    My favourite book and definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a dystopian read with enough romance and action to keep you reading until the wee hours of the morning. It is a fresh story that I thought had the perfect balance of everything I was looking for. I was sick of fluffy romance novels but couldn't sit through another "the world is ending, lets save it". It took both the things I had grown tired of and added an interesting spin. There is a sort of love triangle, which was the only thing that got to me, but its ok, because there is an obvious winner. Oh and last thing- the setting. Cass uses just enough description to put me into her beautiful world and see the wonderful parties without overdoing it. So pretty much you need to read this. now. Only downfall - the last book comes out May 6, its just too long to wait!

    My Review: American Singer lives in a world where rankings rule. The higher your ranking, the poorer you are, and the less you contribute to society. For America, she and her family are 5’s, and life is hard, barely having enough food or money to support the family. However, their lives just might change forever. 35 girls are in competition with each other to win the heart of Prince Maxon and wear the crown. For America, the Selection is a nightmare, how can she possibly love someone like Maxon? Especially when her heart is committed to someone else? All right, so I have some mixed feelings about this book. First off, I want to say that I always try my best to never compares books. But sometimes those thoughts creep up and there’s nothing you can do to stop them. All I could think about during the first few chapters of this book was how it echoed Amiee Carter’s Pawn. I was going to list a few similarities, but I decided against that. I have the 50 page rule, if I do not like the book within 50 pages, I move on. But thank goodness I gave it a try! While those similarities were hard to get past, and mind kept going back to Pawn, the rest of the book was amazing! The farther in the book the less those similarities kind of faded a little so I was able to get into the book much better. During the last 5 or so chapters, I had a hard time putting the book down, I had to see what would happen next. I loved the Bachelor aspect of the book, and it was just a very good read. However, there was something that annoyed me to now end, and reading other reviews of this book, I know I’m not alone. The names. The names in this book drive me batty! While some are not too bad like Sylvia, America, Celeste. Others just made my skin crawl when I read them, they were a little on the silly side like New Asia, Amberly, and Sosie to name a few. Something else that bothered me was the use of “whisper-yelled” I thought when it was used, it was again on the silly side. Overall though, the book was really a good read, I already have the 2nd book in the series waiting for me to read, and I’m excited to so. I’m rooting for America and Maxon to fall in love! I think America is too good for Aspen, I think he’s just playing games with her. Positive Elements: America is a strong young woman. Negative Elements: America’s mother is so high strung, and can come off rude on occasion. She seems to want nothing more in life than to run America’s life, and it seems that no matter what she and her family have it never is enough. There were a few swear words in the book like hell and dam*. Spiritual Elements: During one of the rebel attacks some of the Selected were praying. Other Thoughts: This really was a good read, and can’t wait to see what is in store for America.

    I honestly wasn't expecting much from this book. It was one of those that I picked up and put down or decided not to read on several occasions. For whatever reason this time I decided to give it a try and I'm very glad I did. I sped through it, the writing and the story were both engaging and compelling. Now it's 2.26am and I'm done reading it and am actually taking the time to write this before I go to bed. It's been awhile since I had this reaction to a book, I am beyond surprised and thoroughly pleased. I'll probably pick up the rest in the series after I get some sleep, if I do it now I probably won't sleep at all tonight. Definitely worth a read.

    I loved this book! It's one of those books that you pick up and don't put down until you've finished it. I find that this is a great futuristic utopia, if you could call it that. If you are a fan of books like Divergent or the Hunger Games, this is a must read. I hope I have convinced you to read this book because you will love It!

    I really would not qualify this as a dystopian YA romance. It is definitely long on romance and short on the dystopia. Perhaps the second book will give more detail on why things are as they are and what the rebels are really trying to accomplish. The love triangle is quite well done. I like both young men and I see why America is torn. I think she could influence idealistic Prince Maxon into truly helping the country improve and abolish that silly caste system. However, I do think we have that in our country today. It is just not that formalized and strict. Anyone who enjoys a Cinderella romance that just happens to be set in a vaguely medieval future should enjoy this. If you are into serious dystopian novels with lots of world building then you might want to give this a pass. As for me, I enjoyed it because I still like fairy tales.
