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
- The Selection ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- The Elite ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- 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.
