The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection.

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

I liked The Selection. It was a great read for when I was in the mood for something lighter. I hope they don’t dwell too much on the love triangle aspect, because, I mean, it’s all about Prince Maxon. I hope there’s some hot romance between him and America.

  1. This is reminding me that The Selection has been gathering dust on my To Read shelf for months… I think I’m ready to admit that I probably buy too many books. I’m not going to stop though 😀

    • Hahahaha, no, never stop buying books! I don’t blame you. I’m not one to preach that The Selection is one of the best books ever, but it definitely was an enjoyable read. I hope you do get around to it eventually 🙂
