Goodreads Summary:
The Selection changed America Singer's life in ways she never could have imagined. Since she entered the competition to become the next princess of IllĂ©a, America has struggled with her feelings for her first love, Aspen—and her growing attraction to Prince Maxon. Now she's made her choice . . . and she's prepared to fight for the future she wants.

Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series!

My Review:
This series is probably one of my favorite series ever. Yes, there are parts of the book that are really annoying. Yes, the writing could be better. But I love these books and I love the storyline.

America drives me crazy sometimes, and in this book so did Maxon. They can't make up their minds! Yet somehow, despite that annoyance, I can't help but love them. They are great characters, and I found myself rooting for them the whole way through the book.

This book had more substance in that it included a lot more politics and things of that nature. I'm sure some people would love this in a book. I liked that it gave the plot a little bit more suspense, but overall I was not a fan. The other two books were pretty light reads, and I was expecting the same thing when I picked up the last book in the series.

There are many twists and turns in this book that definitely kept my interest. Overall, it is a great series that I would recommend reading.

4 stars


  1. I just marathoned this entire series recently, not knowing there was going to be a book 4. Wouldn't you know, I saw the title to the fourth book halfway through book 3 so then I knew how it was going to end. I was so bummed! But still, such a great series and I'm really looking forward to The Heir now too. :) Glad to see you enjoyed it too! Great review!

    1. Oh no! How sad that it ruined the ending for you. I hate that! Glad you enjoy the series. Hopefully The Heir will be just as good!
