What are you reading this week, lovelies?
I’ve been working my way through Marissa Meyer’s Renegades series and I’m loving it. I talked about this with a few of you on Instagram but let’s dive in a little deeper here. In case you missed the discussion within the comments on Instagram.
When Renegades was released I immediately picked up a copy. I fell in love with Marissa Meyer after reading The Lunar Chronicles and I knew she was going to be a forever favorite. However, I was hesitant to start Renegades. Why? Because sometimes the superhero topic can come across really
cheesy. Don’t get me wrong I am a HUGE Marvel fan girl and I love superheroes but they have done it right. You relate to the characters and believe that they could actually be living in our world right now. How many times have you expected The Avengers to show up when trouble comes?
Last week I got the best bookmail ever… Fierce Reads & Macmillan sent me an advanced copy of Archnemesis which is the second book in this trilogy. That’s when I knew it was time to get over my fear and read this book. I mean, what’s the worst that could happen? I hate the book and stop reading it?
I started Renegades (I’m 1/2 way through) and guess what? I’m loving it. Yes, it focuses on the superheroes and how they relate to the world but it makes them real people. They live in their homes and have normal lives and deal with politics of the world. They love and lose and they aren’t always perfect.
Marissa Meyer has blown me away by making me question are all villains truly evil and are all superheroes truly good? Once you read this book you’ll be wondering what is what and realizing life isn’t always what it seems.
I’m anxious to find some time to keep reading because I need to know what happens next. I truly can say I would recommend this book and don’t let the superhero topic sway you from reading it. This story is about a world longing for hope and people who are trying to figure out how to make that happen. It’s about finding yourself and learning that family isn’t always blood. It’s about life being hard and not fair but despite it all, things still find a way to work out.
