The Selection and subsequent novels are set in a dystopian universe. Set after the 4th World War and the demise and the United States as we know it today. However one of the focuses of the book is everyone has a specific class they are in (the books call them castes) that gives you almost an old world feel.
I read all three books (there is a fourth book but has a spinoff vibe) in the span of a week…..don’t tell my husband. I was able to get lost in the world of the selection and Following America and Maxon as they learn who they truly are and where they fit in the world. We watch them find their first loves, a little heart break all while fending off attacks on their homestead.
I’m trying to stay spoiler free, but all that I can say is I am a sucker for love stories and I found myself routing for different people at different times, and who doesn’t love love triangles and the possibility of becoming a princess??
Ultimately I would recommend this series to most teens/young adults. I may be in my late 20s but I will always be a young adult.
You can find the series in you local books store or for the Kindle or nook.
Let me start by saying. I got this trio of books for 99 cents on amazon.
That being said, it really wasn’t a bad read. Decent storyline, some nice plot twists, and who wouldn’t want to be a half girl half dragon which is my best description of Myla the main character without giving away too much.
The series follows the story of Myla through her first love, finding through truth about her family and her overall kicking some A….. butt.
My personal opinion I think certain parts of the story were overly explained and then there were time jumps between the books that left you wondering, what in the world happened in between. I also didn’t care for the progression through discovering love, because we’ll I’m a sucker for a good love story. But there were some suprise I didn’t see coming and there were daring rescues and killing of evil that satisfied my thirst for enjoyment. I’m also totally jealous that Mula has a dragon tail… where can I get one??
Anywho that is my first book review without having to scream spoiler alert.
I would recommend reading if you bought at the price I did.
Hey everyone or no one. Not sure if anyone will read this or return more than once to read but at least I will have something to do while my husband works nights.
Most of the books I will review will be teen/ young adult, fantasy and paranormal romance. I also will read the ocassional sappy story too.
Some reviews will be short and sweet and some will be a mile long, often times it will depend on how awake I am after finishing a book.
Any suggestions of books for me to read and review give me a shout out.
Lots of Love
