Happy Halloween!! I can’t believe that this year is almost over! What is everyone dressing up as tonight? My husband and I are going to be passing out candy as Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, mainly because it’ll be very easy for us to come up with a costume out of our closets. And because my husband isn’t a very big fan of costumes to begin with, so whatever he wears I’ll just say he is Luke Cage! 😉
Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Page Turner, and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!
This week I have chosen:
Title: The Young Elites
Author: Marie Lu
Published: October 7th 2014 by G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
I am tired of being used, hurt, and cast aside.
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood fever. A decade ago, the deadly illness swept through her nation. Most of the infected perished, while many of the children who survived were left with strange markings. Adelina’s black hair turned silver, her lashes went pale, and now she has only a jagged scar where her left eye once was. Her cruel father believes she is a malfetto, an abomination, ruining their family’s good name and standing in the way of their fortune. But some of the fever’s survivors are rumored to possess more than just scars—they are believed to have mysterious and powerful gifts, and though their identities remain secret, they have come to be called the Young Elites.
Teren Santoro works for the king. As Leader of the Inquisition Axis, it is his job to seek out the Young Elites, to destroy them before they destroy the nation. He believes the Young Elites to be dangerous and vengeful, but it’s Teren who may possess the darkest secret of all.
Enzo Valenciano is a member of the Dagger Society. This secret sect of Young Elites seeks out others like them before the Inquisition Axis can. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they’ve never seen.
Adelina wants to believe Enzo is on her side, and that Teren is the true enemy. But the lives of these three will collide in unexpected ways, as each fights a very different and personal battle. But of one thing they are all certain: Adelina has abilities that shouldn’t belong in this world. A vengeful blackness in her heart. And a desire to destroy all who dare to cross her.
It is my turn to use. My turn to hurt.
The third book just came out, and I have heard so much hype on this series. I am on the waiting list for this book from my library. I can’t wait to see what the hype is about and dive into a new series!
What is on your TBR shelf this week?
