It's a new year, and that means a whole new year of #WednesdayYA! If you don't know what #WednesdayYA, Misty of The Book Rat and I realized that when we looked at our lists of books we own but haven't read, we have a lot in common. Now, each month of the year, we pick one book and read it together. We wrapped up 2014 with a liveshow on Misty's channel.
Since we didn't do a book in December, Misty and I wanted to get the ball roll for January by just picking something. Here's what we decided on:
What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.
From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.(Summary from GoodReads)
So if you've read this book or want to join the chat, we'll be discussing it on January 28th at 8:30 p.m. EST. Since you guys seemed to like the Liveshow format, we'll be doing a Liveshow on my YouTube channel--you can find the link in the sidebar.
Happy January and happy reading! We can't wait to discuss Legend with you later this month.
