Waiting on Wednesday
Hosted by Breaking the Spine

As much as I loved the Legend trilogy, I was apprehensive about this series at first, but ended up really enjoying it (so far). Adelina is such an atypical female lead that I couldn’t help but like her. I also really like the setting, and have the feeling it’s only going to get richer going forward. The Young Elites took an interesting plot turned near the end, which is solely responsible for why I’m clamoring for this novel sooner than I would’ve otherwise. I’m really looking forward to this one.
