The longer you wait for something, the more you appreciate it when you get it, because anything worth having is definitely worth waiting for.
20 years ago, her mother won the crown.
Now Princess Eadlyn is ready to find true love.
Look at it! It’s gorgeous!! I can’t wait to start this tonight. Fingers crossed it’s good… The series quite honestly should have ended with The One. But of course because I’m curious, people will be talking about it, and I just love Maxon (though the idea of “Daddy Maxon” as my friend likes to call him now) too much to not read it.
So I will put Clockwork Prince on hold and speed through this and hopefully get a review by the end of the week.
Have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
“Maxon, some of those marks are on your back so they wouldn’t be on mine, and I love you for them.”
He stopped breathing for a second. “What did you say?”
I smiled. “I love you.”
“One more time, please? I just—”
I took his face in both of my hands. “Maxon Schreave, I love you. I love you.”
“And I love you, America Singer. With all that I am, I love you.”
It wasn’t like I made his world better. It was like I was his world. It wasn’t some explosion; it wasn’t fireworks. It was a fire, burning slowly from the inside out.
“I’ve met nearly every woman in this room, and I can’t think of one who would make a better friend. I’d be glad to have you stay.”
My relief was inexpressible.
“Do you think,” Maxon asked, “That I could still call you ‘my dear’?”
“Not a chance.” I whispered.”
For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.
But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.
Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself—and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.
The book I am about to pick up and start reading is called The Selection by Kiera Cass. Has anyone read it? I met the author at a book tour in one of my local book stores here and she was a really nice, awesome person! I can’t wait to read this.
