Waiting on Wednesday (90)

(First off, this is my 500th blog post! How cool is that? I’ll have to do a giveaway soon.)
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Young Elites by Marie Lu (10/7/14):

Description on Goodreads:
"Some hate us, think us criminals to hang at the gallows. Some fear us, think us demons to burn at the stake. Some worship us, think us divine children of the gods.

But all know us."
Adelina Amouteru is a survivor of the blood plague: marked by a jagged scar, snow-white hair and lashes. Cast out by her family, Adelina has finally found a place to belong within the secret society of Young Elites. To some, the Elites are heroes, here to save innocents in desperate situations. But to the Inquisition Axis, the white-robed soldiers of Kenettra, they are monsters with demonic powers who must be brought to justice. As Adelina learns more about this perilous world where politics and magic clash, she soon realizes that her own powers may be in danger of bringing on an era of panic such as the world has never seen.
The new series, set in what Putnam described as a “Renaissance-like world,” is called The Young Elites. It follows three rival societies with supernatural powers battling for supremacy.
Why I’m Waiting:
I will most likely be anticipating anything this author has to say. I was a huge fan of the Legend series. And as soon as I heard she was doing something new, I did a little happy dance. Also, how epic does this story sound? Seriously, what an amazing idea for a YA novel. I find the cover to be a little boring, but then again, her other covers were never all that exciting either.
What are you waiting on this week?

  1. I can't wait for a new series from Marie Lu! That cover feels like a teaser/placeholder. I will be interested to see if that is actually the final cover. I fear it might be. Great pick! ~Megan
