The selection is one of my favorite books that I'd ever read. Unlike the other 3 books, in this book, the perspective changed from America Singer to Eadlyn which is American and Maxon's daughter. Which is very interesting because in Eadlyn has her own conflicts where she doesn't believe in love at first but during the selection, it changed her thoughts. Eadlyn is really different from her parents, she is really independent and selfish at first, but the way she looks at the world different than others. Throughout this book, we are able to see another side of her personality. But one of the things that I don't like about this book is that there isn't actually an ending. This book is awesome and I can't wait for another one.

This book was really enjoyable for me to read. This time, the story isn't focusing on America's and Maxon's happy ending, instead it's about their daughter, who doesn't believe in love like her parents. It's an interesting twist to the next books in the series and gives off a fresh new vibe. Eadlyn is very funny, interesting, and she sees the world through different eyes. I finished the book within a day sadly, but it was really worth it. One regret - there wasn't actually an ending, just like the Selection - the story can't be completed in a book because it's too intricate and complicated, and I honestly can't wait for the next book. I loved Eadlyn's personality - although she was all diva-like, selfish and spoiled at first, slowly I got to see her other side and found out that she is actually an inquisitive, sweet person. I loved the book!

In this book (SPOILER ALERT if you have not read The One!) America and Maxin's kid will have her own selection, and she is not happy about it. will she find love? or will there be nothing for her to love? the end is a giant cliff hanger!

First read Cinder and Scarlet

I read the entire Selection series and was seriously upset when I finished. Like the the Percy Jackson series and the Harry Potter books, I didn't want it to end. Nearly two months after I had finished the series, a friend told me that there were going to be more books! At first I wasn't sure what to think, because the series had seemed so resolved, but once I got over the initial shock, I was obsessed! I was on my toes, searching for the release date of the next two books every other day! When it finally came out, I had just spent all my money at the book fair. Luckily, somebody let me borrow the book, just the other day. I was over the moon! I immediately started it, and couldn't put it down. I finished it the next day (sadly), and can honestly say my only complaint is that the next book isn't out yet. :'( I loved reading through and meeting the children of all my favorite characters, catching up with them, and reading Maxon and America's reactions to what goes on in Eadlyn's selection. I can't wait for the fifth book, five stars all the way!

This book was pretty good,but compared to the first 3, this wasn't as good. It started out as a regular book that sounded a lot like a fanfiction. As the book progressively started moving forward, it started getting better. What I loved is that it gave names to the children of America, Maxon, Marlee, and May! I fell so sorry for Aspen and Lucy though, they don't have any due to personal issues! What I didn't like abut this book is the main character Eadlyn. I absolutely hated her! She is very selfish and doesn't know how to make everyone like her! She is way too regal and feels like she should rule the world. She definitely doesn't know how to get boys to fall for her. She is beautiful and smart, but her personality is not the best. I love her twin brother Ahren though. I thought America and Maxon would teach Eadlyn better than she is though.
