    To be perfectly honest, this isn't a great book. Guys, it's romance, it's your typical romance book mixed in with some danger and a jealous other girl.This is set in dystopian America, after some war tore the country apart and rebuilt everything. New America has castes and royalty, castes determine where you live and your lifestyle. They're very important. Ones are the richest people, the kings and queens. The lowest caste is Eight, the poorest of the poor. America Singer (main character) is a Five, still poor but not to the extent of starving. She gets chosen for The Selection (basically The Bachelor) and competes with other girls for Prince Maxon's affection. This book really irritates me in many, many ways. The way America thinks irks me so much. Her character is sarcastic and bratty. I love sarcastic characters (ehem, Magnus Bane, Alec Lightwood, Percy Jackson...) and I really did try to love America too. She is somewhat a relatable character, she is "real", as in; She loves food, she isn't a total air-head, she fights for the lower castes. She's got a likeable side to her but her other side overbalances everything and i end up hating her. Okay, at the start, she's all homesick, she didn't even want to be in The Selection. She tries to get out of her room because it "was suffocating her" and into the gardens. She meets Prince Maxon on the way as she tries to break out, they have this super long conversation (not really) which ends up in her being really rude and kicking him where boys don't like to be kicked. Then he escorts her to the gardens and they have this super long and boring conversation of what she likes and fiwbfihgfiewbgv. After a few more days/weeks, she's seen as a "favourite" of Maxon's. When Maxon starts hanging out with the other girls in the competition, she starts getting jealous and feels as if the "special thing" they once had was "broken" and he didn't like her anymore. She forgets that she's not the only girl in The Selection and it makes me so mad on so many different levels. I hated the main character. And it's so hard to like a book if you hate the person it revolves around.

    ness33liked a comment in The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, Book One).
    *SPOILERS* Newt dies, so does Teresa. The Maze Runner series gets progressively worse, as does any other trilogy, such as Divergent, The Hunger Games, The Selection, just to name a few. I'm not saying every single trilogy will die out, The Infernal Devices trilogy absolutely didn't. The Maze Runner was fabulous, one of my favourite [yes, I'm Australian] books, The Scorch Trials was okay, it wasn't too bad but it wasn't good. Then, The Death Cure, as expected there were a lot of deaths, [Allegiant, you went too far] and that was fine, but there wasn't that spark anymore. In the last book, the burning flame that was present in the first book was just reduced to dull embers. The Kill Order, which is a prequel to the whole TMR series, was a complete let down. It was honestly so boring, to me of course, a lot of people say that TKO was the best of James Dashner, but I obviously disagree. My friend couldn't get past chapter 21 whereas I couldn't get past even the first chapter. But wait, there's more, a sequel to the prequel! I think it's coming out late next year, I'm not sure, Instagram rumours aren't always true. It's called The Fever Code and as you can see, James Dashner has a very interesting theme to his book titles. Also, Teresa's real name is Deedee. DEEDEE. Am I heavily disappointed? Yeah, you could say that.

    Aristotle feels that he will never discover who he is, while Dante knows exactly what his place in the world is. Aristotle is introverted and unsure, and Dante is self-assumed and gregarious. These two 15-year-olds are as different as night and day, but one fateful afternoon at the public pool could test their lives in unseen ways. Together, they open each other to the possibilities that life can bring, while trying to find their way through high school. Okay, so, this is probably the best book that I've ever read (YA-wise, is that a valid word?). I found this at my local independent bookstore a while ago, and I just picked it up and I read the first three chapters at the store. The plot is truly gripping, and it wouldn't let me go.
