Today I went to the Girrawheen Library which is a part of the City of Wanneroo here in Western Australia. I picked up FOUR books which I will be listing in this particular blog.
You will find the first book really shows that it is the type of novel I would DEFINITELY read. Just look at the FIRST WORD! But it is BOOK FIVE of the “The Selection Series”.
The Selection Series is a series of five young adult novels written by Kiera Cass. It focuses on The Selection, a competition for the current king’s heir for a hand in marriage. Source: Wikipedia
A selection can ONLY have ONE winner. A PRINCESS only has one HEART. ❣
When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illea to hold her own selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty five suitors but as events at the palace force her even further into the spotlight she realised that she might not be content remaining alone.
She still isn’t sure she will find the fairy – tale ending her parents did twenty years ago but sometimes the HEART has a way of surprising you…….
and filled with JUST the right amount of SWOON!
NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author, Kiersten White
Happily Ever After is the companion to The Selection Series.
The blue on the book says “Before Amberley came to the palace….. she was a Four in love with a One.
Before Maxon met the girl of his dreams….. he was the boy of someone else’s
Before Aspen opened his heart to someone new…… he was determined to fight for his first love.
And before Marlee could fall for a price…… she was swept away off her feet by a guard!
FOUR stories for me to FALL IN LOVE with!
It has exclusive scenes and lush illustrations with a BONUS epilogue to the book THE ONE it has an enchanting collection of Selection stories:
The Sunday Times Bestseller, Lucy Diamond, gives a HUGELY (and not just the thickness of the book) satisfying read based in Manchester.
Four friends meet for a birthday lunch.
They witness an accident just metres away from them and it acts as a catalyst for each of them!
LAURA – it’s a wake up call to heed the ticking of her biological clock
JO – has a new relationship but has to be cautious
EVE – has been trying to ignore the worrying lump in her breast, feels entirely helpless and out of control
And then there’s India, who is drawn to one of the victims of the accident causing long – buried secrets to rise to the surface.
This is a novel about the startling and unexpected turns life can take. It’s about luck – good and bad – and about finding bravery and resilience when your world is in turmoil.
It’s about friendship, togetherness and HOPE.
OK MAGAZINE says “A RIVETING read to get stuck in to”
The House of Farrell – home of “The Cream”, an iconic face product that has seen women flocking to its bijoux flagship store in the Berkeley Arcade since 1953.
At Farrell you can rely on the personal touch. The legendary Athina Farrell remains the company’s figurehead and in her kingdom at the Berkeley Arcade, Florence Hamilton plies their cosmetics with the utmost discretion. She is sales advisor – and holder of secrets – extraordinare!!!!!
But of course the world of cosmetics is changing and the once glorious House of Farell is now in decline, it’s customers tempted away by more fashionable brands. Enter Biance Bailey, formidable businesswoman, mother of three, and someone who always gets her way. Athina and Bianca lock horns over the future of the House of Farrell but it is the past that tells it’s devastating tale of ambition and ego, passion and wonder.
The Daily Express says “Like a glass of champagne: BUBBLY! Moreish and you DON’T want it to end!!!!
Woman and Home tell it – Teeming with memorable characters, this is pure pleasure, “VINCENZI Style”
So these will keep me busy for the next few weeks, or MONTHS!!!!! I haven’t been blog posting so regularly but the recent post was a video from my trip to England so I guess that counts for SOMETHING!
So don’t forget to go to your local library and have a look for these selections on the “Selection Stories” collection! Haha!
If you haven’t been to your local library ever, it’s NOW time for you to do a Google Search!
