Summary (cr: goodreads)

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. 
My Review: (also in goodreads)

I know, I know. This is a book I thought I wouldn't read...ever. The storyline didn't catch my attention and it felt that my teenage self would've enjoyed it better. But I was wrong...well partly wrong. Though I was right that my teenage self would've love this better there were some points that I enjoyed like America's wit, Aspen *nuff said* and most especially Maxon and America's budding friendship. I may have prematurely judged this book but I guess I'll read till the end of the trilogy to see firsthand how it goes.

Till the next read...
