“The Selection” by Kiera Cass


Reading The Selection by Kiera Cass felt like a guilty pleasure. It was one of those must-read-right-now books that I started and finished within 24 hours. But when I described the plot to my husband and son they both looked at me like I was crazy. “Why do girls read stuff like that?” my ten-year-old asked.

Duh! Because it’s awesome!

The Selection is Cinderella meets The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor. In a future where democracy is gone, a redheaded teenager named America Singer is chosen to represent her province in The Selection, a reality competition to choose who will become the next princess. The problem is, America is already in love with a boy back home and Prince Maxon is so charming that he leaves America feeling very confused. Does she want to be in the competition at all–and if so, does she want to win?

This is definitely a book geared towards a female audience. Its New York Times best seller status is proof of girl power everywhere. I enjoyed The Selection immensely, and will definitely read the other books in the series.

  1. About half of my friends love the story building in this while the other has complained about the writing. I’m not sure what group I’ll fall under, but I still can’t wait to pick this up. The covers in this series are just too pretty.
