Bookish Thoughts

A place for me to share my thoughts about the books I read.

The Selection

The Selection - Kiera Cass

The Selection was a fun surprise for me. I loved the plot idea from the beginning and it delivered! It had a lot more flirting and romance that made it a fun read but it wasn’t without its tense and dark moments. It was wonderfully balanced out in its portrayal. The characters I got a lot more attached to. I loved America and her family and even some of the other contestants I came to like. I don't usually make up my mind on who I absolutely choose in a love triangle situation right away I just pick favorites based off of the recent book I read. However, I adore Maxon. He is sweet, shy, hopelessly lost when it comes to girls and such a realistic character by not being perfect in anyway. I definitely recommend this book, specifically to historical/dystopian lovers.
