Falling Behind on Friday is an original weekly feature created at Moirae the Fates. The idea is that each week you pick a book that you are ashamed to admit has been on your TBR pile for a longtime and showcase it to your audience. You can find out more about this feature here.
This week I am falling behind on:
NEVER FADE BY ALEXANDRA BRACKEN
Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them on a daily basis, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government and breaking into the minds of her enemies. Other kids in the Children’s League call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster.
When Ruby is entrusted with an explosive secret, she must embark on her most dangerous mission yet: leaving the Children’s League behind. Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children—and turned Ruby and the others who lived into feared and hated outcasts—has survived every attempt to destroy it. But the truth is only saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart, the boy Ruby once believed was her future—and who now wouldn’t recognize her.
As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country to find Liam—and answers about the catastrophe that has ripped both her life and America apart—she is torn between old friends and the promise she made to serve the League. Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. But what if winning the war means losing herself?
Why am I falling behind?
I'm really disappointed that I'm falling behind with this book because I absolutely adored The Darkest Minds! It was a little bit slow at times but I've heard that this one really wipes the floor with the first book and how it's so much better than anyone expected. I think because of all of the hype and speculation, I don't want to go in and be disappointed considering how much I enjoyed the first book. I even own the third book, In The Afterlight, so I intend to marathon the entire series sometime soon!
