    For 35 girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: the opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth... to be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels... to live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon. But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    America was the center point of the story so I would have to say her. I think if I could get further into Maxon's or Aspen's worlds, I could pick them as well. I love that America stays true to herself and her roots. I love that Maxon turned out to be completely unlike I had predicted he would be. Aspen has that "dangerous" quality that comes with loving someone forbidden. I have actually found myself torn on who I want America to end up with.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Extreme reaction? I think that might be going a little far. I liked this book at lot, and I am definitely looking forward to the release of book 2. I found myself giggling a couple of times during the book - one time in particular when she takes her maids with her to the "safe room" during a rebel attack and told them that since nobody else cared to bring their maids that they were not to serve any of them.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great read. I listened to the entire book in the same day, staying up late because i "had" to know what happened. Yes, the ending leaves you hanging. But... that is to be expected in a series and I felt like it was a good place to stop and start the next book. It definitely could have been much worse at the end. The narrator wasn't bad. I didn't think she was perfect but there was nothing about her that would make me not want her to narrate the next book. I will be grabbing the 2nd book as soon as it becomes available, and I look forward to listening to this one again just before I start the 2nd. Reading books more than once isn't something I do a lot so that says a lot about this book in my opinion.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Tiger's Voyage to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version but I have to say that the narration really brought this to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book broke my heart and made me fall in love. I felt the emotions - This entire series has made me laugh and cry. Several times I wanted to embrace the characters and sometimes I wanted to take a book and smack it over their heads in frustration.


    Any additional comments?

    This series has it all. Adventure, Love, heartbreak, Fantasy, Magic. Give Me Book 4!!!! I'm dying to know what happens next!

    Back in Oregon, Kelsey tries to pick up the pieces of her life and push aside her feelings for Ren. But danger lurks around the corner, forcing her to return to India where she embarks on a second quest--this time with Ren's dark, bad-boy brother Kishan, who has also fallen prey to the Tiger's Curse. Fraught with danger, spellbinding dreams, and choices of the heart, Tiger's Quest brings the trio one step closer to breaking the spell that binds them.

    Would you listen to Tiger's Quest again? Why?

    Yes and I probably will. This is a book that I can get lost in and I miss it now that it is over.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Picking a favorite is impossible. All the characters are built beautifully and they feel like real people to you.


    What about Annika Boras’s performance did you like?

    Conversations come to life in her narrations.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This series is full of "moments". So many times, i caught myself holding my breath.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a series that I have lost myself in. I have fallen in love with the characters, laughed and cried in this series. I am anxiously awaiting book 4 and I miss the characters in this series in between books. I will come back to this series again and again.
