Oh, how I miss this and guess what everyone? Semestral break is fast approaching! I’m so pumped up for sembreak and I really do wish they’ll not make it into one week break. That is somehow awful cause I want a 2-3 week break!

Say I’m demanding but blimey, I’m so done with school stuffs I want to go rest for a while.

Now, let me stop ranting about this and let me rant about the fifth and final book of Kiera Cass’ The Selection Series: The Crown!

Woooaaah! A very stunning and lovely book cover isn’t it? It just made my heart pop with excitement and I can’t help to make my expectations for this book grew higher back then.

BUT THEN DUE TO PURE EXCITEMENT AND FOR NOT BEING ABLE TO PURCHASE THE BOOK A SOON AS POSSIBLE… I SPOILED MY HELPLESS SELF.

*WARNING: SPOILERS ARE ON THEIR WAY SO IF YOU DON’T WANT TO GET SPOILED LEAVE IMMEDIATELY! 😀 SAVE YOURSELF BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!*

Now, now. Where are we again? Oh yeah right. Me being spoiled.

After that spoiling incident, I don’t know what should I feel or think! *cries*

So here’s what happened we all knew that in the fourth book, our lovely queen America got a heart attack and princess Eadlyn was forced to make The Selection process a little bit faster. The situation got quite complicated and in the fifth book, the boys were narrowed down into the Elite immediately and these boys are Kile, Henri, Hale, Fox, Ean, and Gunner.

I was practically cheering because of course my two favorite boys got in, and those boys are Kile and Henri! But then… again I spoiled myself and discovered that Eadlyn did not end up with these two boys nor with the other four boys. MY MIND, HEART, AND SOUL WAS BLOWN AWAY INTO THE DARKNESS OF DESPAIR! Because… why? why? why? not Kile or Henri!

I was really rooting Kile for Eadlyn and you can clearly see their chemistry in the previous book! I’m not blind or numb in order for me not to see their chemistry. *cries* It was a real waste for me back then but still I did not give up and hoped that Henri will end up with Eadlyn. But then then it turns out they did not end up with each other too. AGGGH! It was sooo frustrating and I almost decided not to read the final installment of the series.

Thankfully, I gave the book a chance to explain itself and in the end it was justified. I already saw the twist coming when I was reading the fourth book a few years back. I did not took it seriously because it was a really insane and heart wrenching plot twist. But when I read the whole story of the book? My perspectives changed and I was satisfied in the end. The book did not only contained this one major twist but there are a lot more. You’ll be surprised and maybe you’ll get scared for Eadlyn’s fate but you’ll see how she will deal with things maturely. She is much more a stronger person in this book and finally, she really did open her heart already. She’s not the stone cold princess anymore.

For my part, I may say the plot twist was heart wrenching but don’t get me wrong guys no one died okay? Jusr relax! It was just heart wrenching for me because the twist was so far away from my expectations. I may saw it coming but I clearly avoided the possibility. The Crown is the shortest and the most fast paced book of The Selection series and somehow wanting for more chapters can’t be helped.

Hail Kiera Cass! This book is bloody brilliant because of the twists that will really make you roll with a lot of emotions and feels.

The book gave me justice by answering my questions and for making me realize a lot of things in life. This is what I love about books though, it will not just give me happiness but it will give me a lot of realization too.

That’s it for this post everyone and please don’t forget to smile each day!

Cause I’m trying my best to smile each day too! HAHAHA! 😀

See ya’ll on my next blog post everyone!

The Crown

by: Kiera Cass

5th book of The Selection Series.

Publisher: Harper Teens

Publication Date: May 3,2016

Pages: 352

“Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series has captured the hearts of readers from its very first page. Now the end of the journey is here. Prepare to be swept off your feet by The Crown—the eagerly awaited, wonderfully romantic fifth and final book in the Selection series.

In The Heir, a new era dawned in the world of The Selection. Twenty years have passed since America Singer and Prince Maxon fell in love, and their daughter is the first princess to hold a Selection of her own.

Eadlyn didn’t think she would find a real partner among the Selection’s thirty-five suitors, let alone true love. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and now Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more difficult—and more important—than she ever expected.”

Man! I so need the fifth or should I say the last book of the series right now! The fourth book was a major cliffhanger that made me want to strangle the book  but I just can’t because you know it’s a book. I would never hurt my books or any books in this world.

Anyway,  I’ve done a book talk about the fourth book of the series which is The Heir about a few months ago.

What are you waiting for? Check it out guys!
