Two’s Company, Three’s a Trilogy – The Selection Series


Let’s talk about trilogies.  I have a confession, before we really dive in.  I have a serious issue with not finishing trilogies.  The reasons vary but it’s usually because I don’t want the story to end.  If I read the last book, there’s nothing else to read.  But now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, let’s talk about trilogies.  Please note, I have finished the below trilogy (although therea are a few more books, this post is only about the original series).

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

  1. The Selection ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  2. The Elite ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
  3. The One ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I loved this series.  It’s very rare that I loved all the books in a series equally, but this is a case of that very event.

I hate love triangles, but I still think this is a five-star series despite that.  I think the love triangle is necessary to show the difference between America’s old life and her new one.  This is a unicorn event, but I think the love triangle was well used here.

The political drama was both interesting and unexpected in this series and I welcomed the idea of a semi-contemporary book with a plot that included politics.

Although I haven’t read all of the novellas, I love that they exist.

And, if I haven’t listed enough reasons why I love this series, it actually continues on to a multi-generational story with America’s daughter in books 4 and 5.
