I am so thrilled to be kicking off this tour to celebrate and send-off Kiera Cass’ Selection books. Of course I’m sad to see this series go. I’ve loved reading these books so much! However, I’m excited to see what Kiera has in store for us next!
This tour is a bit different. Each tour host will be creating a post about the series and/or what it has meant to them. I can’t wait to see what the other bloggers have to say!
When I think of The Selection and the books that follow I immediately think of friendship. Of course this relates to America and Eadlyn and their experiences with the selection process. However, that’s not what I really mean. I’m talking about friendships in my own life.
I now work with a number of ladies who love this series. However, back in 2014 when The One came out I really only knew of one other coworker who had read it. Brianne and I were friends and loved talking about books but we hadn’t really hung out much outside of school. When I saw that Kiera would be signing in Naperville I immediately asked her if she wanted to go. Of course she did! Also, Jaimie, her friend from high school, was a fan of the series so we invited her as well. Little did I know, this would be the first of many adventures we’d have together.
These ladies are two of my very favorite bookish people! We have so much fun talking books and attending events together. And we don’t just do bookish things! We have lunch and go to movies and just have an all around good time together. We probably would have eventually becomes friends without The Selection but this series really brought us together and gave us a common ground to fan girl on! As I said before, there are now a number of people I work with who have read this series. For someone as socially awkward as I am it’s great knowing I have something to talk to them about if I can’t think of anything to say!
On another note, back in 2012 I attended my first ever Romantic Times convention. One of the first authors I met there was Kiera Cass. This was just days before The Selection was released! She was so sweet and so fun to talk to. I was with my friend Kristi and the three of us got to spend a lot of time together enjoying the conference but also being totally overwhelmed by everything! Kiera was one of the first authors I really got to know and I’ve loved seeing her at RT and her book signings since! She has continued to be sweet and fun to talk to and just a kind and good person in general! I’m so thankful that I got to know her thanks to this lovely series of hers!
About the Book:
Kiera Cass’s bestselling Selection series has enchanted readers from the very first page. Now the end of the journey is here, in a wonderfully romantic series finale that will sweep you off your feet.
Twenty years have passed since the events of The One, and America and Maxon’s daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own. Princess Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you… and now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.
The Selection series has sold more than 3 million copies and captured the hearts of fans around the world. This swoon-worthy final installment is the happily ever after they’ve all been waiting for.
