The Rose Society by Marie Lu {Review + Readalong}

MY RATING : ★★★★★

“Fear motivates, more than love or ambition or joy. Fear is more powerful than anything else in the world. I have spent so long yearning for things—for love, for acceptance—that I do not really need.”
Marie Lu, The Rose Society

13106098_10154242094512780_397015844_oThis book is the sequel of The Young Elites by Marie Lu. If you haven’t read the book, you can find my review here. And… simply backing off from this HAHA 😀 No no, wait before you go! I am going to add this little detail : THIS SEQUEL IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST BOOK AHH ❤ Okay that’s it. You can go. AND COME BACK! 😛

Those of you who have read the first one and want to continue reading this review you are welcome to stay 😉 DFS


  1. THE ANTI-HEROINE. Adelina’s traits of characters undergo such a wonderful development. Not for the good, but for the bad. That is something uncommon in trilogies and it has been done beautifully. We can feel the hunger for power along with her battle between good and evil.
  2. ALL THE CHARACTERS ARE GREAT AND UNIQUE. If you like Six of Crows, yes, these new Elites from The Rose Society are as noteworthy and singular as the The Dregs. You have a the Puppet Master, the Rainmaker, Sergiano the copy cat. Along with Adelina, they are #squadgoals LOL giphy3
  3. THE CLEVERNESS. Oh my, you have no idea how Adelina’s power has more and more effects. The way she be using it and expanding it is genius.
  4. FOR ONCE, the second book in a trilogy impressed me. It’s not a repetitive pattern like the Divergent Series or The Hunger Games series. You know how the second book is about escaping their world and find refugees with other refugees blablabla… This book is actually about COMING BACK to their world AND FIGHTING AND CONQUERING. Not with weapons or anything. With POWER and WIT. YAAS giphy2
  5. DEFYING the laws of Nature. This book is phenomenal! Giving the powers to control beyond the living and the death, talking about real issues and more importantly, an author who finally addresses about one’s power limits, how their own thoughts can turn against them.

I did a read-along with Amy @BookEnthral 😀 And we have come up with a bunch of casting for The Rose Society Movie 😉 Look how cool these characters are!

You should check out Amy’s Post for this read-along too it was amazing!!

    I’ve been wanting to read Young Elites. It’s been on my Kindle for months, and I keep forgetting about it. I was hoping it would win May BOTM for Hype or Like Friday so I held off. It lost the vote for May, but after reading your review about how well developed the series is, I think I need to bump this one up on my TBR. I haven’t heard one bad thing about this series, which is always good. Nice review!
