I'm hyped about the book of the month choice for February. I've heard nothing but good things about this series and the reviews have been stellar. The February 2015 book of the month pick is the novel The Selection, by Kiera Cass.
The Selection is a story about a girl named America. Set in a dystopian period, America is about to enter into a world that she really doesn't care to be a part of. This is a story about the journey America embarks on; that thrusts her into the competitive "selection" process that will decide who will win the heart of Prince Maxon. Sounds a bit interesting...especially given the dystopian vibe. Can't wait to find out what happens.
The Selection series currently consists of four books and three novellas.
The Selection Series in Order:
THE SELECTION - Book One
The Prince - Book One Novella
THE ELITE - Book Two
The Guard - Book Two Novella
THE ONE - Book Three
The Queen - Book Three Novella
THE HEIR - Book Four - Releases May 5, 2015
As always...happy reading!

Synopsis via Amazon:
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.
