Book I Covet: Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu

Wednesday, May 16, 2012 with
Why Michelle covets this book: Legend was my favorite dystopian read of 2011 and I cannot wait to find out what will happen next to June and Day in Prodigy.

But, hot damn, it doesn't come out until next year... Well, that just means if you haven't read Legend yet you have time to do so. ;)

I really like the cover of Prodigy as well, much more than Legend (which I thought was too plain).

book coverProdigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu
(Putnam; out January 29, 2013)
The Elector Primo of the Republic has died, with his son assuming power over what’s left of the USA’s West Coast as it teeters on full-blown chaos. June and Day join up with Patriot rebels so they can rescue Day’s brother and head east for the Colonies. In order to help, though, the rebels want June and Day to kill the new Elector, who may pose an even greater threat than his father.

What book(s) do you "covet" this week?
Leave a comment with a link so we can check your WoW of the week too.

"Books I Covet" is a weekly or bi-weekly blog post series I am going to be doing here. It will feature books I am very excited about reading and plan on buying/borrowing in the near future. It is similar to the "Waiting On" meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. However, some of the books may already be published and others may still be in pre-order. I will include the books' blurb, cover art, and/or release date if they're available. Click on the WoW image on the left to join in!
