Hey all!

I was just wondering if anyone has read The Selection Series by Kiera Cass!

I have to admit I am obsessed!!

It is a book set in the USA in the future. The country is now called Illeá, is under a monarchy and the citizens are categorized by a caste system.

The prince, Maxon has just turned 18 and the fist book focuses on his Selection - where teen girls from all over the country move into the palace to compete with 34 other girls for Maxon's heart and the crown.

It is a 'chick-flick' but is such a wonderful, cute and fairy-tale story

I've been thinking about reading those books! I have to admit, I saw the book in the bookstore the other day and I thought it was going to be a clone of The Hunger Games.

Oh no!!!
It is completely different - the only similar element is competition. But it is not a 'to the death' competition like the hunger games!!

Please read it!! You will love it!!

I've read the series and recently bought The Heir, however a lot of reviews said it (The Heir) was quite bad. Have you read it? If so, what did you think?

I read The Heir in two days haha

I had a feeling the story was going to be different than America's (just like everyone's life is vastly different from his/her parents).

Don't want to post any spoilers or whatever.. but I am NOT happy with how the book ended
Can't wait for the next one!

I would be down for a book club despite the fact that I'd probably never get it done on time.

I picked up a copy of The Selection at the library but am not reading it yet; my mom is while I make some attempt on summer reading. However, it's been pretty scarce at our libraries and bookstores so I'm hoping it's worth the hunt.

Y'all.  I saw this thread and almost peed my pants.  THE SELECTION SERIES IS SO GOOD.  If you're contemplating reading them DO IT.  They're all fantastic.  Kiera Cass (the author) is also awesome to follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Tumblr.  JUST READ THEM READ ALL OF THEM THEY'RE SO GOOD YOU CAN THANK ME LATER

Yeah... I read the first one and liked it, then I bought the second one the day it came out and I realised that it wasn't worth my time.
The storyline speaks of "rebel violence" and "looming threats", but where? It's like the author added it in as an afterthought just to justify this dystopian setting but then why put it in the blurb and make it seem like a huge problem when nothing about that even happens until, what like 3 quarters in?
That aside, the main problem I have with it is that the main character was super annoying and whiny, deciding she loves one guy until he goes and does Bachelor stuff (like dates with other girls, that is) and then she gets angry and then goes back to the other guy. And then the next page she decides to love the first one again, after getting all emotional with the second guy. And this happened over literally 2 page spreads that I couldn't believe what I was reading while I was reading.
