Have you ever picked up a book purely because the cover was pretty? That was why I picked up the first book in The Selection series. I just couldn’t go past the girl in the pretty dress! I loved that dress!
Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Release: April 24, 2012 (first book)
Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals…
It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s love.
Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.
Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don’t know is that America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.
This book is basically like The Bachelor meets The Hunger Games. So if you like either of these, you’ll probably want to give The Selection a go. I loved the characters, as infuriating as they may be at times! This book led my poor heart into an ultimate ship war as well. Do I ship Maxon or Aspen? And I cant tell you how many times that changed!
This is a really easy and sweet read. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but its completely adorable and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance – with a bit of political action thrown in! Grab a copy here 🙂
Happy readings loves!
