Book Review: Select by Marit Weisenberg

Release Date: October 3rd 2017

Coming from a race of highly-evolved humans, Julia Jaynes has the perfect life. The perfect family. The perfect destiny. But there’s something rotten beneath the surface—dangerous secrets her father is keeping; abilities she was never meant to have; and an elite society of people determined to keep their talents hidden and who care nothing for the rest of humanity.

I couldn’t help but feel disappointed while reading this book, it just wasn’t the story I wanted based on the synopsis. 

Rather than telling the story I expected about a rebellious girl discovering her powers and fighting the establishment or uncovering their darker side we have a tale about her listening to a boys thoughts and feeling guilty about it now and then, an on-off relationship with the same boy and her feeling jealous of her sister and sorry for herself. 

If you’re more into romance than action then this book may be perfect for you but I found most of the relationship boring and unbelievable. 

The ending was particularly disappointing, there’s no feeling of anticipation of what happens next and no satisfactory resolution – just Oh, that happened. *shrug*

The cover is beautiful though.. 
2/5
** I received a free Kindle edition of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review **
