When Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie’s high school, she feels a connection to him, like she knows him. But he wants nothing to do with her.

So why can’t she get him out of her mind?

The Elite + The One

The Elite by: Kiera Cass ( The Selection #2 )

 

 

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.

 

This book was my least favorite event wise. It was super well written but event-wise I just didn't like it. This book was a little slower and it was just something you wanted to fly through. It's the 2nd book of the Selection Trilogy so if you haven't read the Selection then you should definitely read that first book. It picks up from the first book and just takes off.

The Selection

The Selection by: Kiera Cass

 

 

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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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.

 

 

Full Review [Read When Done]

 

 

Wow. This was a really good book. I went into this book expecting for me to run to grab the second book to continue on reading. I loved the characters and the plot for this book. The character development was great since we meet new characters as America meets them and so we are basically making fictional friends. There wasn't much world development in this book because the world now isn't very significant and doesn't contribute as much to the plot. I really enjoyed this book and if you are a person who enjoys romance and dystopian this is for you. If you are a big dystopian person and want to try something new then go ahead and pick up this book. 

 

Hope you enjoy!
