Welcome back, owlnerds. Another book series done!! I started this series in May of 2017 and finally finished it March of 2019.
The Selection series by Kiera Cass is about a girl named America Singer who gets selected to be part of a selection. A selection is 35 girls from each caste is entered into a competition to win the prince’s hand in marriage.
Book 1: The Selection
Rating: Five Stars
This book cracked me up. The plot line is hilarious because when you sent girls to compete against anything really. Things can get pretty interesting. Maxon and America can relate so much to people I know in real life. When America talks with Maxon, I can see myself reacting the same ways she does to him. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
Book 2: The Elite
Rating: Four Stars
Review: N/A I am honestly confused because I can’t find my review anywhere. 😦
Rating: Three Stars
Same thing!! I am honestly confused because I can’t find my review anywhere. 😦
Book 4: The Heir
Review: My rating is a 3.9. I actually like this book more the original series. The romance and connection Eadlyn and Kile is basically copy of Aspen and America and hate that. Why? I just don’t understand it. Still waiting for more Hale scenes, just saying.
Also it’s no surprise that destroying the caste would make a worst problem than having castes. Maybe the ending was bit overwhelming of course, it’s no surprise since the Elite’s ending was too far fetch as well. I will probably read The Crown so that go an overall book series.
Book 5: The Crown
Review: Another 3.9 stars. I was going to give this book a full four stars but honestly the first plot twist caught me off guard and really feel like was forced or the author just did it to please her fans. Why? I don’t understand.
Overall rating of the series: 3.9
Lets begin. I loved the first book. A dystopian young adult that isn’t the Hunger Games, point taken. The characters related to people, I know in real life. Then as the book went down the liking of the series went down slowly. The “love triangle” between Maxon and Aspen was a bit much. America indecisive for both of them. Then the last two books are about America’s oldest daughter. I actually enjoyed this books more the original series minus the sodomite couple in the last book. I don’t know if this is true or not but it felt thought the author was pressured into represent the sodomite community. Either way, the couple didn’t have purpose at all really. The choose that Eadyln picked makes no sense. She doesn’t really she has feeling for him until the last three chapters of the book. She is so focused on Kile who basically another Aspen that she is clueless of who to choose. I am like what? I really feel like the book was rushed. This is my opinion would not consider this book series clean. Its clean that most books today. In the romance, they are mentions of kissing on lips, cheek, and hands. There is some scenes that possible making out but that in no detail. I actually not sure what the scenes were fully about, but I would lean in that direction. There is some mention of cursing. Overall the series was alright, not my favorite. Recommended for 15+.
🙂 Thanks for reading!!
