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.
I swear this book took me 2 seconds to read! I don’t know what it is with this series that I could not put it down. I love the concept and where the story seems to be heading. The plot in this one seems to advance a little from the first one. There are 5 more girls left for America to compete with, and although prince Maxon already expressed his feelings for her, the other girls are beginning to up their game.
No matter how much I adored the book, a few characters were beginning to get into my nerves. America Singer would have to be the most indecisive girl there is which was sooooo frustrating! One minute she likes Maxon and then she would come running to Aspen. There were also times wherein I want to stab both Aspen and America for being utter idiots.
Even though the characters annoyed me, I totally loved the world building. I really want to know more about the rebels and what is going on in New Asia, I think it’s quite vague to the readers because it’s in America’s point of view and she knows very little about it as well.
I really enjoyed this book except America. I hope she’d get her shit together in the 3rd book.
