What would you kill for?After a brutal nuclear war, the United States was left decimated. A small group of survivors eventually banded together, but only after more conflict over which family would govern the new nation. The Westfalls lost. Fifty years later, peace and control are maintained by marrying the daughters of the losing side to the sons of the winning group in a yearly ritual. This year, it is my turn. My name is Ivy Westfall, and my mission is simple: to kill the president's sonmy soon-to-be husbandand return the Westfall family to power. But Bishop Lattimer is either a very skilled actor or he's not the cruel, heartless boy my family warned me to expect. He might even be the one person in this world who truly understands me. But there is no escape from my fate. I am the only one who can restore the Westfall legacy.Because Bishop must die. And I must be the one to kill him...

This book caught my eye from the cover, when i scanned the back over the synopsis, I was very well intrigued! I must say the author gave a good background about the past which didn't bore any readers, it was not too much. Gave plenty of information. I, however, got bored of the book in the middle. The rising action dragged a bit, but all of a sudden, the climax was excellent and was thrilling. Other than that, I can't wait to read more books!

The paperback is only $4.34 on Amazon right now. I've been wanting to read this series for a long time.

4/5 stars
I absolutely flew through this book! Even though it's a dystopian novel, there's a lot more focus on the romance. The world reminds me of Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, and the plot was action-packed. I demand the sequel!

The problem with The Book of Ivy, isn't The Book of Ivy. It's been cast in the wrong genre. The post-apocalyptic dystopian USA setting is irrelevant. This could easily have been set in a fictional realm. It's more romantic and angsty, than action packed. But it was genuine and I actually enjoyed it. Ends on a cliffhanger and I will probably read the 2nd eventually. ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5 #thebookofivy #romance #yafiction

November reads time ! The Book of Ivy was definitely my favourite one of this month fallowed by In the After . Both futuristic dystopian YA types .I also continued the Rosemary Beach series by Abbi Glines that I like and finished Remembering Everly which is the sequel to Forgetting August. Great books this month ! 👌🏻📚❄️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I just loved this book. YA dystopian romance with a good mystery to it . The way Amy Engel wrote it is a real page turner. I've been waiting really impatiently for the sequel to be available at my library. The depth of the character development was great and and the author knew how to reveal just enough to keep us going . I would've loved if it had been longer though, put more to the story. 9/10 ⭐️👌🏻📚

Today marks the fourth... yes FOURTH book I've quit! The shame is almost unbearable. But I just can't seem to get my mind to settle on something. Usually that's the case when I'm writing heavily, but I'm dying to read something fantastic! Starting #thebookofivy today! 🙌🏻 hopefully this is the book!

Not a lot of people have been talking about this duology but I want to take the time to talk about these books. It's a distopian world where all girls have to marry a boy the society choose for them. There's action, politics, mystery and it's really interesting. You won't regret reading them! 5/5 ⭐️

Is there an “I‘m in love with Bishop Lattimer” club? Because I need to be in it. The Book of Ivy is on my list of favorite books for good reason - grab this Duology asap!

WilowRaven I kinda love duologies (sp?) These sounds pretty fab! 4y
