Which is the truth and which is the lie?
Now that Ella knows who Juliette is and what she was created for, things have only become more complicated. As she struggles to understand the past that haunts her and looks to a future more uncertain than ever, the lines between right and wrong—between Ella and Juliette—blur. And with old enemies looming, her destiny may not be her own to control.
The day of reckoning for the Reestablishment is coming. But she may not get to choose what side she fights on.
This book was probably the most anticipated one for this year. I have been waiting to know how this entire series was going to end, especially after the ending in the last novella. Having followed this series for such a long time, I was definitely emotionally invested at 10000%. I was hoping this book was going to be explosive with all the Warnette scenes I needed since the fourth book came out but never got with Restore Me and Defy Me, but… it was everything but that 😓.

I’ve finally made it, friends. I’ve finally read this series that everyone’s seemed to have read ages ago 😂. I’ve heard about this series for a while and with the Netflix adaptations coming out, they all resurfaced. I watched the movies and really liked them, so I decided to give the books a try. I’m currently reading The Remnants Chronicles, but I needed something to really pick up my reading pace and give me some good old romance and heartbreak I freaking love in my YA books.

I never thought I would be reading this series because of how insanely bizarre this whole storyline seemed. I can’t watch The Bachelor, so I always thought that The Selection was going to be a no-go for me. But I was kind of desperate to get out of this reading slump and I needed something that would be quite the quick read and since I had purchased the first novel as an e-book when it was on sale, I decided to give it a go and I honestly was pleasantly surprised! Definitely taught me not to judge a story before trying to read it.
There are some spoilers in my review, so be advised if you haven’t read the books yet.

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver. The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change. That is until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime. But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.
This book has been on my TBR since 2015 and I bought it back in 2016, hoping to read it soon since it was such a popular series back then. I finally decided to take it off my bookshelf and read it and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn’t the greatest book but it did make me want to know what would happen next in the series so I went ahead and ordered the rest of the books on Amazon 😂.

I think that I’ve come to terms with the fact that the Shatter Me series is my favourite YA series 😂. I’m so invested in these character and the storyline, I’m kind of sad that it’s ending in the final book. But at the same time, I can’t wait to see how everything ends in Imagine Me and I hope that we get a happy ending 😩. I personally think that the novellas in between releases are a great way to keep the readers entertained while make them anticipate the release of the novel.

I screwed up 😂. When I decided to reread An Ember in the Ashes, I thought it was supposed to be a trilogy. Having already purchased the sequel when it was published, I told myself I could just by the third one and marathon the series. Only when I started to read the the first book and got well invested in it, I found out it was actually a quartet and that the last book is not coming out before APRIL 2020 😩. At least I am now caught up with one of the most popular YA series out there 😂.
Btw, in the new cover of An Ember in the Ashes, was I the only who never saw Elias until recently? 😂

Two years ago, Louise le Blanc fled her coven and took shelter in the city of Cesarine, forsaking all magic and living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.
Sworn to the Church as a Chasseur, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. His path was never meant to cross with Lou’s, but a wicked stunt forces them into an impossible union—holy matrimony.
The war between witches and Church is an ancient one, and Lou’s most dangerous enemies bring a fate worse than fire. Unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, a choice must be made.
And love makes fools of us all.
GUYS. I think I found my favorite book of the year. I did not feel invested in a story like this one for a good while and it feels sooooo good. This book has definitely help me get out of my reading slump and I cannot wait for the sequel. I almost feel sad that I have read this book so early after its publication date because now I have to wait until August 2020 for the sequel to get more of the story.
