What are you currently reading?
The first three books followed the story of America Singer, who enters the Selection along with 34 other girls to get a chance to marry the prince of Illéa. America doesn’t initially want to be part of the Selection, but she ends up learning a lot about herself and falling in love with Prince Maxon.
The fourth and fifth books in The Selection series focus on America and Maxon’s oldest child, Eadlyn. She is the elder of a set of twins, making her the heir to the throne.
The last two books focus on her Selection. What I’ve found interesting about these two books so far is that it’s told from the perspective of the one doing the selecting, and not that of a contestant. We still get the strong female main character, but she’s coming from a place of power.
What did you recently finish reading?
I recently finished reading The Circle by Dave Eggers on Friday.
It was an enjoyable read that made me think a lot, but I couldn’t help but feel it was trying to be something it wasn’t. Read my review here.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I think I’m planning on reading Outcast by Raelynn Fry. I had been waiting for this book to come out for what seemed like FOREVER (I read Caste while recovering for an injury back in 2013). And then this year I haven’t been reading and my TBR pile got a little out of control.
