Review: The Elite by Kiera Cass

Hello readers,

I am really sorry for the lack of posts throughout the last months.
You may have noticed that I am way behind on my reviews (here and on Goodreads) and I am planning to making up for it during the next weeks, so there will be posts all through out the next weeks besides the usual Sunday reviews and Wednesday specials. There will also be my first ever giveaway on the blog at the end of the month, so make sure to follow me and stay tuned for that one.

The reason for my lack of posts were mainly private, first I was in my finals feeling like a complete mess and at my stress limit, a week later I fell really in and was diagnosed with a virus which forced me to stay in bed and trust me when I say I mainly slept through it and didn`t read at all. Not fully recovered I took part in a 4 week language crash course which at the end of the day just made me fall into my bed and sleep so no time for reading there either. And last week I completed this course with a trip to Hungary (which was beautiful). So I am sorry again for letting my reader friends and author friends down, but I am back now and I hope you can all forgive me my absence.

Now after this long intro I got a new review for you.
Beginning of July I started reading the Selection Series by Kiera Cass which I really enjoyed overall, but I wanted to give individual reviews of the books as they all seem to have different ups and downs for me.
Now if you haven`t read my review for the first book of the Selection make sure to check it out here.

The Selection  began with a group of 35 girls all fighting to win the heart of Prince Maxon, now that this number has been narrowed down to six which are now called the Elite the competition is fiercer than ever.
While America still hasn`t decided wether she wants the fairytale Prince Maxon or her first love Aspen the rest of the Elite knows exactly what they want.
Will America have the time to choose?

Now in this second book I really felt I could relate more to America. I absolutely loved the character developement of Maxon, but also shipped her with Maxon right from the start.
Throughout the book I got annoyed again by the Love Triangle but only because it got dragged out so long.
What made up for it was that the dystopian aspect finally showed with some rebel action.
This book was really a fast read and I felt so intrigued by it that putting it away to study was pure agony.
It had definetly less flaws than the first book so I rated it 4.5 out of  5 stars.

I hope you enjoyed todays review. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
I hope to see you again soon for another bookish post.

Take care,
📚 Nadja
