The Betrothed

The Betrothed by Keira Cass

I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.

Imagine catching the attention of a king. Lady Hollis does not need to imagine. She is thrilled that King Jameson seems to be interested in courting her. Jameson is a very kind king and one who Hollis admires. Hollis is not exactly the perfect child her parents wanted. They wanted a son who was obedient and behaved excellently. Hollis was far from that description. However, she could become royalty and that made her parents happy. They constantly were nagging her to be someone she was not. 

When Hollis is invited to join King Jameson on a barge down the river. He floods her with compliments. Hollis throws a berry at another girl from court, hardly ladylike behavior. She falls right into the water. Jameson hardly ever laughs, but Hollis can make him laugh. 

Then Jameson invites Hollis to join him to meet a family from Isolte seeking sanctuary. This family, the Eastoffes, have traveled to Coroa to escape from their king. Hollis meets the eyes of one of the Isolten boys and sees his shocking blue eyes. This young man named Silas has eyes that are unforgettable. I don’t want to give any more details away, so you will have to read on to find out! 

I enjoyed the beginning of this book, however the end did not do it for me. Keira Cass is one of my favorite authors. I was quite disappointed by the ending. I am not going to spoil it for you guys, but suffice it to say, the ending did not satisfy me.

This book is available in hardcover and Kindle format. If you do not have a Kindle, you can read it on another electronic device. This is also a perfect excuse to buy a Kindle. I love reading on my Kindle, especially at night!

The Selection

The Selection by Keira Cass

I loved this book. It is one of my personal favorites. I give it a 5 out of 5 stars. 

Imagine a chance to be a princess. In the Selection, 35 girls are given a chance to win the luxurious lifestyle of a lavish royal. For most people this is a dream come true, a chance to move up from the caste they were born in. For America Singer, this is not what she sees. She sees a life without her secret love, Aspen. America puts her name into the lottery, assuming she definitely will not be picked. America was born a 5 and her love, Aspen is a 6. If she marries him, she will move down in caste. When America is picked to enter the Selection, she is very surprised.

She doesn’t care about the fact that the prince, Prince Maxon is in the highest caste, 1, where only royalty are. America goes into the competition expecting to hate Maxon. When she meets him however, America may begin to change her mind. 

This book is the first book in a series. It is meant to entertain. This bo…
