Greetings to all.
So, before starting this blog post I really want to say that this post or all the coming posts are not meant to hurt any writer or to throw shades on any one but rather it is just a mean of expressing my own opinion about certain books or parts of general books. Now, without further due, let’s get started.
There are quite some books that are so good and hyped but somehow they become awful along the way. And amongst this realm of books we have this particular series that is so bad yet so interesting at the same time. Let me give you a hint: it is YA dystopian which is quite popular (and includes lots of beautiful dresses).
The Famous or rather Infamous ” The Selection Series” ❤
SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the books yet then read them first and then read this post.
Okay, when talking about The Selection Series the first character that comes in our minds is, America Singer. I have literally never come across any character which is as annoying as she is (Maxon boy, I do believe you are cute but I don’t respect your life choices and don’t even get me started on Aspen!). First of all the love triangle! I hate love triangles in general but if you want me to murder those characters throw some America Singer in it and Voila! you have the element of ruining every good story.
I actually loved reading this series. I read the first three books in two days straight. This series is something you cannot simply put down and sometimes you have this strong urge to throw it across the room.
When I finished the first three books I was like, “Okay, so finally I got the answers and now I won’t have to read about this clueless or rather dumbest character” but guess what? The daughter came in the picture. You know that phrase? Like mother like daughter. Well, in this case the daughter was 10 times more of what her mother was; “The most Powerful” Princess Eadlyn. (YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!)
I have one question. Why these men in this series need to reevaluate their life choices so much? I mean, I get it love is blind but love isn’t dumb enough to not recognize the annoyance of another person. I have so many conflicting feelings towards these books. In one way, these books are my guilty pleasure. I might re-read them in future (like again and again) but I have such strong feelings towards these characters that I will keep on despising them. But still I cannot deny that this series is so entertaining that I couldn’t put down the first three books. I actually kind of DNFed The Crown when I was halfway through the book. I couldn’t take any longer of Eadlyn Schreave and had to just read the ending but I totally recommend the first three books in this series.
So there you go, The Selection Series is awfully good (Only oxymoron can define this series). The covers are so pretty, the dresses are amazing, the writing is also really good but one has to be tolerant enough to read this series.
Hope I didn’t offend anyone. This is only what I felt about this series. I never said these books shouldn’t exist because writing these kinds of books is a real talent and no one should discourage anyone as Truman Capote said, “You can’t blame the writer for what the characters say.” I do believe Kiera Cass is an amazing writer and she should write more amazing books in future.
