Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.This week I'm reading by Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett and listening to The Selection by Kiera Cass, read by Amy Rubinate .
I gave up on Ten Things We Did (and Probably Shouldn't Have) by Sarah Mlynowski. It's not because it is a bad book but because I couldn't seem to get interested. I will try again later. I did read Prep School Confidential by Kara Taylor and listened to "Who Could That Be At This Hour" by Lemony Snicket. Those reviews should be up this week.
Last week I reviewed Son by Lois Lowry and posted Books I'm reading with my son and From the Library.
The Selection by Kiera Cass, read by Amy Rubinate
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.
