It’s that time of the week again — Goodreads Monday! This was started by Lauren’s Page Turners and it’s telling you what is on my TBR list. If it’s on my TBR list, let’s be honest, it might take a while before I get around to it, but at least it might give you some suggestions along the way.
Secret Identities. Extraordinary Powers. She wants vengeance. He wants justice.
The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies — humans with extraordinary abilities — who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone… except the villains they once overthrew.
Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice — and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to a villain who has the power to end them both.
WHY I WANT TO READ IT: This book has been recommended to me SO much, but I’ve been avoiding actually reading it because Meyer’s Cinder didn’t live up to the hype for me. I’m scared I’ll be disappointed if I finally start Renegades, which is a dumb reason to put it off, but I hate not finishing books. It hurts my soul . . .
Oh, come on, you guys! I don’t actually have a soul. But, it does hurt me not finishing books.
Outside of it being recommended to me, I want to read Renegades because it sounds like it could be enemies to lovers, which is one of my favourite tropes. I’m a little apprehensive of the superhero element since that isn’t something I tend to like, but I do love powerful characters. Nova also sounds like she could be morally grey and if there’s one thing I like more than a powerful female character, it’s a morally grey one.
Let me know what’s on your TBR list in the comments and if you’ve read Renegades, share you thoughts with me.
read it and weep,
