Another Great Dystopian

Absolutely Brilliant!!

MY THOUGHTS I've been seeing this book around for awhile, but it just didn't really interest me. Mostly due to the fact that it takes place during a war. One day, I decided to read the synopsis again and saw: "She must disguise herself as a...

Not as Good as The Selection, but a Great Start to a New Series

MY THOUGHTS I admit, The Selection series is one of my guilty pleasures, so I was excited to read this spin-off. It wasn't as amazing as The Selection series, mostly because I can't ship anything yet, but this was a really great start to another series! ...

MY THOUGHTS A dystopian book with a plot based on how no one reads the fine print, and now they either die or become assassins. Who reads the fine print, right? No one does, I don't, so a dystopian based on this is very interesting. ...
