From the shelf: The Elite (The Selection #2)

Title: The Elite (The Selection #2)
Author: Kiera Cass
Genre: YA, Romance, Dystopia
Date read: October 31 - November 1, 2014
Dawn Rates:  (2.5/5)

Summary (cr: goodreads)

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.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Lookback: The Selection

I know that it's too cliche to have a love triangle going on with the male lead and the second male lead vying for the female lead's attention. It was inevitable that Maxon would fall in love with America and that Aspen would resurface; but what I didn't like is Mer's indecisiveness. She is happy with whoever she was with and was too much of a coward to choose one because she might make the wrong move. I was worked up with her selfishness. I wanted to punish her, I honestly wanted a scene where Maxon would walk into Mer and Aspen. The only consolation was May and her maids (Anne, Mary and Lucy). Marlee is becoming a favorite character although my heart broke on what happened to her.

Till the next read...
