Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.
But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.
Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.

Okay, truth be told, I actually do not like Eadlyn at the start, because she struck me as bratty and spoiled, so unlike America. America was different in the way that she was strong and brave, and so-not-entitled. Eadlyn, on the other hand, was super entitled, thinking only for herself. She also had a very strong sense of independence and pretty much has something against guys. Like, she really really hates the Selection.

For some reason though, my annoyance at Eadlyn kinda faded away after awhile because the side characters made up for it. America, Maxon and even her siblings, and the Selection boys were amazing, funny and spent most of the book making me laugh or tear up. Also, we got to see how Eadlyn’s character actually develop to something better, someone better and we get to see a different side of Maxon and America. I mean, I bet we all thought that after The One, Maxon and America would finally receive their happy ending. But then again, life doesn’t work that way, and the author showed that part, the part where happily ever after doesn’t really exist.

There was also that distinct difference between Eadlyn’s Selection and America’s Selection. I half-expected there to be full of dramas, but surprisingly, it’s pretty calm, probably because this Selection is filled with guys, and guys don’t do dramas.

I really cannot wait to read The Crown, because I am seriously curious as to how the story will pick up, especially after that ending. THAT ENDING. GEESH.

First gif for this book? And before you cry out in dismay, I will say it now: I LOVE THIS BOOK. Yeah, yeah, I know that gif screams anger and rage, but that’s directed to the EVIL PEOPLE IN THE BOOK. But this book is fabulouuuus. I wanted to murder every little people in this book who DARES hurt the children. And also those people who didn’t care that their kid was being killed because of their actions. In case you did not understand the summary, The Scorpion Rules is about how one kid from each leader of a country has to be […]

OH YES. FINALLY THIS IS THE CONCLUSION. HAHAH. You have no idea how sad I’ve been when I realized that The Elite was not the ending. For some reason, despite my excitement in my review of The Elite, I pretty much became annoyed with America Singer before I started The One. And to be honest, I think it was because AFTER writing that review, the excitement kinda wore off and all my irritated feelings came back. Because this whole series got me into a whole bunch of super duper mixed feelings, I actually waited 4 days to review it. I needed to get my […]

This is one of those book that ended on a note where I spazz about it 24/7, and willingly wanna give it 5 stars. HAHA. But after a few moments of thinking, I shall rate this book 4 stars. (I’m sorry!) This book was definitely one of the best, and it seriously had potential. But there were some parts where it was quite draggy, but other than that, I definitely love love this book. This book reminded me of The Hunger Games, and for those of you who knows me well, you would know that I kinda despise Hunger Games. But […]

This book kinda made me confused but then blew my mind the next moment. YUP, that’s my review. HAHA I’m just kidding, but honestly, if I were to summarize my review about this book, it’ll definitely be that. I chose to read this book thanks to Paula Stokes! When I saw this book, I remembered that once Paula actually talked about this book on Twitter and so I was curious. Plus, it looked so sci-fi-ish. BUT I did enjoy it, despite the whole confusing comment thingy, which I will explain. Yes, the first few pages of this book kinda got […]
