Book: The Elite by Kiera Cass
Genre: YA Dsytopian
Rating: ★★★☆ ☆
From: the library
Short Synopsis (beware spoilers for the first book in the series The Selection): Our heroine, America (named after that country of olden times) went to the selection in the first book. That's where the prince chooses from 35 girls, which one he wants to marry. But first, he has to narrow it down to six. They are called The Elite. And as we know, America has made the cut. In fact, it appears that Maxon (the prince) has already chosen her. But... has he really? And speaking of choosing, has American chosen him because there's still this little problem called Aspen, who she loved first. And Aspen is cozy and comfortable. Meanwhile, there's a revolution starting!
My Response: Lots of picking and choosing and changing of minds in this book! But we do learn a bit more about the turmoil this world is in and America finds herself in peril more times than one. Also, there's a pretty powerful moment when Maxon lets on to a secret he's been hiding his whole life. And now, America knows. All in all, for what this book is.... it's pretty good fun. Mostly fluff, with a touch of deeper stuff thrown in. Even a few genuinely sad moments. Pick it up when you're in the mood for that sort of thing. Beware the triangle, but one that includes lovely characters that you can't help but change your mind about right along with everyone in the book!
Bottom Line: Fun and fluff and stuff! I enjoyed it for that.
Let's Talk About: How do you like your fluff? Pure or mixed? :)
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast-paced read that combines lighthearted fun with a thought-provoking dystopian world. From Wordbird
I do recommend this series, it’s really entertaining, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but I think there are high chances of you enjoying it. Besides Prince Maxon is amazing, and you’ll instantly love him. From Words We Heart
