My Thoughts: Where do I even start. As you can tell from my reviews of The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves I am a huge fan of this series. Maggie Stiefvater’s storytelling is simply incredible.

The Young Elites

The Young Elites

My Thoughts: I absolutely adored Marie Lu’s Legend books but The Young Elites has cemented her as an “auto-buy” author for me. The intensity of The Young Elites sucked me in and didn’t let go.
