from Amazon.

    And it sounds absolutely amazing! The main character has anxiety! Which usually doesn’t happen in dystopian or in sci-fi.

    Wonderful post 🙂
