Mila 2.0 Review (Both Books)

Hey Everyone!

I have a review for Mila 2.0 and it's sequel Renegade. I was given a copy for review from HarperCollins via the Fantastic Flying Book Club. So thank you to that! Read to the end to enter the giveaway to be able to win one of two sets of Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza.

Renegade (MILA 2.0 #2)
by Debra Driza
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Release Date: May 13th 2014


There is no one left for Mila to trust. Except for a boy she barely knows.

But Hunter has no idea who—and what—Mila really is. She can’t bear to reveal her secret, even though he’s unwittingly joined her search for Richard Grady, a man who may know more details of Mila’s complicated past.

Yet the road to the truth is more dangerous than ever. With General Holland and the Vita Obscura scouring the earth for her whereabouts, Mila must rely on her newfound android abilities to protect herself and Hunter from imminent harm. Still, embracing her identity as a machine leads her to question the state of her humanity—as well as Hunter’s real motives.

Perfect for fans of I Am Number Four and Divergent, this action-packed and heart-wrenching second installment of MILA 2.0 will leave readers breathlessly awaiting the series conclusion.

Origins (Novella):


I'm the author of the MILA 2.0 series and the owner of the messiest purse on the planet, aka: the black hole of doom. I think bow ties are cool and when I grow up, I want to be Veronica Mars.

I rarely check my account at Goodreads, so if you need to get in touch with me, try twitter or Debra at


I read both book this week and was sort of underwhelmed by the both of them. I was so excited to read the both of them since they sounded pretty fantastic, however, I didn't see it that way. I wasn't able to get into Mila's story in either book since I feel like I've read a thousand and one robot/cyborg type stories. I just wasn't ready for another one, I suppose. I loved the beginning of the series with Hunter and whatnot, but when she was thrown out of the truck, it's just--- I-- there was nothing for me.

The writing was good, yes, but the story and I did not connect in the ways that I wished we could have connected. I wanted to read it because I am a huge fan of Divergent by Veronica Roth, but I was just-- no substance. Are you making sense of this review? I just didn't care for it, it's weird because I always love books. Normally, I love every book I read and looks so good, but this one. I couldn't get into. Maybe it was the fact that it's a bit hectic in my personal life right now with school, but I still was not feeling it. I plan on rereading both books one day, but for now, this review sticks. I did not like it.

On top of it all, I felt like there wasn't much going on. It was like those situations where it goes "Oh they're here... now they're there and a random character joins them." You know those books, don't lie.

Don't be completely turned off by my review of the series, but these are my feelings. They're well written, but like I said, crazy hectic right now. Go ahead and enter to win the giveaway! May the odds be ever in your favor!
