The Selection Series

Now who doesn’t love a good heart-felt happy ever
after? When I first heard about The Selection, I was weary of the idea, but I
tried it anyway. Oh and I tore through that book! I was super impressed with
the turn out and that I was glued to every page. So naturally, I couldn’t wait
to read the other books and it had the most perfect ending.  Once America’s story was told, there were a
few more books added to show Princess Ady’s story and it was just as perfect.
Both with the magical happy ending.
The Selection
For thirty-five girls, the
Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid
out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and
priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous
Prince Maxon.

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

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 Elite

The Selection began with
thirty-five girls.

Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite,
the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is
still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who
could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest
of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about
to slip away.

The One
The time has come for one winner to
be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection,
America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to
Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the
threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how
much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she

The Heir

Princess Eadlyn has grown up
hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago,
America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they
lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story
romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her,
she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess’s life is never entirely her own,
and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she

Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance.
But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart,
showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving
that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always

The Crown

When Eadlyn became the first princess
of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love
with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the
competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as
events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes
that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale
ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of
surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more
impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.
