Review: The Elite

The Elite
The Elite by Kiera Cass
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book made me want to scream!!!

America Singer made it to The Elite–the final six group of girls in a competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart. The problem, America was in denial and still holding onto Aspen Leger, her old flame from Carolina.

So America…One minute she thought she was going all in for the prince. The next, this Aspen character steps back into her life and she’s back to being torn. AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH! So that had her questioning everything. Then Maxon goes off and acts bratty or does something to make me mad because he’s driving her away. Then she does something that drives him further away. Then Aspen steps in trying to drive a wedge between them and take America back for his own…

*deep breath*

It’s insane! One minute I was rooting for the prince. The next, I’m rooting for Aspen. Then something else would happen and I’d be back on Team Maxon again…

When I say it made me want to scream, I meant that in the best this-is-way-too-much-drama-but-I-love-it-!!! way possible…

And that’s just The Bachelor part of the story. The other side has this confounding king (Clarkson, whom I hate!) and his people in revolt–the rebels of the north, rebels of the south. It’s almost so Hungar Games with the different places and different social statuses…You know you wantto be on the side of good, but as you read, you question which side is truly the best.

To say I enjoyed this book, would be entirely accurate. Read through it like that. *snap* And couldn’t wait to get to The One…the only thing is…and *SPOILER ALERT*…the Elite were still present. I thought it would be narrowed way down…Nope.

It’s really a great series. Highly rec this one.

Reading Theme ~ April 2017.

Oh, here we are. April. Already. How did that happen?
What goes on in April? Showers? Spring flowers? In most places I’ve lived, it’s prom season.

Big dresses.

Bigger hair.

Tux rentals.

Kings and Queens and Crowns.

Awkward moments.

Dancing with that special someone.

If I hear the word “Prom-posal” one more time…UGH. I miss the days of the anxious guy/girl asking out the hopeful girl/guy…the suspense, the drama…and hopefully not a Carrie incident. (Sorry, Stephen King.) I find spending all that cash on asking a girl (or guy) out ridiculous. It’s not like someone is getting engaged…but I digress…The books I’ve chosen to read for this month are definitely Prom-propriate. The dresses alone remind me of prom season. Then I stare at the tiaras, and I really can’t stop thinking about one of the biggest moments of high school life.

In the spirit of grand gowns and shiny crowns, I’ve decided to finally dance my way through…

The Selection series by Kiera Cass.

  1. The Selection
  2. The Elite
  3. The One
  4. The Heir
  5. The Crown
  6. Happily Ever After

From what I’ve been told, I am not going to want to stop reading. Not even to bust a move and “Single Ladies” with Chris Evans. I’m excited to finally read this series, especially since it’s complete and I can read straight through. I just hope I don’t wind up like Carrie…

I want these books to be everything her prom night wasn’t: Awesome!

What are your reading plans for the month?
