Series: The Selection
Previous Rating: Five out of Five perfect amazing wonderful Stars
Release Date: April 23, 2013
Why I Am Excited: This is hard for me to say because I am so completely enthralled and ga-ga over this series it makes it difficult to sit still when talking about it. I think I actually stutter a bit when I try to explain how epically delicious this story is. It’s just… just… perfect. This is why .gifs were made, when people like me can’t put their feelings into words so here.. this will hopefully capture my emotions:
This story, these characters, the writing, the plot, it’s all magnificently molded together to make an amazing new fairytale. This series is dystopia meets Cinderella. Totally swoon worth men and a feisty little heroine. I literally love every. single. aspect. of The Selection and will cry tears of joy when I wake up next Tuesday to The Elite on my Kindle.
What I Hope To See: *Contains Spoilers* If you haven’t read the previous books, LOOK AWAY! The Selection was an amazing book and really set us up for a tempting second installment. With America and Maxon’s sultry romance blossoming and Aspen’s new position as a palace guard, there is going to be a lot of sexual tension flying around the castle. And with ho-face model girl there to be the devil on Maxon’s shoulder when it comes to his affections, you know there will be girl fights happening. Now I hope hope hope American finds true love with Maxon (come on, he’s a PRINCE!) and sends asshole Aspen packing (he left YOU, America!) and all will be well. But with this only being book numero dos and a third book waiting in the wings, I’m not sure how close we will get to the answer of who ends up together.
My Predictions: I base these predictions on the synopsis they release with the cover and this one is SUPER exciting because it tells us America actually decides who she wants to be with SNAP! So I am going to go two ways here:
- If America chooses Maxon: If America decides she wants Maxon, and then “a devastating loss” happens, I think someone in her family must die? And if they do die, I think it must be because of the royal family in some way. Did the King force her father or mother to do something? Is her sister sick? Who knows. But if she does sway Maxon’s way, something HAS to happen to cause her to double back.
- If America chooses Aspen: I will hate this series if she does. BUT if she does, I think as soon as she chooses him he gets shipped off to the battlegrounds with the rebels. Or he gets killed/maimed/hurt when the rebels attack the palace.
- Along with the LoveTriangle between America, Aspen and Maxon, I think slut-face Celeste is going to dig her claws pretty deep into Maxon and cause some uber drama. Especially since Daddy wants Celeste way more then some random 4. And perhaps we will see the “other girl” from The Prince novella in book two as well? That would be juicy 😉
