Book Haul #10

Here we are again, hands up who’s surprised? Why am I not surprised that precisely zero hands shot in the air there? In my defence, I have come to the realisation that I need to stop buying books this year, and as my eagerly awaited pretty edition of Children of Blood and Bone has been released, I can stop buying. That’s the plan anyway. We’ll see how long it actually lasts! I think the amount I am building through my bookish savings jar has made me realise that this is a brilliant way for me to save money. It hasn’t stopped me reading or hauling, but it has allowed me to save a lot of spending money for Disney already!

Also, Happy International Women’s Day! Can we just take a second to discuss how many of these books are by awesome female authors?  Continue reading “Book Haul #10”


The Selection | Review

Title: The Selection

Author: Kiera Cass

Rating: 4 Stars

Dates read: 27 Feb 18 – 01 Mar 18

Publication date: 26 Mar 2013

Publisher: Harper Collins

Genre(s): Young Adult; Dystopian


Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals…

It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s love.

Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.

Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don’t know is that America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.

*This is a relatively spoiler free review*
