The Elite by Kiera Cass Review

Publication Date: April 23, 2013

Format: E-book
Page Count: 323 pages

Series: The Selection #2


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.


Actual rating 3.8 but I'm rounding it to a 4

Every freaking character from the first book changed. EVERYONE. Either they got annoying, got stupid, got idiotic, or plain messed up.

We have six girls left, America, Marlee, Celeste, Kris, Natalie, and Elise. Now I don’t want to rant about this too much, but I felt like I wanted to crush every each and one of the characters by the throat.

I really wished that this was told in two points of view because I’m this close of putting America in the worst protagonists ever list. I am too fed up with her emotions and from America’s POV, I’m starting to hate Maxon which I shouldn’t because I read the novella which is told in his POV, and I loved it.

America has got to be I don’t know #2 of my top most annoying, not thinking, idiotic, blabber mouth protagonists! I was always so annoyed because America has so many opportunities to talk to Maxon about his intentions, but SHE DOESN’T! America is stupid she such a selfish I'm so frustrated because she is like " I don't wanna listen to you.” So many times I wanted America to just shut up and grow a pair of balls.

I got a little carried away, but you get the point. I’m giving it a four because it was still a great read but one tiny big flaw was the characters. I still can’t wait for the final book in this trilogy.
