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.
Haha, if this book intrigues you in this way that love triangles just make you feel like, "URGH", definitely don't go and read the next novel I'm writing. So before I write I "listen" to the story-- I don't alter and infer with it's course as I'm trying to find the plot. And oh boy, the story is really complex. My grandma is into the Selection series; it's insane, but oh well!ReplyDelete
Oh that's all right, I'll most definetly read your story Morning!!! Thanks so so much for commenting, I really appreciate it.Delete

Neat ! The book cover looks beautiful ! I did a post on your Blog Birthday ; )ReplyDelete
Yay thanks! I do agree, it is very pretty.Delete
I like your review! I'm currently reading that book, and I can't believe that Maxon has a relationship with Celeste. She's my least favourite character for sure. I did a review of The Selection on my blog, so if anyone wants check it out, feel free. :)ReplyDelete
I'll definitely check it out! Thanks for commenting!Delete
I agree with your opinions 100%. I had so much fun hating Aspen. When he came back, it was just like,"Go away! No one likes you!"ReplyDelete
Please check out my blog at

PLEASE do a review/reaction when you read the next book! I loved this series and reading this makes me want to tell you what happens! haha! Also did you know there is going to be a book after "One"? I don't remember when its coming out and also DON'T look it up until you read "One" because the description of the new book would spoil "One"ReplyDelete
I just got One and I've started to read it! I'll make sure to do a review once I finish!!!Delete
What a great review! I only read the first book on the series and never continued on because I didn't like it ♥ReplyDelete
