“Never judge a book by its cover”
This was the first thought that came out in my mind after reading the first two books of Kiera Cass’ The Selection Trilogy. To be honest, I am not the type of Bookworm who would buy a book covered with girl wearing superb gowns in purely red and blue colors. I don’t even know who Kiera Cass was until National Bookstore announced that she is coming and will be having a book signing in the Manila and Cebu. Curious, I researched her works and got kind of interested with the plot of The Selection. Of course, there were some negative reviews. I didn’t even understand why the character should be named America Singer in the first place. Weird.
Thinking that it would be cool to have a book signed by an author, I convinced my brother to line up there and have her signed the newly bought books. I wasn’t expecting him to do so but he did agree. He was more willing to line up there than go with me to an orphanage where we(a Catholic singles community) went to feed malnourished and sick kids.
Anyways, enough with all the sidelines already because I’m going to review Kiera Cass’ The Selection and The Elite.
The Selection trilogy is a dystopian young adult story set 300 years in the future that evolves on America Singer, the main protagonist of the story.
