Reading Wrap-Up (March-May)

The month of June was nearing its end. From my side of the world, we only have a few hours before we bid the month of June goodbye. I’ve been meaning to do a wrap-up before yet I only have a few books to show each month. I’ve been reading slowly for months. In the month of March to May I’ve been busy with all the requirements for school. Being a graduating student at a university is tougher than it looks. And I managed to get through it! So after all the stress I decided to rest which gave me a slump for a week or two.

Anyway, I’ll quit blabbing and I’ll show you all the books that I’ve managed to finish in 3 months.

“It isn’t hard to let people die when their deaths give life to something else.”

 

SYNOPSIS:

If there’s one thing Mare Barrow knows, it’s that she’s different.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control. 

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors. 

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. 

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever?

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness that has grown in her soul.

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

The month of May marks the end of The Selection Series when the last book, The Crown, was released last May 3, 2016. I’m pretty satisfied with how the series ended and even though I want to post a review on The Crown alone, I decided to review the whole series, considering that I didn’t review the first 4 books in this blog.

If you haven’t heard The Selection Series, I would give you a little background, not really a synopsis, by not spoiling anything to you guys.

The Selection Series is a story about a prince, looking for a wife-to-be. In order to choose the woman that is suited for the prince, they held a selection where eligible girls would enter their name in the selection and the palace will randomly choose the girls that will be living in the palace and be a part of the selection. The selection is quite similar to the reality show, The Bachelor, the difference is the prince is the bachelor but the elimination and some events happening in the selection are televised like in The Bachelor.
