Hump Day Hype: #4


Synopsis For The Darkest Minds:

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

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. She is on the run, desperate to find the only safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who have 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 having a life worth living.

My Thoughts:

I actually never heard of this series until now. I saw these covers and I fell in love with them and I had to know more! This edition of The Darkest Minds series comes out January 2nd, 2018. Not too close but not too far either.

Has anyone else read this series? I feel like I’m the only one who hasn’t because I don’t read series often. If you’ve read some of my other posts you’ll know that committing to reading a series is scary for me. And no I don’t have commitment issues! Just with book series anyway. XD If you’ve read this series tell me what you think! No spoiler please! I’m just curious if any one of y’all think it’s worth it.

Anyone wanna compare with me? Let’s get started then! I’ll post a picture of the old covers and we can compare it with this new edition coming out. Sound good? Good 🙂


Here are the current covers. They look amazing as well, but for some reason I’m just drawn to the new covers coming out! What do you think? New or Old? I’m gonna have to go with new. Why? Because the new ones look more together….does that make sense? These look like they could each be a standalone. However, that’s just my opinion.

Might as well talk about the synopsis now. So, after reading the synopsis I want to buy these books but I have to say I am worried about the romance. Sometimes sci-fi, dystopian, or fantasy novels can make the romance that happens ruin the rest of the book. I don’t know if I’ve had that happen, but it is possible, because all these cool things are supposed to happen but instead you get a cringy romance. However, I have high hopes for this series. I know it’s been around for a little while, but I’m excited to purchase this new edition and dive right in! Like I always say I need more fantasy books in my life haha.

I get excited writing these posts because I love finding books that I can’t wait to buy and I love talking about them with y’all! ❤

I hope y’all enjoyed this Hump Day Hype! Please chat it up in the comments! If you would like to pre-order the new editions then just click the picture at the top and it’ll take you to Alexandra’s website where you can find the best place for you to pre-order the series. 🙂

  1. This is the first I’m seeing of the new covers! For movie adaptation covers they aren’t so bad, and that’s usually my biggest pet peeve. I’ve got the first one on my shelf, but haven’t tried them out yet. I wish us both luck lol
