Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals…
It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon’s love.
Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.
Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don’t know is that America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.
This is officially the fastest series I’ve ever read! I read this series in the last week of June and finished it 2 weeks later. When I first read it I was like “OMG THIS IS THE BEST SERIES EVER!!” but now I’ve had time to reflect on it my opinion is more “this was a decent series”
America Singer was an amazing independent character she might not have always done the right thing but she did what it anyway and didn’t regret it, she let nothing stand in her way, I love seeing strong female leads! I enjoyed seeing how America grew throughout the books and how her relationships differed when secrets came out. I found that Eadlyn was very similar but was more spontaneous and didn’t think about the repercussions of the things she did.
The story was simple but engaging and thats what I liked about it. I loved the tension between characters it just made it so much better. I also enjoyed reading about the romantic difficulties almost all the characters had.
I’m not going to rate this book because I thought the first 3 books were fantastic but I thought the last 2 dragged on a bit and made me not like the series as much. I feel like Eadlyn’s 2 book series was a bit unnecessary and could have been one book instead because by The Crown you knew what was going to happen, so it wasn’t as interesting.
If you haven’t read this series but have read Red Queen then I recommend this book because it’s similar.
