Waiting on Wednesday: The Midnight Star by Marie Lu

A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: The Midnight Star
Series: The Young Elites #3
Author: Marie Lu
Published: October 11, 2016 by Putnum Books for Young Readers (Penguin Group)

Synopsis: The thrilling finale to the New York Times bestselling Young Elites series from “hit factory” Marie Lu.

There was once a time when darkness shrouded the world, and the darkness had a queen.

Adelina Amouteru is done suffering. She’s turned her back on those who have betrayed her and achieved the ultimate revenge: victory. Her reign as the White Wolf has been a triumphant one, but with each conquest her cruelty only grows. The darkness within her has begun to spiral out of control, threatening to destroy all that she’s achieved.

Adelina’s forced to revisit old wounds when a new danger appears, putting not only Adelina at risk, but every Elite and the very world they live in. In order to save herself and preserve her empire, Adelina and her Roses must join the Daggers on a perilous quest—though this uneasy alliance may prove to be the real danger.

Bestselling author Marie Lu concludes Adelina's story with this haunting and hypnotizing final installment to the Young Elites series

Why I'm Waiting 

Oh man, I am not ready to read this book. I have been so emotionally invested in this series and they always end up wrecking me. You wouldn't think that a book which is essentially a villain origin story would make me sob uncontrollably but this one definitely does. And the way the last book ended I can only imagine the emotional turmoil this book is going to put me through.

But at the same time I can't wait to find out what will happen in this book. I love this series so much. The world, the characters, the plot development. It's such a fascinating and dark YA fantasy and I'm interested to see where things go and how it will all end.

This book is one of my highly anticipated release for the fall and I have had a copy pre-ordered for awhile now. I cannot wait until it shows up on my doorstep so that I can read it.

What about you? What are you waiting for this Wednesday? Are you waiting on The Midnight Star along with me? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!
