The Selection by Kiera Cass- Book Review

Hello Everyone!
  So today I'm here with another book review and well this time I'm actually so happy to sit and write about this book so I'm guessing as you can tell I loved this book but more onto that below in the post.
  First of all I just want to say I've had this book for a few years now and have only just picked it up as I really didn't think I would get on with the story line as it's not a book I would normally read. This book is about a girl called America who signs herself up for 'The Selection' which is a competition where girls go against each other to become the wife of the prince. I loved the concept of this book but because I mainly read contemporary I didn't think I would enjoy this book as much as I actually did.
   When I started this book I was hooked and I mean hooked I needed to know what was happening on each page and I couldn't stop. At the beginning of the story I didn't really get along with America as I found her quite needy at the beginning of the story with her family and love issues but throughout the story I literally fell in love with her character as she was so appreciative and she saw the good in every girl she was in the selection with and never took anything for granted whilst she was in the palace. Maxon the prince was such an adoring character as he was so delightful to read about as he was so loving and kind and he was so oblivious to his power as he just wants to find a wife and I just felt for him and wanted the best for him.
  I loved how the story was about the palace as I was so involved in the story I loved imagining the palace and all the fancy rooms, food and the princess dresses. I just adored this story as I was so in awe of any of the girls in the selection as they were living the life of luxury and I would love to see how it would feel.
  A lot of things happened throughout this story, The relationships between the girls and Maxon, The back stories of all the girls and the events which happen to the Royal family with the power they have and how people are so bitter about them- I just loved seeing that side of the story too and seeing the situation unfold. I loved the writing style of Kiera Cass as I just felt like I was in the story and I was seeing everything from my eyes I really did love this story. I would recommend this story to anyone even if this isn't your kind of book as it isn't mine but I LOVED it! I would say the beginning is very slow but if you power through it you get addicted to the story and your just so engrossed in it you see the pages fly by and your at the end of the story. I'm so looking forward to reading the next few books in the series bring them on!!
Have you read this book?
