Being told your ideal career and mate sounds perfect until you realize it’s not at all as it seems.
In the nation of Airo-Aurora, data-collecting microchips are implanted in each citizen’s brain to ensure that everyone is slotted into their ideal career and wedded to their ideal mate. Alex Egelton always envisioned a quiet and easy life with a job she’s prepared for and a husband she already knows. Her life is capsized when she finds out she will serve as a handmaid to her future husband—the palace viscount.
Alex is immediately thrust into a frenetic world of tiaras, backstabbing, and mayhem. Her presence at the palace is opposed by all, trustworthiness proves impossible to come by, and her enigmatic fiancé possesses a shady past.
When peculiar scrolls begin to appear with cryptic clues that lead Alex from one palace secret to the next, she soon realizes they have far more tremendous ramifications than she thought.
Will Alex be able to navigate the unwanted life thrust upon her while discovering the truth that will change everything?
*Content Warning: The Sordid Selection is the first book in the Pretty Little Robots series and ends on a cliffhanger.

A must read for fans of Allie Condie’s Matched trilogy and Kiera Cass’s Selection series! But seriously? A country named Myopia? It’s almost as poor a choice as a country actually called Dystopia.
I LOVED this book! I finished it in one day. This was such a good slow burn romance with sci-fi dystopia. I didn't feel like I got tired of the 'will they/won't they' back and forth. I was mildly worried at first about the characters not being likable but I was wrong. There were a few things that I wish had been explained like the eaten apples left in Alex's room? There was mild foreshadowing and hinting but where did the apples come from?? It took me a couple chapters to realize that Alex being a 'handmaid' meant just a housekeeper and not a Handmaid like the television show. The other thing I had a small issue with was a city being called Myopia, but that's just because I used to work for an eye doctor.
