Prodigy by Marie Lu

I love Day. I could pretty much squee over him -- you see this bad line coming -- every day. (Couldn't resist!) So when I saw that my friend Nat over at The Fandom was reading Prodigy, I had to add my "I love Day!!!!" thoughts to her review. With that, she was gracious enough to let me borrow her copy of Prodigy, so I could continue to discover why I love Day. It actually came in handy, as this was the book I brought with me to read over Christmas break, and my flight was delayed THREE HOURS. You know what I was doing! Afterward my family was like, "Your flight was delayed three hours and you didn't call us?!" Yeah...I was a little sidetracked, guys. His name is Day. 

But onto the review!

I loved, loved Legend. And would you believe that Prodigy was even better?!?! Me neither, but it was! I loved reading about June and Day's relationship. They both had common doubts about it that you just wished they could sit down and adequately express to each other -- because they were both crazy about each other! 

Prodigy starts right where Legend left off, which is nice. June and Day are together, and they are on a mission to find Day's brother. Well, the heart-wrenching part of it is that they are soon on a new mission, which they must complete first -- a mission which requires them to be apart! And while they are apart, there is the new Elector, and there is Tess, and that's all I am going to say about that right now!

I flew through this during my flight delay and I will keep this review spoiler free, but the end -- DESTROYED ME!!! My poor, poor heart. I read it like a month ago and I'm still in pain over it, Marie Lu!!

AMAZING book. If you loved Legend, you'll love Prodigy. If you liked Legend, you'll love Prodigy. If you haven't read either one of these books -- what are you doing?! Go read them now, now, now!!! Just remember...Day is mine :)

  1. Absolutely LOVED Prodigy. I don't know how Marie Lu does it.

    And I agree with you about that ending. I was in class when I read it, and I started crying...
