About the Book:
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

My Review:
Where to start… oh yeah.... I really LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!

Concept: I really thought this concept was interesting. It kind of reminded me of the Hunger Games and the Bachelor TV show. The Hunger Games just because there were 35 girls being narrowed down to one winner. The Bachelor TV show, because of what is going on in the story. 35 girls are trying to win the love and affection of the Prince Maxon of Illea.

Two Guys: America Singer is one of the 35 girls that were chosen to live in the palace while the "The Selection" competition was going on. She has been talking to the Prince since day 1. America is more of the prince's confidante than a girl of the Selected. But then Aspen comes back into the picture. Now America has to choose one or the other. Honestly, after what Aspen did to her before she was picked for the selection, I think America should choose to go after Maxon. I look forward to seeing who she chooses.

I don't want to say to much else about the book without giving away spoiler information. I will just say this: I LOVED THIS BOOK, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!!

Until next time, Happy Reading!

I totally agree with you about Aspen. Despite that, I really liked it!

Yeah I'm not a big fan of Aspen at the moment, I'm rooting for America and Maxon actually.
