It’s official – when it comes to reading, my eyes are most definitely bigger than my stomach. I have a stack of about 20 books that I bought last year and still haven’t read. I sorted through them last weekend and promised myself I would read them before getting any new books or library books.
I already had one booked checked out on my kindle – The Selection, a YA novel that is very popular among my middle school girls. So, I picked it up Wednesday morning and stayed up too late Wednesday night to finish it. It is my favorite YA novel to date — The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games…kind of. I loved it.
Naturally that meant Thursday morning I had to go to the library to see if they had the second book in the series. And naturally when I found books 2, 3, 4 and 5 (the whole series) on the shelves, I had to get them all…plus three other books that caught my eye in the span of 10 minutes I was there.
So much for reading what was already in my house!
And, because I was too busy reading YA novels to browse anything for this post, all you’re going to get is this story and my hearty endorsement of The Selection series by Kiera Cass.
Have a great weekend!
