Wishlist Wednesday #15

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper where we will post about a book that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added, that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our bookshelves.

Hmmmn- part dystopian, matrix-like computer-game romance? This sounds very different and pretty cool! This has been on my wishlist since I read some pretty good reviews of it a few weeks back. 

The original planned cover was changed before publication. Personally I way prefer the original cover- it really stands out, it's very eye-catching and so unique. The new cover is a bit boring. What do you think?

Doomed by Tracy Deebs

Beat the game. Save the world.

Pandora’s just your average teen, glued to her cell phone and laptop, surfing Facebook and e-mailing with her friends, until the day her long-lost father sends her a link to a mysterious site featuring twelve photos of her as a child. Unable to contain her curiosity, Pandora enters the site, where she is prompted to play her favorite virtual-reality game, Zero Day. This unleashes a global computer virus that plunges the whole world into panic: suddenly, there is no Internet. No cell phones. No utilities, traffic lights, hospitals, law enforcement. Pandora teams up with handsome stepbrothers Eli and Theo to enter the virtual world of Zero Day. Simultaneously, she continues to follow the photographs from her childhood in an attempt to beat the game and track down her father, her one key to saving the world as we know it. Part The Matrix, part retelling of the Pandora myth, Doomed has something for gaming fans, dystopian fans, and romance fans alike.

Has anybody else read it? What did you think?


  1. I think I will have to add this one to my TBR pile!

  2. I've added this to my wishlist. It looks really good. I actually like the new cover better.

    Here's my WW!

  3. This sounds intriguing. The second cover is more appealing to mainstream readers, I would guess. Thanks for including review links.

  4. I almost participated in the tour of this one! However, I had to back out because I didn't have my reader at that time. I hope you get it :)

    My WW:

  5. Nice picks! Hope you read them soon :)

  6. Neither cover really does anything for me, but I hope you enjoy what's inside. :)

    My WW:

  7. That sounds like a great read! I'm with you on preferring the old cover. It's so unique whilst the newer one is just kind of same-y. I hope you get to read it soon :)
