The Elite by Kiera Cass (The Selection #2)

May 21, 2018

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.

I’m sorry to all Selection fans but this will not be a positive review. I struggled to find the right words for The Selection, I’ve just finished the second book in the series, The Elite, and I feel completely the same way. It’s so bad, as in bad characters with bad morals, bad romance, bad dialogues, and for some twisted reason I keep on reading! I will never understand this but I’ve come to accept that some books just fit the IDEK tag and now that I’ve gotten this far I plan to finish the series. I knew going into this that it would be cheesy since that seemed to be the overall theme of The Selection, but I was actually surprised by some darker elements that were introduced in The Elite. It added some depth and variation that we got to experience the consequence of and punishment for breaking the rules but unfortunately these were only short incidents and the story was quickly back to the cringe-worthy love triangle. I’m definitely not a fan but I got myself into this mess and I will finish the series for sure (at least the original trilogy).
