Throwback Thursday

Hey guys! 🙂 It is time for another Throwback Thursday. I think this week’s TT is going to be tribute to the first book in a series that is now coming to end on may 3rd. I loved this series from the beginning and I was so happy when I found out there was going to be another two book in the supposed trilogy to make it… five books… whatever the ology is for that!

the selection

The Selection by Kiera Cass

For thirty-five 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. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined. 

The Crown is being released at the beginning of May, and I am sad that this series is coming to an end… again! What are your Throwback Thursdays?


Throwback Thursday

Hey guys! I have decided that every week I am going to do a Throwback Thursday to highlight books that I have read, but haven’t spoken about in a while! This weeks Throwback Thursday is:

rites of passage

Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley

Sam McKenna’s never turned down a dare. And she’s not going to start with the last one her brother gave her before he died.

So Sam joins the first-ever class of girls at the prestigious Denmark Military Academy. She’s expecting push-ups and long runs, rope climbing and mud-crawling. As a military brat, she can handle an obstacle course just as well as the boys. She’s even expecting the hostility she gets from some of the cadets who don’t think girls belong there. What she’s not expecting is her fiery attraction to her drill sergeant. But dating is strictly forbidden and Sam won’t risk her future, or the dare, on something so petty… no matter how much she wants him.

As Sam struggles to prove herself, she discovers that some of the boys don’t just want her gone—they will stop at nothing to drive her out. When their petty threats turn to brutal hazing, bleeding into every corner of her life, she realizes they are not acting alone. A decades-old secret society is alive and active… and determined to force her out.
At any cost.

Now time’s running short. Sam must decide who she can trust… and choosing the wrong person could have deadly consequences.

I adored this book! Sam McKenna was such a strong female lead – she is the sort of character that any reader could look up to! She goes through a lot and she keeps her head held high! I think that any reader could learn a lot through this book – plus it is an enjoyable read!
