The Selection Series by Kiera Cass
KOURTNEY: “Right now I am currently reading the Selection series. I am only on book #3, The One, and I am loving it. My sister recommended the series to me, and at first I was a little hesitant. She told me it was a mix between The Hunger Games and ABC’s The Bachelor. I love both of those so I decided to give the book a chance and I love it! I would definitely recommend this 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.
