Rating: Four Stars
The Selection Series is absolutely “The Bachelor” meets “The Hunger Games” just without all the violence. I think I would’ve given it five stars if it had more action. Sure there were a few rebel attacks, but I think I wanted more. With that said, I really enjoyed The Selection and read it in 24 hours. That never happens to me!
Cass set up a good love triangle in this book (SPOILER ALERT) and I almost died when Aspen, America’s heartthrob back home, came to the castle as a soldier to win her back. The entire story is fairly light-hearted, in my opinion, which made it fun but not one I would probably pick up again. The ending also felt abrupt. It just sort of ended mid-story. Luckily, I picked up The Elite (book 2) a few days later from the public library so I didn’t have to wait too long.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves love stories and is alright reading a book that has more drama than action.
