The Selection – Kiera Cass – REVIEW


Thirty five beautiful girls…
Thirty five beautiful rivals…

Hello! I’m back with another review! Today I’m reviewing The Selection by Kiera Cass which I received from NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Before going into this, all I knew was that it was “Hunger Games mixed with The Bachelor”. This is set in a distopian world where castes determine your life. Every time a Prince comes of age, he must seek a wife through The Selection, a reality game show were thirty five girls fight for the heart (and crown) of the young Prince.

Let me start by saying, I loved this! Was it amazing and poetic? No. Was it life changing? No. Was I hooked? YES!ย I just wanted more and more and flew through it. There were some really cute scenes which I really liked. I’d heard a lot about the main character, America, about how she was the most annoying character ever. I honestly didn’t think she was that bad, some things she did annoyed me however. The last half of the book she did get more irritating, but I could deal with it.

Fun and easy to read!

5/5 stars!

  1. I absolutely love your conclusion paragraph about why it was still worth 5 stars even though it wasn’t necessarily the most amazing writing in the world. It drives me crazy when people refuse to enjoy books that aren’t going to necessarily change the world – books are for entertainment! If they provide that, then I think they’re worth good reviews. I’m glad you liked the book so much, it’s one of my favorites. Great review! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hi Shannon, you make this series sound interesting. It’s a departure from my normal reads (dystopian & The Bacheloresque), but I do enjoy a good romance novel. I’ll have to check it out.

    • The only Dystopian I had read before this was The Hunger Games, so I know what you mean ๐Ÿ™‚ I think this series is more a romance novel than anything, with a little action in there too ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you enjoy it!
