    "You know how your mother and I met," Dad began.I rolled my eyes. "Everyone does. You two are practically a fairytale." We've all heard of the term one hit wonder. The singer who blasted out a fantastic, million-pound selling single, but never sold anything else; the actor that was brilliant in that one film, but disappeared off the scene immediately after; the model that did that great campaign, but never modelled again. It's a pretty common thi...

    Eadyln is definitely not America. And I could not be happier.Thank you, Cass, for giving me a princess I can root for. I read the Selection series for Maxon (who didn't?) and it was refreshing to find myself drawn toward the protagonist for once. Now, some people are going to hate her. Eady comes across very spoiled and selfish at first glance, but whereas America was wishy-washy and driven by a constant state of indecision, Eady knows what she w...

    So, I didn't like this book as much as I liked the first 3 books. I think that's because Eadlyn was insufferable and I wanted to punch her EVERYTIME. She's bratty, spoiled and whenever someone disagrees with her, she tells them she'll be the future queen (as if they have to shut up for that reason). I don't really hate her, but I don't like her at all.At first I didn't like any of the selected boys and I had a hard time remembering who was who, b...

    YOU GUYS. Is it possible that a book could be WORSE than The Selection, with an even more dreadful heroine, with even more terrible worldbuilding? Can such a thing happen? I know you fall asleep each night wondering. WONDER NO MORE. The answer has arrived. Yes. Yes, such a book can exist! And it is this one.ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?First, it is worth noting that on top of the problems that plagued earlier books in this series, this book has spectac...

    “I only have one heart, and I’m saving it.” Why do I always finish these books in tears?Okay, so it’s no secret that I loved the Selection books, and I have to admit, that I loved this one too Eadlyn was a character that at times came across as bratty, selfish, and totally full of herself. But then she’d do something that would make me laugh, or something so outrageous whilst totally owning it, and I totally fell in love with her. Sure ...

    My blog: http://reading-is-dreaming-with-open-..."You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most importantly, you can be queen and still be a bride."If I had to say one word about The Heir, I'd go with underwhelming. It was not a bad book but I just couldn't like it as much as I did The Selection. Even at the best parts it couldn't live up to the previous books and I mainly blame the narrator for that. Eadlyn ha...

    Sigh. I'm a little disappointed in this edition to The Selection Series. I don't know what I was truly expecting when I picked this up but this wasn't it. This probably wont be one of the longest reviews, but that's because I don't have much to say. Overall I don't even feel like this edition needed to be written because it really didn't add anything that wasn't already there.Eadlyn the heir to the throne and our leading lady, is a total bitch. I...

    SPOILER FREE REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKp3q...I'm sad that I can't honestly give this 5 stars. It's sitting in between a 4.5 and 4 right now, leaning more towards the 4.I actually enjoyed Eadlyn. Sure she was a brat, but she was kind of starting to realize that and trying to grow out of it. I loved that the family played a big role in this book. Loved seeing Maxon (obviously) and even America. I also enjoyed that there's not really...

    I was going to be queen, and a queen could be many things . . . but vulnerable wasn't one of them. I have no problem with female characters having an ego. Everyone can have one, right? You can be awesome, and I'll be cool with that. What I hate - what I can't stand, is a person who treats others like shit for no reason, and this beautiful princess named Eadlyn managed to get on my nerves every damn second of my read. Bratty, spoiled and immature...

    WTF did I just read?I was so excited to finally get my hands on The Heir!! I bought a hardcover copy with its GORGEOUS cover, just like the other three. I couldn't wait to finally meet Eadlyn Schreave and the rest of Maxon and America's sexy babies. Although the Selection Series should've ended with The One, I was still pretty hyped about the fourth book, The Heir, because well... KIERA CASS IS LIFE. ♥ && Sweet Baby Jesus, AMERICA AND MAXON. Ah...

    I'm loving Eadlyn's character development so far! Can't wait for the next one!

    *This review contains spoilers from the other 3 books, The Selection, The Elite, and The One.*I'd also like to make something clear here.This isn't for anyone to get offended by okay. If you loved this book and you think this one is better than the rest, okay, good for you. I don't mean to rant about everything and Eadlyn the whole time but this book just wasn't for me. I'm sorry if you get offended. If you think you will get offended by reading ...

    “I only have one heart, and I'm saving it.” 3.5/5 starsSo The Heir was incredibly entertaining and Eadlyn(what a stupid name) is slightly less annoying than America(which is still too much).This 4th installment is really cheesy. Kiera Cass gushed over America's and Maxon's happily ever after relationship. We get it, they are perfect for each other, soul mates, etc.The protagonist is a strong female character and I like that she kicks ass. T...

    The Heir is book four in the series The Selection by Kiera Cass. I, like so many others, thought this series was going to end with the final book of the trilogy. I was happily surprised when I learned the series would be continued. I have been addicted to these books from the beginning and I loved this new book.It’s been twenty years since the end of the last book. America and Maxon’s first children were twins, Eadlyn and Ahren. Eadlyn was bo...

    3.5 stars I could totally understand why many readers think this entire series is a very weak sort of dystopia. I can’t blame them because this kind of is and this installment is no exception.But a closer look at the series provided me with the realization that Kiera Cass is one of the bravest authors out there.I bet everyone will agree with me that dystopia and fairy tales aren’t the best of friends, not even polite colleagues but the author...

    official rating 2.5 I have to say I'm really disappointed in this book, the selection was one of my favorite reads of 2014 despite the fact that America is extremely whinny and annoying. But for her daughter, HA! She's just spoiled and mean, for that I have zero tolerance on it. In addition, the plot was extremely dull... Nothing happens. Nevertheless as much as I dislike this book, I would still be reading the next one. For some reasons thi...

    “You know how your mother and I met,” Dad began.I rolled my eyes. “Everyone does. You two are practically a fairy tale.”If you thought America was annoying in the original trilogy, then wait to meet Eadlyn. She's America's daughter and heir to the throne of the ridiculous kingdom of Illéa.The first thing you need to know is how unfair life is for Eadlyn. Her parents just disolved the law that said that the male firstborn was going to be ...

    "You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most importantly, you can be queen and still be a bride." Highly entertaining, unpredictable, and royally fabulous. This book nailed what a highly enjoyable sequel should be. I like this book as a whole. The only downside I found was Eadlyn's attitude. *smirksI have to admit I had a hard time liking Eadlyn at first because she's bratty, spoiled, and quite obnoxious but...

    *WARNING, SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST THREE SELECTION BOOKS WILL BE PRESENT.*Edit: Okay, now looking back on this/reading this review again, I think my rating for this book is more of a 2.5/5 stars, but I will still give it the 3/5 on goodreads.So, after waiting a little less then a year after the original trilogy ended, the unexpected fourth book, The Heir, has been released. And a lot of people who have read the books may be wondering if this book i...

    And the next thrilling installment of "shut up and take my money"Seriously, though, I wasn't expecting a continuation of the series and wouldn't have assumed there was much pretense for another Selection to take place. Nonetheless, it is interesting to see it from the other side of the coin - "dating" dozens of strangers simultaneously while weighing your personal life against your professional life.Eadlyn will undoubtedly rub people wrong, espec...
