The Elite by Kiera Cass is the second book in a book series about a young girl who is chosen for The Selection with 34 other girls, all looking to marry Prince Maxon. After the events of the first book, this sequel to it follows right after the events that took place afterwards. As I mentioned in my review for the first book, I was really hesitant to start this series, thinking that I wouldn’t enjoy it at all. It didn’t seem to be up my alley.

Boy was I wrong! I am obsessed with this book and the series! Even though I know what happens in the end, I kind of forgot about it all and got so absorbed in the drama that was going on! I flew through this book, finishing it in about 5 hours and instantly starting the last one! I liked the different girls that were with her, even though one of them was such a b*&%h! But they were so interesting, and made the story so much were fun to read!

America was so frustrating, but also such an amazing character. She is a very strong person, and was always doing her best to help the people that meant the most to her. I also liked that she was standing up for others who couldn’t do it themselves. She didn’t go with the flow like the other girls were. I didn’t like her indecisiveness, at times it was really frustrating for me, because even though I knew the ending; I knew who she really cared the most for! It was a bit obvious if you really looked at what she was saying and feeling.

I adored Maxon! He was so cute, and so sweet! I really enjoyed him and his character! He had such a drastic growth in this book if I say so myself. He really expanded himself, and it was cool to see him care about other things than what he seemed to before. Seriously swooned with him!

But still! I loved that this book could really suck me in, that I was so hooked that I just wanted to finish so I could read the next book! Which I did! And finished a few hours after starting it!

Overall a fun book to read and a fun series! Highly recommend!

Let me know in the comments if you’ve read this series and your thoughts! I’d love to talk about it!
