nice.Gillian You don t.Gillian We re the same person, so you kind of just insulted yourself.Gillian I need to talk to you about The One You re the only one who understands me.Gillian Well, yeah, that s because I am y Gillian I REALLY NEED TO TALK TO YOU CAN YOU PLEASE JUST FOCUS.Gillian Sorry Proceed.Gillian So, that was a book A book that happened.Gillian Was it Was it, though Or did you hallucinate ninety percent of what occurred You did read it really late at night.Gillian This is a distinct possibility Though even my fever dreams tie up loose plot threads better than that.Gillian But you liked it You laughed I heard you Gillian I laughed when a major character died.Gillian Okay, but you laughed.Gillian A major character s death that has nothing to do with the plot, is not born of the plot even though it so easily could have been, does not change the plot that follows or the main character in any way, and is executed SO POORLY that I could only guffaw in sadistic glee.Gillian I think you might be a very evil person.Gillian It was basically a sadness intermission WE INTERRUPT THIS CORNY ROMANTIC SMOOCHERY TO BRING YOU SOME BREAKING SADNESS America hardly felt sad at all, and I got the feeling this part of the book was meant to be seeeeped in grieeeeef, and yet there was no grief to be found None And heart trouble HEART TROUBLE You kill off a major character in a series ender not through rebel shenanigans or anything, but HEART TROUBLE Gillian Don t even pretend you weren t devastated when SPOILER died at the end.Gillian Okay That actually got me FINALLY Kiera Cass writes an interesting character, and then she has to go and ruin everything with a COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS ENDING THAT COMES OUT OF NOWHERE WHEN THOSE STUPID REBELS DO THEIR STUPID REBEL THINGS AND IT MAKES NO DAMN SENSE AND OH MY GOD I m telling you This wasn t real.Gillian But what about the ship You like shipping.Gillian I do like shipping I don t like when characters change their minds and hearts abruptly from one book to the next I don t like it when a book has like fifteen cheesy declarations I like where Cass meant to take her characters in terms of growth and epiphanies, but I cannot believe the way she took her characters there One of the characters maintained a VERY STEADY position throughout both books, and poof Book three, totes changes their mind Because that happens.Gillian But you didn t want to stab America in this one Or even Asspen That s progress Gillian Wow, you re right I feel like I ve grown as a human being I no longer feel like committing fictional murder America is no longer a waffling, waifish wattle brain, and Asspen is less of a grunt grunt caveman, even though all of this growth occurs spontaneously in like the first chapter BUT THE PLOT.Gillian Oh, the plot wasn t that badGillian stares Gillian Okay It was that bad.Gillian Hot Freaking Mess There are two rebel groups Northerners, who are Capital G Good, because they e all YAY MONARCHY, and Southerners, who are Capital B BAD, because they want to shoot everybody and don t think the sun shines out of Maxon and America s royal behinds Maxon and America are like, Oh no We can t let the bad rebels win And then things happen that have nothing to do with their actions Asspen is somewhere in the background, being a noble ass Marlee pops in for ONE SCENE and then pops right back out Like um, thanks for visiting this supposedly epic series ender Thanks for participating Celeste the Bitch is abruptly and suddenly is humanized which, actually, yay The King continues to twirl his mustache, and the Queen continues to be the brainwashed victim of an abusive relationship who is canonized by every other character in the book.Gillian Okay, but that s not a plot.Gillian Don t be silly Of course it is There are romantical misunderstandings, pretty dresses, AMERICA IS A NOBLE HEEEEERO, Maxon what the fuck, ugh Asspen are you still here , REBELS REBELS THE REBELSSSS , did that really happen how did that happen, the endddd.Gillian That wait, is that a plot Gillian No It s not And those god damn sketchily assembled rebels and their stupid conflict I don t want to talk about it.Gillian Do you want to talk about how accidentally sexist this is And how SPOILER needs a girl he can protect and SPOILER needs a man to shield her and guide her And how these are held to be very, very good things Gillian No.Gillian Fair enough Do you want to talk about how stereotypically Asian Elise was made out to be, and that her life philosophy is apparently Honor to Us All , and how offensive it was when Kriss pitied her for it Gillian No.Gillian Should we bring up how the Palace security must be run by blind gerbils because that s the only way those fucking rebels could manage to get inside the fucking buildings six times a chapter Gillian No.Gillian Do you want to talk about how pointless and predictable it was that SPOILER and SPOILER were secretly Good Rebels even though nothing came of that information Gillian No.Gillian Well, we have to talk about something.Gillian No I don t want to You can t make me.Gillian It was your idea to talk in the first place Gillian I DON T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS ANYMORE.Gillian Should we talk about that cheesy ass epilogue Gillian HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA oh my god was that a glorious thing A comedic masterpiece, that was.Gillian You don t have to be mean about it.Gillian I EARNED THE MEANNESS, BUDDY I bought this with my MONEY.Gillian As opposed to buying it with your couch Gillian Shut up I have no brains left after that This book did not fit with the rest This book did not feel like the continuation of the plot set up in anemic book one and frustrating book two I couldn t even get mad at this book because I didn t believe this book Not one freaking word of it Gillian Look, no one forced you to read this series.Gillian MAXON DID STUPID MAXON AND YOUR STUPID ENDEARING LAMENESS Why do I care so much about you Why are you doing this to me Why were you a flip flopping mess in this book Why are there plot holes so large you could drop a truck or a 747 or California through them Gillian But Cass kind of did a Red Wedding thing there That s um, that s something, right Gillian Fungus is something Sunburns are something That ending is something.Gillian That was way harsh, Tai.Gillian LOOK Endings, particularly to series, need to COME FROM SOMETHING They can t just randomly happen and then conveniently the people who need to die for there to be a HEA die and then somehow that magically fixes EVERYTHING and NO When George R R Martin kills people, he does it to complicate the plot Not to just have it happen Not to resolve things NOT AS AN ENDING And then there s the fact that the action is SO CLUNKY, so unrealistic, so poorly described, that i just laughed laughed because it lasted so long and some people could free and others bled out under tables and America did nothing and oh god horrible action scenes are horrible.Gillian You should really breathe between rants.Gillian I CAN T EVEN.Gillian Do you want to talk about the cliches Gillian There was a cheesy death fakeout There was a cheesy Save yourself Live and be happy scene There was a cheesy letter written from beyond the grave full of wisdom and truth It was an endless avalanche of cliche America and Maxon are the only non cardboard characters The worldbuilding is nonsense The writing is clunky, amateurish, and obvious I need a drink I need several drinks.Gillian Yes, but that s been true since the beginning, and yet you still read them all Even those novellas.Gillian I once described this series as being like a deep fried Oreo, and it s mostly still good It sounds like a better idea than it is, it has this weirdly addicting, saccharine sweet junk food quality, and it has zero nutritional value But then this third book happens and it s it s just it s so bad I can t even find an accurate food metaphor A tomato and marshmallow smoothie.Gillian I just vomited.Gillian An appropriate way to end this

    3.8 5 Stars Break my heart Break it a thousand times if you like It was only ever yours to break anyway I had the lowest of the low expectations for this book I wanted to throw The Elite out of the window I wanted to throw this one out of the window too But I was less inclined to I still firmly believe this trilogy could have been a duology, even one book without all the redundant political situations that weren t even portatryed right I was satisfied with the ending, it was 3.8 5 Stars Break my heart Break it a thousand times if you like It was only ever yours to break anyway I had the lowest of the low expectations for this book I wanted to throw The Elite out of the window I wanted to throw this one out of the window too But I was less inclined to I still firmly believe this trilogy could have been a duology, even one book without all the redundant political situations that weren t even portatryed right I was satisfied with the ending, it was predictable, cheesy, far fetched, too neat, but solid The time has come for one winner to be crowned.When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown or to Prince Maxon s heart But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls growvicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose and how hard she ll have to fight for the future she wants.America Oh gurl, you re still annoying as balls But you know YOU RE LESS ANNOYING HERE BECAUSE YOU FINALLY MADE A DECISION WITHOUT PROCRASTINATING I was truly annoyed by how fast her decision was made Like they got into the roof, it was raining, romantic chick flick shit, rainbows and cupcakes and then she s like MAXON I LOVE MAXON ASPEN IS NOTHING TO ME Like The previous book was 325 of your fucking conflict and here we are, in the first 50 pages, you decide which one you want out of the blue This shit was not gradual and believable at all And she didn t even explain to Aspen that she didn t choose him She kept him by because she didn t want to get nothing out of this experience I ain t lying She said so herself What if Maxon picks someone else I can t walk away from this with nothing At least if Aspen still thinks there s a chance, maybe we could try again when everything s over WTF WAS THIS LINE THIS WAS THE WORST, MOST SELFISH LINE IN THE ENTIRE BOOK After everything her and Aspen went through, she owed him an explanation She basically manipulated both boys, and she kept thinking she had them in her grasp She was the one doing the choosing, of course The boys were just her meals When Maxon started showing interest in Kriss, she started losing her shit Aspen kept being loyal to her, waiting for her stupid ass to make a decision and she kept him at bay if she needed a boy after all this SHE IS SO SELFISH I WANT TO PUNCH HER TO DEATH The politics What in the fuck of fuckity fuck Nothing made sense Apparently, in this world there are good rebels and bad rebels The good rebels just infiltrate the fucking castle, break shit, and are considered good No biggie Then they infiltrate the same castle, again, this time ready to talk, and the fucking heir to the throne just lets them there To talk, in peace Like IN WHICH UNIVERSE WOULD THAT HAPPEN Also, America making kingly related deals with the princess of Italy, in the presence of a good rebel, about passing actual WEAPONS WHICH CAN KILL PEOPLE to the good rebels What authority does America have with this situation With what jurisdiction does she demand the Italian government to give off WEAPONS WHICH CAN KILL PEOPLE to a group of good rebels, which of course, have good intentions but still infiltrate the castle like it s no biggie I m so confused guys I know nothing about politics but this shit is crystal clear how ridiculous it is MOREOVER America, so graciously decided to sneak out of the castle, with the crown prince of the kingdom, with the assistance of her ex boyfriend, to go and meet the good rebels, risking their lives When they could have sent them a message, easily done THIS WAS THE MOST STUPID PLOT ARC OF THE BOOK BECAUSE OF ALL THE BOOKS THAT EXIST And then she got shot Typical And then Aspen had the amazing idea to take them all into his room, with love letters from America floating around Typical When Maxon saw the note, I was 48758437859048390% certain this was the way he would find out It wasbelievable than the way it actually happened, but also stupid af The whole I will wear the sluttiest dress in the universe and seduce Maxon the way Celeste does WAS SO STUDID My little dear friend America, Maxon is head over heels for you, you already know that, so why would you try to become a different person to seduce him If you would just EXPRESS YOUR REAL FEELINGS TO HIM, he would do anything you wanted You have just admitted to yourself that you love him in the rooftop scene, and you decide to procrastinate telling him for what Aren t you sure you re in love with him Are you indecisive again In this book, you had a certain target, which was Maxon, and you withheld the information from him that you love him For what DRAMA I guess this book wouldn t exist if they were honest with their feelings But the romance aspect in this book is done so poorly, I m so frustrated At least, in the final book, she picked Hallelujah.Celeste s redemption arc, was totally unexpected and totally fake Yes, I was certain there was a person underneath all that bitchiness BUT HOW CAN A SINGLE CONVERSATION CHANGE ONE PERSON S ENTIRE PERSONALITY America found her crying because her reputation in the contest was tarnished compared to hers, then America has a talk with her about some feminist shit, and here we go Celeste is an entire different person with an entirely different personality THESE THINGS DON T HAPPEN She might have started to treat America and the girls better and she became a goody good character She lost everything that made her Celeste And then she killed her off Typical Ugh, why can t this writer handle character development well Everything is a mess.I don t get how everything went so smoothly with Aspen He has been in love with America for years, actively fighting for her for two books, and in this book, just because America chose who she wants to be with without even informing him he backs away and doesn t fight for her Wtf is going on And when did he and Lucy become a thing They are at the point of saying I love you to each other We saw nothing of that When did they have the time for this to happen I don t understand anything Also, Maxon realises, just by America being close to Aspen for God s sake, that he was her previous love Ok Understandable But his reaction was so unMaxonlike Again, Cass s problem with characters He was so cold, a man who has declared his true devotion and love to America, in person and in writing, would just marry someone else without letting America explain the situation THIS WHOLE SITUATION IS JUST DUMP AND I M SO CONFUSED AND I DON T UNDERSTAND JACK SHIT AND KIERA CASS DOESN T KNOW JACK SHIT ABOUT PERSONAlItIES AND RELATIONSHIPS AND HERE S THE TEA These two people are supposed to run an entire country now Good luck with that The bad rebels are actually a threat now They have infiltrated the castle a gazillion times before, killing some guards only, and now because it s the ending and it s convenient, they are deadlier and they kill off like 5 of the main characters Wow I don t know what else to say I said I wouldn t judge this series harshly, but I can t stand these situations now They are ridiculous The first book was very light hearted, reminded me of The Bachelor, cute characters, cute plot, but then it introduced all the politics which made no sense and tried to be a serious series That s what bothered me If it stayed a lovey dovey dystopian series, I wouldn t make this kind of review now, ranting about everything But now I have to, cause it s pretending to be a serious series No no no.Before the conclusion of this marvelous review, I need to discuss the ending Maxon had a cold and over the top reaction to America s past with Aspen and then when he gets hurt he has a warm af over the top reaction as well Ugh So unrealistic Two minutes ago you were like I hate you America, I don t want to speak to you again, I will marry Kriss and live happily ever after, basically fuck off and after the invasion he s like Oh America, my sweet love, I love youthan anything in the world, love love love, lovey eyes, heart emoji, love love U G H And then we got Aspen walking America down the aisle A S P E N Not her mum, not her sisters, ASPEN After this whole misunderstand, Maxon easily accepted his new queen s ex boyfriend to walk her down the aisle And Aspen of course didn t have any hard feelings Feelings linger guys, they don t just automatically go, just as this book suggests Or appear, for that matter I wanted to see a conversation between the three of them We never got this The ending was so neat and hasty and sloppy The love triangle was so prominent in the first two books, and we didn t get a conclusion I m so mad.To sum it all up, you see I gave this book almost 4 stars and I wrecked it in this review I will tell you why I STARTED READING THIS BOOK AT 2AM AND I FINISHED IT AT 7AM Ok These books are like junk food They re bad for you but they taste so good These books are like Glee You love to rant about them You love to scream about them, about how frustrated and annoyed they make you feel, about how ridiculous everything that s happening is My order for these books is 1 The Selection2 The One3 The EliteThe Elite was redundant and it contained no plot, The Selection was the introduction, it was cute and America wasn t annoying and The One entailed plot, bad plot, but plot nonetheless and it gave me butterfly feels because my ship happened I will read the next book, you should expect a ranty review again, because I m sure this one will be bad too I know it s about their daughter and her own Selection and I ve heard she s insufferable I m sure you all are right, but, come on, we have suffered America, how bad can she be So, till the next one, K BYE

    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 appre 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 appreciated.I don t know how I feel about the ending Things wrap up a little too nicely, and I feel like there were some things that needed to be properly sorted out between our characters More of the flip flopping feelings, where the past just seems to have been unrealistically forgotten pulls hair I think that so much frustration could have been avoided if the characters had just thought things through and weren t so selfish Then that would have meant there wasroom for rebel tension goodness

    America, my love, you are sunlight falling through trees You are laughter that breaks through sadness You are the breeze on a too warm day. Cue the eye roll, this is definitely going to be one of those kind of books Break my heart Break it a thousand times if you like It was only ever yours to break anyway. Picking up where we left off, Maxon Schreave points for having the world s worst last name has to make a crazy hard decision And there we were, in the background of itAmerica, my love, you are sunlight falling through trees You are laughter that breaks through sadness You are the breeze on a too warm day. Cue the eye roll, this is definitely going to be one of those kind of books Break my heart Break it a thousand times if you like It was only ever yours to break anyway. Picking up where we left off, Maxon Schreave points for having the world s worst last name has to make a crazy hard decision And there we were, in the background of it all, holding on to one another The Perfectionist, the Sweetheart, the Divaand me. He has four choices left and only one will remain And that One will marry him and become the queen America is still in the competition, but as the crown draws ever nearer, she will have to come to the ultimate decision face her own demons and become queen or run away from it all forever.This one was definitely better than the last honestly, Cass could ve cut the entirety of book 2 and nothing would ve been missed but I still think it was missing far too much.The world building didn t feel nearly as fleshed out as I would ve hoped There s Southern Rebels and Northern Rebels but no one in the kingdom really knows what they want If they were truly a threat, wouldn t they be called terrorists Terrorist contains the connotation that the country is being attacked while rebel invokes feelings of freedom Also did the king give the rebels a spare key How do they break into the palace every other week How The queen competition just didn t feel realistic to me you would think that every girl chosen for this competition would ve been an excellent choice for queen after all, why risk anything but all the girls seem so flawed and ill suited to the task America, you are full of nothing but bad ideas Great intentions but awful ideas. America doesn t know anything about foreign policy, internal politics or even basic palace manners and yet she was chosen This girl doesn t even like to study is this really the girl you want in charge of the country I did like the ending it is very sweet and charmingit just took too far long to happen There was too much filler drama inserted just to keep the plot going Audiobook CommentsRead by Amy Rubinate who did a wonderful job with narrating this one Truly an excellent book to listen to.YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads Happy Reading

    I hate to say it, butit appears humanity peaked in 2014.Sure, it was before a lot of important things happened like me being active on Goodreads, or me trying Kraft Mac and Cheese Spirals for the first time, or other historic me centered events , but consider also in 2014 we were allowed to leave our houses Bliss.Also, books like this were the peak of literature.On the one hand, bummer, because this is not a very good read, but on the other hand, don t you wish you could go back to a time I hate to say it, butit appears humanity peaked in 2014.Sure, it was before a lot of important things happened like me being active on Goodreads, or me trying Kraft Mac and Cheese Spirals for the first time, or other historic me centered events , but consider also in 2014 we were allowed to leave our houses Bliss.Also, books like this were the peak of literature.On the one hand, bummer, because this is not a very good read, but on the other hand, don t you wish you could go back to a time when all you needed was a love triangle and a vaguely dystopian narrative to have a good time I want to go back to when this book would have been fun for me Instead of feeling like a low level punishment in a post apocalyptic society where the only literature is 78% girl hate and 22% half hearted character development to try to make up for it.Sigh.But I meanwho among us can t relate to the universal experiences of being a teen relayed in this book Like when you have four girlfriends whose entire life purpose is being constantly available to you until you fall in love with them and or decide they re the best strategic choice for a life partner.Or when you re not like other girls because all the cool girls think petty theft deserves public humiliation followed by lifetime imprisonment, but YOU RE like um maybe just an exorbitantly long time in jail quirkyOr when you have a secret second boyfriend but get mad because your other boyfriend had a crush in childhood he didn t tell you about.Or when you decide to spend a summer afternoon doing some light diplomacy at a tea party Just for sh ts and giggles.We ve all been there, you know While this book is very dumb and that s basically a fact at this point , it s not horrible or grueling to read or anything.But sometimes it is SO FRUSTRATING.Like 46% of America s personality is that she s poorer and less privileged than everyone else, but girl that does not come up when she can t be bothered to talk to her maids or orders them around It s really gross to read imo.Also, the previous books in this series are legitimately TEEMING, swamplike, withgirl hate than you can possibly imagine, and when there s finally one 1 moment where all the girls are hangin out and getting alongMaxon interrupts.Which, gag me with a spoon.But then when he apologizes for interrupting good, it s a bad thing you re here, Maxon, with all the charisma of the end piece of a loaf of bread , the girls saywait for itthat his presence actually is what made it amaaaaazing.Excuse me, I have to cringe for a month and a half.Bottom line Why did I reread this series I don t know See you when I reread and rant about the spinoffs sweet reliefreview to come 2 stars starting where i left off in this book when i last picked it up 2 years ago just to feel alive 3 years ago, i began a reread of this series that promptly went so terribly i stopped, presumably forever.but i m a glutton for punishment and having this high rating on my shelves is bugging me so let s finish what we started
