Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Saturday, December 21, 2013
Why I picked up this book:
I've heard a lot of buzz about this book in various YA circles, and read that The CW was even picking it up as a pilot series. Beautiful dresses, a competition, and a post apocalyptic world--what isn't to love? I've been on a slump when it comes to Hunger Games-esque stories, and was craving one that didn't end in a huge flop. So I gave this book a try, and was mildly surprised.

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. (Goodreads)
