Helloooo everybodyyyy!! I'm doing a reviewwww, finalllllyyy!! UHM YAY! So, I never really did a review on "The Selection", the first book in this series, but just go look it up. LETTTT'SSS GETTT INTTOOOO THE POST
In America Singer’s world, a bride is chosen for the prince through an elaborate, televised competition. InThe Elite, America is one of only six girls left in the running. But is it Prince Maxon—and life as the queen—that she wants? Or is it Aspen, her first love?
How I Liked The Book
Overall, this book was nicely written. Great plot line, with lots of twists and turns. I love the fact that it is a dystopian/romance novel with a competition. Basically: Hunger Games plus Divergent plus the Matched Series.
This book wouldn't let me put it down. It was so intriguing with the ups and downs in the Maxon/America/Aspen thing.
THIS BOOK. WHAT. OKAY WHAT, WHAT WHAT.
Let's divide the characters up. AMERICA. SO STUPID. WHAT ARE YOU DOING.
America: You obviously know Maxon is totally in love with you. And then you wait until he goes for Kriss and THEN you realize how much you love him. WHY ARE YOU SO CRUEL.
Maxon: Now onto Maxon. He was BY FAR the best character in this book, sweet, caring. He loved Mer so so much. Ugh, there was ONE thing that I really hated about him. His intimate relationship with Celeste. BUDDY, HELLOOOO, YOU'RE IN LOVE WITH AMERICA. NOT STUPID CELESTE. GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER.
Aspen: Aspen. Aspen, Aspen, Aspen. LEAVE. WE DON'T NEED YOU. This whole story should be Mer and Maxon. NO ASPEN. BUH-BYE. that is all.
Marlee: MARLEEEEE! What the heck were you thinking girlfrand. You should have just ASKED to leave or whatever! That would save you the drama of becoming an 8 and getting CANED.
Celeste: OKAY CELESTE. NO NO, BUH-BYE TO YOU TOO. Go fall in love with Aspen or whatever.
Mkay, all done! In short, this book gave me trust issues, and toyed with my emotions. BUTTTTT, it gets a 4 1/2 out of 5 stars!! Yup, that's how I rate ma books.
