Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

Also by this author: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Cress, Fairest

From #1 New York Times-bestselling author Marissa Meyer, comes a high-stakes world of adventure, passion, danger, and betrayal.

Secret Identities.
Extraordinary Powers.
She wants vengeance. He wants justice.

The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies—humans with extraordinary abilities—who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone...except the villains they once overthrew.

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice—and in Nova. But Nova's allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.

Why I’m waiting: It’s Marissa Meyer. She wrote the Lunar Chronicles, one of my favorite series ever. And this one is about superheroes. Which I love. So yes please give me now??

Also by this author: Let's Get Lost, Never Always Sometimes

New from critically acclaimed author of LET'S GET LOST and NEVER ALWAYS SOMETIMES. In the wake of his brother's untimely death, a teen chef runs away from home to find his true path in life.

Carlos Portillo has always led a privileged and sheltered life. A dual citizen of Mexico and the US, he lives in Mexico City with his wealthy family where he attends an elite international school. His friends and peers-fellow rich kids-have plans to attend college somewhere in the US or Europe and someday take over their parents' businesses. Always a rule follower and a parent pleaser, Carlos is more than happy to tread the well-worn path in front of him. He has always loved food and cooking, but his parents see it as just a hobby.

When his older brother, Felix--who has dropped out of college to live a life of travel--is tragically killed, Carlos begins hearing his brother's voice, giving him advice and pushing him to rebel against his father's plan for him. Worrying about his mental health, but knowing the voice is right, Carlos runs away to the US and manages to secure a job with his favorite celebrity chef. As he works to improve his skills in the kitchen and pursue his dream, he begins to fall for his boss's daughter--a fact that could end his career before it begins. Finally living for himself, Carlos must decide what's most important to him and where his true path really lies.

Why I’m waiting: I loved Alsaid’s Let’s Get Lost and I enjoyed Never Always Sometimes  and of course I can’t wait to read his upcoming book.  I’ve met him a couple of times before and he’s really cool too 🙂

What are you waiting for this week?

About Adi Alsaid

Adi Alsaid was born and raised in Mexico City, then studied at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While in class, he mostly read fiction and continuously failed to fill out crossword puzzles, so it’s no surprise that after graduating, he did not go into business world but rather packed up his apartment into his car and escaped to the California coastline to become a writer. He’s now back in his hometown, where he writes, coaches high school and elementary basketball, and has perfected the art of making every dish he eats or cooks as spicy as possible. In addition to Mexico, he’s lived in Tel Aviv, Las Vegas, and Monterey, California. A tingly feeling in his feet tells him more places will eventually be added to the list.

      I’ve heard mixed things about Heartless to be honest. I’m not sure if I’ll read it because I’m not the biggest fan of Alice in Wonderland retellings. But superheroes are definitely my thing so MUST HAVE.

  1. How have I not even heard of Renegades?!?! I’m sorry….what??! Although I did love the Lunar Chronicles, I can’t lie…I’ve heard that “Heartless” has let quite a few people down, and that has definitely discouraged me from picking it up …But I’m still going to read it one day, and so is the case with this upcoming one haha. Hoping it’s as amazing as it has the chance to be!

      I DON’T KNOW SAMANTA GEESH. xD Haha, I heard about it ages ago. Because superheroes are my thing. Yeah I heard the same about Heartless. I haven’t read it yet because I’m not a big fan of Alice in Wonderland so retellings of it are usually a bit meh to me. But YES SUPERHEROES.

  2. Both of these sound like they are going to be really good! I hadn’t even heard of Renegades by Marissa Meyer yet! I’m slowly working my way through The Lunar Chronicles. I’ve read Cinder and Scarlet so far but haven’t gotten a chance to start Cress.
