Want Books: Secret Society Girl

Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.

Secret Society Girl is a series of books by Diana Peterfreund starting with a book with the same title. Here’s the summary for the first book from Diana Peterfreund’s website:

Secret Society Girl takes us into the heart of the Ivy League’s ultra-exclusive secret societies when a young woman is invited to join as one of their first female members.

Elite Eli University junior Amy Haskel never expected to be tapped into Rose & Grave, the country’s most powerful–and notorious–secret society. She isn’t rich, politically connected, or…well, male.

So when Amy receives the distinctive black-lined invitation with the Rose & Grave seal, she’s blown away. Could they really mean her?

Whisked off into an initiation rite that’s a blend of Harry Potter and Alfred Hitchcock, Amy awakens the next day to a new reality and a whole new set of “friends”–from the gorgeous son of a conservative governor to an Afrocentric lesbian activist whose society name is Thorndike. And that’s when Amy starts to discover the truth about getting what you wish for. Because Rose & Grave is quickly taking her away from her familiar world of classes and keggers, fueling a feud, and undermining a very promising friendship with benefits. And that’s before Amy finds out that her first duty as a member of Rose & Grave is to take on a conspiracy of money and power that could, quite possibly, ruin her whole life.

It’s a series about a girl who joins a secret society in a fictional school modeled after an Ivy League university! Doesn’t that sound exciting? That plus the number of good reviews that I’ve seen for this series has encouraged me to add these books to my ever-increasing wishlist. I plan to order this series next when I do decide to order from abroad.

What about you, what’s on your wishlist? 🙂

  1. I am really into secret societies and I will definitely put this series on my list. Thanks so much for the review! I currently have the Kate Daniels series as well as some more Philippa Gregory novels on my wishlist. Happy reading!

    • I haven’t read any books about secret societies but there was an episode in the Gilmore Girls (one of my favorite TV shows) where Rory discovered a secret society at Yale so I’m interested in this one. Plus, I’ve seen great reviews. I’ll add your books in the roundup. 🙂

    • I’ve seen a lot of good reviews of these books so I’m curious about them. Plus, I haven’t seen any other YA series that deals with a secret society in an Ivy League school.

    • My Want Books picks are books that aren’t available over here. 🙂 I thought I should do something positive instead of always complaining that I can’t get all of the books that I want because of availability issues.

Comments are like chocolate. :) Maraming salamat / thank you!
