Selection | Kiera Cass
The first book in the captivating, #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series! Discover a breathless fairy-tale romance with swoon-worthy characters, glittering gowns, fierce intrigue, and a dystopian world that will captivate readers who loved Veronica Roth s Divergent, Ally Condie s Matched, and Lauren Oliver s Delirium.For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape a rigid caste system, 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, and competing for a crown she doesn t want. Then America meets Prince Maxon and realizes that the life she s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined."

Title of book: The Selection
Genre: young adult fiction, fantasy fiction, dystopian fiction
Author: Kiera Cass
Date started: october 1st
Date finished: October 20th
Why I choose the book: I just picked up this book from chapters and I read the back of the book, for some apparent reason, I love fantasies and romance movies and books and since the back was talking about how they got to live in a palace,compete for the heart of a prince and a crown

If you like the Bachelor this book is for you. While I‘m proud of our main character America for not making a love triangle I feel there was not much character development. This I hope will be rectified in the next book.

Genre: dystopian, young adult fiction
Started: December 15, 2019
Completed: December 17, 2019
Reason: It was recommended to me by a friend.
For many people, being entered into The Selection would be a dream come true, but not for America Singer. After being forced to leave the love of her life, and pursue the prince, in which she has no feelings for, America is crushed. But as her feelings for the prince increase, she decides who she truly loves.

Heard about this and I do kind of like the Bachelor so I found this at a sale. Darn it all, Will have to find the 2nd book. America lives in a world after WW4 where everyone is numbered according to how they rate. Ones are the Elites and Eights are the lowest of lows. America is a 5 and gets chosen to be in the selection to meet the prince to become a One if he chooses her. ☝🏼not a fan of the cover. America has more backbone than this cover!

The Selection series is the best thing that's happened to me in a while. It's like the Bachelor meets Hunger Games and I read the first three books of the series each in under 24 hours. I thought at the end of the first book you would know who the Prince chose... But nope, you have to stick it out until Book 3 (The One). There's drama, a little bit of politics, and a very strong female lead. If you are stuck in a rut, this series is for you!⁣

Kboltz Oh I was hoping I would know by book two!!! 2mo

Like the hunger games, but less danger and more sappy romance. I loved it, even though it really isn‘t all that different from the dystopian genre. Who cares. It was fun and easy and likeable. Enjoy!

Peddler410 I read it a few summers ago after it was recommended by a friend. That summer I wanted to read outside my comfort zone (mg and ya). I ended up reading the whole series. 4mo

Overall, I like the book. I‘m not a big fan of love triangles and the main plot is based around America‘s emotional turmoil over whether to choose Aspen or the Prince.

Pleasantly surprised that I still love this book! I feel like sometimes things you read when you were younger can be disappointing when you go back to them so I was very happy this wasn‘t one of those. Can‘t wait to read the next one in the series!
4/5 🌟

Not necessarily one I would have on my all time favorites shelf, but I really really liked it all the same! I‘m constantly reading books with mysterious, brooding love interests (and don‘t get me wrong I LOVE those types of love interests) but I was so pleased with what a nice guy prince Maxon was, and how actually nice and genuine the relationship between Maxon and America became!

Charityann Love the books!😊 7mo

Fun YA read about a prince that needs to select a wife out of 35 commoners that were selected in his country. It‘s a cross between a romance and dystopian novel. It didn‘t draw me in and I really don‘t care what happens in the next book which is why I rated it so-so. When my daughter was in 8th grade she LOVED it. Probably meant for that age group 😂😁

I. Loved. This. Book. I know that it is a YA title. But I will always be a teenager at heart. Cass does a wonderful job of telling a story of a compelling love triangle with the invention of a new country and giving the United States a new history. I know I am late to this party (this book was published in 2012) but still find it so great.

Can't wait to get my hands on the next book!

The pretty dress on the cover trend totally sucked me in.
This a quick YA read about 35 girls being selected for the prince to pick a wife from. Of course a love triangle is tossed in there and it has the back drop of rebel attacks and a caste system to keep things lively. I did enjoy it and I am on to the second book for as long as the kiddo stays asleep.

I tried to go from Obsidio to Circe and my brain couldn't take it .Usually I reread something old and familiar as a palate cleanser book but my new years resolution was to stop that and tackle my tbr.
So I'm reading the Selection, such an easy book to get through.

The Selection is about a group of thirty-five girls who are entered into the selection to marry the prince. America does not want to be a part of this, but eventually she questions everything she thought she wanted.
