But when Portia holds an Egyptian scarab beetle during history class, she takes center stage in a way she never expected: she faints. Upon waking, she is stronger, faster, and braver than before. And when she accidentally touches the scarab again?
She wakes up in ancient Egyptâ€”her sister and an unwitting freshman in tow.”
I wanted to like this one more than I did.Â It can be hard for me to get invested in YA fantasy books.Â I finished it and I’m still not super clear on exact why everything was happening.
“Trinity Jordan leads a quiet, normal life: working from home for the Hive, a multifunctional government research center, and recovering from the incident that sent her into a tailspin. But the life sheâ€™s trying to rebuild is plagued by mishaps when Li Wei, her neighborâ€™s super sexy and super strange nephew, moves in and turns things upside down. Li Weiâ€™s behavior is downright oddâ€”and the attraction building between them is even more so. When an emergency pulls his aunt away from the apartment complex, Trinity decides to keep an eye on himâ€¦and slowly discovers that nothing is what it seems. For one thing, Li Wei isnâ€™t just the hot guy next doorâ€”heâ€™s the hot A.I. next door. In fact, heâ€™s so advanced that he blurs the line between man and machine. Itâ€™s up to Trinity to help him achieve his objective of learning to be human, but danger is mounting as they figure out whether heâ€™s capable of the most illogical human behavior of allâ€¦falling in love.”
This was a good one.Â I don’t usually listen to romance on audio.Â I like to skip the sex parts and that’s harder to do but this was only available on Audible.Â I’d recommend this one anyway though.Â Great worldbuilding in a near future world.Â
I have so many books out from the library right now.Â I went a bit overboard requesting things for Blackathon.Â I never learn how to pace myself.
