I read Rae Carson last year and was blown away by WALK ON EARTH A STRANGER. I purchased THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS shortly afterwards because I planned on reading everything by this author. I will say that this story had a lot of potential and the second half was pretty addictive. […]
The cover of this book is incredible. Originally that is what drew to me to want to read this. When I saw it was by Mindy McGinnis I knew I had to have it. Overflowing TBR be damned! A MADNESS SO DISCREET encompasses dark family secrets, an insane asylum, a killer on the […]
Why did these book sit on my TBR for so long? I actually won a copy of END OF DAYS about 2 years ago which I then realized was book #3 in a series so I put it off. I did purchase ANGELFALL and WORLD AFTER meaning to read them all at some […]
This book was right up my alley. It was recommended to me by a family while I worked in Hospice, since they had just read it and were changed by it. How to die is just as important as how we live the moments/days/years preceding our death. This book explores the real issues […]

From New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu comes the second book in the exhilarating Young Elites series
Once upon a time, a girl had a father, a prince, a society of friends. Then they betrayed her, and she destroyed them all.
Adelina Amouteru's heart has suffered at the hands of both family and friends, turning her down the bitter path of revenge. Now known and feared as the White Wolf, she and her sister flee Kenettra to find other Young Elites in the hopes of building her own army of allies. Her goal: to strike down the Inquisition Axis, the white-cloaked soldiers who nearly killed her.
But Adelina is no heroine. Her powers, fed only by fear and hate, have started to grow beyond her control. She does not trust her newfound Elite friends. Teren Santoro, leader of the Inquisition, wants her dead. And her former friends, Raffaele and the Dagger Society, want to stop her thirst for vengeance. Adelina struggles to cling to the good within her. But how can someone be good, when her very existence depends on darkness?
Bestselling author and New York Times proclaimed "hit factory" Marie Lu delivers another heart-pounding adventure in this exhilarating sequel to The Young Elites.

This was so much darker then the first book, THE YOUNG ELITES. THE ROSE SOCIETY tells more of the story of Adelina, who is joined now by her sister Violetta. Adeline has broken away from The Young Elites and decides to get revenge on Teren, who killed Enzo. She decides to form her […]
I am not a big fan of historical fiction. I am also not a big fan of westerns, this books mostly takes place in the wild west. Admittedly, this story starts in Georgia, and then joins in the great Gold Rush, so it encompasses both. I still wanted to read it primarily because […]
