This book has been absolutely EVERYWHERE for the past month or so, and I’ve been dying to get my hands on it. I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of The Thousandth Floor from Harper Collins a couple of weeks ago and it didn’t disappoint!
The story follows a group of friends who reside in a (you guessed it) thousand-floor tower in Manhattan, where the wealth flows upward and so does the drama. Our five main characters are struggling to maneuver their every day lives when a tragic chain of events further complicates life in the tower. Each character offers their own perspective, and as their stories begin to tangle and collide we discover that nothing is as it seems and the truth is more threatening than anyone expected.
If you’re a fan of Gossip Girl, science fiction, and crimes dramas, this one is for you. McGee did not skimp on the drama; while it was a bit much a times, over all this was a fun read. I got through it fairly quickly and I was definitely captivated by the intensity of the characters’ stories. McGee’s writing is vibrant, and the futuristic world she has created is lively, fast-paced, and thrilling.
I’m hearing that there will be a second installment in this series, and I’m anxious to get my hands on book two. A big thank you to Harper Collins and Katharine McGee for the chance to review this exciting fall release!
