Just last week, Marie Lu‘s “The Young Elites” came out in paperback and that just means there’s about a month left until “The Rose Society” comes out.
The JJJ Book Club may be just a little — well, way too excited about that, so we had to chat with Marie about the book series and we uncovered the playlist that inspired the books.
“These are all songs from my playlist for ‘The Young Elites’. But I like to think Adelina has these on her personal playlist, too. Her soundtrack for life, I suppose!” Marie dished to JJJ.
First song: “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” Remix by Emily Browning.
“This is the very first song I ever added to my playlist for The Young Elites. I’ve always liked the ominous lyrics of the original ‘Sweet Dreams,’ and even though I’m not the biggest Sucker Punch fan, I’m in love with this eerie remix. It’s so haunting and so perfect for Adelina,” Marie explained to us.
Most appropriate lyrics: “Some of them want to use you, Some of them want to get used by you, Some of them want to abuse you, Some of them want to be abused.”

Raise your hand if you were seriously bummed that Lifetime’s Witches of East End was canceled after just two seasons! Yea, us too…
Good thing that author Melissa de la Cruz LOVES us and gave JJJ the exclusive opportunity to share an excerpt from short story she wrote that will tie up all the loose ends.
The story will also be featured in Melissa’s upcoming novel, “Triple Moon”, which hits shelves on November 10th.
“Triple Moon”, a Summer on East End novel, centers on twin witches Mardi and Molly Overbrook, who after they cause a terrible accident at their old high school, are sent to live with their “Aunt” Ingrid Beauchamp in North Hampton, on Long Island’s mist-shrouded East End. Unable to control their powers, their father begs Ingrid to tame them over the summer, before the White Council exiles the girls to Limbo.
Trouble continues to bubble and boil when the girls meet the younger Gardiner boys, who are just as handsome and sexy as their older kin. But all is not as it seems. As Ingrid helps the girls learn to control their magical impulses, Mardi and Molly have just this summer to figure out how to grow up, how to love, and how to be a family.
