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.

Amazing. This genre is very new to me but this book is amazing! I love the growth of the characters throughout the book! Overall this book is amazing!

Just yes. If 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.

Amaze. I loved it I stayed up all night reading it one of best love stories ever I swooned and sighed a lot I recommend this to anyone who loves a good love triangle !!!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Loved it!!. I loved this book so much! I thought is was going to be like any other Royalty book but it was really interesting reading about the different groups of people and following their daily lives in the castle.

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!

It’s umm… certainly interesting. The 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

Not 100% original. It 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.

Perfect fairytale book for older audiences. This book was very well written with some likable characters. I could not put the book down until if finished it.

Liked it. I thought it was a typical dystopian but just with a weird name. Really America that’s the most stupid name ever liked the book hated the name

Hunger games meets the Bachelor. Overall well written. It was a bit difficult to relate to the characters. I felt myself longing for more drama besides the characteristic mean girl

THE ULTIMATE. Fun, fast and easy to read. Easily the start of my FAVORITE SERIES OF ALL TIME!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. this was the first book that got me HOOKED. i finished the whole series in a week and i hated reading until i found this. PLEASE PLEASE recommended this to people bc no one i know has read it. it’s so amazing i really hope they make a movie. also if you know any similar books to this one lmk!!!

AMAZING!. I’m not a big reader and I finished this book in one day it was that hard to put down. If it wasn’t midnight I’d start the 2nd book right away but I’m afraid I won’t be able to put that down either!

The Selection. I 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.

Really good book! Would definitely recommend this to my friends❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. It was just amazing in every way! The characters the storyline… everything!

OH YEAH!. I love this book so much!💕

Beautifully written. It’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.

♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️. I loved the book so much my reading leave is low but the book level is a perfect fit. This book is non stop reading my teacher had to take my book away but I just love this book so so so so so so much!!♥️♥️♥️♥️

LOVE. I love this book soooo much, i’ve read it a while ago and still to this day can’t stop reading it. It is one of the truest romance stories i’ve read in a long time. i hope super badly that there will be movies!! I have told all my friends to read this series!! Maxon hands down is my favorite book character ever!

Best series I have ever read!!!!. This is my third time reading this book series and I still am absolutely obsessed

5 stars. before you read the rest of this review BUY THIS BOOK trust me you won’t regret it this book has everything you would want in a romance yet somehow there’s still fantasy! i normally won’t read fantasy of any kind but kiera has changed that opinion and now i’m more open to reading fantasy books/novels. the characters were so fun and interesting. mini spoiler ahead! i loved how this book was set in the future! if you love a cozy little romance/fantasy novel this is the book for you. this series is a little challenging to get into but by the fourth chapter i was intrigued. the great thing about this series is the fact that there are so many books in the series so if you want more there is a good four books after this one. (plus a novella) i hope you read this book and enjoy as much as i did!

FAVORITE BOOK ALERT. I adore this book! I have read it, digitally and on paper, a total of 25 times, with many more to come. This story of romance and confusion and heartbreak is touching, funny, sweet, and nothing short of amazing. This book holds the highest of recommendations from me. It has truly changed my life. I will never forget this tale, nor will I ever stop loving it. Thank you, Kiera Cass, for making this masterpiece.

Different type of story. Something unique and realistic to follow

The Selection. I LOVED THIS BOOK. You are an amazing author and I can’t wait to read the other books of the series

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!

Just so good. This book is so amazing!! I bought it from my school library thinking oh it’s dystopian and the story sounds pretty good, and i absolutely loved it!! I would read this book a hundred times more!! I would 100% recommend if you like romance, and dystopian!! this has become my favorite series now!!

SO GOOD!!!!!!!!. This book is amazing and I am so glad I found this series… one of my favorite books yet! It is a very captivating book and I was intrigued just in the first chapter. I have been looking for a great series, and I am so ecstatic I found it. Beautiful romance book and had me routing for Maxon and America the entire time! Loved it and other books are just as amazing as well! Would def recommend… enjoy!!!!!!

Amazing!. I love this book. Kiera is a wonderful storyteller. Now I have to go get all of her other books;)

5 Stars!!!. Best book on the entire planet!!

Really good. The 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.

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.

The selection 5 stars!. This was the book series that I needed, after 3 years of finishing it I’m fighting not going back to re read the selection. I thought this was going to be a retale of another story like a Cinderella story. Thank goodness it wasn’t, but this genre made me go read “The Kiss Of Deception” by Mary E. Pearson, (which was amazing! You should read it after this series) and just starting the “Shatter Me” series by Tahereh Mafi. This Sci-fi, dystopian thing is very interesting, so anyone who likes that stuff should read this book, and the series.

i love this book. this book and the entire series following has been the most enjoyable to read. 100% recommend for everyone who loves romance with a good plot!

😌😌. Loved this book! Couldn’t put it down

Amazing Book. I’ve read this book a countless number of times and I love it more each time.

The selection. This book is one of the best. I know it’s old, and all and I’m behind. But, this is one of the best romance dystopian books. It’s a page turner.

Best book ever!!!!. Oh my god… this book was incredible I finished it all in one day it was so amazing!!! I loved it I can’t wait to read the rest I don’t want it to end!!!

The selection series. Such a good book and got so attached to the wonderful writing and series. I continued to read and it's just a really good book series.

The best book ever. It’s my favorite book, I have it at my library but anyway I’m writing this because you really need this book

Very enjoyable series. I’m actually very excited to find out what happens with America next!!!

oddly enjoyable. I 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

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

Best Series Ever. This 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

Favorite Read. This is one of my absolute favorites to pull out again and again.

Amazing. This book is legit amazing

The Bachelor: Dystopian Edition. While 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.

Best book ever. This is one of the best books I own you will love it if you love the romance /thriller novels I give it 👍👍.

So good!!!!. this book and the whole series is amazing! one of my favorite books for sure

Not gonna bother reading.... Was on my "must-read-book" list, however the authors online "high school drama" with a customer, made me decide I would not support that behaviour. Too bad, was interested in reading before that unpleasant incident...

God I love this!. If you're hesitant to read this -- don't be! Start immediately!!

Best Book ever. Cant wait to read the next book !!!!!!!!!!

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

Wow! Perfect!. This book is now my favourite book! Please read it you will not be desappinted!

Pretty bad. Honestly 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.

Best book!🤩. This book is so awesome!! I loved it. I couldn’t put it down for three days straight!! If you like the hunger games or divergent this is the series for you!!

The Selection. Kiera Cass' book 'The Selection' is a great boom with an interesting plot, it draws you in from the first page with a hidden charming quality. A truly addictive book that is impossible to put down. Even though it gives you a slight sensation of déjà vu at parts this book is wells worth the read.

😍😍. All I can say is I read it 4 times and I cannot still put it down its a addition

Amazing. This book is amazing! I literally loved it so much. This is the first book to the series which was also amazing! Read this! You will not be disappointed! 💕

AMAZING!. Amaaaaaazing book! Finished in 7 hours! Can't wait for the second!

LOVED IT!!!!. This is one of the best books I’ve ever read!!!!

I love This book!!. MY FAV BOOK EVER! This book is intriguing, shocking, amazing, and romantic! I love the relationship between the characters( not every character) counting down the days till the Elite comes out!!

Very entertaining. Interesting plot, the action was consistent and kept me wanting to read more. Can't wait for book 2!

Lovin’ It. I love it soooooo much. The author is so creative no doubt! XD

5stars. Awesome books

the selection. this is such amazing book i just finished the book in 3 hours just sitting and reading :)

The Bachelor Vs. The Hunger Games. This book mixes elements from both the "Hunger Games" book series & the television series "the Bachelor." It's an easy & good read. The ending left me wanting more. However, at times, American's love life is a little frustrating from a reader's perspective.

The selection. This book when I first read the back seemed tacky and childish. Boy was I wrong. Kierra cass shows us the hardships of love while still adding that fairy tale magic. She shows the conflicts of young love and that we can't always have everything we want. Even the ones who seem most happy aren't as lucky as they seem. This book is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a fairy tale mixed with reality.

Wow!!!. Loved it in two days....yes that awesome....onto book two....

Agh! Amazing. This book is soo great! I loved it so much!!! I couldn't stand the sudden ending though. But luckily I have quite a selection of iTunes cards so I can buy the Elite!! See what I did there? The selection- a selection? Haha great book, I would give it 10 stars if I could :-)

A-MA-ZING!!!!!! . I loved this book!!! It was AWESAMAZING!!! Really well written, and a unique idea!!! :D You also sound like a really cool lady! I actually read all of your 'Acknowledgements'!!! Which I seriously never do! Lol SOOOOOOOO glad I read this!!! I can't wait for the second book! Please write fast! ;D ~Jen ;)

Awesome. Amazing book can't wait to read the elite

Best book ever!. I have read it so many times I can't even count! Incredible story, will keep you wanting more!

Amazing. I loved this book so much that I believe I’ve read it at least 5 times, author is very creative, can not complain This is the kinda book you can not put down and had proved to be worth staying up until 3am to finish, would love to read more by the author
