It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, Amy does an amazing job. I just had to closed eyes and pretend I was there.
I didn't have one, it was all good.
Yes, the scene where America caught the Prince making out with another girl. My stomach dropped.
Yes - I have recomended the Selection to many of my friends - and you HAVE to read the next part!!
That I was suprised at a few things that happened - didnt see it comming and I love that!
I liked the narration and thought she did a great job with different voices - I knew who was who just by her voice
Yes and I did!
I was desperately waiting for this book to come out after reading - The Selection. I absolutely loved the first book - and I really liked the second. But I have to agree with other reviews - the love triangle did get a little too much attention and huge circumstances got a back seat. The back and forth with her decision was a huge rollercoaster and in the end came full circle to the same place we started. I am rooting for Maxton and hope that the third book can delve a little more into the surrounding circumstances that just America deciding one then the other.
Yes, but only if they read the 1st book in the series. It was a well written book but not as lighthearted as the Selection.
Many reviews I read complained about how much they really disliked America and that she is wishy washy but nobody in reality has ever been in her position. Extremely poor growing up, falls in love and rejected even though she was willing to be even poorer; then live like a princess and she is only 17. Even though she has fallen in love, the terror of her decision and how it will affect her and her family is out of this world. It's still another non-stop read that I just couldn't put down.
Honestly I can't compare this book. It's still a contunation of the selection preocess with lots of politics, and the palace under attack constantly
My favorite scene was actually at the ending when they were the most honest and she discovers how much he truely loves her.
Honesty prevails but secrets abound
America is dealing with her growing love for Maxon and what she wants. She's reserved about becoming a princess, but wants Maxon. Aspen keeps pushing her to choose him and she knows he's a safe bet. But reality is she is 17 years old and if she chooses Maxon she inherits a great responibility when she becomes a princess and then the queen. If she chooses Apsen she knows where she will be a "2" in the caste system. But reality is she doesn't think like a "2 or 3" she thinks like a "5 or 6" and is feeling inferor. The Selection process has changed her more than she realizes until the end. She is finally going through the stage in life where she is uncertain of her feelings and experienceing jelousy for the first time. Must be very hard to want someone who is dating 6 people at the same time.
I see so many hateful reviews, I'm sorry people, I'm still addicted!! Guess some people are just going to hate. They may just be mad the author dragged it our over so many books but they are still suspenseful!
I'm glad I stuck with this series, even knowing who she ends up with due to the later books. It still kept my heart racing and myself guessing at how they ended up together. I've also never wanted to throttle a main character for her idiocy so much, and wondered how she could flip-flop so much in her emotions, but that is what kept me guessing. This book had a particularly sad scene in it that really creates the later internal conflict. Very nicely done.
