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.
— inserts me daydreaming–
I wonder how it feels when I go get the chance to be one of the girls in the Selection. I wonder how it feels when the castle door is actually in front of me and Im with my servants. I wonder how it feel when Im with the Prince. Will I feel butterflies in my stomach like the other girls usually feel or just feel nothing like America.
Hmm. This book is really amazing. I just saw it on bookstores and I thought it was the ordinary Prince-Poor girl love story BUT no it wasn’t. After two months, I saw it again on one of my friend’s book recommendation and then I started searching for Ebooks.
The first night I read that, I was then hooked up with the book. I finished the First book which is The Prince. It was nice. Prince Maxon’s POV was awesome. I sometimes wonder how it feels to be one of the Royal Family? Is it something I should be proud of because I have wealth and I can nearly do everything or it’s just something.. something additional to life’s burden? Being a Prince is not an easy task. Maxon was manipulated by his father. Oh poor guy. 😦
Anyway highway, The Selection tells us of America Singer who was just forced by her mother to fill the forms for the Selection. America that time was inlove with Aspen. Then the selected girls were revealed and America was included!! Know what? I think Aspen broke up with her that time. So, she’s going to the castle with a brokenheart.
What’s nearly amazing about the book? Lady America is different with the girls. You know she was there not because she likes it or she likes the Prince or was after the money BUT she was there because she was chosen.
Later in the book, America meets Aspen, who turned out to be one of the palace guards. And then she’s starting to be friends with the Prince. Then Maxon got his first kiss and the girls were slowly becoming less.
You know I want to tell you everything but Im so tired of typing and I dont know where to start and what to put next.
Back with my daydreaming, I wonder how it really feels to be loved by someone despite your imperfections. (BIG WORD!) You know, Prince Maxon knew America — that she’s brokenhearted and was in love with someone, that she’s a four, and she’s not that girly like the others. Maybe, Prince Maxon was inlove of Lady America because she is herself. She’s brave, she’s not fake and she’s fighting for what she really believes.
In the last book, it was said there that America also loves Prince Maxon yet the Prince is still doubtful of America’s feelings.
America’s father died and when she came back? She was given with a portrait of a house. She thought she was given the portrait only BUT also the house in portrait! Oh my Maxon. You make me fall. 😀 ❤ And then the Elites, were down to two. America and Kriss.
Then Maxon saw America and Aspen together. Then he was mad at everything — jealous maybe. Because all those time, Aspen was the one who broke America’s heart.
The day of the announcement of whose going to be the next Queen if Ilea was asdfghjkl. I wonder how America felt when she was completely ignored by Maxon. She wanted to cry because she’s hurt but instead kept it. Then qwertyuiop, the rebel attacked and boom! Celeste was headshot and I totally cried because she doesn’t deserve that. I know she was a bitch for the first three books but in the end she was really kind, she was the second bestfriend of America, In the end, America thought Maxon died but he turned out to be resting at his new room (the King’s). Yes yup yohoraaaaat! 😀 Unfortunately,King Clarkson and Queen Amberly died during the attack but thanks God Maxon is saaaafe! ❤ And and and, he fvckingly chose America. So let’s cursy to the new Queen & King of Ilea. ❤ ❤
–There big revelations in the book though. You better see for yourself 🙂 🙂 Chao!
