Book of the Month: The Girl of Fire and Thorns

Description: Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who needs her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.

I'm going to try to choose the book I liked the most every month and post it at the either the end of that month or the beginning of the next month.

Why it's the book of the month:
It was so different than anything I'd ever read! It revolved around religion, there was a main character with low self-esteem who went under drastic changes throughout the book (the likes of which you don't normally see in just one book), and it had a multilayered plot.

On top of that, it didn't read like a YA book. I actually got my mother to start reading it. And she NEVER reads any of my books!
