The Selection Series by Kiera Cass (Some sort of a Book Review)

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

— inserts me daydreaming–

I wonder how it feels when I go get the chance to be one of the girls in the Selection. I wonder how it feels when the castle door is actually in front of me and Im with my servants. I wonder how it feel when Im with the Prince. Will I feel butterflies in my stomach like the other girls usually feel or just feel nothing like America.
Hmm. This book is really amazing. I just saw it on bookstores and I thought it was the ordinary Prince-Poor girl love story BUT no it wasn’t. After two months, I saw it again on one of my friend’s book recommendation and then I started searching for Ebooks.
The first night I read that, I was then hooked up with the book. I finished the First book which is The Prince. It was nice. Prince Maxon’s POV was awesome. I sometimes wonder how it feels to be one of the Royal Family? Is it something I should be proud of because I have wealth and I can nearly do everything or it’s just something.. something additional to life’s burden? Being a Prince is not an easy task. Maxon was manipulated by his father. Oh poor guy. 😦
Anyway highway, The Selection tells us of America Singer who was just forced by her mother to fill the forms for the Selection. America that time was inlove with Aspen. Then the selected girls were revealed and America was included!! Know what? I think Aspen broke up with her that time. So, she’s going to the castle with a brokenheart.
What’s nearly amazing about the book? Lady America is different with the girls. You know she was there not because she likes it or she likes the Prince or was after the money BUT she was there because she was chosen.
Later in the book, America meets Aspen, who turned out to be one of the palace guards. And then she’s starting to be friends with the Prince. Then Maxon got his first kiss and the girls were slowly becoming less.
You know I want to tell you everything but Im so tired of typing and I dont know where to start and what to put next.
Back with my daydreaming, I wonder how it really feels to be loved by someone despite your imperfections. (BIG WORD!) You know, Prince Maxon knew America — that she’s brokenhearted and was in love with someone, that she’s a four, and she’s not that girly like the others. Maybe, Prince Maxon was inlove of Lady America because she is herself. She’s brave, she’s not fake and she’s fighting for what she really believes.
In the last book, it was said there that America also loves Prince Maxon yet the Prince is still doubtful of America’s feelings.
America’s father died and when she came back? She was given with a portrait of a house. She thought she was given the portrait only BUT also the house in portrait! Oh my Maxon. You make me fall. 😀 ❤ And then the Elites, were down to two. America and Kriss.
Then Maxon saw America and Aspen together. Then he was mad at everything — jealous maybe. Because all those time, Aspen was the one who broke America’s heart.
The day of the announcement of whose going to be the next Queen if Ilea was asdfghjkl. I wonder how America felt when she was completely ignored by Maxon. She wanted to cry because she’s hurt but instead kept it. Then qwertyuiop, the rebel attacked and boom! Celeste was headshot and I totally cried because she doesn’t deserve that. I know she was a bitch for the first three books but in the end she was really kind, she was the second bestfriend of America, In the end, America thought Maxon died but he turned out to be resting at his new room (the King’s). Yes yup yohoraaaaat! 😀 Unfortunately,King Clarkson and Queen Amberly died during the attack but thanks God Maxon is saaaafe! ❤ And and and, he fvckingly chose America. So let’s cursy to the new Queen & King of Ilea. ❤ ❤

–There big revelations in the book though. You better see for yourself 🙂 🙂 Chao!

Little Mermaid –the ORIGINAL. <//3

She never married the prince. She never had her fish tail back. She never became as happy as she was in the kingdom before. She never had a good life. She never had her happy ending.

Disney.. Well, I grow up with Disney. It was part of my childhood. I won’t forget Mini and Mickey and Donald and Goofy and the princesses. I won’t forget Alice, Belle, Cinderella, Snow White and the Dwarfs. Well, I used to believe that princes and princesses really exist. Well they really exist but what Im trying to say is that I USED TO BELIEVE THAT EVERYONE’S STORY HAS A HAPPY ENDING. Who would thought that after so many long years, a prince would kiss Aurora then she woke up? That when Cinderella ran, a prince found her glass slippers and looked for her the following day? That a frog married a pince, that pumpkins can be turned to carriages aaaand a poor  maiden can marry a young maiden? Well, I used to believe in fairytales and happy endings but now? NO!

Im not going to tell you something about my lovelife here but Im just greatly devastated after I read the original story of Little Mermaid by Christian Andersen.

**There was this maiden who live in the bottom of the sea. She is the youngest and the most beautiful among five. Each year as they turned to 18 (was it really 18? I forgot) their grandmother would allow them to go to the shore and look to the surroundings above. When it was her turn, she admired everything – the surroundings, the boats EVERYTTTTTTTTHIING./ Until such time came, that the boat (rode by the Prince) was in great danger so she came to rescue. She saved the Prince’s life and before going away she kissed him and from afar she saw how the people came to help the prince. Then, I think she was really inlove with the Prince that she decided to go to the Sea witch. She sacrificed her voice for her to have legs but every step she made will be  very difficult because it feels like she’s walking under many sharp swords. And she can only be a mortal if she can make the Prince fall for her. The Prince met her but he never felt the same way she felt for him. The Prince loved her but as a sibling. Then the Prince was invited for a celebration to the other kingdom and he met a lovely Princess whom he thought was the maiden who saved him from the accident. They will be married the following day (if the Prince would be married with another maiden, the mermaid will die). The Mermaid’s sisters visited her and brought with them a knife. They told her that she need to kill the Prince in order to have her fish tail back. But she really love the Prince that she never choose to kill him. The Prince married the Princess and the mermaid died. <//3

**So yeah, my childhood was ruined >_< no happy endings.
