Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.
America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.
Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

I am so stinkin' excited for this book! It releases today (although I saw a copy at Costco Saturday and just about died of excitement) and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! I'm second in line at my library and I've been waiting at least 6 months for this book to get to me. Why? The first (The Selection) was amazing. It had a great world, mostly clean, wonderful story, characters I loved, and so much more! Plus the covers happen to be gorgeous. And I cannot wait to see what will happen in this book. Like I'm jumping up and down here :D
Four months after Ben disappeared through the portal to his home universe, Janelle believes she’ll never see him again. Her world is still devastated, but life is finally starting to resume some kind of normalcy. Until Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay shows up. Somebody from an alternate universe is running a human trafficking ring, kidnapping people and selling them on different Earths—and Ben is the prime suspect. Now his family has been imprisoned and will be executed if Ben doesn’t turn himself over within five days.
And when Janelle learns that someone she cares about—someone from her own world—has become one of the missing, she knows that she has to help Barclay, regardless of the danger. Now Janelle has five days to track down the real culprit. Five days to locate the missing people before they’re lost forever. Five days to reunite with the boy who stole her heart. But as the clues begin to add up, Janelle realizes that she’s in way over her head—and that she may not have known Ben as well as she thought. Can she uncover the truth before everyone she cares about is killed? (taken from Goodreads)
I'm much less excited for this book. I read the first one (Unraveling) with some high expectations and was let down. So I'm not really expecting anything from this book, I'm just going to try it. For some reason I thought the first book was about super heroes....and it was more about time travel/sci-fi stuff. :/ And I just wasn't that interested I guess. So I'm hoping this one will be a bit better and I do like the covers. This book is releasing today too.
Also check out Summerkin by Sarah Prineas which releases today as well.
It's a middle grade book and the first book, Winterling was quite the adventure :)
