The One by Kiera Cass
The One - Kiera Cass

Oh my gosh, This is BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait to read this. Fast forward to 2014 please?! :">
Let's go TEAM MAXON!!!!

June 4,2014

This review might contain spoilers.

I'm so happy to finally read this book and the ending was very predictable as I've expected. (view spoiler) The book ended with a great conclusion and I was satisfied with it. I may be annoyed with America Singer for being whiny and indecisive in some ways, but I was impressed with her on this book. Her compassion, selflessness, and courage to stand up against the king was outstanding. I can't help smiling and in my mind I was like "You GO GIRL!".

Maxon Schreave, oh my goodness. You my dear prince never failed to make me laugh and swoon. His moments with America made me giggle like crazy. I don't mind laughing alone. I don't even care. I am enjoying this damn moment to fangirl on this trilogy.

I am instantly hooked with this trilogy. The romance, rebellion, revelations, the clues-I-didn't-see-coming, the pretty covers....everything! I am going to miss this one. If you want to read a fast paced dystopian read, I highly recommend this one. :)

Favorite scene: The Convicting (view spoiler)

The Selection by Kiera Cass
The Selection - Kiera Cass

Fantastic, Enchanting, & Romantic

This book reminds me of Cinderella with a touch of Hunger Games because of the contest wherein young ladies belonging to different castes are chosen to become part of The Selection in search for the Prince's true love/confidant for lifetime and the next princess who will rule Illea.

America Singer, a Five, doesn't want to be part of this traditional contest. She doesn't have a choice but sign up for the sake of her family and his boyfriend, Aspen whom she loved and was planning to have a future with him. Being selected changed her life in a way she get privileges of wearing fancy dresses, expensive jewelries and delicious meals.

Despite of being a Five, she's not intimidated with other ladies who have higher castes/statuses. I love her natural beauty and personality. She did stand out among the other ladies which caught everyone's attention, particularly Prince Maxon. I love how she treats her maids as her friends not the other way around. She's just adorable and funny.

Another reason why I love America Singer:

A strong heroine doesn't have to be a kick-ass one to be lovable, but to be an influential one or be a good role model to her people.



I love Prince Maxon. He's sweet, kind attractive, gentleman, understanding and swoon-worthy guy. I wish America would end up with him. I don't really like Aspen for breaking America's heart, but I feel sorry for him somehow. So, I'm rooting for Team Maxon ;)

I feel so giddy after finishing this. I just love it and I can't wait to grab The Elite and read it!

The Selection by Kiera Cass Book Review!
The Selection - Kiera Cass

I'm back with another review! This time I'm reviewing The Selection which is the first book in the Selection trilogy by Kiera Cass. I loved this book!!!

 

Everyone in the country of Illea are rated by the caste system starting from One to Eight and your caste determines her occupation, pretty much. America Singer, a Five is in love with Aspen, a Six, who tells her to enter the Selection. Whoever wins the Selection gets to marry Prince Maxon. When America meets Maxon he's nothing like she thought he was and starts falling for him, not sure if she should choose Aspen or Maxon.

 

I ship Maxon and America so hard! For me the boat of 'Who Do I Ship With America' sailed when I first saw Maxon. When I saw Aspen and America being all couple-y I felt nothing and Aspen kept reminding me of Gale from The Hunger Games. But when I saw Maxon and America together I couldn't help smiling. And when Aspen came back into the picture near the end of the book I wanted him to leave. I have nothing against Aspen, I just don't really like him that much. And if you read my reviews you know how I feel about love triangles.

 

I love Maxon's character. He's so different from every guy in every YA book that I read so far. He's so polite, and compassionate, and just a gentleman which was very nice to see.


And then there's Celeste who I REALLY don't like! Her character reminds me of Nellie Olsen from the Little House books. I like Marlee and America's friendship, and it was nice to see that not all of the girls were competitive and were nice to America. 

 

And let's take a moment and look at the book cover. That's one of the reasons why I love this series: the covers are beautiful and the dresses are so pretty!

 

I saw some people say that this book is "too girly", but I'm perfectly fine with that. The Selection isn't The hunger Games, or Divergent, or Legend and I like those books and all, but sometimes it's nice to have a change and this was a change I liked.


All in all, this was a great book, and I want to read The Elite.
