The Selection Series - Book Review

The Selection Series:
  • The Selection
  • The Elite
  • The One


The Selection Series - Book Review.  The Selection Series by Kiera Cass, Kiera Cass Author, The One, The Elite

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!

My review:  

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?
