The Selection Series:
- The Selection
- The Elite
- The One
I really should be embarrassed about the time it took me to read all three of these books, but I am not. Thanks to Kiera Cass I am actually moving towards my 2015 reading goal. When I was invited to read the first book of the The Selection Series I was really excited. The moment I picked it up I was hooked.
I immediately bought the second book The Elite and ran through that one and grudgingly had to wait five days before the third book The One was released! Guess what, I read The One just as fast. I love reading Young Adult literature. There is something fun about it, relaxing and easy. Makes reading fun. The way it should!
The Selection Series was set 300 years in the future. I am not a "in the future" kind of reader but that is what was great about these books, it wasn't too over the top. Kiera Cass is a great writer and let's us into the world of the castes of Iliea. I felt myself feeling like this series was The Bachelor with a mix of The Hunger Games. Hey, I like both of those so that must be why I was hooked.
America is the main character in the first two books and we see her make her way through the selection but also see her blossom into a great woman who wants to make changes in her kingdom even before she is in control.
So, who should read these books? Anyone who wants a great summer beach read. Seriously, these will keep you totally in vacation mode all summer long, although it will not take you all summer to read these. I am so ready for book four! Bring it Kiera!
I have also heard that there is a movie in the works, once you read about the beautiful dresses in this book you will probably be just as excited to see the fashion on the big screen!
I am proud to say that my goal of 5 books in 2015 is up to 3! Woohoo! Look, I know that goal is tiny but things are busy! Ha!
Have you read any of The Selection Series?
