I discovered the Selection Series by Kiera Cass while I was browsing in my iBooks some YA releases and I was curious of what was out there. I believe at the time I was knees deep in Romeo & Rimmel’s love story from the #Hashtag Series by Cambria Hebert that was my first review on this blog and I do believe I went in to pre-order #Poser that day. I did notice the very impressive cover, I mean it is lovely but as I read the extract, I decided to put in on my to read list sometimes in the future.
The funny thing is that I do not even remember buying the books, but on Sunday as I was pretty much done binge watching UnREAL again, I do not know what made me grab in iPad and look for those books. I found them already sitting there and at around 10:30 PM I started reading. Well I read the first one The Selection, and at 3 AM I could’t put it down and got into the second book straight away The Elite. I did put the iPad down at 6:30 AM only cause the battery ran out and all I had was 5% left, plus I had stuff to do and could not sleep all day!
But I can tell you that every second I had, I was reading and funny enough I finished all 3 yesterday afternoon. I cannot tell you what makes a good book review or all of these thumbs up and down, but I do believe the fact that I could not stop, should be loud and clear enough.
I even finished the Heir which is book 4 and read two of the Novellas (The Prince and The Guard)! Now I have to wait till May for book 5 which is the Crown and I cannot tell you if this one will be the last of the Series or not.
But here you have it, another dystopian future YA novel, has anyone noticed how many of those there are? Not that I want to have a massive discussion on this right now, but why does a lot of people think our future is so bleak? I realise our present isn’t fun and dandy but still… We might grow up and get over ourselves to live in a good world a la Star Trek Federation. But I would guess bleak futures make for better storytelling.
