Then I see it, on , The OneSo I do my Happy DanceThen something catches my eye, and it takes me a while to absorb this informationMAY 6TH 2014!!!!!!!!!And naturally I flip a table"After my freakout I decide that as long as America doesn't end up with Aspen, I'll be ok.So I'll waitAnd take action if necessary,All in all I reall [...]

    3. After readingI'm just sooo emotional over this,, the sweet sweet sweetness, adorable emotional angsty love i love love love love this, i love itfangirling AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!My Maxon ♥ ♥ ♥♥ ♥ ♥“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.” "Shhh," I urged.“I'll love you until my very last breath. Every beat of my heart is yours. I don't want to die without you knowing that.”"Please don't," I choked [...]

    4. EDIT 21/04/2014The wait is almost over! Soon we'll find out - Maxon or Aspen, Aspen or Maxon? Maxon, Maxon, Maxon,Max----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------EDIT 27/09/2013Well, looks like I was right!

Aspen and Lucy will fall in love with [...]

    5. **UPDATED JANUARY 19, 2014**AMERICA!!!???*Maxon & America<3For America, I expect her to be plain. Many times in the book, she is not viewed as the prettiest and continuously refuses to wear too much makeup or dress too fancy. Maybe in "The One", she will change her mind in order for the public to view her as the gorgeous girl her family, Aspen, Maxon, and many people see. I hope not. I like her stubborn ways! :)Extremely excited about "The One" but having to waitone year ?UGH.I AM SO READ [...]

    6. I was immensely proud of America by the end of the Elite, and couldn't have been more happy with the end of the trilogy! We all knew who she would end up with! I was crying the "I'm so lonely!" tears all through the last chapter before returning to my single life. Haha

    7. These books are such easy reads, though dealing with America's America-ness was not so easy.I liked that she stood by her beliefs and values, but it drove me nuts how she flip-flopped all over the place with her feelings. Especially since it was very obvious how she felt, a lot of her indecision didn't have much justification. Throughout the series, I never felt like the rebels were truly threats, they never seemed very dangerous. Things changed towards the last half of The One, which I apprecia [...]

    8. Update: 25/9/14 I am officially changing my rating from 2 stars to 3 stars! Why, you may ask?The answer: unlocktheselection/And with that lovely webpage comes an exclusive bonus epilogue for The One which made me a very, very happy fangirl! There's even some irony in there:'I made my way across the floor, sampling some hors d’oeuvres on my way. None of the food seemed terribly appealing, though. Maxon’s favorites weren’t necessarily mine, I just had to trust that everyone else would enjoy [...]

    9. 10-2-12; 10:47pm: Team Maxon! :)9-26-13: W o w. Look at this BEAUTIFUL cover. In my review of The Elite I said I wanted the book green, but I'm COMPLETELY won over by the white. It's gorgeous. I can't wait! 03-12-15 Hey guys! So, I FINALLY got back into reading/reviewing and I'm happy to say that THE ONE is gonna be my first review back!I read THE ONE when it first came out and I've been DYING to do a review on it because I've been a fan since like day two of THE SELECTION release. Ha!Anyway, I [...]

    10. Team MAXON!!!!!!!!!!! Omg the name is out and it is awesome. The c-c-c-c-COVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it. is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *super happy dance*Update in the middle of book:The feeelllllsss and OMGJust finished the book, good ending but the feels, this book made me cry so much. It's killing me!

    11. It had some flaws, but as far as series finales go, it was actually rather satisfying! This series is super addictive, and even though I was frustrated a lot, I was also totally invested in the story--I laughed, I cried, I gasped out loud, I shook the book (pretending it was America). This series isn't too deep, with more focus on the romance plot than the dystopian plot, but it's still gripping and extremely entertaining, like a good reality TV show. If you're looking for something fast-paced a [...]

    12. EDIT: May 6th, 2014Well, The One is finally out today and I'm not sure when I'm going to get to read it, but hopefully it will be very soon! However, I did get a chance read the first 10 chapters at unlocktheone and it has made me even more skeptical than I already was, but I guess I'll have to wait see! Also, I would be really grateful if you guys wouldn't post any spoilers for The One in the comments of this review, or if you do at least tag them as such, because I do read all of them and have [...]

    13. Read my full review @A Perfection Called Books It's non-spoilery and gif-filled! All right. Enough is enough. I need to stop putting off writing this review. Maybe I feel that writing this review will truly mark the end of this series. And you know what? I don't want it to be over. This book gets a five star rating for so so many reasons. Ok so this book was not flawless. There were so many things that totally made up for it though: the plot, the romance, the characters, and the ending. Here are [...]

    14. Rating: 1.5 StarsSPOILERS. Please read on if you 1. Have no intention of ever reading this book (good for you) 2. Have read the book (my condolences)3. Just want to see me rant about sleazy men and brainless women (isn't that why we're all here?)The One. This title can mean so many things, but let me tell you what it means to me. It is the one book in this series that got a higher rating than a 1 from me, mostly because of an ending that completely surpassed my expectations of wtfery. It is a st [...]

    15. Let's pretend this never happenedCan't believe I read the whole series but I can now move on with my life.I couldn't stand the main character nor the love triangle. At least in this book, there was less girl-hate. The whole series could have been one book!Still I did read them all.

    16. EDIT 18/11/2014: Did anyone else read the second epilogue on the website?What the crap? Did Cass write it? It sounded like fanfiction. Really bad, bland fanfiction. Booooo. And, really, it was to be expected they'd have a kid, right? Couldn't that have been put in as a flashback thing in the next book? And maybe written with a bit more love? No? Okay.WARNING: Major ranting ahead. I will be swearing, screaming and butchering this book like there's no tomorrow. If you don't want to hear the rants [...]

    17. I'd give this book a few more stars if I didn't find the main character and most of her decisions and actions extremely annoying and stupid. Seriously, who even thought writing a heroine like America Dumbhead Singer was a good idea? The only thing I like about her, is her boyfriend (singular, not plural *cough cough*). Actually, just pretend this one solitary and miserable star is all for Maxon because he deserves the world. *mouths desperately* protect him.

    18. Siendo honesto, no ha sido el mejor libro de la saga, que es algo que todo el mundo me decía. Es bueno, sí, y tiene muchísimas cosas que podrían hacerlo el mejor, pero le ha faltado algo que tenía The Selection y que este no tiene ¿Quizá esa magia propia de la saga? No sé. En cualquier caso, eso no quita que tenga las cinco estrellas porque me esperaba un final superhappy. Y no ha sido para nada asíRA NADA.Me han gustado muchísimas cosas, desde la evolución de America hasta los incre [...]

    19. I think I may have liked this the best out of the three. America was still obnoxious, but I've come to expect that, so maybe I got more used to it? I liked Maxon more BUT still obnoxious. Every character in this book is obnoxious to some degree.The ending was great, for me. I got real emotional at one part and was NOT EXPECTING THAT because I don't really love these characters, but I guess I grew to like them? I don't even know.I wish more had been done with the rebels and other relationships in [...]

    20. The One (Abridged Lisa's Edition) BEWARE: This is a very "interesting" plot. If you're easily offended by fan fiction, don't read this. American (A): I choose you, Maxon! I really do! Forget about Aspen. I believe that the castes should be eliminated, but I like you. So let's just take it SLOW but get married first because everyone needs to know who you choose. Maxon (M): Oh, Darling! Let's get married. GO CELESTE. My fiance doesn't want you here! I hate you, Natalie. Now please get lost. A: Oh [...]

    21. OMG. I don’t even know where to start with this one. I am an emotional wreck after reading this book. An absolute wreck.America was herself to the best of her ability again in this book. She did make some stupid decisions at times, but I was nice the way she managed to uphold her integrity, and it was nice to see the way she realised her feelings for Maxon, even if she wouldn’t share them with him!Maxon, was just, ahhhhh, Maxon ♡ Loved him!( Although I have to say that continuing to snog o [...]

    22. I CAN'T EVEN---!!!ALL THE FEELS. I'm crying with JOY!!!I can't give this book less than 5 stars because I got what I wanted. Sure, the world building is as poor as it has always been in this series, but GOD, the romance was so BEAUTIFUL. I finished this book in less than one day because it was so easy and fast to read! It has a huge amount of drama and it had me hooked till the very end! I think I liked America better in this book than in the other books. She was more decided and she made choice [...]

    23. AFTER READ: I'm pretty content with the end of this series. Review to come.-----------WOWWW THE COVER! I am so in love.All I want is a royal wedding between Maxon and America, okay. That's it.

    24. NO this is not over! I need more, so many questions unanswered, so many things I want to know!! What happens to Maxon and America?! <3 How many sexy babies will they produce?! Will Aspen & Lucy get married?! Was there a funeral for the Queen and King?! OMFG. What happened to the rebels?! Was Celeste's funeral glamorous?! Why didn't America seem so sad about it?! What would happen if that rebel attack didn't occur at the end?! Would he still have married Kriss?! WHAT THE HELL!!! I NEED TO [...]

    25. 8 May 2014You know what the biggest problem is with this book?It is a little random.There is no way to explain without going into details and giving out spoilers, so I'll refrain from that. Let's just say that events and transitions were not as smooth and seamless as they could be. I should give a nod to the author's attempt of improving on her art, though.While I really appreciate the way Cass tried to remedy the girl-on-girl hate and develop the girls' friendship into a more sisterly and produ [...]

    26. This review is SAFE and SPOILER FREE!The One is book three in The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I first want to say that I fell in love with this series right away in book one. So, I did not anticipate that I could fall MORE in love with its final book but that is exactly what has happened. As soon as I started reading it, I was pretty much useless for anything else. I tried today to accomplish a few other things but couldn’t concentrate on anything until I finally gave up and just read!Oh A [...]

    27. Cover reveal! Who gave you the right to be so beautifulI love this cover much more than the other ones because America looks fierce and confident. Whatever she wants, she'll get it. EDIT 4/25/13*dances* I got it riiiigghhtttt I got it riiighhtttt But now I have to wait until the weekend to get my finished copy of The Elite. Let's play a game! It's called GUESS THE TITLE.Alright, here we go The RoyalCredit to Karo for this oneThe OneThe ChosenThe EndI'm bad at names but I really like THE ONE beca [...]

    28. Aunque me sigue pareciendo una historia con mucho relleno y muy superficial, tengo que reconocer que es ha sido mi favorito de la historia. Porque aunque tiene todo eso, también tiene bastante acción y unas buenas sorpresas en la trama.Siento que este es el libro donde América, Maxón y Aspen me cayeron mejor, incluso las decisiones de América me sorprendieron bastante.
