The Selection – Kiera Cass

The Selection is a 327 page book that might seem like it would take ages to finish, but it really didn’t take all that long. This is a spoiler-free flyby of The Selection by Kiera Cass.

The Selection really is the book to read if you want to get out of a reading slump, or if you’re looking for a book that you can finish in two days. I did get this book form Barnes and Noble a little bit ago, but I found that reading short books by eBook is better for me. I usually enlarge the font and turn my Kindle landscape-wise to trick myself into thinking that the book is shorter than it actually is, and it worked. This is the sort of book that you can plow through without any regrets.

For those of you that don’t know, the Selection is when a group of 35 girls live in the palace, all competing to be the next princess. The prince, Prince Maxon, then chooses who he wants to be his princess. Our main character is America Singer, and she is a Five. In this book, the caste system goes from Ones to Eights. The Ones are the royal family, and the Eights are homeless. The “good castes” are the Twos, Threes, and Fours. Five and below, you’re destined to be hungry more than once in your life.

I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars, and highly recommend that you read it.


In my eBook copy of the book, there were many parts that I highlighted because I wanted to share them with you, but I then realized that some of those are huge SPOILERS.

After reading this book, feel free to comment any parts that you found hilarious.

For those of you that have any questions about the book, by all means, ask me any questions you have. I’d be happy to answer.

Till we meet again,

  3. I may or may not read the book, but I appreciate your tip on using the Kindle reader turned just so to make your read appear to be shorter. I do this with clocks. I’m not a clock-watcher per se, but I do like turning all the clocks in the house to at least 1/2 hour faster. This way, I never feel like I’m behind. It keeps me on point. Do I know that the clocks are set fast? Of course I do!
