Review of The Healer’s Apprentice
A sweet romance and a life lesson, that when we follow God’s calling and do the right thing, He will bless our path. Although it may be in a way we least expect.
Review of The One
Being that this is the third book in the series I don’t want to give away too many spoilers. But let me just say that Kiera Cass did a wonderful job of bringing America’s Selection to a close.
Review of The Elite
I found The Elite even more engrossing than The Selection. An excellent continuation of the series. Kiera’s writing improves with this book and I was very impressed.
Review of The Red Queen
Not gonna lie…I was a bit sceptical when I picked up this book. But I was quickly pulled into the world of Reds and Silvers and the Red Guard. I found myself listening to this book every spare minute I had. Intrigue, secrets, unknown powers, fears, lies, family, betrayal, and HOPE bleed onto the pages of this book in a neverending flow.
Review of The Selection
It has been a long while since I have been so engrossed in a book that I couldn’t put it down to go to sleep. I finally had to, as my eyes wouldn’t stay open any longer, with only two chapters remaining!
