Review: THE SELECTION by Kiera Cass

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

I went into this book not expecting much. I'd heard it compared to the TV show The Bachelor, which I'm a fan of, but that comparison made the book sound superficial. I wasn't really interested in it, but after having heard rave reviews from many friends, I finally decided to give it a chance. And I was blown away by how much I loved it. 

The Selection is by no means a great work of literature or masterly written, but it is an extremely entertaining and fun read. I found myself rooting for the characters all throughout the book. There were unexpected scene changes and events that occurred, and I was so happy with every progression of the story. Honestly, I was giddy while reading this book. 

If you are unaware, The Selection takes place in a futuristic version of the United States, and it is about Prince Maxon's search for a wife. He holds an event called the Selection, where thirty-five girls from across the country come to the palace to "date" Prince Maxon. The story follows a girl by the name of America as she is chosen to be one of the Selected. 

This book was so fun to read, and that is the primary reason why I rated it so high. I can't wait to see where this series takes me.
