Review: 5 Reasons Why You Should Read The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski

Monday, November 24, 2014
Why I chose this book:
For months, everyone who is anyone has been telling me to read this book. Becca from Pivot Book Reviews almost walked out on our coffee date when she heard that I had not read it. So I finally succumbed to the peer-pressure and got the audiobook. My mind is now officially overrun with everything that is The Winner’s Curse.

Synopsis:
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love 

As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions. 

One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin. 

But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined. (Goodreads)

Why I chose this book: 
I am so wary about hype. Let me tell you, if you are anywhere near anything bookish, you've definitely heard about this book. This book was campaigned like crazy. This made me nervous, since The Fifth Wave had a similar craze to it only to be a huge let down. Despite this, I trusted the opinion of popular bloggers and took the plunge. I was definitely pleased with the outcome.
