Book 6/65 - 2016 Goodreads Reading Challenge

This novel was the sequel to The Young Elites by Marie Lu and I loved this book just as much as I loved The Young Elites. After completing The Young Elites I just needed to get my hands on this book. Unfortunately, it hadn't been released then and I had to wait.... And I just waited a bit more after the release, cause, why not? :P  

The Rose Society picks up where The Young Elites left off. I was devastated after reading The Young Elites because of Enzo's death and I was highly anticipating what would happen in this novel. I had a number of ideas as what would happen and I was actually delighted to see that the idea that I ad first came to fruition in this novel. I was just blown away. 

I actually really dislike reviewing sequels because I have so much thoughts and have no idea what to say because of spoilers. So yes, this is going to be another time when I say I have no idea what to say only that I loved this freaking book so much! Marie Lu is a queen at writing novels.

I can't wait to get my hands on The Midnight Star! Even just to see the cover and have a release date would suffice me right now but I literally can not wait! I need to know what will happen and I just need to know.....
