The Selection by Kiera Cass

Sooooo.... I know! I'm sorry I haven't been posting anything on here for a while. I've just been so busy and.... Whatever! Let's get on! 
Genre: YA Dystopian 
Pages: 336
Type: #1 in The Selection Trilogy
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Synopsis: For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself--and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

  Not much to say about the book other than the fact that I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It was just such a quick and interesting read! The world was very nicely woven and everything. Although I do wish there was more action in it. But I guess you can't really say that since it IS a romance book. But still... Overall I do think the book was excellent. The characters were super interesting to read about as well. I think that anyone who enjoys somewhat love triangles, romance and dystopian minus action, will enjoy the book! 


  1. I've been meaning to pick these books up, but everytime I go to make the purchase something catches my eye instead. I've seen so many conflicting reviews on the trilogy but it's definitely not going to sway me from reading it! Thanks for sharing :)

    1. Any time! And yes, don't let other people's opinions sway you! GO READ IT!!!!
