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 book is a fantasy romance. It is a very interesting and captivating book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes romance novels and anyone who likes fantasy novels. 

This book is available in Kindle format and in paperback. It is included with Kindle Unlimited so this is a perfect time to start a free trial! If you don't have a kindle, you can read it on any device. I would rather read it on a Kindle especially when I am reading at night. Quarantine has made it hard to get books from libraries and other places where books are normally abundant, so Kindle Unlimited has been very helpful to have.

Princess in Pink

 Princess in Pink by Meg Cabot Rating: I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars Summary:  Caution: Spoiler alert!  Prom is coming soon and Mia still hasn’t been asked. Why isn’t her boyfriend, Michael Moscovitz, asking her? There are only two weeks until prom when this book starts. Mia has been dreaming of prom for years.  Mia and all of her friends try to think of reasons why Michael wouldn’t have asked her. Maybe he wants to ask her on her birthday. Maybe he wants to ask her in a romantic way. Maybe he just doesn’t want to go.  Mia’s 15th Birthday occurs at the beginning of this book. It starts out perfectly. She even gets a cell phone from her parents. Her dad gives her a pen to write with in her diary. Michael also give her a beautiful gift, but it’s not tickets to the prom.  Even Grandmere, the one Mia was not expecting a good gift from, gives Mia something amazing. She is so thankful. Mia’s is having her best birthday yet. That is, until an incident occurs, making a not-so-perfect end
