Book Review: The Selection

The Selection by Kiera Cass

This book was amazing! WARNING: This is the first book in a new series! I hate when I read an amazing book only to find out it's the first in a new series which means I can't immediately read the second book! So fair warning - still, it is an excellent book with excellent character development and a fast paced plot. From page one, I was captivated and voraciously read the rest of the book!


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.
