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.

Title Reveal for ACOTAR 3!!!

Oh my god guys, the title for ACOTAR 3 came out and it is PERFECT. I can't even right now.

If you haven't heard of the A Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas, you probably have been living Under the Mountain. In which I pity you, and hope your own Feyre will come save you and lead you out. Now, I know this isn't a cover reveal or anything, but this is the title, and the title is a big deal. Because it means we don't have to call it ACOTAR 3. Because it means this book is one step closer to being in my hands. And because it means I am one step closer to being reunited with Feyre.

Not to be mean, but let's super quickly go over the titles and covers of the previous two books before revealing the title of the third:

The book that started it all and introduced the world to Feyre: A Court of Thorns and Roses 

The second book that literally destroyed everything I know about everything and most likely be my top book of 2016: A Court of Mist and Fury

And now, we have the TITLE of the next book! Get ready for it...

Release: October 21st 2016

In a few short months, Emi's mortal life will end when she becomes the human host of an immortal goddess. Carefully hidden from those who would destroy her, she has prepared her mind, body, and soul to unite with the goddess—and not once has she doubted her chosen fate.

Shiro is a spirit of the earth and an enemy of the goddess Emi will soon host. Mystery shrouds his every move and his ruby eyes shine with cunning she can’t match and dares not trust. But she saved his life, and until his debt is paid, he is hers to command—whether she wants him or not.

On the day they meet, everything Emi believes comes undone, swept away like snow upon the winter wind. For the first time, she wants to change her fate—but how can she erase a destiny already wrought in stone? Against the power of the gods, Shiro is her only hope … and hope is all she has left.

RED WINTER includes 10 full-page illustrations by artist Brittany Jackson.

November TBR!

Hi everyone! How are you?

I'm terribly sorry for not being overly present in the blogging world. Unfortunately, it's about to get worse, just because November is always a super crazy busy month for me, so we'll see how many books I'll be able to get through this month... But I'll be participating in 2 blog tours this month, so hopefully that will keep things exciting!

Without further ado, here's my TBR for this month! :)
