❝ He watched her, but never knew her. Until thanks to a chance encounter, he became her savior…

The attraction between them was undeniable. Yet the past he’d worked so hard to overcome, and the future she’d put so much faith in, threatened to tear them apart.

Only together could they fight the pain and guilt, face the truth—and find the unexpected power of love.❞
On a superficial level this book is about an unexpected romance between two people. What made me fall in love with this book though, was the underlying message.

Review: The Selection


◆ The Selection by Kiera Cass
◆ Read May 2013
◆ English Edition

❝ For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.❞
I must admit that the beautiful cover got me interested in this book and this has been a mistake. Note to self: Don't judge a book by its cover. I tried my best to pick out the positive things in this book, but truly it was impossible for me to really like it.
