The Selection series - Kiera Cass (The Selection #1-4)

Okay, to be honest, I fell in love with The Selection and it's wittiness. The main reason why is because America Singer was a strong and beautiful character that showed the world she did not need a man to define her. Then, here comes Aspen Leger. Older, hotter, guy that America is absolutely in love with. The problem why they cannot show off their relationship off to the world is because Aspen is a caste lower than America.

However, America's family, does not have a lot of money and then her mother hears about Prince Maxon and how he is looking for 35 eligible girls for The Selection. So, my thought was, wow this seems like show, The Bachelor/Bachelorette. I was not wrong and my theory is proven with the most recent release, The Heir.

Follow Kiera Cass as she tells the story of America Singer and how she ends up winning a prince's heart and the country's as well.

Synopsis for The Selection:

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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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.

Synopsis for The Elite:

The Selection began with thirty-five girls.
Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

Synopsis for The One:

The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

Synopsis for The Heir:

Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.

My thoughts on the upcoming 5th book:

Um Cass should have kept it at the 3rd or 4th book but no, she wants the 5th book and the main character in this is not only bratty but she is rude and especially if nothing goes her way, she throws a tantrum. Something in the 4th book is absolutely heartbreaking but I hope it does get better by the 5th.

I guess you can kind of say that I am kind of excited but also slightly bored with the whole ordeal.

XOXO fellow readers. Next up, The Strange Maid by Tessa Gratton and The Dead List by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
