Waiting on Wednesday: The Rose Society by Marie Lu

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

**Spoiler Alert - Do not read Synopsis if you have not read the first book!

The Rose Society  by Marie Lu
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers
Series: The Young Elites, #2
Publication date: 10/13/2015
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 that murdered her love, the Crown Prince Enzo Valenciano.

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?

I fell in love with The Young Elites. As with anything Marie Lu writes, I've come to the  conclusion that I'll be taken on a roller coaster ride. I can't imagine what's going to go down in this book but if the last scene was anything to go by, then  we're going to be in for some major thrills.

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?


  1. The book is a very compelling read. The dilemmas and decisions that these characters have to make a truly difficult, and makes you wonder what you'd do if you were in their shoes.

  2. That’s great to hear, seems to me that it’s a great book, thanks.

  3. The Rose Society is emotionally gripping and a thought provoking story. There is so much going on and sometimes I have no clue how to feel when reading the novel. It's mind blowing! It's action packed with so much betrayal and deceit. The darkness amplifies in The Rose Society and I am not complaining because I love it so much more than the predecessor. I am curious how dark the third installment will be.
