Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad! Very fast read, and a satisfying enough ending I think this was probably my favourite book of the main trilogy. I loved getting to know the Elite more personally, and actually ended up really liking Celeste in the end. What a surprise, right?? Although America definitely get a lot more annoying, and I quite liked her at first. I did think the ending was a bit abrupt though. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did not disappoint This book was a great continuation of the series. I didn't expect to see a different side of some of the earlier characters in the book. I was pleasantly surprised to see Celeste, Marlee, and Maxon painted in a somewhat different light than they had been in the first two books. It really helped to develop these characters and make them seem more real to me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My second least favorite book of the series America cannot take a desicion... She was too annoying in this book. In the first chapter, she said that she's in the palace for Maxon but she make out with Aspen, her ex-boyfriend. When she returns in her famiy house, she said to her sister that if she's eliminated, maybe Aspen and her can take a second chance in their relationship. WHAT?! America lets herself use Aspen as a stopgap.Not a good behaviour exemple for young girls.Plus, the end felt really rushed. I will recommend this one if you want to know how the series will be ended.The only thing i enjoyed was the action at the end of this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad ending but a little disappointed 3.5 stars. This ending was a slide downhill for me from the rest of the series. America has grown into a fine young woman. She's still very brave and has a fighting spirit. She doesn't give up easily and isn't afraid to bring about change. Her feelings towards her family is clear but her feelings towards Maxon is much more confusing. Aspen is also here to confuse everything even more. Maxon is still sweet as ever. He's attentive and princely. He is fit to be a great king. I thought he was also slow to admit his own feelings. However once he does, they seem to keep coming in a non stop stream. They make for a terribly confused and slow duo. Plot wise it wasn't very exciting to me. I can feel the author trying to build up suspense but I just didn't feel it. Overall a kinda satisfactory ending to the series but I seriously hoped for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfying conclusion! I really enjoyed this series overall and this book was did not disappoint me either. The only thing that I want to comment on that I wasn't quite as fond of was the love triangle. It seemed a bit forced, especially in The Elite, and how it was resolved in the end also seemed forced and rather quick. Apart from that, this is a well-done series. Nothing I would consider a great literary read, but great as a guilty pleasure kind of read.

Date published: 2017-06-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this book! I read this magnificent book about a month ago, and I'm so grateful that I did! The One is the thrilling conclusion to The Selection and The Elite. Throughout this pleasant story, America struggles to choose who she loves more; Prince Maxon, who she has finally found a place for in her heart, or her former love Aspen, who she still has feelings for, but soon realizes that even though he loves her dearly, he has feelings for one of her maids. Throughout this heart-warming novel, America stays strong and discovers who her heart belongs to, even through heart-shattering events that turn her world upside down and some major plot twists that could have potentially broken her heart and gave Prince Maxon second thoughts on who he loves if she hadn't of stayed strong. To find out who America vows her heart to, read this beautiful novel, as it is the last of America's amusing stories!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING This was such a beautiful and tear-jerking read that I devoured in under five hours. It's such a perfect ending to a perfect, adorable, intriguing series, and I was sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time reading this. There are so many great plot points and memorable moments; don't listen to everyone talking about how annoying America is! She's just a regular girl yet very intelligent and poised, and I can't help but look up to her musical skills. So romantic, so cute, and also a bit sad.
Date published: 2017-05-25
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Apparently this isn't the end of the trilogy This trilogy started off all fun and games and entertaining but now I'm just 100% done with it and I think it's because of America and her completely unfounded insecurities and how she just never gets over it. I also ended up with a bunch of questions about royalty and right to rule and what on earth this has to do with Maxon just being king on his own. Like why does he need to get married? What if he held off until his parents died and then never married? What would they have done, come back to haunt him? The ending was disappointing and predictable and this series should've ended here.
Date published: 2017-05-14
Rated 3 out of 5 by from An Ending that Pulls up Its Socks Somewhat I initially went into The Selection series believing it to be a trilogy and it wasn't until about halfway through The Elite that I found out about the spin off duology starring the end game pairings offspring and I have very mixed feelings about it. Mostly because I have mixed to horrible feelings about the original trilogy. I may read the duology, at some point, as it stands however I'm going to at least wait until the sequel to The Heir comes out. With that said, The One is definitely the stronger book out of the first trilogy. The characters were a little more proactive than in the first two books, a little less sitting around in pretty dresses in secret rooms while the world fought wars outside and inside the palace walls. I would have liked to know a little bit more about the rebellion a little earlier on in the series, but I suppose I'll have to take what I can get. The twist that the one of the leaders of the rebellion was Illea's founder's descendant was an unexpected but welcomed twist and I, honestly, wouldn't mind a spin off series of that group instead of that offspring spin off. A lot of America's self deprecating thoughts have receded some, much of the 'I'm just an ordinary girl not worth the love and attention of anybodies gaze' seems to have been shelved in favor of more action on America's part. It's a shame that it came two books in. I was still annoyed by the back and forth flopping between the two love interests, despite being clear who'd America would end up with. Lets face it, Aspen dropped out of being a contender the second he broke up with her in book one. I get that by him showing up again would stir up mixed feelings, add drama, but it's evident that he's still, relatively, the same person in book three, while America grew into someone more mature than who she was in the beginning. The book still has rather sexist undertones, only solidified by the short stories volume that was released recently, but that's a whole different book to get into and I'd rather just leave it at Happily Ever After suffering from a lot of the same disappointments from the main series. Still though, sexism is still runs rampant in The One. Perhaps The Heir fixes this? Maybe America steers Maxon in the right direction, after all, he doesn't want to be like his father. The ending was predicable and somewhat disappointing. Many people die, many people are paired off at, seemingly, random just so that they don't get in the way or wind up alone. None of which is bad, but I could see this coming from a mile away. On top of that, I really don't get Maxon's reaction to finding out who Aspen was and triggering his tantrum and completely rejecting America despite everything. Overall The Selection series wasn't great experience for me, wasn't completely horrible either, but at it's best I was mildly entertained.

While all of them have been quick reads, I found that once I picked this one up, I couldn't really put it down. I kept saying "okay Erica, you have things to do, you need to sop reading" and then next thing I know, it's 11:20 pm and I finished the book. While I wouldn't say there's mind blowing writing, plot or characters in these books, I will say I fell in love with them all the same and would recommend them. Oh and also, Maxon, enough said.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad ** spoiler alert ** It's was more then I expected. For someone who started off loathing this serious I was surprised that I was almost ... Satisfied? By the ending. Of course I had issues with some character development and relationship development, the way out there final climax an lack of wrap up (I think America diving to save Maxon from a bullet would have been a better way for them to get back together - prove her love but oh well.) I liked how she and Aspen faded out (though him confessing love to brushing her off so randomly was a bit weird) I liked that they weren't afraid to kill off characters and that the girls bonded in the end instead of always fighting for a boy. I wouldn't read it again and I would only recommend the series if for the last book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A mixture of The Hunger Games and The Bachelor... This book was a good, quick read and a good conclusion to the Selection series (well this era of the Selection anyway). I would not say that I felt extremely invested in the series but it has been an okay read and I will continue to read the next novels. For me, the best part of the book was the ending. It had the most excitement and finally allowed the readers to know who America truly loves. I know, the mystery can often be what keeps readers reading but I wasn't enjoying the love triangle because I didn't feel like it was fair to either of the men as America seemed to be leading them both on. In this novel, luckily, it clarified that situation. A good series and it's an interesting concept, almost a mixture of The Hunger Games and The Bachelor/Bachelorette.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST BEAUTIFUL! First, this cover is just freaking gorgeous and I have to say it's the same with the story. The One has just everything in it (with a lot of cheesy moments, but I just loved them) and you will not want to put it down. The best of the serie so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightfully Cheesey but Oh So Good. I don't want this series to end!! I absolutely loved it. Yes it is cheesey, and sometimes downright cringe-worthy, but I loved it. It only left me wanting more, which is exactly what Kiera Cass is going to deliver in The Heir!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED THIS! Kiera Cass has written a sweet, YA dystopian contemporary type of novel that to me was both original and delightful, and I was so happy with the ending she gave America's story. Plus I think this cover has to be the most beautiful of all of them, and definitely was a good choice for this awesome book. I feel that if Kiera Cass had set this series in a modern setting like most contemporaries it probably wouldn't have worked, but giving it the dystopian setting blended perfectly with the storyline, and I'm always a fan of Kiera's writing style!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Good Bad ending to series that was mediocre to begin with. The writing is average at best, the plot predictable, and the ending was very rushed with many details meant to tie up loose ends seeming almost thought up on the spot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YASSSSS!!! I just need a second to appreciate Maxon... okay I'm...I'm good. The conclusion to this series was but also wasn't predictable, it made you have to think about things that had happened earlier in the series. I absolutely love the relationship that is Maxon and America, and I recommend this be read.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good Bad ending to a series that was mediocre in the first place. I felt like many details were just added last minute to tie up some loose ends but it was not very well written, and the characters were very shallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish this series would never end! By far my favorite of the 3 books and I seriously wish I could read about their love story forever. Every girl looking for a good love story needs to read this. It's a super easy read, suspenseful and not what you would expect. This will be a series I read again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun but requires a suspension of disbelief So ends the Selection. The end of the story was predictable but I don't think one can hold that against the author as it isn't a genre of book that requires a shocking twist. Knowing there are two more books that are about America's daughter you had to know where it was going. In that way it is satisfying because you get the ending you are expecting. I liked the wrap up mostly. There were a couple of things that seemed like they were thrown in in the last 50 pages for "game of thrones" shock value. This series is great, light fluff. It doesn't require you to think too hard and it isn't emotionally hard to consume. I enjoyed it for those reasons. If you can read books without depth without getting angry and frustrated then you might enjoy this one. It requires a lot of suspension of disbelief.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enchanted Book Nook Review My Review: For me to have such an unsure opinion of the first book, I have definitely come to love it. In the third installment of The Selection  series, it's time for Maxon to finally choose his princess. Of course, that's easier said than done, since America still can't utter "I love you" to Maxon, and still feels as if he and Kriss are really meant to be. Not to mention that within three pages of this book, America wants to fix things with Aspen. Seriously? Even though she didn't want to be apart of the Selection, we all know that she is having some pretty strong feelings for Maxon, why mess that up? The last few chapters of this book had me feeling all sorts of stuff. I had to stop reading, walk away to deal with all the feels, and then finally come back to finish the book. Positive Elements: America makes some very unlikely friends, with a girl who has treated her horribly and friends with some Rebels. Negative Elements: There are some swear words sprinkled in the book, it's nothing to terrible, words you would hear on T.V. Kota is completely disrespectful and ungrateful at a time when his family needs one another, and only ends up upsetting the family. Spiritual Elements: America prays for Maxon. Other Thoughts: N-A

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The One I feel like this book was very easy to read and enjoyable (like the two others). If you can deal with America and her options, then I think you would like this book very much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Review from This is the Story of My(Reading) Life Nope. Nope. Nope. I do not get the appeal of this series. What is the point of it? Seriously. Everything about it is so childish. I was going to write a full review but than realized it would be pretty much be reiterating everything I said in my The Elite review. America is still as petty and indecisive as ever. Maxon is still cowardly and unappealing. And what the hell was the point of Aspen? I experienced so much eye rolling well reading that I'm surprised my eyes didn't get stuck. Cass finally decides to try and delve into the world outside of the castle and explain why the rebels are constantly attacking. I don't know why I was expecting to actually get some solid world building(maybe you could call me hopeful) but that obviously didn't happen. There's so many holes. And some "nice" outsiders just conveniently show up and offer Maxon and America the help they need. Without really wanting anything in return. Sure. That's exactly what so much about this last installment was, convenient. Every situation that America found herself in just seemed to have a convenient solution. A random character(s) would show up and offer her answers and help for no apparent reason. And than there were some deaths. Those deaths were obviously for shock value. They didn't resonate with me. They were forced, unnecessary and hey guess what else? Convenient. I understand the appeal of a Cinderella story. I'm a girl after all. I love me a Disney princess movie. But this trilogy just doesn't do it for me. The story, characters, and dialogue are just to fake and juvenile that I can't picture myself in America's shoes falling for Prince Maxon. What I can picture myself doing is shoving them all inside the castle and setting it on fire. Ridding the world of lack luster personalities. To harsh?
