Café Fashionista Book Club debuted in January, we have conquered romance via Jennifer E. Smith’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight; paranormalcy via Meg Cabot’s Abandon; and dance via Sophie Flack’s Bunheads. Today we begin tackling something slightly different…The Selection by Kiera Cass.
The Selection the first title in a Trilogy that blends the worlds of dystopia (a la Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games) and reality television (specifically, The Bachelor / The Bachelorette).
As always, the rules remain the same…Throughout the month, you can come back to this original posting, and Discuss the current book club selection in the Comments section, sharing your thoughts on a character you love (or love to hate), memorable quotes or scenes in the book, and the like. Everything is very informal; but I think that it will be a blast, and I hope that you will all join in! Remember you do not have to participate each month - only when you have the time or feel compelled to.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself—and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
The title has been revealed, now it’s time to read and discuss!
