Book Review: The "Digit" Series

Hello! Today I'm finally getting around to writing a book review, if you read my spring goals then you'll know that it was on my to-do list. I never got around to reviewing a book in spring so then I just stuck it on my summer goals-list-thing :) Anyway, better late than never, right? To make up for my lack of reviews I've decided to review a two-book series, which means, technically, I'm reviewing two books :) 

The first book in the series by Annabel Monaghan is called "A Girl Named Digit" and follows the story of seventeen year old math geek, Farah Higgins. Her competent skills have earned her the nickname "Digit" and, due to her propensities she accidentally discovers a terrorist threat. I don't want to reveal too much about the book but basically, she ends up on the run with the FBI and then the book evolves into what I'd describe as an action, adventure, romance packed type thing. The second book (Double Digit) has an almost identical genre except this time Digit is attending MIT and she finally feels like she's with "her people."  The book shows how Digit adapts to the new living arrangements and way of life, it might just be me but I feel like in the second book she has a lot more interaction with other characters. Anyway she ends up hacking into a government database illegally and then then the majority of the book is the time between this and the date of her trial. She ends up getting captured by the same people who were after her in the last book and, since I'm trying really hard not to give anything away, I'm just going to leave it at this. I guess you'll just have to read the book to find out the rest :)

Starting with the title, I think it gives the impression that the books gonna be quite mathematical and, that really isn't the case. I guess it can have a good or bad impact, it just depends on your thoughts about math :) That being said, there are a few sections of the book that contain sequences and patterns, now, if you're not interested in that then you can just skim over it and the book still makes complete sense. However, if you think about it, it is quite easy to grasp since the explanation is fairly simple and this was probably one of my favourite aspects of the novel. The sequences were puzzling and, although there appearance in the book was sparse, I still enjoyed them. I read the first book ages ago, (and might, possibly have forgotten parts of it, hence the reviews focused on the sequel, ahah,) it was after a recommendation and I really enjoyed it. Both books are easy, fast reads and are fairly short. 

The idea behind the actions of the criminal provide some food for thought and are relevant in today's society. As I said before, I really don't want to put any spoilers in here so, all I'm going to say is that it's quite topical. Both books are quite far fetched so if that's not really your thing I'd think twice before reading it. Another point to note is that there's really only one main character- Digit. So I hope I've given you enough of a review for you to make a call as to whether or not the series is for you! To wrap things up- because I've quickly approaching my 600 word goal! -I enjoyed both books, they're not the most realistic things out there but they do provide a quick, easy and entertaining read. 

Let me know if you've read either of the Digit booksand, if you have, what was your favourite thing about them? Sorry this post is a little bit all over the place, I just kinda thought of points then wrote them (organised, I know!) leave a comment if you'd prefer a more structure post :) Thanks for reading!!
