Wishlist Wednesday #14

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Dani over @Pen to Paper and is a great way of showing off the books that we are dying to get our hands on :)

 Legend - Marie Lu  

 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.
Full of nonstop action, suspense, and romance, this novel is sure to move readers as much as it thrills
Dystopian novels are kind of my thing right now. I'm loving them so when I heard of this book I added it to my wishlist, intrigued. I'm just really enjoying books like this and maybe down the line I'll get bored of the genre but right now I'm devouring dystopian books like there's no tomorrow! 


  1. Ooh- what a coincidence- I just finished this book yesterday! It's really good, especially if dystopians are your thing. Hope you can get hold of a copy soon (I borrowed mine from the library).
    It's good!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog :D

  2. I hope you get your copy soon and enjoy it! Dystopian is hot right now:)

  4. Thanks for the comment on my blog and sorry about the mix-up..I've only just started it and I've recently changed the URL as I am just working out what I want it to be and represent but I would still love for you to take a look and maybe follow it! Please excuse the mess it is in...I'm still working on the look!

  5. Funny, I hadn't heard about Legend until yesterday when I saw it on the YALSA top ten list for 2012! Sounds like a good one -- nice choice!


  6. Thanks for stopping by :-) I have gone back and forth with whether I want this book or not. I like this cover a lot better than the original. If I found it for cheap I will probably grab it. I have a weakness for that. lol

  7. I want to read this book, too! Marie Lu is repped by one of my favorite agents so it was cool to see posters/promos for this book through her blog pictures (PubRants). Tell us if you get the book!
