Plot: 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.
Favorite Quote: “Sometimes I feel like we’re a knot, too tangled to be taken apart.”
This is the second book in the Selection series. Read my review for the first book The Selection here. The Elite starts of exactly where the previous book ended. The girls have been reduced from thirty five to six. Maxon has to pick a queen and America has to choose between Maxon and Aspen.
This book like earlier one is high on drama, bitchiness, jealousy, revelation of dark secrets and cut throat competition. There is a very interesting love triangle between America, Maxon and Aspen. There are many heart touching moments between America and Maxon. Those are easily the highlights of the book for me. I honestly wanted America to take a decision but I think I will have to wait until the next book.
I don’t know why I am so into reading this series but I am definitely going to read third book ‘The One’. Over all, the book is a very quick and a fast read just like the previous one. It can be easily devoured in two to three hours. If you are looking for some romance and love triangles with a lot of drama and jealousy, this book is for you.
