In a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels the Selection is the chance of a lifetime: to compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon's ear. But for America Singer it means turning her back on her secret love, and leaving home for a prize she doesn't want.
Then America meets Maxon and all her plans start to crumble. Can the life she's always dreamed of compare to a future she never imagined?
Firstly I feel that it is imperative that we all look at the cover of The Selection and admire that absolute prettiness of the dress. Doesn’t it make you want to reach into the cover and take it? I know that how I feel 🙂
The Selection manages to somehow be predictable goodness that is extremely addictive. This is a series I read in one day so I feel I know what I am talking about!
I did think that there was similarities to the Hunger Games. But that might have been more to do with the comparison between the districts in the hunger games and the caste system here. Each are limited to what they can do based on where they were born in the system. But this is the only comparison I can really make.
I love the romance, the small love triangle, the competition, the other girls in the selection. I loved America, and how she refused to change for the competition, and how Maxon was completely different from my expectations.
Also how can you not like a story, when you are hooked from page one?! Seriously go read, it may surprise you…
