The Selection by Kiera Cass
I give this book 4 out of 5 Bubbles. Once I had time to actually sit down and read I really like the book. Can I just say that I do not like Aspen! I wish Prince Maxon was real! I’m just saying I would marry him in a heartbeat! I can also say I don’t like Celste I want to just pull her out of the book and punch her through the whole book! and Goodness May is the cutest! I loved her letters to America. One of my favorite parts was when America was explaining her name! Now on to some of my favorite quotes.
“He stood and went to read my pin as I approached. “America, is it?” he said, a smile playing on his lips.“Yes, it is. And I know I’ve heard your name before, but could you remind me?”
“I hope you find someone you can’t live without.I really do. And I hope you never have to know what it’s like to have to try and live without them.”
“Maxon lowered his lips to mine and gave me the faintest whisper of a kiss.
Something about the tentativeness of it made me feel beautiful. Without a word, I could understand how excited he was to have this moment, but then afraid at the same time. And deeper than any of that, I sensed that he adored me.So this is what it felt like to be a lady.”
“You get confused by crying women, I get confused by walks with princes”
“I hit your thigh!” “Oh, please. A man doesn’t need that long to recover from a knee to the thigh”
Tugging my ear. Whenever.”
“Just that. Your family must be very different from mine. I’d say so. I laughed. For one, no one wears their tiaras to breakfast. Maxon smiled. More of a dinner thing at the Singer house?” “Of course.”
“Yes, Maxon, I whispered. It’s possible.”
“I only really ever hug my mother. Is this okay?” he asked. I laughed. “It’s hard to get a hug wrong.”
