With quarantine and social distancing in full effect, you may be finding yourself having plenty of extra time these days. While Netflix, undoubtedly, serves us well with a large variety of shows and movies, you may find yourself stuck in a bit of a rut, especially if you have already binged all of your favorites. The solution? A good book, of course.
But not just any book. New York Times Bestselling Author Kiera Cass' enthralling trilogy, The Selection, will sweep you away to a world where extravagant gowns, a large palace, and a charming prince are the norm. The dynamic main character America Singer is only 17 years old when her whole life is turned upside down. America lives in Illéa, a powerful country set in a future North America with a dystopian society, a strict caste system, and a reigning monarchy.
America is from a lower caste; however, after entering a competition, similar to that of the Bachelor, to win the heart of the charming Prince Maxon, America finds herself stuck in an enormous palace living a life completely different from anything she has ever known. Add a sticky love triangle with America's first love, Aspen, into the mix, and you have yourself an exciting read to spice up what you thought was going to be just another dreary day in quarantine.
Would you believe me when I say that it gets even better? That's right. That is only the story of the first book in the series. Follow along with America's journey of love and love lost in the remaining two books.
It doesn't stop there. In addition to Cass' three books in The Selection series, Cass has supplied us with four novellas that tell us pieces of the story from the perspective of other characters besides America. Getting the story from other perspectives rounds out the story and allows you to truly get into the mind of the other characters who were pivotal to the series.
All done? Not so fast. Two more books, The Heir and The Crown, are also available. After becoming attached to the never-dull character of America Singer, get whisked away further into the future to a time when America Singer is no longer a teenager…but a mother. Trust me when I say you will read this series so fast, you won't know what hit you.
I dipped it in the KFC recipe. RT@stephanie_ante: Why is your series so addicting? 😄😄😄 http://t.co/1OiC6AE2nj— Kiera Cass (@Kiera Cass)1392742273.0
