142 posts | 795 read | 5 reading | 55 to read
Kiera Cass’s The Elite is a must-read for fans of dystopian fiction, fairy tales, and reality TV. This sequel to The Selection will enchant teens who love Divergent and The Bachelor. In America Singer’s world, a bride is chosen for the prince through an elaborate televised competition. In the second book of the Selection series, America is one of only six girls left in the running. But is it Prince Maxon—and life as the queen—she wants? Or is it Aspen, her first love? The Elite delivers the adventure, glamour, political intrigue, and romance readers of The Selection expect, and continues the love triangle that captivated them.

I liked the first book The Selection but this one just kind of dragged on for me and I feel like very little actually happened. I hate when it seems like an author is just dragging out a book to make it a trilogy... I mean of course I still have to read the last one to find out what happens 😂🤔🤷‍♀️ and close out the story but I hope it has more action than this one.

America Singer is such an annoying protagonist. She still can‘t seem to figure out where her heart lies so she continues to lead Prince Maxon and Aspen on. She isn‘t sure she wants the prince and doesn‘t know if Aspen is the one, but she doesn‘t want anyone else to have them. Definitely not as good as the first book, this dragged on. With about 20% left, I was ready to be done but Kiera Cass managed to drag me back in... so on the next book.

Spending this snowy day with America and Maxon! I am loving this series and don't want to stop reading the books. Side note: my mom thought I was weird walking around outside with my book trying to get a snowy picture with it. 😂😂😂 On to the next book! I am so glad I have all of them and don't have to wait to start the next book!

The Selection began with thirty-five girls. Now it is down to the six Elite. The fight to win Prince Maxon‘s heart is fiercer than ever and America Singer is still struggling to decide where her heart truly lies. Is with with the prince? Or is it with her first love, Aspen?

Light and addictive read. 4 ✨

aroc One of my favorites! Love this artwork! 6mo

This quote is actually what I didn't like about the second book of this serie. The first book was all about the love triangle and I liked it. This second book was the exact same thing, except with fewer candidates. And it became a square. So didn't really like it. If I wanted to read the first book again, I wouldn't have read this book. I'm a bit sick about her whining of needing time by now...

On the first day of the library sale I scored an autographed copy of The Elite by Kiera Cass which I have been wanting to read for a while!!! So I was stoked about that! I don‘t own very many autographed books. What‘s your favorite book that you own that‘s autographed?

minkyb I just gave my daughter an autographed Tamora Pierce and she was ecstatic! 11mo
Beatlefan129 I got my mom an autographed copy of Dean Koontz‘s latest book 11mo
booksandsympathy I've met Deanna Raybourn and Lauren Willig together twice, so I've had a couple of books signed by each of them. I also had Tasha Alexander sign her most recent book. My favorite one I own though is my favorite Susanna Kearsley book: The Shadowy Horses. It's about the lost 9th Roman legion and she also gave me suggestions for movies about it and other reading about it. 11mo

Betty @BookaholicNatty my favorite autographed book is Roots by Alex Haley. The newspaper put a photo of him signing books at a bookstore, and my daughter was in line in the photo! Years later, he died; the local tv station showed a clip of that autograph session and there was my daughter in it. ♥️. 11mo

A plot point at the end saves this book. This book is the epitome of eye rolling and annoyance.

Will I read the next one? Since the library has it available and it's easy to listen to at work: Yes. If it was not available I would be ditching this series. Does anyone else torture themselves for convenience?

I‘m a high school English teacher and the Selected series was suggested by the teenagers. I didn‘t really want to read it...but with some reluctance, I started in on book 1. Finished book one over the weekend. Moved on to something else and have literally been thinking about America and Maxon like they‘re my friends....so book #2 can wait no longer! 👑👑👑

BiblioTori I love this series! I made my friend read it (she was completely disinterested at first) and she fell in love with it. It‘s not what you expect it to be at all. 14mo
Bronte_Chintz I‘ve avoided these as well. You may have tempted me to give them a go! 14mo
TheBookWasBetter1983 @Bronte_Chintz I try to read what the kids like to read but stay away from most dystopian books and series. I looooved Hunger Games though, so I thought I‘d give it a try for some light, but enjoyable summer reading. 14mo

I‘m still nursing a head cold so I needed something easy to read . I‘m a sucker for YA dystopian romance. This series reminds me of Matched and Delirium . It‘s light and just a bit silly, but just what the doctor ordered. Spring Sunshine has returned.

I absolutely loved this book! ❤️ I couldn‘t stop reading it!
I love the characters and the storyline, I was reading this in class and some parts got me very emotional to the point where a single tear escaped and I had to close the book for a moment.
This is truly one of the best series I have ever read, and I suggest it to readers who love dystopian romance and competition.
Thank you @BreesBooks28 for introducing this series to me! ❤️

⭐️⭐️ The story was really fast paced - that made it more enjoyable and easier to get through. Conversely, the character development really took a back seat - all of a sudden she knows what she wants, then she doesn‘t, then she does. She‘s doing the exact same thing as Maxon, but she can‘t accept the position he is in? America‘s father was the star of the show - honestly, he‘s the father that every child wishes they had. He was so supportive.

I loved The Elite. A lot of people talk about how the plot is not good blah, blah, blah, and they're not wrong. But I love it anyway. Not every book has to be a literary masterpiece for you to enjoy it. Sometimes you need something simple and a little silly.
