Book Review: The Prince: A Selection Novella by Kiera Cass

The Prince: A Selection Novella (HarperTeen, 2013) by Kiera Cass is a mini-novel retelling the first days of The Selection from Prince Maxon's point of view.

"In that instant I wanted him, the crown - every last piece of this - like nothing before." The Queen: A Selection Novella (HarperTeen, 2014) by Kiera Cass is a short prequel to The Selection series.

Book Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

The Siren was the first book written by Kiera Cass, author of The Selection series. It was originally self-published, but after the author's success, was bought by HarperCollins, re-edited and re-released in January 2016. I totally devoured this book. I loved every word of it. Light yet deep, haunting but addicting and seriously page-turning. The story follows … Continue reading Book Review: The Siren by Kiera Cass

Book Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass

The Heir (2015) is the continuation of Kiera Cass's original Selection trilogy, and the first book in (what I'm guessing will be) a new trilogy about the next generation of the Illéan royal family. I cannot believe this was nearly a 350-page book, because it felt so short! I absolutely devoured it and couldn't put … Continue reading Book Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass

Book Review: The One by Kiera Cass

The One is the third book in The Selection series by Kiera Cass, following The Selection and The Elite. While I really enjoy Cass's writing style in that it's incredibly easy to read and become immersed in, I'll admit I was shocked and rather disappointed with the ending. I don't want to give anything away, but I … Continue reading Book Review: The One by Kiera Cass

Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

The Selection (2012) by Kiera Cass is a teen dystopian romance, and is pretty much as close to perfect as you can get. This novel has everything: world-building without the crutch of magic, royalty, a futuristic dystopia-lite U.S., a love triangle, tons of clean romance, and a protagonist who's a phenomenal role model. Not to mention, Cass's writing … Continue reading Book Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass
