Next up is The Selection by Keira Cass!
Okay, my first thought was that this was a cross between the Hunger Games and the Bachelor. I really liked the Selection!! Yes, it was kind of fluffy and fun, but a good read overall! I liked America, she could have come off as really pretentious and annoying but she was fleshed out very well. I fell in love with Maxon immediately, with all his cute clumsy bumblings! #teammaxon all the way. If you read this, be warned. There are so many cliches and tropes I lost count of. Mean girl, cute little sibling, crazy mom, shy protagonist, bubbly blonde best friend, love triangles between poor boy, protagonist, and rich boy, yadda yadda yadda. This is definitely not a deep book club read where everyone wears berets and analyzes it over black coffee and cigarettes. (i’m trying to paint an image of a Parisian literature cafe- does that do the trick?) Buuut, it’s a good story with characters you’ll enjoy, love to hate, and ultimately root for. I read the whole series through (including novellas!!) and let me just say I recommend them. (yes, all of them!!) You get insight into Maxon’s father Clarkson, his mother Amberly, America’s maid Lucy, her best friend Marlee, and Aspen. I found these other perspectives really interesting and I almost wish we could have heard all of them from the get go. Nevertheless, this was a good read and i’ll definitely read it again!

QotD: Do you have a nickname?
Call me Jess, Gecka (only if you're my sis), or Princess (okay, this comes from one person, but I like it 😉). I'll answer to them all. I spent a good part of high school being called Jennifer after my friend (Jennifer) joined the club I was in some time after me. I was even called Brittany for a time. I didn't have the nerve to correct the guy because he'd been calling me it for so long.🤦
