Another YA book adaptation is on its way!
As I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, I noticed a post from Kiera Cass. It seemed like a normal update at first, but then I saw the Netflix tag.
According to a Variety article posted earlier this morning, the Netflix film adaptation will be based on the first book of The Selection series by Kiera Cass. It is said to be directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour, who has already worked with Netflix on Nappily Ever After.
Kiera Cass’ The Selection takes place in a dystopian future where 35 girls are selected to compete for the prince’s heart. The competition is seen as a great opportunity, but America Singer sees it as a nightmare. Until she meets Prince Maxon…
I’m so excited to see this book hit the screen! Like all adaptations, I remind everyone (and myself) that adaptations will never be perfect since we all have our own visions. The best thing we can do is be supportive and wait for the film before critiquing.
And on that note, I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from the book:
“True love is usually the most inconvenient kind.” -Kiera Cass, The Selection
Until next time, happy reading! ♡
