March Pick: THE DARKEST MINDS! | #WednesdayYA bookclub [1.3.1]

As I mentioned in last week's #WednesdayYA post, Liz and I decided that we'd get to pick the books read during our respective birth months, and since March is mine, I was tasked with choosing our March read! Turns out this isn't as easy as it sounds, 'cause I have this condition where I want to read all the things, but after a little waffling (and some pointed prodding from Liz), I've settled on:

Yep! Our March bookclub pick is The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken! A lot of you asked for it when I showed it in my most recent haul, so I hope that means you guys will join us for our discussions and general #WYA-ness throughout the month.

Just like last month, we'll be hosting a Twitter chat on the second-to-last Wednesday of March, but until then, we'll just be generally chatting, tweeting, Goodreads-ing and Instagramming it up! If you've been meaning to read The Darkest Minds, please feel free to pick up your copy (or grab one) and join in; if you've already read it, we'd still love to hear your thoughts! Feel free to join in the discussion at any time throughout March!
Can't wait to see what you (and we) think of The Darkest Minds!

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Sci-Fi/Dystopia, 488 pages
Published December 18th 2012 by Disney Hyperion
When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government "rehabilitation camp." She might have survived the mysterious disease that's killed most of America's children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she's on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her-East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can't risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
