In The Selection, thirty-five girls are chosen to compete for the hand of Prince Maxon. Not much else to it. Great concept in a way. Horrible dystopian landing. Author trolls their readers' Goodreads reviews. Book gets way too much credit. One of the worst writings I have ever read. That’s just the brink of it.

Reboot is truly an amazing story put together by the magical hands of Amy Tintera. There is nothing I love more than settling in on my couch and reading books for hours. A mix of drama, love, action, this book will certainly draw your eye. This book is rated 6th grade and above.
