I don't know why I haven't read this series already. I know I'm going to love it.
3. The White Rose by Amy Ewing.
The concept of this sounds so interesting. A world where pregnancy is a death sentence. Thats all I really know. Colour me intrigued.

I have been waiting for this! I read the other two books in this trilogy, they weren't amazing but they were enjoyable.

15. Memory of Water by Emmi Itaranta
