The Selection (Kiera Cass) Book Reviews

It’s umm… certainly interestingThe main character is super annoying and things get extremely cringy often. Also I’m not a big fan of the writing style but it’s super entertaining and fun to make fun of so I’d give it like 4 stars.Score: 4/5

Best Series EverThis book is sooo good!! Highly recommend! The whole series is amazing and a very quick read if you have time on your hands. The only thing I would change about the series is they are TOO short. I would have liked them to be a little longer but they are perfect otherwise. I have read this series a trillion times and find more things to love about it each time!! I am also sooo excited for the Netflix movie being made on it!! Make sure to read the books first!! #teammaxonforever.Score: 5/5

Not 100% originalIt really reminded me of the hunger games, and some sections sounded more like 5th grade me trying to describe and using way too many adjectives. Kinda cheesy. It’s a good story overall though..Score: 4/5

Beautifully writtenIt’s been hard to come across great books and with quarantine still here it’s even harder to find something that captures my interest, but this series does just that. The brilliant romance between America, Maxon, and Aspen is one that causes you to feel butterflies in your stomach and your eyes to sweat salty tears. Each chapter leaves you wanting more and when I finished the first one I had to read the rest. The Selection gives you a whirlwind of emotions that can only be satisfied by reading the entire series. If you’re looking for a book or series that will keep you entertained then I highly recommend this one..Score: 5/5

Really goodThe selection was suspenseful and humorous, withered a,axing characters. My favorite characters were probably America, Maxon and (if you can believe it,) Celest. Their personalities were unique and very powerful. America was funny and courageous, but but still had many feelings. Maxon was funny and shy, and probably my favorite character. Celest was sassy, commanding, and was not afraid to hurt someone to get what she wanted. Those types of characters add a lot to the story. I’m definitely rooting for America and Maxon. This was an amazing story..Score: 4/5

Oddly enjoyableI was aware while reading this book that if wasn't very good. The dialogue was often corny, and the plot was incredibly predictable. However, I became very attached to the characters, and my inner thirteen-year-old-who-wants-to-be-a-princess was thriving. This is a guilty pleasure book for every girl that has delusions of grandeur.Score: 5/5

The Bachelor: Dystopian EditionWhile by no means a literary masterpiece, The Selection is a highly entertaining and addicting read. If I were to be critical, I might have a problem with the iffy world building and cliche characters. The only thing that I had a problem with was America Singer, whose name is almost as annoying as she is. Don’t get me wrong, she’s the typical nice MC...but incredibly indecisive in everything. Instead of creating tension, she just comes across as annoying. She’s also hypocritical in the love triangle, and her frequent breakdowns made it hard to empathize when it really mattered (mostly Book 2). Overall, it was a really entertaining series that I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a fun read..Score: 4/5

So. Good.I read all 5 books in 5 days and I have no regrets. All the tears and stress were 100% worth it. I would do anything just to have this experience again for the first time. From the first page you are hooked and cannot stop reading! Perfect mix of romance and dystopia. I loved every second of this story..Score: 5/5

Just yesIf your a hopeless romantic who loves distopian stories than this is your book. Classic love tropes, a bit of the bachelor, and just a tad distopian. This is one of the first books I’ve read for fun in years and it was worth staying up until 4am to finish..Score: 5/5

The SelectionI LOVE THIS BOOK and the series! I couldn’t put it down. It is a well written book and you really do love all the characters (minus a few) I do know it is worth the read. At first I was a little iffy because I didn’t think I would like all that princess stuff, but it is not at all what you think! It’s unpredictable and shocking. It has some violence however with the southern rebels and some injuries and fights, and it has a lot of romance. I love it so much. The whole series is fantastic. Worth the read. Trust. Me..Score: 5/5

Pretty good series.So I’ve read the 3 books in this series about America and it was a pretty good story. I do wish the writing was stronger. There are a lot of unanswered questions in the series and I feel like the author could have done more when explaining/describing things. Pretty disappointed the author didn’t continue America’s story with the 4th and 5th book. Overall it’s a good read but that’s about it..Score: 3/5

A fun, fluffy YA dystopian romance that will have you hooked.I didn’t think I was going to like this book, but I did! The Selection takes place in a futuristic version of the United States, where a royal family rules and the citizens are separated by a harsh caste system. Every time a male heir comes of age, the royal family holds a Selection- a competition in which thirty-five girls from across the country compete for the throne. America Singer has always been cynical about the Selection. But when she’s drafted for the competition, she reluctantly agrees to join. As she fights for the heart of a prince she doesn’t even know, America will discover a whole new world within the palace walls. The plot of The Selection can feel tropey and predictable at times (love triangles and not-like-other-girls are the most common ones here) but I definitely think The Selection is worth reading. I would like to warn, however, that the fourth and fifth books are not as great as the first three. But overall, this series is super addictive and bingeable!.Score: 4/5

Favorite series of all time!Team Prince Maxon all the way!! This book was so incredibly amazing and one of my favorite series ever!.Score: 5/5

I very good series to read.The books in this series were all page turners and had me completely wrapped up in Maxon’s and America’s relationship! I loved Aspen in the beginning, but I was rooting for Maxon the whole time! Sooo good! I have read books that have more of a mature or rather poetic type of writing, which I prefer, but this series is definitely on my list of favorites. I encourage you to read it!.Score: 5/5

Cute bookEven though this book was the bachelor and cheesy, it was honestly super cute! I really enjoyed the cuteness and love. I don’t read gushy types of books, but this was an exception. A few action moments but mostly competition, poor girls. But I’ve seen this book since elementary school and I finally read it in college! Definitely a younger reader book, but all over cute..Score: 4/5

BEST BOOK EVERRR ♥️I love this book so much i would give my left kidney to read for the first time again.Score: 5/5

Pretty badHonestly it was one of the worst books I've ever read. It was a copy of the hunger games with elements of the bachelor and if you think that sounds bad, imagine it being 10 times worse. The writing is very very immature. If you are over 13 years old you're too old for this book. It's just a book that's been done before. You can't even call it a complete book, it is written like a tv show; the first book is only a small part of the story which doesn't get concluded at all until the third book. If you enjoy easy books that are predictable, and have been done way too many times, this is the book for you. This is just my opinion though, if you disagree that's fine..Score: 3/5
