Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass


The Selection (The Selection #1)
by Kiera Cass


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.



35 girls vying for the Princess title, only one is going to be chosen in the end.

This Cinderella meets The Bachelor in a Hunger Games type of story is just captivating!


I don’t know about you, but for once, this love triangle between Prince Maxon, America and Aspen got me giddy with delight and pleasure. I may be the last person who recently got hooked with this series and I’ve been blaming myself for not reading this book ASAP. Maxon is really swoon-worthy, I understand why most girls crave for his attention. America Singer represents the independent woman who had the qualities fit for a queen, even though she wasn’t aware of it. Aspen, oh Aspen, I feel for you, but I don’t know how to defend you. Ah, such tormented love affair.

I love everything in this book, the girls (the good, the mean girls and the flirty ones), the maids-in-waiting, the guards, the dresses, the rendezvous, the tugging of ears and so much more.. I love Kiera Cass, too! She’s gotta be my fairy godmother because she makes me feel good with her story and brings magic to my life. Yay!

Now I can’t wait to read The Elite, which surprisingly is next (as in # 1) on my TBR (I am telling you, last week, that book is number 8 on my list! LOL). I’m sorry R.L Stine, I don’t want to get Goosebumps yet this Halloween!)
