Kiera Cass's Top 10 Princess Movies
In this Amazon exclusive list, author Kiera Cass shares her all-time favorite princess movies.
- The Young Victoria- The clothes alone make this one rad, but the girl falling for the guy who she didn’t want to and everyone else did… and it turning out perfect? Love it!
- The Princess Diaries- “I’m still waiting for normal body parts to arrive!”
- Elizabeth- It’s cool that you beheaded my mom. I’ll make up for it by being a girl and running a country at the same time. Like a champ.
- Enchanted- “Oh, Giselle! We shall be married in the morning!”
- The Prince and Me- Gotta love a smart girl who chooses herself. *cough cough*
- Marie Antoinette- I think I’d go on a crazy spending spree too if my hubby didn’t sleep with me for the first seven years of our marriage. Decadence at its finest!
- Ever After- Classic Cinderella. Don’t we all want to be the girl who was meant for more than she ever knew? Bonus: hot prince.
- The Princess Bride- “Anybody want a peanut?”
- Star Wars- Princess Lea: regal, hardcore, and rocker of wicked buns.

I know this series has a lot of contractions for readers. Yes, there is a LOT of drama. The same old love triangle between America, Maxon and Aspen is far from over. In fact, it is stronger than ever in this book. Yes, America drove me crazy with her indecisiveness and bouncing back and forth! Yet it is the way Kiera Cass presents the story to us that sucks me in past those annoyances, into the very center of a rich world.
This book is also a bit darker than the first one which is nice. While the first books had me on a fluffy cloud of giddiness while reading this one kept me right where I was but completely riveted to what was unfolding. King Clarkson is a piece of work! And I have a funny feeling this book just scraped the surface of his true character. And Marlee, oh Marlee! I love her character! We also get a lot more information on the rebels. The attacks are stepped up and secrets revealed. This has me questioning a lot of things for the last book. I have a few theories and suspicions although these suspicions has me very concerned for certain characters...
And now for the romantic drama. We last left off with Maxon utterly devoted to America, Aspen pinning after her and America was finally willing to focus on Maxon. Well situations and Maxon's behavior turns America into a yo-yo of emotions for both guys. While I like Maxon, certain actions and responses (or lack thereof) really throw America into a spin. Hence, drama!Read more ›
The Elite left me with some mixed feelings. I think it was a great continuation and displayed a large amount of character development but at the same time I didn't like said developments. The Elite had a ton more action than the first book from the rebels, torture, and girl fighting. Overall it had a more intense and anxious mood to it.
I am definitely TEAM MAXON but both Maxon and America bothered me this book. Seriously the worst thing Maxon could ever do was kiss Celeste and he did. So now as a reader I don't trust him. Even though he explained himself and was warranted because America was being a moody bitch. I still ship them but they can be downright annoying at times. Then the whole Marlee thing happened and America was more upset by it than Marlee. She blamed it on Maxon when he had nothing to do with it. Aspen and Kris really surprised me because they were two characters that I tried too hard to not like but I really couldn't help it.
I definitely felt that The Elite explained and showed more of the caste system. In the reports we realize how greedy and unfair the king truly is. Maxon hasn't even had total control in The Selection.Read more ›
While the girls remain focused on winning the prince's heart around them attacks from both the north and south pushing to end the Selection before the prince makes his choice. As the threat's get more violent the king press's his son to eliminate more girls moving closer to ending the selection before the rebels can end it themselves. As the Selection progresses she will best tested in more ways than she can imagine as all the girls are each tested some in harsher ways than others.
I really love America's character she is very strong, stubborn, defiant, acting rashly. Yet she follows her head and heart even when it's not always the best choice speaking out for what she feels is right. I have enjoyed reading about her adventure in the selection watching how she grows from just wanting to be there for her family to really wanting to be the one. I'm kind of torn on the whole Maxon and Aspen thing, at first I hated Aspen for the way he treated America and now I'm not so sure. As for Maxon we kind of have a love hate relationship, every time I think he's perfect he end up doing something to make me hate him. I tend to avoid love triangles but this seems to be the exception.
The Elite is a fun continuation of America's journey through the selection process. Like the first the elite is very much Revolution meets The Bachelor which I kind of love.Read more ›
