Review Of The Elite

Thursday, 7 August 2014
Book: The Elite
Author: Kiera Cass
Publisher: Harper Collins
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian, Annoying/Indecisive Protagonists, The Swoon-Worthy Maxon Schreave, Cliffhangers, Sequel 

Rating: 5/5 Stars (Excluding the ending. Trust me, I'll explain later.)

Summary: The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection.

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.


Review: That ending was — I don't know how to explain it without spoiling the whole thing, but I'm going to go with one giant mess (plot line wise not story wise). It was more of a "Don't you dare do that America! Stop making stupid decisions!"

The first half was perfection. There was so much Maxerica fluff. 

The book starts off where the last book finishes off (well pretty close to that point) and we see their bond growing. Even though Aspen's there, it's like he's not there.

Even if the other girls were working even harder to get Maxon to like them, he still only had eyes for America. But of course, she ruins everything with her indecisiveness (read the book and you'll understand) and it's so frustrating. 

Overall, it was definitely not what I was expecting, but if you like the first one, this one is just as good and definitely worth the read.

See you tomorrow for my review of The One where I'll go into detail about the series as a whole.
