The Selection by Kiera Cass

28
I was surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. I resisted reading it for the longest because I thought it sounded a bit "cheesey". It was recommended to me by several people and I am enjoying the storyline. It is a bit like dystopia society meets the bachelor! Entertaining is a good description.  It is just what I need right now...end of the school year equals exhaustion so this is a fun, light series that doesn't make me think too much.  

Summary from goodreads.com:
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
