Netflix to Adapt Kiera Cass’ The Selection

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! ♡

  1. I binge-read this series back in middle school and while I found it to be cringey, it was also very entertaining. I think the movie will be even better. I think I would like it better as a mini series, though.

  2. I miss the initial announcement, but I know the book twitter was really excited! I’m really excited too, I can’t wait to see the setting and the beautiful dresses ❤ As with Erin's comment, I think mini series is the best fit as there wasn't a lot of things going on, plot wise.
