Oh my gosh. I feel like I have waited FOREVER to read the conclusion to this series.
I was so excited to finally get my hands on a copy, and HAD to read it straight away.
I needed to know what was going to happen, and who America was going to pick.
Maxon or Aspen? Maxon or Aspen?
Hell, even I didn't know who I was going to pick myself!
This book was just PERFECTION.
Everything wrapped up so well! So much happened and some unexpected things happened too.
I was gushing, in shock, angry and sad at so many different points.
This book is definitely my favourite in the series.
God, it was just amazing.
Even now I find myself thinking about the book and everything that happened in the entire series.
I think - in all honesty - it will remain with me forever.
Not many books have affected me in such a way. This book definitely deserves a medal.
The general storyline to this book was so good. So much happened: the rebels, the friendship between the final girls in the competition, things that affected the families, and some characters making the right decisions.
It contains a fantastic distopian world.
America was a little reckless at times; just like in the other novels in the series. However, she developed and blossomed into this beautiful swan that people admired and wanted to be. Even I myself am jealous and would love to be in America's shoes (I mean, those gowns <3 ).
I previously read the novella The Guard before reading this, so I had both a love for Aspen and Prince Maxon. So much that I just couldn't choose between them. Both were great people.
Aspen did have a heart and cared so deeply for others.
And Maxon...because he's handsome, a prince and has wealth. He also has a way with words. He can literally make you melt and fall in love with him.
America was definitely in a touch situation. But I could see who she really had fallen for...
There were times when I was annoyed at Maxon. He was just such a player with all the other girls. But then I did find a reason behind him being like that. I won't spoil you on that as I want you to read and find out for yourselves!
This book had me feeling all sorts of emotions. I was laughing, crying, happy, full of sadness and in suspense. I was literally on edge. I honestly couldn't put the book down.
I don't often sit and read a book straight in one sitting, but with this one, I did just that.
Full of twists and turns; I promise you won't be let down.
Kiera Cass is fantastic in her writing. She definitely captivates you.
The story is written in first person, and the chapters have a decent length.
The beginning of the book caught my attention; I was straight into the story.
The ending was just full of bliss. It was so perfect that it had me gushing, and I just wanted to shout to the world that I had read a fantastic book.
This book definitely deserves the rating that I gave it, which was an Ultimate Katie Star (5/5 stars).
I can't believe the series is over. I just can't.
I want the whole world to read The Selection series. It will forever remain one of my favourite series. I will hold it in my heart forever.
If you like distopian worlds with princesses, friendship, families, romance, conflict and a hot prince, then this series is definitely for you. Or just read it anyway and I'll be proud of you ;)
I hope you have enjoyed this review.
Happy reading =)
