I remember calling up Savannah and asking her about The Selection and her telling me that she was not sure if I would like it or not. To me it felt like it was going to be sort of like the television show “The Bachelor.” I was hoping it wasn’t because I didn’t like that show and after reading the book, it still had some aspects but it was way better. Now that we have reached the end, I am both happy to have it in my hands to read but sad to see this trilogy end. Kiera Cass captured my heart and this book will definitely with The One I know I won’t forget.

The time is approaching where Maxon will have to make his decision. There are four girls left and even though I have a pretty good guess at who will be selected, Kiera Cass has sure threw in some side balls to throw you off. America is walking on thin ice since the last book and now is the point she has to be a

This book did move faster for than the other two books, and I do not know if that was because I wanted to see how it will end or just because it was just that good. I am going to go with the second choice. The last six chapters were the hardest things for me to read and they were the chapters that turned me all giddy into an emotional mess. It was like a domino effect and everything just came crashing down.

America has grown into a young woman since the first book and her feelings for Maxon are becoming more and more evident. What I really liked about America is how smart she is and how every decision is so different from everyone else. She knows what is right and she makes sure she is going to do whatever she can, to make sure that happens. Maxon, annoyed me a little bit because he doubted America especially when the time had come. However, he made it up because I could see that these two really and truly loved each other.

I am not going to say much on this subject because you need to read this book but I wanted to hold Celeste so bad in this book and never let her go. She became my second favorite character in this book and that is saying a lot so go read it and find out why.

When I got to the part where America is reading the letters from her dad, I was crying. Nothing could stop the tears and I didn’t want to stop even though it was turning me into a big wreck.

Overall this trilogy has done more than captured my heart. Following America has been such an honor and I know that it will be hard for Kiera Cass to top this but I know she will write something amazing. Everyone needs to read this series even if you are a guy. This will give you a clue about what girls go through sometimes. FYI.

I give this book 5 bites!

    I’m excited to read this one Chayse! I loved book one but struggled a touch with book two, and I’m hoping this third book brings back everything I loved in the first one. I adore Celeste already, so I have a feeling I’m going to love her even more by the end of this final installment! Glad you loved it:)

    This sounds like an intense finale and I personally love those that go super quick bc you just love it so much and are so into it. But it’s also bittersweet bc you dont want it to end obviously 🙂 I’ll have to start this series I’m soooo curious about it!!

  3. I still need to read this series. Yea, you have made me want to pick it up now. Hm… might have to move it up the wishlist.
