Sunday's Author Spotlight: Kiera Cass



Unfortunately the author who signed up for today's Sunday's Author Spotlight didn't follow through. So today I decided to make a Sunday's Author Spotlight about one of my favorite author's Kiera Cass. Kiera Cass is the author of the very successful Selection series, which I absolutely love. Last year I met Kiera Cass myself on a YA event in Amsterdam. Not only is Kiera a great author, but she is also a very kind and funny person. Definitely someone who deserves to have a Sunday's Author Spotlight about her! ;)

'The Selection' (The Selection #1):


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10507293-the-selection?from_search=true&search_version=service
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.

This book is available at Harper Collins, Amazon and Barnes & Noble

'The Elite' (The Selection #2):

The Selection began with thirty-five girls. Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon's heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America's chance to choose is about to slip away.

This book is available at Harper Collins, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

'The One' (The Selection #3):

 

  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18635016-the-one?from_search=true&search_version=serviceThe time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

This book is available at Harper Collins, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

'The Heir' (The Selection #4):


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22918050-the-heir?from_search=true&search_version=servicePrincess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.
But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.

This book is available at Harper Collins, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Next to the Four regular books in the Selections series there are also several novella's available.
