From the Back of My Shelf is a bi-monthly event, that happens on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month where you pull a book from the back of your shelf (with a 2010 release or prior) and review it. It’s a way to read some of those books that have been gathering dust while new books came out. Feel free to join in and participate, and link your reviews up in the Mr Linky below. Check out more in my intro post here here.

Dancia Lewis doesn’t seem all that special. In fact, Dancia’s mediocrity is a calculated cover for her secret: whenever she sees a person threatening someone she cares about, things just . . . “happen.” When recruiters from the prestigious Delcroix Academy show up to offer her a full scholarship, Dancia suspects the recruiters know more about her “gift” than they’re letting on.
The Candidates by Inara Scott has been a book I have been very excited for since before it came out, but for some reason I didn’t read it until now. I found The Candidates to be a very promising start to a series, and I’m super excited to see what happens next.
I thought the plot was really interesting. It held such an air of mystery around it for the majority of the book. I was constantly wanted to know more, as I felt that with every chapter there was more intrigue, which made me just want to keep reading. The entire time I was riding I didn’t want to put down The Candidates.
I loved Jack. He was so witty, funny, and charming. I am very curious to see more of him in future books! Cam never felt completely real to me, especially towards Dancia. Esther and Hennie were both complete riots, they were awesome.
I am super excited to hear more from Dancia and the rest of the crew at Delcroix Academy. The Candidates ends on a very dramatic note, so I cannot wait to read The Marked. The Candidates was a enjoyable read that I just breezed through.
