Recommendation Fridays: The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

   Years ago on a random camping trip, I had picked up The Selection to bring along with me from my local public library. It was one of the last ones that I decided to read from the pile of books that I had brought, but I can definitely say, that I had no regrets when it finally came down to reading it. After finishing it within a day, I threw it at my sister to read the minute she asked me for something to read. She read it 3 times during that trip. 
   From that day on, the series became one of our all time favourites in the years to come. From pre-ordering each book in the series, to begging our mother to allow us to go to YALLFest 2014 mostly to see Kiera Cass. 
   The series is full of Princesses, Royalty, and a chance of a lifetime, and for the people who love hearing stories about what happens to the characters after their happily ever after, then this series is also for you.  

   You will not regret picking up The Selection series, it'll be one of the best decisions you've ever made.

The series would probably be best for people who like the following books:
Royalty, Princesses, Tiaras, Dresses, Drama, True Love
