Why I'm Waiting On It
Have you read my last year's review of The Young Elites? If that doesn't convince you of TYE's awesomeness, I don't know what will. And I'm pretty sure The Rose Society will be even more bad-ass. There'll be new characters with abso-freaking-lutely amazing powers, and of course, the Young Elites are still there! Gah! I'm so excited for this book!
(I'm not impressed with the cover though; I hope they still change it.)
