The Bookish Baker
This book just ahh. I can’t even really put into words how I feel about it. I don’t even think I know my feelings about this book. I don’t even know what to rate it because I can’t even put into words or thoughts about what I’m feeling. Do I like it, hate it? I don’t know. I can’t stop reading this series. It’s like a crazy annoying but I can’t put it down series. There is like no plot and the characters are just so flat and indecisive and I just can’t hardly handle them. I read them all so quickly and love them so much while I’m reading them but hate them after. It’s so weird that I can’t put my feelings to paper or in thoughts. I really think that this book could have been non existent. You could just smash it into The Selection and likely The One and not even bat an eye. There is so much useless information in The Elite. The whole plot is practically America going back and forth in her mind trying to decide whether or not she’s in love with Maxon and wants to be with him or whether she loves Aspen and wants to be with him. I’m sorry but just DECIDE already! PLEASE! She’d see Maxon and love him and then she’d see Aspen and love him. OH MY GOD COME ON! You’ve had two books and another one coming in the series and you can’t just DECIDE ALREADY! PLEASE! She wants Maxon to commit to her but doesn’t want to commit to him and she wants Aspen to wait for her, you know just incase SHE CAN’T DECIDE, and doesn’t want him to find someone else. COME ON GIRL! America, oh America. I just CANNOT with her. I’m sorry I just need you to decide. You have had two books and oh my goodness. She is so indecisive and grrr. I just feel like I can’t even express enough just how much she annoys me. Maxon even bugged me to death in this one! He wants America to choose him but he won’t send anyone else home because he wants “options” but doesn’t want them. He wants to stand up to his father but just wont do anything. I can’t with 99% of the characters in this book. Aspen is so annoying as well. I mean come on dude she isn’t gonna choose you and you could get the two of you killed. So dumb. Marlee is the only one that I like because she is so pure and does what she believes in thank god. Finally a character who can decide. We hardly even get to know ANYTHING about the Elite. Nothing about their lives before the selection or really even anything about their lives during it. The maids also give me hope. They are very amazing and good people actually. I really liked the Rebel Uprising. It at least lets us see a little bit into the world and I loved it. This really needed some other sort of conflict other than the I CAN’T CHOOSE BETWEEN THE GUYS conflict. I really needed something other than indecisiveness. I also loved that we got to see some of Maxons past. It was seriously needed to know that he is something other than a privileged prince. The plot is just so similar to The Selection and I just wanted something fresh in this world. Can you not just make it so similar.
