Waiting on Wednesday: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

By: Alexandra Bracken
Published by: Hyperion Teens
To Be Released on: December 18th, 2012
Pre-Order from: Amazon | Barnes & Noble

At the age of 10, something happen to children; something the government doesn't like. Either, they contract a terrible disease, or they gain powers beyond their control. They're being shipped to camps that will help cure them of their magical abilities. The camps are brutal.

The children are separated by colors in terms of their abilities. Ruby's lived for years as a green. However, a new test appears, ready to prove the correct color identity. Ruby's told in the nick of time. Someone helps her escape; someone who wants to use Ruby as a weapon.

Ruby doesn't understand much about the outside world, being locked away for six years. She comes across a group of teens, two boys and a girl. Not knowing what else to do, she stays with them. There are people looking for her. Can she stay under the radar? Can she make a new life for herself?

I first fell in love with Alexandra's writing with her debut, Brightly Woven (you can read Sophie's 5 star review here), and I can hardly wait to pick up her sophomore book, Darkest Minds. I'm intrigued by this book's synopsis. I can't wait to meet Ruby and discover her world. What book are you waiting on?

Exclusive Book Trailer Premiere: Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout

I am thrilled to be apart of a team of bloggers who has the privilege of having Daemon on our blogs today helping Entangled Teen reveal the book trailer for the upcoming release of Jennifer L Armentrout's OPAL! If you've not yet picked up this series about one hot alien, and his sassy human love interest, than you're missing out! Okay really it's about Katy and her hot alien interest Daemon. Check out out this book trailer!

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love. 

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger... and they know it.
