[tps_title]03. Ruby, The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
There’s something to be said about the way that you can read a book and connect to it on a level that’s outside of yourself. A book where you can see it happening in a week, a month, a year, maybe even tomorrow, and all to the world around you. The Darkest Minds presents to us a world that’s not very far-fetched at all, and, besides that, gives us a gift in the form of Ruby Daly. She’s a courageous character that’s been through hell since she was ten (shipped off to a concentration camp), and continues to bend the rules of selflessness as the plot develops and the pages turn. She’s a heroine meant for all of us to know, breathe in, and love. Her strength is tested, her heart is tested, and she faces it head-on. Let’s also not forget to mention that there is a romance, and it’s one for the ages. Brilliant.
You can read the follow-up books in the Darkest Minds series in the form of books Never Fade and In The Afterlight, along with a compilation called Through The Dark.
Another book trailer for you! I just love awkward narration.
