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 :)

The Darkest Minds - Alexandra Bracken

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.


I've been trying to justify to myself over the past few days that spending over £10 on the hardcover of this would be well worth it. I have heard nothing but great things about this book and how amazing it is. I want it. It sounds so exciting, thrilling and mysterious. Should I buy it? (say yes!). I would buy it tonight if I could just convince myself that it really is worth the money. Have you read it? If so, would you recommend it?


  1. Great pick! I have this book already but haven't opened it yet. Soon, I hope. :)

  2. I ended up getting the hardcover of this from the US... still haven't read it though. I think I'm going to have to pick it up very soon! xx

  3. Oh my god I am pining over this book. You should buy it! Go for it!
