UGH 😍😭 needed something like this to catapult me out of a bad book binge! So easy to fly through in a day or two & great, casual writing style. Hunger Games meets the Bachelor, especially at first, but it ends up becoming it‘s own fantastic story!! Loved and so ready to inhale ANYTHING by this author!

This was my #doublespin for April with @TheAromaofBooks

It also is for #Booked2022 about a royal. I listened to it in one day on April 1. I hated the narrator, and the story felt like Hunger Games meets The Bachelor. It was just ok for me, and I will not be reading more in the series.

Just got my special edition of ‘The Selection‘ by my queen Kiera Cass made by #beaconbookbox and I‘m so happy, they‘re so beautiful and I can‘t express how much I‘m in love with them. My old copies were literally falling apart and it‘s so nice to have these.

Such a good book! I like the dystopian setting and honestly, I‘d read a whole history textbook about the backstory behind Illéa. I liked the characters and the plot, but I wish there was more talk about the food they ate. 5?

I thought this was a super good book. Almost like a mix of Esther and The Hunger Games, minus the death and killing.

3/5
It‘s your typical fast-paced, cutesy, YA book that‘s been in my TBR for awhile. Not much plot depth. It ropes you in with poor girl given a chance to turn her life around; a unique element was adding the caste system. Good political & historical components without throwing narratives or opinions in your face. It‘s enough reality tv show mixed with real teenage life feel. Super quick read that made me want to pick up the next, I‘m invested.

This is an awesome book I‘m only halfway through but when I pick up this book I can‘t put it down. The plot so far is really great too I recommend reading it.

I really enjoyed this lighthearted YA romance. At first, it was a little slow for me as I was figuring out the timeline and the caste system. It does take place in the future when the US no longer exists after WW4.
I like America a lot. She is spunky and stubborn, but very caring.
Some parts were very predictable, but overall it was a page turner for me and I really enjoyed it. I have a book hangover now!

OH. MY. GOSH what is this book? I love it!
I could hardly put it down and before I knew it, it was over. I‘m currently in the 3rd book as I type this😅

It‘s the perfect amount of romance and cheesy comedy. Just like junk food, sometimes you need a book like this to feed your soul. And in my case, it‘s a rare indulgence since I tend to avoid romance novels altogether.

Rating: 5/5

100% a guilty pleasure.

A group of girls fighting for the attention of a Prince, cringe but totally engrossing too. Between the catty ones, the shy ones, the happy ones it‘s totally a addictive story.

I‘m looking forward to reading the next one!

I rate it 3/5 ⭐
It's a good book for one time read. Aside from the caste system, which is quite different, everything is pretty predictable (For me atleast!). America's desisons are quite sloppy. And its obvious that Maxon is going to pick America at end..

I didn‘t really like America, Aspen, or Maxon. I listened to these as audiobooks and the narrator performed her heart out. I chuckled when I wasn‘t rolling my eyes. It‘s kind of a teen version of The Bachelor with scary rebels attacking the castle. If you like love triangles, pretty girls who think they‘re plain, can‘t make up their mind, and act rashly but are universally loved by all, then it‘s for you.

MariaW Felt the same when I read it in 2015. Very, very superficial novels, no debth whatsoever. Never understood why it was so hyped later. 🙈 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️ This was a quick & easy read. It kept my attention & it didn‘t feel like it dragged which i liked. I just feel like i have read it before. The plot/story is unoriginal in my opinion. Its a cross of the hunger games/bachelor. I envisioned the world of hunger games & chris harrison being the reporter the whole time . It left no room for my imagination to take off. It‘s like junk food, i can‘t stop reading it. Even if it‘s not that great.

I first read The Selection 8 years ago and I gave it 5🌟 then. Today I give it 3🌟. When I first read the first book of this series I adored it. Now it was entertaining enough if a little boring at times the rebels and caste system is very vague and not well built upon. However I am a sucker for the Bachelor type competition.

analuiza_martins2007 Hey, I also read the selection series, and I totally agree with you. I just finished “red queen” and I think you‘ll rly like it. It has a lot in common with the selection, related to the rebels and the casts, but it‘s way more exciting. I super recommend it✨ 2y
Lizzie2219 @analuiza_martins2007 hey I‘ve read Red Queen and I agree with you 2y
paytanmal I have to agree. Even though it was a quick & easy read and it was fast to get into the plot i feel as though the caste system was not well thought out and felt too much like hunger games. It felt like a copycat of bachelor & hunger games and didn‘t feel like there was an original piece to this book. Still enjoyed reading it. For the sole fact it was quick & fun 2y

4.5/5 🌟

Easy on the brain to read! At first I found the beginning of the story immature. The world seemed so confusing & I didnt know quite how futuristic I was supposed to be picturing...but DANG it really does pick up! The maturity comes & goes. The names in the book need a little work & the main character over thinks things, but I did not hesitate to jump into book 2! Overall a gem you should try for yourself♡

paytanmal I definitely liked the book to. It was quick & easy to read & yes easy on the brain. I just feel like there wasn‘t a whole lot of depth to the characters or the plot. it seemed to copy the hunger games and the bachelor too much in my opinion. Still will continue the series tho. Also I agree with the names! They were just super odd & not in a cool futuristic way. They just felt like they weren‘t thought out beyond the main characters 2y
idealityandme @paytanmal Yes! If I recall, book two was a hard one to read so be prepared! Haha:) The beginning and end were fine but the whole middle is a waste in my opinion. Good luck with it! The names really were strange, and the book concept isn't completely unique, but hey--it passes the time! 2y

Focus on the Author
What do you notice about the writing - the way the author wrote? (For example: Is it descriptive, persuasive? Does it include figurative language?)
The writing format of the author is very detailed and descriptive. The characters are spoken about from the point of view of the protagonist. Although the plot of the book is very formal as it speaks about royalty, the writing style isn't as formal.

Fiction: If the story's setting was in a different place, the book would definitely have a different storyline. For example, if America's family were living in the same place as Prince Maxon, America would have probably not be able to sign up for the selection because she doesn't live in a different province. If the story took time in a different time, the royal family would probably consist of different members now.

Fiction: I have been reading the book for about a week now. One of the characters that have stood out in the book to me was her mother. Her mother is very controlling of her daughter, America, and continuously asks her to sign up for the selection. She reminds me of my parents because they keep pushing me to become a doctor, when I'm not interested in medical department and would rather study something else.
