Good. I didn't like this book as much at all. I wanted to shake America through the whole book! She was stupid, jealous, and untrustworthy! She ruined every chance she got! I was hoping in this book Aspen would leave, sadly no. Like always the romance and humor were perfect!! The plot got a little but more interesting in this book. I cried like 10 times!!! I'm hoping America will come to reality in the last book. To me she acted like a child in some parts of the book.

Emotional train wreck. I cried during the entire book. What happened to Marlee was the Saddest thing I’ve ever read and Celeste and Kriss need to die. Maxon can only love America. They are my ship

so good!. loved this book! i was a little annoyed that she takes forever to decide who she wants, but she ended up with the right choice in the end. love that for her!

Good book!. This book is so good! It has suspension,romance,plot twist! Love it I’m going to buy the new one rn

Hard to put down. The back and forth with America is exhausting but the suspense kept me reading. All in all this was a wonderful sequel and I can't wait to see how the next story goes.

Great Story!. This was truly a page turner, I literally couldn't put it down. Cass takes the reader on a journey and makes them feel fully invested in the character and outcome.

Amazing. This book has the perfect amount of thriller, mystery, and romance. This will keep you up all night reading. I recommend to people who like young adult.

3 stars. this one wasn’t as good as the selection but it still was enjoyable. i loved this as a sequel but it was a little slow i still recommend this book just not the best.

Back and forth frustrating love triangle. Basically, they see women as people who need to be pretty, quiet, and reserved. That’s it- go host a party or somthing. I know they are supposed to be royal but women should be seen differently. And nothing exciting happens really- but I’ll see if I like the last one better. This review seems harsh- but I still recommend reading the book- this is just my opinion

GREAT!. I love this book! This book is amazing although the arguing throughout the book got EXTREMELY annoying I loved the way the characters went through hardships but I the end got through it!

OML YAS. This was the first book I read as a teenager and it's awesome. So are the other two. 💖

Amazing Storyline!😍😍. If you thought the first book was good, wait until you read this one! It’s a little bit confusing, but at the end all questions are answered. Get ready for the history of Illeá’s secrets, Celeste’s Manipulation, a new crush of Maxon, A trial that holds Marlee’s secret, Kriss becoming a favorite?, America’s discoveries of different secrets and love and the king turning out to be good or evil? What’s going on with the royal family? Is the queen secretly depressed? Or is there a hidden secret kept from everyone about how the royal family really came to be and the castes became low and high? What’s the real purpose for the rebel attacks? Read this amazing to find out!!

Good but not like the first. It is a good novel. It brings to light the dark side of the Illean government and the twisted side of politics. In my opinion, this book is focused more on developing that part of the story and not so much in the love triangle between Maxon, Aspen, and America. It seems that this book was dedicated to build up and give the readers some background story for the big finale. It is worth reading though.

Brilliant. Brilliant! Just an absolutely brilliant love story that keeps you turning the pages nonstop!

The Selection: The Elite by: Keira Cass. There aren't enough words to describe how amazing this book is. The book, and the series, are by far my favorite. I have read this book at least 10 times, it is my favorite of the series. Now I am a big fan of the Harry Potter books as well as all of the classics but this book beats all of those by at least 10 points .If you like fantasy, futuristic, the classics, a little romance, and a BIG twist then this is the book for you.

understanding the beauty❤️. I see people commenting about The Selection especially The Elite and how they’re frustrated with this book. If anyone really knows how Kiera writes, they would know it’s not her story she’s telling. Anyone that truely writes from the heart has a character inside their head, screaming to come out. America wanted so desperately for her story to be told, so Keira wrote it. Life isn’t always convenient and for most of this book it is frustrating. Watching America struggle to choose when for some the choice is obvious. i love this book because it’s realistic (even in its setting) because it’s not a perfect fairytale. But because it’s not perfect that makes it’s so much better. Thank you America for sharing your beautiful story!

Love love loved it!. I completely loved the Elite. I read the first one and fell in love with it. I begged my dad to buy the next one and finished the Elite at 9:30 that very same night. It was so good! There is a bit more confusion between Maxon America and Aspen, but I like it. It kept me on the edge on my seat. America has feelings for Maxon, but is unsure whether or not she is fit to be Queen. This causes some problems between Maxon and America, but Maxon is so sweet he lets her work it out. I also loved how bold and brave America was. She was ready to risk her life for her friend when no one else did anything. She is my role model. I love how she speaks her mind. She doesn't want to be the queen who just sits by and does nothing. She wants to change the world. This book won me over and I don't even read romance novels. The book also uncovers secrets about the history of Illea and the relationship Maxon has with his father. This book may have its ups and downs but I am a fan. Loved it and can't wait to read the next one.

LOVE!. Such a fantastic series!

The Elite. I was so disappointed in this book. After the selection I was so excited to read this but there are so many problems with this book 😞. But as always, I couldn't put the book down

Pretty good. I would remind this

Sooo good!. This book is great! A bit frustrating at times with America, but she learns her lessons and knows what she wants by the end. This book had me on the edge of my seat, cracking up, and sincerely touched all at once. I’m so glad I found this series once it was already published. I’m starting the next one now!

Amazing. After reading the first book i couldn’t stop so I had to read this and it just gets better!! I’ve got to be honest i cried while reading this because of some of the things that happen, and i’ve NEVER EVER cried while reading a book, so this was just another great experience for me!!

This is the best series I have ever read!. At the moment, I am reading this book. I can't stop turning pages! This series really get you hooked on it's fluent, clear writing. Great job, Kiera Cass!❤️

Great. I loved this book...a definite must-read

Addictive. I hate how America got so confused and kind of dependent on Prince Maxon throughout this whole book. And I hate how Maxon fell for another girl! This book made me so angry but I still love the story. I get butterflies just thinking about this story lol. Also, sometimes Maxon makes me so angry I want her to go back to Aspen.

The Elite. This book is wonderful one of the best I have every read. I have read this series so many times I lost count.

Dang. Jaw dropping seriously! Finished the selection and the elite today man it's 3 am and now I'm going to bed. BEST BOOK EVER

AHHHHH. THIS BOOK MAKE ME FEEL EMOTIONAL. I REALLY WANTED ASPEN TO DIE IN THE REBEL ATTACKS (sorry, not sorry) IT STRESSES ME OUT, MAXON WILL FIND OUT AT SOME POINT. AND OH MY GOSH DON'T GET ME STARTED ON CELESTE (how in the world do you pronounce that? I feel like it's sel-es-tee) GAHH SHE IS A JERK, WHY HASN'T MAXON KICKED HER OUT YET?! AMERICA AND MAXON'S RELATIONSHIP MAKES ME STRESSED GUYS. THEY NEED TO BE TOGETHER BUT THEY KEEP DOING STUPID STUFF LIKE KISSING OTHER PEOPLE *cough America cough maxon. IT KILLS ME BUT I LOVE IT. WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER RIGHT? I GOT SO INTO MAXON + AMERICA'S RELATIONSHIP I GOT ANGRY AND CRIED WHEN THE THING WITH CELESTE AND MAXON HAPPENED. AND KRISS REALLY PISSES ME OFF OKAY. MAXON IS SUPPOSED TO LOVE AMERICA FOREVER AND ALWAYS, NOT KRISS. But yeah it's a great book. You should read it. I read it in a day I was so freaking good. Well done Kiera Cass. Just stop messing up my ship please😉.

The Elite. This book was as good as the first one! I really enjoyed it! Now onto The One!!!

My Opinion. I loved book 2 I just feel like it was a bit Unnecessary, because it’s just America confused about her feelings and them going out and creating a lot of how do I say this trouble ah there we go trouble in this book America does get in a lot of trouble well she’s makes a lot of trouble, and Maxon is dumb for showing her the secret library he knows of much of a trouble maker she can be since like from the beginning of the book. Overall great book loved it. XOXO

Loved it!!!!!. I couldn't put this book down. I was immediately stuck in the selection, falling in love with Maxon!

AMAZING!. this book has a ton a details and the suspense keeps you off your feet the whole time! you should all read this!

The Elite by Kierra Cass. I have read this series 3 times and I don’t think the 3rd time will be the last. These books are captivating and the storyline contains depth that you can’t find in a lot of books. There are so many different things that the author is able to connect into one big story that have ultimately made this an excellent read. I definitely recommends his book to anyone who likes romance mixed with suspense mixed with drama. It is a thrilling read.

Worth the read. I am invested and think this is a great series so far. The protagonist annoys me a little by omitting information but the overall story is compelling enough for me to continue:)

An interesting series!. The books in this series were all page turners and had me completely wrapped up in Maxon’s and America’s relationship! I loved Aspen in the beginning, but I was rooting for Maxon the whole time! Sooo good! I have read books that have more of a mature or rather poetic type of writing, which I prefer, but this series is definitely on my list of favorites. I encourage you to read it!

It was okay. It's a really good book and I loved it, but I found myself skimming over parts I thought really dragged on and were unimportant to the book. She keeps thinking the same things and the same problems come up again and again; it's just very repetitive.

I miss love stories like this. Traditional but so refreshing. We need more characters like America.

Best book ever!!!. I got sick because I didn't sleep at all at night because I COULDN'T BUT THIS AMAZING BOOK DOWN! I hate reading and refuse to read but when I read this book I couldn't but it down. Maybe not with the royalty or romance but I can relate to America. This has to be on my top 5 of best books read!!! If you don't get this you missing out!!!!!! P.s. If the author is reading this I want you to know I love your brain.

SO AMAZING!!. This book is so amazing, but read the first book, the Selection, first. Also get Celeste OUT OF HERE she is so annoying but is also a great “villain image” But how the heck is she still in the competition?? 🤨😲

Love it. Love this book

Wow. This is soooo good!!!

Intense. Ready for the 3rd book. So compelling to know more! Great read!

KIERA PLEASE READ MY COMMENT LOVE YOUR SERIES. I know Kiera Class will not see this but if you see her show this to her ;) this series is what I have been reading. It took me 2 days to read all 3 books from Americas perspective, and I must say they are the BEST books I have ever read, I just kept getting rapped up in the moment when something bad was happening I would get the shivers and when something good was napping it was as if there was a rainbow was above my head my face was literally smiling I ended up re reading the page all over again. I would KILL for more books and a MOVIE of all of the books... I have been searching to see if there was actually a movie because YouTube made it seem like there was and I am VERY DISSAPOINTED that there is no movie. Like I said before Kiera will most likely not see this but I decided to suggest a movie anyways:) I've tried to contact her but it didn't work that is ok. I honestly love these books, they are my life right. Is... So if you know her PLEASE share this comment with her:) I know I have left this review on all the other books but I want to get noticed and would LOVE a movie.. Sorry if being to harsh "dear" but I LOVE these books and CAN NOT WAIT till the new one comes out !! Much love, A selection reader- Madison

Yes read!!!!!. Amazinggggggggg

Love it. Great!

Would read over and over and over again!. This is one of my favorite books. It has everything that someone could want in a book. This book had me squealing of excitement and groaning for other characters. It still has your favorite best friend and the mean girl that you just downright hate. This book has many plot twists to keep you on your toes. Can't help but fall in love with this series.

!. Love this series!! Recommend to all!!

Awesome!!!!. I have read every book in the series and they are my favorite books! IF YOU DONT GET THIS BOOK YOU ARE STUPID!

SO GOOD. this book was super good because it wasn't as predictable as The Selection

😍😜😀😉😉😊. I love this book!

The Elite. Loved the 1st book couldn't wait for this one.. I did enjoy this book but hated the way it ended.. very disappointed :(

Love it!. This is so amazing! I love it! You have to buy it!

AWESOME. I loved the book it was so good i felt very girly reading this book lol there was so much unexpected drama like with Marlee and with the king the end was sad and happy overall one of my favourite books cant wait for the last one

Yeet. It's lit I'm shook

Marvellous!. This is the second book to the Selection Series! And oh my goodness I finished this book in THREE DAYS! This book is amazing! Read the first one, and then this one! You will not be disappointed! It’s certainly a page turner!

Lol. It says 13 up I’m younger but still love this series

Omg. First I love it read it 3 times already each In under 24 hours and second it really really gets me mad that the one isn't on iBooks but it is out I had it on my iPod then the update and now u can't get it I mean really

Cash Grab. This is not what you would call a real "series" of books. It's one story broken into many parts that you have to pay and wait separately for. It's a rip off and a total cash grab and for that reason I would NOT recommend it to anyone!

I like this book!. I loved the 1st book the selection, and couldn't wait for this book to come out. I was surprised with how this book went and was a little disappointed with the ending and some other parts too. But overall it was a pretty good book and I am still very excited for the 3rd book, the One to come out.

I fell in love with this book aha 😂💖. I totally had love the selection and now i just finished the elite. This sequel is supper and i can't wait to read the next book. 😊😊 If you are looking for a book to read read the first one the selection you are going to love it. So much drama in this story that i can't even go for Maxon or aspen lol. Il buy the next one as fast as i can. One thing if you didn't read this book read it right NOW its worth it.

LOVED IT. So much unexpected drama ! I read it in one setting, I couldn't put the book down...I can't wait for the last book (coming out in Spring 2014).

OMG this book is amazing. This is my fav book now!!! I read it in 3 days

Who to pick. This book had me so torn between Maxon and Aspen that I still don't know where I stand! Overall great book.

Love, love, love!. TBH I didn't really like America as much in this book. I liked her her stubborn attitude, but in elite she became more rude. I love the book tho, and would recommend it to anyone.

Maxon+America=❤️. Love the selection and the elite! Can't wait for the on! Hope Maxon picks America 🙏
