The Elite



Title: The Elite

Author: Kiere Cass

Series: The Selection #2

Expected Publication: April 23rd

Publisher: Harper Collins Childrens books (UK), HarperTeen (US)

Links: Goodreads, Amazon UK, Amazon







Synopsis - from goodreads

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

My thoughts

I really enjoyed The Selection - much more than i expected actually - and i can't wait to find out what happens next with America. I have heard some great things about The elite and i can't wait to read it myself.

So are you looking forwards to this book? Have you read the first book and if so did you like it? What books are you looking forwards to this week? Feel free to link to your own WoW posts in the comments :)

  7. I just skimmed the Selection but I am curious enough to check out and possibly skim the Elite. I like Aspen though and not Maxon and everyone seems to be into him! LOL Thanks for stopping by!
