Confession: I fell in love with Prince Maxon in the book The Selection. I wanted him to be my book boyfriend so bad!!! And then The Elite came along and I now suspect my dear sweet prince is made of handsome handsome lies!!
In case you didn’t heed my words and rush to get The Selection back when I recommended it, I’ll be generous (this time) and give you a brief recap. The United States has fallen apart and been rebuilt with a monarchy and a caste system. The leading lady of our tale is named America, and against her better judgement she enters a lottery to become the Prince’s one true love and the future queen. Of course, she’s not the only girl vying for the heart of the prince, the crown and all the luxuries that come with rising to the top.
In The Elite, the prince is still searching for a bride with increasing pressure from his domineering father to choose a pliable mate. The country is in turmoil as rebels storm the castle and throw The Selection into chaos. In this book lives are on the line, the tragedies are more real, and the pretty people are showing more of their inner ugly to the readers. Fans of The Selection will definitely want to grab a copy of The Elite and settle in as we all wait for the next book of the series reportedly title The One.
The wait might not be so bad if the CW version of The Selection lives up to my expectations.
