As a huge fan of fantasy, when I read young adult author Victoria Aveyard’s debut novel Red Queen, I had to know what happened next. In Aveyard’s novel Glass Sword, a young woman is accidentally thrown into a world of glittering jewels and magical powers in a futuristic take on the future of the United States.
I was perusing the Barnes and Noble app on my phone when I came across a book with a shiny white cover of a flower and a girl in the center. It caught my attention and I looked at the overview of the novel. I discovered it was part of a series and purchased immediately the debut novel and its companion: The Jewel and The White Rose.
Sometimes you come across that one book that kind of blows your mind and makes you think, what if? Well, Amy Ewing’s debut novel The Jewel did that to me.
I didn’t think it was possible, but The Heir made me want to be a princess even less than The Selection.
American author Kiera Cass continued her Selection series with The Heir, which focuses on the eldest child of America Singer and Maxon Schreave, Eadlyn. In order to quell unrest in the country, Eadlyn’s royal parents convince her to host her own Bachelorette-style Selection, and she gets a variety of suitors. Some look at her breasts, others are easy to get along with, and one even doesn’t speak fluent English. He’s probably my favorite. He’s adorable.
The third of American author Kiera Cass’ Selection series has finally been finished, and I must say, I am at least a little bit excited for the fourth novel The Heir.
Cass’ novel The One focuses on America Singer still fighting for her spot at the top of the Elite, the final group of girls vying for the hand of the prince. This novel has all the aspects of her previous novels: mystery, romance, politics, drama. But, I actually liked this one so much better.
As I’m sure most of you who have read The Elite know, it is the second in a series of young adult dystopian romance novels by American author Kiera Cass.
The Elite, the second of The Selection series, focuses on the main character America Singer as she climbs her way to the top of the royal food chain.
