The Selection (The Selection #1) by Kiera Cass (3/5 stars).
I confess that I bought this book because of its cover (lol) I am utterly besotted with that dress! The Selection is said to be The Hunger Games meets The Bachelor, which is odd but definitely an interesting combination. I read this book right after it came out but didn't have the time to write a review of it then. I thought the dystopian elements had holes in a lot of parts and the pacing a bit slow sometimes but it can still be very enjoyable depending on the reader's tastes. If you want your dystopian book to explain satisfactorily how the present world came about, this book may not be for you. The explanation in the book just raised a lot of questions in my mind which made it lose a star in my review. But, if you just want to read something fun, like I did, then this could be a good book to pick up.
The Selection sure is a fairy tale guilty pleasure read!
