From Goodreads:
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.

Dystopian, superpowers and love. A book full of actions, romance and twists. A book with awesome characters. A book with a great story. A book with a beautiful world-building. If you're searching for a great book, then you should read this one. 

A community where secrets were forbidden. A community where people weren't capable of secrets. A community where people can't feel. It is really interesting, isn't it? 

Zoe was the perfect protagonist for this book. She drives the book so well. She was really strong and she is willing to do anything for the people in community. Zoe was the character that you will be instantly connected. But there are some moments that I feel annoyed with her. The moment where she was blaming herself for Daavd. But it doesn't affect my love for this novel, haha. At first, Zoe can't control her power, but as the story goes on, she became stronger and she can now control her power. 

And hello there Adrien! Adrien was the perfect love interest for Zoe. Nah, I don't like Max for her. Adrien was strong and willing to do to help Zoe and the other 'glitchers' and also the whole community. Adrien was the one who open the eyes of Zoe to see the truth about her 'perfect' community. And there was Max, the boy who was obsessed with Zoe. He wants Zoe to love him as he loves her. He was hungry for love and power. All I can say is that I HATE him! Heather Anastasiu made him perfectly annoying. XD

This book was full of actions from first page up to the last page and it was fast paced. All the twists and turns of this book made me a non-stop reader. The world was really awesome. All the creepy technologies added a beautiful touch in this novel. 

Overall, the book was really enjoyable. And the book was the right kind for me. Fantasy and dystopia? Well, I'm in with that one. It was really great, but the rest of the stories were the usual dystopian. Abusive government and the protagonist will join the group of people who were against with the government. But still it was really great and it was one of my best reads so far. :D

Cover: I really loved the cover. The colors are beautiful and the typography is really awesome. 5/5 for cover ;D
My actual rating is 4.5 but I rounded it off, haha. :D

  17. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
