Review of The Elite

The Elite

The Elite by Kiera Cass is the second book in the Selection series.

The second book in Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series, The Elite is a must-read for fans of fairy tales, The Bachelor, and dystopian YA fiction. This sequel to The Selection delivers even more glamour, intrigue, and swoon-worthy romance, and will captivate readers who loved Veronica Roth’s Divergent, Ally Condie’s Matched, and Lauren Oliver’s Delirium. Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection, and to win Prince Maxon’s heart. Now six girls remain, and the competition is fiercer than ever. But America Singer’s heart is torn. Is it Prince Maxon—and life as the queen—that she wants? Or is it still Aspen, her first love?

As I said previously, all the books in this series (there are 3 of them) picks up exactly where the last one left off.

They kind of lead you to believe this is a story about a love triangle. But is it really? I mean come on, is there really any choice at who she should marry? Who wouldn’t pick the prince? Duh!

The first book was very bachelor style set in a YA dystopian. The second book in the series though, fleshes the story line out more and by the time you are done you realize you have any entire year to wait until the next book in the series is released. Trust me when I say that wasn’t easy! Lucky for you, all the books in the series are out by now but oh wow it was not an easy way back then when I first read this book. What I don’t really get is, why did it take almost 4 years to complete a 3 book series? I don’t know, that’s just something that really bugged me.
