Hello book nerds! Another week means another YA weekly! This week Marissa Meyer gave us information on her new book, we had some amazing YA movie news (Simon, AND Three Dark Crowns!!!), and we even got a peak into pop-star Iggy Azalea’s newest YA project! We are next-level happy with YA this week. Let’s get it rolling!
Marissa Meyer’s New Book!
Marissa Meyer’s new novel, titled RENEGADE is out on November 7th!
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.
Add Renegades to your Goodreads shelf!
