    The selection began with 35 girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's love is fiercer than ever. The closer America gets to the crown, the more she struggles to figure out where her heart truly lies. Each moment she spends with Maxon is like a fairy tale, filled with breathless, glittering romance. But whenever she sees her first love, Aspen, standing guard, she's swept up in longing for the life they'd planned to share.

    Story

    Normally I can easily predict the twists and turns of a book, especially a young adult novel, but with the Elite I was put n a roller coaster of twists and turns that I never saw coming. The evolution of characters was so amazing! I know you may think a series that is basically an elongated love triangle could not possibly have any large twists beyond the main character picking one person over the other. But Kiera Cass certainly did so and more. Not only that but the maturity in the storyline gave the plot so much more of an edge. I can not wait for the next installment of the Selection series and I look forward to other series from Kiera Cass.

    As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it's time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan's glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers--particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade--require Opal's unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap in to a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening.

    Story is great but the narration simply ruined it. She pauses every few seconds then over exaggerates everything it was highly annoying. I couldn't even get through the whole book.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Any additional comments?

    I truly enjoy books that mix history with fantasy and A Discovery of Witches is one of those books. A journey filled with twists and turns and romantic entanglements. The narration is superb. Making me really feel each character.

    I think my favorite part though was this mixture of historical facts and knowledge intertwined with the fictional story. It really made it come to life for me. Can't wait for the next book!
