Do you own The Selection, are you not reading, or are you borrowing it?

I, Rebecca Corin Morgan, being of sound mind and body (since when has my mind been sound? Just forget that part...) , hereby declare that I do, in fact, own the hardcover edition of The Selection by Kierra Cass. I will be participating in all group activities concerned with this book.

I'm going to try to get my hands on it (school libray for the win) but I'm so swamped with books right now that I'll be lucky to get to it! :-P And I really want to read it!

Yes, why not? Don't tell me you saw the film and that's why...


Jack Frost, Jaquelyn, Jackie:  {The empress of winter; The lonely white wolf } (elchornoboy) There are books that I will read and watch the movie if there is a movie, but if there is just like the Hunger Games books, I will not read the books.

Jonathan Terrington (thewritestuff) Just not a fan of the violence, the themes or what?

What do you think of it?


message 23: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 4 comments In between a full college load and work, I finished The Selection in less than a week which says a lot for a slow reader like myself lol!! It was AMAZING!!!!!!! :D

Becca (BeccaTheAwesomeOne) | 365 comments Mod
Will you discuss it with us?


message 25: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 4 comments I'd love to!
Where do I even begin though??! *Possibly some spoilers though!*
I thought that America was a strong heroine with a good sense of what she wanted out of life. She is also pretty in control of herself which came in handy whenever the palace was attacked by the rebels.
Also, at first, I was a little hesitant to like Prince Maxon because I thought something would work out between Aspen and America (somehow lol!). However, after meeting him that first night, I knew I had been wrong not to like him. He was so understanding and caring! He tried to make all the girls feel so special, even if he had given his heart to America. As for Aspen, I don't hate him, but I don't really like how he acted in the palace. I feel he was very inappropriate, and if he had approached America better in her room, I think I would like and respect him more.
As for a favorite outside the main characters, I love May!! She is so ridiculous!! :) She is like your everyday boy-obsessed little girl! Her letters made for good comedy in the story :)
