    3. no one goes to a party expecting to die.What is fun about this series is each book (so far) begins with a character who dies and it doesn't tell us who. So throughout the entire book, you're trying to find out who will die at the end and who killed them (if it was in fact someone). There are several POVs and the book does a good job at making you care about each of them in one way or another. I either loved the character or truly loved to hate them. It's veryGossip Girl in that way. Think futuri [...]

    4. This exactly what I needed after reading an 800 page Adult Fantasy. This was an entertaining read filled with lies and betrayals.The futuristic technology was amazing. Forever puppies, tunnel in the sky, YES please! I also liked Watts sarcastic artificial intelligence. Despite all the technology, the writing wasnt difficult to understand. Now that Ive read this book, the cover and the title totally make sense. Both books start and end with a bang but the plots a little slower toward the middl [...]

    5. Not sure how I feel about this cover Like it is pretty, but for some reason, I just had higher expectations. Actually maybe my expectations were just too high lol ---Finally have a title! Now I just need a pretty cover =D

    6. Las segundas partes no suelen ser buenas, pero este libro entra en el pequeño rango donde es la excepción, supero a su antecesor, creo que Katharine McGee se tomo el tiempo para leer la mayoría de las reseñas de "El piso Mil" porque tomo en cuenta todos esos detalles que no nos gustaron en ese libro, pulió detalles, lo cual hizo que se hiciera una mezcla perfecta con su escritura detallista y linda. Su narración es tan delicada que nos adentra desde la primera pagina en la Torre y su mundo [...]

    7. (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“Even if nothing happens between you and Atlas, you aren’t really going to let that girl get away with trying to seduce him and steal from him, are you?”This was a YA futuristic story, which followed on from the first book in the series.Avery continued trying to make things work with Atlas in this book, even though he was her adopted sibling, and even though there seemed to be no shortage of girls aft [...]

    8. This is Gossip Girl meets Pretty Little Liars, and I am 100% here for it!Following on for the traumatic events that the first instalment, The Thousandth Floor, closed with, this begun in an altogether more sombre mood. Every character has their own secrets to hide, but that doesn't stop them attempting to out each other. Relationships and friendships seem forever severed and the charmed life of this elite cast is transformed into hell set in a thousand story sky scraper.By following the same lar [...]

    9. 2.75 (this is the first time I've had to use quarter stars lol)This was a very enticing and quick read, but I had several problems with this sequel, some of which I failed to recognize in the first novel. Full review to come.

    10. This series is honestly so addicting. I cannot manage to put it down. The characters are so trashy and bitchy but I LIVE for this level of drama. I love every single character so much. I was a bit uncertain on Leda but she was such a star in this book. I love the new addition of Calliope too. THERE ARE SO MANY TWISTS AND TURNS AND UNEXPECTED DEVELOPMENTS. I need book 3 right now. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if you enjoy Gossip Girl or rich teen drama then this book is made for [...]

    11. Just read the sneak peak and gosh it gave me goosebumps! So curious to find out what happens next omgp.s high key pining for Rylin and Cord 😭❤️

    12. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. The phrase kept echoing in her mind like cymbals.A fall for a fall, a voice inside her added.I entered this book wanting to kill Leda and finished this book wanting to kill Leda some more.I was afraid of starting the sequel because I forgot 98% of what happened in The Thousandth Floor. I vaguely remember bits and pieces, but not enough to confidently start The Dazzling Heights without the fear of being lost in the narrative. These fears were placated, howe [...]

    13. Reseña completa en: elcaosliterario.eKatharine McGee escribe genial y es muy detallista, algo imprescindible en una novela futurista de este tipo que requiere situarnos a la perfección en este gran edificio con tecnología tan moderna. Sus descripciones son una maravilla y utiliza un lenguaje muy bonito cuando describe los lugares.Los personajes, al igual que en “El piso mil”, son bastantes aunque es cierto que en esta segunda parte el peso importante recae en 6 o 7 y los demás personajes [...]

    14. Puntuación: 4.5Me ha encantado, yo esperaba que este me gustara menos que el primero pero he estado mucho más enganchada desde el principio. Todas las historias me interesaban y me tenían en vilo, y los personajes increíbles. Necesito el tercero, pero ahora toca esperar mucho.

    15. Seriously, this book was better than the first. It kept me on edge all through the story. Can’t wait for book 3!

    16. Más bien un 4'5. ¡Ha estado a la altura de su primera parte! Me ha gustado muchísimo cómo fueron evolucionando los personajes y también las historias de cada uno de ellos. Y ese aire Gossip Girl, ¡me encanta! Necesito el tercero libro y pronto.

    19. Oh, man, I completely forgot about the bordering-on-incest relationship between step siblingsh. What did this book do that the first book didn't already do? After finishing it, I'm struggling to see how the plot moved forward, besides the first and final chapters. Everything in between felt like things I already knew or plot points that weren't entirely relevant to the story's momentum.I still really enjoyed the reading experience of this one because Gossip Girl type characters are such a guilty [...]

    20. The Dazzling Heights is the second book in the YA The Thousandth Floor trilogy. You must read the first book before reading The Dazzling Heights as it is a continuing story.The story is set in New York City in 2118.The narrators of this book are Leda, Watt, Rylin, Avery and Calliope. The story is told in 3rd person POVs.I really liked The Thousandth Floor so I was very excited to read this new book. The Dazzling Heights has a very similar feel to the first book. So if you liked that book then I [...]

    23. *DISCLAIMER* LOTS AND LOTS OF SPOILERS!!!!!!!PHEW WHAT A RIDE THIS BOOK WAS!!! I just.*sigh*.is book was too good, 4.5 stars.Okay so lets kick it off with how much I HATED Leda in the beginning. Like every single time i had to read her chapters i would try my best to hold back from punching the wall. Yeah, i really did hate her. But seriously i ship Watt and her like so much. They are so cute together and just gotta be my next favorite ship of this book series.In the first book I absolutely admi [...]

    24. Woah. What was that? Seriously, what was that?The Dazzling Heights is the sequel of the series The Thousand Floor. I have to admit that I had a lot of expectations because the first book was really good. I am so happy that The Dazzling Heights was not a let down. It was much darker than the first one. Well, it went from Gossip Girl to Pretty Little Liars.Avery was pretty much the same throughout most of the book. I loved it when is become darker at the end. Dark Avery became a favorite.I honestl [...]

    25. Puedo decir que el primer libro me gustó más, pero no puedo negar que este también tiene lo suyo.Una de las grandes virtudes que le veo a esta autora es que sabe atraparte desde la primera oración del libro, me parece una estupenda idea que los libros comiencen con la muerte de un personaje misterioso que tendrás que descubrir más adelante. Leda me gusto un poco más en este libro, al igual que Watt. Avery fue uno de mis personajes favoritos en el libro pasado pero debo admitir que en este [...]

    26. Warning: spoilers for book one. Spoilers for this book are marked, so only click on those if you want the ending to be ruined.Okay, I found this book incredibly frustrating, in the worst way. I had some issues with the first book: I found most of the characters shallow, there was too much focus on unconvincing romance, and the ending is blatant example of the Bury Your Gays trope in which one of the only queer characters is killed off for no real reason except shock value, when it could have bee [...]

    27. This was just as addicting as the first novel and the drama reached even new heights. It was still full of petty, back-stabbing, and deceitful teenagers that are too caught up in their own problems to care about anyone else's. In this one there was a con artist who goes by the name Calliope, and she really added a new level of intrigue to everything.The futuristic setting is still incredible to read about and honestly, it could totally be like that in 2118. Katharine's writing is wonderful and s [...]

    29. De verdad que no se que me pasa con estos libros, son un continúo sí pero no, pero sí. Me paso la mitad del tiempo pensando que son muy absurdos, una versión futurista de Gossip Girl, pero a la vez estoy enganchadísima y no puedo dejar de leerlo.En especial, Vértigo me ha gustado mucho más que El piso mil. Y creo que la historia ha ganado notablemente centrándose más en Leda que en Avery. En el primer libro la protagonista, casi indiscutible, de la historia era Avery, el giro de este, e [...]

    30. Dit boek las ik samen met Odette en Suus!Wij waren alle 3 al heel enthousiast over deel 1, waardoor het nog leuker was om samen dit deel te lezen. Lekker samen raden en voorspellingen maken!Ik vond deel 2 eigenlijk nog leuker als deel 1, mogelijk heeft de Buddyread hier aan bijgedragen! Dit was spannender en minder voorspelbaar. Je kent de karakter beter en kunt je meer in ze inleven. Calliope is echt een toffe toevoeging aan het verhaal.En dan de cliffhanger, die zorgt er voor dat ik heeel veel [...]
