Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

The Selection is a very popular YA novel that follows America Singer, a 17 year old girl living in a world driven by an eight tiered caste system in which ones are the royal family and eights are the homeless, poverty-stricken members of society. America is a five, the caste of artists and musicians. When the crown prince of her country comes of age, there is a competition held known as The Selection in which girls are chosen at random from the various castes for the chance to be chosen by the prince as his wife and future queen. Despite being opposed to the contest, America finds herself part of it and must navigate the confusing waters of palace life. 

The best part of the book is definitely the characters, specifically Prince Maxon. I love any book that gives me a new fictional boy to fangirl over and The Selection, definitely delivered with Maxon. He is sweet and caring and everything a girl would want her prince to be. America is a little different. While I don’t dislike her, some of the things she does and says don’t make much sense to me. She’s a bit annoying but seems to be a good person overall. 

If you like The Bachelor, you will like The Selection. The book is essentially the show set in a dystopian society. Although, when reading you don’t even really care about the society because you are too wrapped up in what is going to happen with the romance. 

I very much enjoyed this book. Fast paced and fun, it was one of those quick and easy guilty-pleasure read to which you get addicted and fly through. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something fast, fluffy, and entertaining. 

4/5 stars for entertainment.
