MISS VAIN Great reviews!:)

message 2: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Haha! A little long though. Oh, well.

Aly is so frigging bored Great review!! You determined me to add it, which is a lot to say about your review writing skills :D

message 4: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Oh, my. Has the word ended. She added a YA book to her TBR list! LOL HAHAHAHA!


Aly is so frigging bored I have some :D 4 or 5 I think :D

message 6: by MISS VAIN (new)

MISS VAIN Mariya, she's very shallow so since she likes the pretty cover she added it.:)

Not too long at all.

message 7: by Mariya (new)

Mariya LOL Hahaha! The pretty covers tempt us all! Hehehe! Okay. Good, not too long. I just wanted to explain a little bit about the book and also talk about the characters.

message 8: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Like by the ending, it made me re-think a little bit between the Maxon and Aspen thing, b/c OMFG! Aspen!!! Hahaha~! Then I was like damn. why did it have to end! So unfair!!!! ARRRRRGHHHHH! I'll send your book back like tomorrow on Wednesday, promise =DDDDDDD

And thank you sooooo much! If I do get The Last Echo from the publishers I'll definitely let you borrow as well.

message 9: by Mariya (new)

Mariya The ending was so mean! It wasn't a total cliffhanger, but it was to me! I want next one so bad! Haha. Hold on til you get your finished copy. I would have the same thoughts too! It was that good! I did that with a book once. I couldn't help it. But I added so many boo kmarks in the book it was embarassing! I couldn't part with the book. The Selection is definitely a keeper.

LOL I'm staying very far away of the five chapter pages. I'd probaly go insane wanting the next chapters ASAP! Hahaha!

Wendy Darling Hah, it's so funny to see the contrast in our reviews. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much, Mariya!

By the way--do you still have your ARC? I wanted to double-check a quote I posted and I'm wondering if I can bother you to have a look when you get the chance. It's no big deal if you aren't able to, but I just wanted to make sure I didn't misquote something.

message 11: by Ezmirelda (new)

Ezmirelda Before I kind of wanted to read this book. Now I REALLY want to read this book! Those two quotes made me go "Aww!" I definetely have to read this a.s.a.p!

message 12: by Mariya (new)

Mariya If I could I'd probaly write the whole damn book in my review as quotes. LOL

I have many more favorite quotes! But awwwww~! I adore Prince Maxon! Such torture that the book was only 330 pages. UGH! I NEED MORE! 8)

message 13: by Aparajitabasu (new)

Aparajitabasu check my review, we totally match with our views....totally Team MAXON at the moment.

message 14: by Olivia (new)

Olivia So far, it's team Maxon for me. Anyways, I loved the book, and the relationships you you see between other people. I mean there are things that could be improved, but this is only the second book that Kiera has published and I think it's quite being a nose-in-book person, i can do with them being longer =)

TEAM MAXON and u r so right about them being longer

message 16: by Alein (new)

Alein I agree with you completely! I most definitely want America with Maxon!

message 17: by Mandy (new)

Mandy I adore this book! So happy I got to meet the author and have her sign it for me!!! I am TOTALLY team Maxon!!! I mean Aspen kinda seems like a jerk to me after what he did that one night in the tree house... But I totally agree with your review fantastic book! I can't wait for the next one!(:

message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

i dont know why so many people gave this story bad reviews i loved it! i mean, i wish the story didnt end without them not knowing who won, but still. Team Maxon all the way! aspen had his chance..

message 19: by Mariya (new)

Mariya I feel like a lot of the 1 stars came from the author/agent/blogger drama that happened before the book came out, but honestly that doesn't stop me from reading a book I want to read and I don't feel bad for loving it, b/c it was awesome. Glad that the rating is slowly going up. It's almost fully at an average of a 4 stars! I really can't wait for the next book! And yes!!! SO many Team Maxon fans! ;))

message 20: by Erika (new)

Erika Agreed this book was amazing. People who one starred this book are Team Celeste.

message 21: by Kim (new)

Kim team Maxon...... all the way!

message 22: by Kate (new)

Kate Evans I hate Aspen!

message 23: by Sofia (new)

Sofia Theos If this is one of the best books you've ever read dear lord you mustn't read a lot.

message 24: by Mariya (new)

Mariya Excuse me, I do read quite a lot and everyone has their own tastes in books. :P

message 25: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Engstrom I agree with you one hundred percent. I completely ship America and Maxon. I HATE ASPEN. I also read A LOT so don't feel to let down by the comment left saying you should read less. Nobody, ever, needs to read less. Well, anyway, great review. Loved it a lot.

message 26: by lily:) (new)

lily:) I'm team Maxon! Aspen is a jerk! But hey, isn't he what really makes us love the book? Our hatred for him and our contrasting love for Maxon?

message 27: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Maddox I really enjoyed this book. It's my favorite series! I always read reviews after I read the book and I completely agree with your review.

message 28: by Leah (new)

message 33: by Faith (new)

message 37: by Emilee (new)

Emilee Taylor I wouldve gave it 3 1/2 stars because it was fine. I only read it because it looked interesting.

message 38: by Gerrard Fess (new)

Gerrard Fess Finally some one who gets me now!

message 39: by Amariah (new)

Amariah Dixon I was also rather impressed by this. I didn't think I'd like it (due to me not being a dystopian fan) but from the insistence of a friend, I finally read it. It was better than I expected!

message 40: by Ida (new)

Ida I love it too 😍

message 41: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Team Maxon!!! Lol. Loved this review!

message 42: by Hannah (new)

Hannah Thank you for your review! I loved the book and Maxon is such a gentleman!! ♡

message 43: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa Eilers I can completely agree with this review, I don't normally read and it's very hard for me to be able to catch interest in books but when I opened this book and started reading I really couldn't stop until I had to. After that I really couldn't wait until I could re-open that book again. I thought this book was going to be lame and a complete cliche. Turned out to be semi cliche but in a pretty good way due to turn of events that stepped in the way between Prince Maxon and America. That's probably my favorite part of the book is the whole idea of things stepping in their way and them overcoming those obstacles.

message 44: by Antonia (new)

Antonia  Books📚❤️ This is perfect book!😇

message 45: by Hannah (new)

Hannah Trout Yes thank you! I love this book series that I have them on a special shelf on my book case
