Book Review: The Elite (The Selection Book 2) by Kiera Cass

The competition is down to only six girls, the Elite, and America is still one of them, but she's still not sure she wants the crown or Maxon himself, and, as their relationship gets rockier, she's not even sure he wants her. But with Aspen still on her mind and in her heart, she knows she's going to have a big choice to make soon.

2.5 Star Book Review: The Elite (The Selection Book 2) by Kiera Cass | reading, books, book reviews, sci-fi, dystopian, YA, YA romance
Title: The Elite
Book Number: Book 2 of 5 in Full Series, Book 2 of 3 in America's Story
Pages: 337
My Rating: 2.5 Stars


This book was basically the same as the first–an easy, semi-enjoyable piece of light YA. But I say semi-enjoyable because I’m going right back to my rant about how a book is supposed to have rising action, a climax, falling action, a goal, etc. This didn’t have any of that. It was just the middle of a story, maybe what you could call rising action, and not very much happened.

Also like the first, the best thing about the book for me was still America. I loved her personality… but she did start getting on my nerves with some of her flip-flopping thoughts. And what was with constantly thinking Maxon didn’t like her when he made it 17000% obvious that she was the one he wanted?

That about sums it up for my review. Super short by my usual standards, but, again, it was only the middle of a story, therefore not something I can give a good rating to. If the story is one that you are really loving so far though, by all means, read this book because I think you’ll continue to love it.
