The Heir Review

After a month long hiatus (I’m sorry!!) I am back and ready for many new posts. This summer has been amazing for reading, lots of time for lounging around with a great book and great friends. I started and finished the Selection series in June and I loved it so much I drove to Target right away to pick up The Heir, the first book in Kiera Cass’s spin-off duology of the Selection books.

Important note: if you have not read The Selection and want to, then don’t read this post! The Heir’s premise spoils the rest of the series. Go out and read The Selection first:)Screen Shot 2015-07-18 at 8.04.00 PM

And Ellie read in hilarious voices that constantly had me cracking up. The only downside was my throat killed after finishing the book haha. Read more
