The Selection began with thirty-five girls.
Now with the group narrowed down to the six Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever—and America is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want—and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away. 


The Selection wasn’t that great, but every good quality it had was pretty much non-existent in The Elite. It was pretty much two hundred pages of “I don’t know who I looooooove!!!!!”, and everything I hate about shows like The Bachelor.

Kiera Cass continued to borrow from other well known YA books, this time taking a little too much from The Twilight Saga when designing her love triangle. And we all know how people (I) feel about love triangles… The only good thing I can really say for it was that the concept is still intriguing enough for me to continue to read. I’m curious to see what direction the series ends up taking. Personally, I hoping America and Prince Maxon join the rebels, but that still screams Katniss, Peta, and Gale…

    1. I already read them, lol. I wrote these reviews last summer, but I didn’t have a blog them. I’m just posting them now for fun, since I don’t have any new reviews to post currently. I actually rather liked the Heir, but found the One absolutely ridiculous.
