Hi! I don’t know if you’ve heard, but we’re starting a blog tour/buddy read where we all read the Selection in the first week of this month. You can read the book at your own pace, and we’ll try our best to keep our posts spoiler-free. The tour part (where we post about the book) will be stopping at the end of the week, but if you’re running behind with your reading, you can always comment a little late on the posts. If you want to join, it’s not too late! Just message me, or comment with your email address ASAP.
Here’s the schedule:
May 4th: The read begins!
May 5th: Swxftbooks on character development
May 6th: Daydreaming Books progress update
May 7th: Maxon vs Aspen, on all three blogs
May 8th: Enchanted Books cast wishlist

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 attacks.
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.
Really, this is the easiest way to describe it: it’s like the Bachelor, but with a prince. A pretty great prince, in my opinion. And there’s Aspen, forming the awkward love triangle. If you haven’t read this book, definitely pick it up! Can’t wait to see what you all think 🙂
