The Selection Series

Hi fellow Bookworms,

How are you? Leave a comment telling me what are your favourite series, because we are talking about one of mine.

So, I found out about these series in March 2017, around my birthday since my friends gave me a Bertrand card, so I decided to buy “The Selection” and “The Elite” by Kiera Cass.

I’m going to be honest, I wasn’t expecting these books to be so good. I thought it was the typical girly book, about marriage and all that. But it isn’t. For me it just shows how hard love really is. Of course when you put a competition to find a wife it’s going to be basically a reality show. Well, America is the competitor with the least probability of winning, but Maxon can’t help but fall in love with her.

The best part of this series, even tough you might find it weird, the courage that girl holds inside of her. The other girls are just there for winning, but she is there to help her family not to get a better number, to be in a higher position on their society. She’s a simple girl that likes to sing and play instruments. She is happy about where she came from.

The problem I find with the first three books, is that when Aspen goes to the palace to work, America starts jumping between him and Maxon, which I ended up finding so unfair on the guys and herself. I understand her mixed feelings but it was just so confusing.

Unfortunately, the last book is yet to be realised in Portugal, and I hate buying the series in different languages so I’m still waiting for “The Crown”, but I’m sure it is an amazing book.

I love that Cass decided to continue the series with Eadlyn, makes you dig even deeper in the story, and also shows you that girls can stand  and be the “boss” for themselves.

Overall I give the series a 8/10… not more because I prefer fantasy, but if you want to fly to a completely different place for a couple of hours give this one a go, you won’t regret it.

See you next time.

All the Love,

B xx

Eleanor and Park

Hello bookworms.

For my first review I’m going to start with my favourite book of all time, “eleanor and park” by Rainbow Rowell.

This book is really good. It as it all, friendship, love and a teenage perspective of the world. For a brief resume of it, the book is set in 1986 and talks about a girl, called Eleanor, that moves to another city and because she’s “different” from the other girls she’s basically bullied.

On the bus to school, she sits beside a boy named Park, who at first doesn’t want to talk to her, but then they end up talking and falling for each other. But the ending of the book it’s what is unexpected, they don’t end up together and happily ever after.

The book speaks to my on a personal level, because I honestly don’t believe in happy endings, and this is the first book that I’ve read that doesn’t have that, It’s rare to find that on a romantic young adult novel.

It just makes you want to dig in deeper in the book, it makes you feel what’s happening between them. Shows that love isn’t about your looks, or what amount of money you have on your bank account. It’s much more than that, it’s the story of two teens finding out how it feels to want someone so badly and in the end losing them.

It’s a book that you will really enjoy, and not want to leave. You will continue reading until you can’t. It makes you addicted, the way that Rowell writes is very enjoyable and easy. You know exactly what she wanted to say and that is a big factor on how much you end up liking a book.

The message that you should retain is that you should retain, is that life is unknown. You don’t know what is going to happen next, so you need to live the moment, not the future. If yu just think about what’s going to happen in 1 year you don’t enjoy the present that builds your future. Because Eleanor went away, Park felt lost, he wasn’t expecting that. In a weird way he ended up taking El for granted. Don’t do that.

Love everyday, live every moment. That’s what the book teaches, and that’s why I love it so much.

See you next time.

All the Love,

Hello World!

Hi people of the internet,

I’m very, very new at this kind of thing called blogging, so do excuse me if I make mistakes, but I’m learning.

I love reading, and even tough I don’t study literature, it’s a thing that I always like to do. Yes, I do read other reader’s blogs, but I thought “why don’t I just give it a shot?”.

My favourite genres are fantasy and young adult. I read quite fast, so expect a lot of reviews. I do want to keep a blogging schedule, but for now I’m just going to wing it and see what happens.

If you have any book recommendations, leave a comment and I will thank you very much.  My goodreads page is Beatriz Mouga if you wanted to know.

Oh, before you go, and if you’re still reading this, I’m Beatriz, but you can call me Bea. I’m Portuguese so book covers and titles of pictures ae going to be a bit different, and sorry for my english mistakes.

That’s all for my first post. Hope you liked it, and see you next time.

All the Love,

B xx
