  • Lauren Kammerdiener
    "I'm telling you, Eady, wars and treaties and even countries will all come and go. But your life is yours, singular and sacred, and you should be with the person who makes it feel that way every blessed second you live it." First, I would like to thank every person who has liked or commented on this review in the past year or so. This much of a response is unheard of for me. Almost every day, a few more people like it, or someone else actively ad...

    THIS WILL BE A RANT.It's a 2.5. The thing is... I enjoyed the book, but OMG, I'm just not buying anything that happened at the end! REALLY? So now Eadlyn gets to make whatever change she wants in the kingdom, she doesn't have to get it approved or even discussed with the council, nope, she just gives the surprise announcement and that's it! WHAT! That's not how a country works! Maybe Illéa has to respect everything she decides, but there will ob...

    EDIT: 13/01/2016 I hate how gorgeous the covers for this series are. I want to smush them to my face and declare my eternal love for them.
  • Andreea Pop
    I'm gonna put it bluntly out there -- I did not like The Heir. I consider it one of my greatest literary disappointments, even if it has a relatively high rating (2.5 stars). So my expectations of The Crown were along the lines of 'please be decent, please end quick and please be the last '. Most fortunately though, The Crown brought back the love I felt for Kiera Cass's novels made of syrupy romance and dreamy sighs. Taking this into considerat...

    I don't understand, I thought it was just a trilogy... Why are there suddenly two more books added. Update : I have read The Heir and I must admit that I actually quite enjoyed it, so looking forward to this one.Update #2 : :)

    ❝Finding a prince might mean kissing a lot of frogs. Or kicking a lot of frogs out of your house. Falling might mean running headfirst into something you always wanted. Or dipping your toe into something you've been scared your whole life. Happily ever after could be waiting in a field a mile wide.❞ Rating: {★ ★ ★}This was an okay ending to Eadlyn's part of the story in The Selection series. I was never really a fan of The Heir or Eadl...

    Warning: My review contains spoilers. [ I added spoiler tags as many as I can... but you might guess what happens in the end based on my rating]The Crown continues as Eadlyn Schreave temporarily takes over Illea after the stressful things happened on the previous book. Taking the opportunity and experience is part of her lesson to fully become the next Queen. It's challenging on her part especially when The Selection is on going. Finding the rig...
  • Mariah of the Night Court
    SO DISAPPOINTED***Contains Spoilers***Kiera Cass seriously did not put that much effort in her last installment in the Selection series. The other books were great, especially the first three, but kind of lost their touch when Eadlyn was introduced. The Crown was so dry. It was like this...Perfect comparison.I really do not like Eadlyn as a character at all because she has no personality! All I hear out of her mouth is awkward, out of place dialo...
  • Hailey (HaileyinBookland)
    SPOILER FREE REVIEW: one was a good improvement on The Heir. Eadlyn was a huge brat in the previous book, but she comes to some self realization in this book that makes her change her ways. I liked that with The Heir and The Crown you truly never really know who Eadlyn is going to end up with. With first three books of The Selection Series, you always kind of know who Maxon is going to choose, but thes...

    The Crown is book five in The Selection series by Kiera Cass. This series has captivated me from the beginning. For me, it’s one of the most visual series I’ve ever read. Is it the girly girl in me that loves the gowns, the jewels, the pomp and circumstance? No matter the reason, I’m a fan, and I love the way Kiera Cass wrapped it all up. Eadlyn has grown up. This book holds a very different Eadlyn than you met in the beginning. This young ...

    OMG OMG OMGGGGGGG TIENES QUE LEER ESTE LIBRO Y TODA LA SAGA YA La Corona, cuarta y última parte de la saga La Selección o segunda parte de la bilogía secuela de la trilogía la Selección. Sea como sea, novela que concluye el ciclo que abrió la Selección y que se ha hecho con el pedacito que quedaba disponible de mi corazón. La Corona es una novela totalmente a la altura del resto de la saga, con unos giros totalmente inesperados y que, sin...

    So... this book was a great reminder of how weak the story & characters got at the end of The Selection series and HOW MUCH BEAUTIFUL COVERS CAN DISAPPOINT ME.I genuinely liked the first part of Eadlyn's story in The Heir, but there really was no plot arc in this sequel. It just plowed straight through in a bland line to the end. Everyone's character was reduced to some empty shell with dialogue... I can't even properly rage about how infuriating...

    “Maybe it's not the first kisses that are supposed to be special. Maybe it's the last ones.” The Selection : ★★★The Elite : ★★★★The One : ★★★★★The Heir : ★The Crown : ★★Don't mind taking your time with this one. It won't be a review of me ranting about Eadlyn and how stubborn and foolish and rude and spoiled she is. Or was I guess...I'd like to start off by saying I hated The Heir. I'm sorry, but if you've read m...

    “Maybe it's not the first kisses that are supposed to be special. Maybe it's the last ones.”I have finally finished The Selection series. It was about time.A few years ago when I read the first book I loved the story. Then came the second book and it went downhill. After The One I passionately hated America. And then I found out that this still wasn't enough and I had to read about her daughter! Who would only be more spoiled and vain and sel...

  • Isa Cantos (Crónicas de una Merodeadora)
    Cada que leo un libro de Kiera Cass mi corazón muere un poquito. La cantidad de sentimientos que logra producirme esta mujer con sus palabras, sus personajes y las situaciones que ellos viven es increíble y me deja deseando vivir en el palacio de Illéa junto con Maxon, America, Eadlyn y sus seleccionados.Si bien entiendo las razones por las que muchas personas odian un poco La Heredera y La Corona, para mí fueron libros preciosos (no tanto co...

    WONDERFUL! What a spectacular ending....I don't know what to do with myself now !

    Minor spoilersMajor rantSo I read through this in one sitting but I did not like it. I found it boring and the romance was so rushed and came out of the blue. By halfway through the author still had me guessing on who Eadlyn, our stupid useless heroine, would choose. She had guys coming from far and wide just for her to "pick". Load of bull. I just taught Eadlyn's story was pointless. I am sure these two books would have been so much better if Ma...

    *THIS BOOK WAS NOT OKAY FOR MY BRAIN AND I"M JUST GOING TO START OFF BY RANTING.*So, as you can see, my brain can't work for two reasons-Number one: This book was just TERRIBLE. I just.....I can't......And...Number 2: It's 10:30 in the morning and we all know for lazy teens like me, I need my beauty rest but I just couldn't lay my ass down in bed and do nothing, SO HERE I AM.Now, with my little update of my miserable life, here i go.Eadlyn was ju...

    Spoilers have been tagged but if you've read my review of THE HEIR, the outcome of THE CROWN will be spoiled nonetheless. 2.5 starsDisappointed is an understatement. Where's the romance?! As a huge fan of The Selection trilogy, I was ecstatic when Kiera gave us 'The Heir' as a spinoff story. I was really disappointed with Eadlyn's characterization but she showed room for growth and I prayed she would get it together in 'The Crown'. While she did...
    5 Absolutely Fantastic ★'s "I had power and no idea how to use it. I was a ruler who didn’t know how to lead. I was a twin who was on her own. I was a daughter with missing parents. I had a half dozen suitors and wasn’t sure how to be in love. " “It was a delicious feeling, falling in love. I'd had so many luxuries in my life, and I thought I'd had a taste of this before, but I realized now it was merely a cheap imitation of something n...

    This review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books.The Selection series is my guilty pleasure.If you've never read the series, it's essentially The Bachelor/The Bachelorette set in a dystopian future and with royalty.  I also suggest you stop reading this review if you haven't read the series as there are spoilers for the first four books here.The Heir (Book #4) takes place twenty years after the first three books and we find ours...

    ***4 "Happily Ever After" stars*** “Trust your gut. Trust your heart.”“I’m terrified of my heart.” I didn’t mean to say those words out loud, but there was something about him that made this room, and this moment, the only place I could ever admit to the truth.He leaned down by my ear and whispered, “There’s nothing there to fear.” I'm a sucker for fairy tales...And i was almost obsessed with the first three parts of the serie...
