The Selection by Kiera Cass #1: It's like The Bachelor in a dystopian world.



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 the palace and compete for the heart of the 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.





Before thirty-five girls were chosen to compete in the Selection...

Before Aspen broke America's heart...

There was another girl in Prince Maxon's life..




Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Iléa.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

Thanks for getting this started, Jen

I thought we already had a thread, but it's not in the thread guide, oh well

I'm currently working on book 2, have you finished it already?

Wasn't so sure what to think of it at first, it's... well... very YA and I don't always click with that easily. That said, Team Maxon all the way. I like Aspen, but there's something that feels odd about him, I can't even place it

Yeah. I could never fully connect with Aspen, and I couldn't support his relationship with America since they were already in one when the story started

With Maxon though, there is progress and room for growth.

Thanks for starting the thread, Jen. Don't think this series was written for me... But I am glad you are enjoying it.
