Episode 3.1 – Our Hero, America

Helva is dead, long live The Selection!

America might become a princess if she can choose between Aspen and the Prince. If that sentence makes no sense to you, welcome to The Selection by Keira Cass, where 35 women compete to become royalty. And yes the main character’s name really is America Singer. 

In this episode we hear from the book’s fans (spoiler they hate Aspen), discuss the probability of evil twins, and invent a sexy gardener with a thick accent. So put on your best ball gown, grab some poison, and kiss your secret sweetheart goodbye because you’ve been selected to join The Gentleman’s Romantic Book Nook.

What People Are Saying

Wow, they actually did it! A podcast that challenges the typical Romance reader with bad opinions, excellent goofs, and fake reviews!

-John Human

Really well done take on the genre, and I would know! I’m excited to see what comes next, or I would be if I were still alive.

-Lord George Byron, FRS (1788-1824)
