Book Highlights - "The Selection" by Kiera Cass+ America Singer's style part 1


Synopsis: 

Selection is a Dystopian Era themed book, it centers with America Singer, the protagonist of the story, an outspoken young woman from caste 5 in the country of Illea', the former United States of America. America Singer has the opportunity to become the new Queen of Illea, if only luck is within her. The Monarchy of Illea is seeking a wife for Prince Maxon, and in order to do so, 35 young girls will be selected and win the competition of a lifetime. 

Reaction: 

I expected a lot more from this book, I was fairly disappointed of the outcome. It was peaking to its potential but failed miserably, I was anticipating action and maybe thrills, but then again maybe the author didn't want to her book to appear as another "Hunger Games" For me this book was a little bit more of a fairy tale rather than dystopian, I loved Kiera Cass's writing style, there was a lot of  art within, it didn't serve as too abrupt nor too melodic. I can't be too sure about the whole series so I'll get to know on the next book if this series will be worthwhile, but as of now I'm not getting into the hype, but! there's a but! I was enamored and excited about the love story between America and Prince Maxon, it was a little out of the ordinary, and I hated the fact that Aspen was still in the ropes when it comes to America's heart, so I'll be waiting for the next book. 

The Characters were quite promising, especially America, I liked how she was a woman with appeal and attitude, she knew what she wanted and didn't back down from her goal. I loved how she was a simple girl, who knew her roots and didn't change for her benefit, she was quite and inspiring character. Truth be told, I imagined her as somewhat like Scarlett O' Connor from Nashville, sweet, caring, a little vulnerable but a force to be reckoned with. 


Style: America Singer

America auditions for "The Selection" wearing only what her family can provide. Being part of a low Caste, America is described to be wearing plain clothes that suits for her caste, but her beauty and charm is what stands out and makes her a contender for the selection.

I imagined America keeping her simplicity and class whilst about to become one of the most sought after contestants of the selection, the book described her style as simple yet stunning so I kept all the colors neutral. America was a crowd favorite so keeping her look sweet and cute makes her stand out from the rest who wears all that gunk of make up.
