Goodreads Summary:

These Royals will ruin you…

From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most.

Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.

Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation.

No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.

They may be right.

With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.


Review:

Oh my word what a way to end a series. This last book does not disappoint! I could not get enough. I had me wanting more at every turn. Everything that the Royals and Ella went through all lead up to everything that goes down in this book. I don’t want to reveal anything that gives all the craziness away. Ella is so strong and amazing. I know that I said this in the last two reviews but her character just keeps amazing me around every turn. Reed really surprises me with how much he changes throughout the books. I mean he starts as a real mean person and then you start to see the reasons why he acts the way he does. I just can’t get over how much I ended up liking these books. I give this book a huge five out of five stars.

Review: Paper Princess by Erin Watt

Title: Paper Princess

Author: Erin Watt

Total Number of Pages: 370

Start Date: February 26th, 2017

Finish Date: February 28th, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.

These Royals will ruin you…

Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.

Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.

Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.

He might be right.

Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.


Review:

What to say, what to say. I was so surprised by this book. It wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. Ella is such a strong character. She is a survivor and knows how to take care of herself. I can’t blame her though. She had to take care of herself and when you’re young that can be very difficult. There were times where I thought that she was being childish in a way but then I would think about it and realize she never got the chance to be a kid one hundred percent. I do believe that Callum really does care about her and want to take care of her and give her the life that she has always wanted but there is a small part of my brain that thinks he might have alternative motives with bring her to his house. His sons definitely don’t help that either. They are all very aggressive and not like any other characters from other books that I have read. Its like they all have their secrets. I did love this book but I am giving it a four out of five because there were times while reading that I felt like it was a repeat of something from earlier in the book.

Review: The Crown by Kiera Cass

Title: The Crown

Author: Kiera Cass

Total Number of Pages: 278

Start Date: January 9th, 2017

Finish Date: February 26th, 2017


Goodreads Summary: 

When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.


Review:

This book is another five out of five stars. This series as a whole was so good. I wish I had read them sooner. I love that the first three books were about her parents and how they fell in love and then the last two are about Eadlyn and how she goes about her own selection. Eadlyn reminds me of her mother a lot. She is a very stubborn person but  she is very passionate about her people and wanting to be the best she can be for them. All of the characters are amazing and well developed. They are all really well rounded and they surprise you at every turn. I would recommend this series to anyone.

Review: The Heir by Kiera Cass

Title: The Heir

Author: Kiera Cass

Total Number of Pages: 342

Start Date: January 4th, 2017

Finish Date: January 9th, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she’d put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess’s life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can’t escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn’t expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn’s heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she’s always thought.


Review:

I can’t believe I waited so long to read this series. It is so good and this book does not disappoint.It’s going to be another five out of five for the Selection series. I think that this book might be one of my favorites in the series. I loved reading from the perspective of America and Maxon’s eldest child and heir to the throne Eadlyn. You can see so much of each of her parents in her but she is still herself. When she starts going through her selection you can tell that she doesn’t want to open up to any of the boys but she slowly starts to open up and even though she has a hard time she does start to really try and get to know them. This book also does not lack any of the excitement the last three had. It adds to it nicely with continuing the story. I can’t wait to read the last book and find out who she chooses or if she chooses. I have a couple favorites that I’m routing for.

Review: The One by Kiera Cass

Title: The One

Author: Kiera Cass

Total Number of Pages: 323

Start Date: January 2nd, 2017

Finish Date: January 3rd, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.


Review:

Oh my goodness where do I begin. It’s another five out of five for Kiera Cass and The Selection series This series is AMAZING! It just keeps getting better and better. This third book was so action packed I just couldn’t put it down. America continued to stand up for what she feels is right. The Northern rebels want to pledge their allegiance to Maxon when he eventually becomes king. When I read the previous book I got a funny feeling that America’s dad was up to something on his visit and man was I right. I like that about these books. You can slightly predict what a character might be up to or if they might be hiding something, but you aren’t one hundred percent sure until it just comes out of nowhere. There was just so much  what happened in  this book. I don’t want to give it all away. I can’t wait to read the next two and see where the story goes.

Review: The Elite by Kiera Cass

Title: The Elite

Author: Kiera Cass

Total Number of Pages: 323

Start Date: January 1st, 2017

Finish Date: January 1st, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

The Selection began with thirty-five girls. Now, with the group narrowed down to the Elite, the competition to win Prince Maxon’s heart is fiercer than ever–and America is still struggling to decide where her own heart truly lies. Is it with Maxon, who could make her life a fairy tale? Or with her first love, Aspen, who she always thought was the one?

America is desperate for more time. But the rest of the Elite know exactly what they want–and America’s chance to choose is about to slip away.


Review:

Another huge five out of five for The Selection series with The Elite. This book was just as good if not better than the first! I just love the characters, well most of them. America is just so passionate (even if it is a bit irrational at times). I loved that she spoke her opinion on the castes even though she knew that it would end badly. I feel like her father might have something he is hiding either from just her or the whole family. I found it odd that when he was at the palace he would “explore” instead of be with his family at the ball. Especially since it was after America told him about the books. I think Maxon was a bit off this book with being distant toward America after he told her that she was who he wanted in the end but I was so happy when he came around and was finally honest with her. I can’t wait to dive into the next book and find out what happens to this group because I feel like things are just getting started!

Review: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Title: The Selection 

Author: Kiera Cass

Total Number of Pages: 327

Start Date: December 30th, 2016

Finish Date: January 1st, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

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.


Review:

I am giving this book at huge five out of five stars. When I finally decided to read this series i was a little skeptical because sometimes (not often) they don’t always live up to the hype that  everyone says about them. This book however did not disappoint! I just couldn’t put it down. The love triangle between American, Aspen and Maxon is developed beautifully and I can’t wait to see how that all ends up. Not going to lie I’m kind of routing for Maxon after the first book. I can’t wait to read the rest and find out what is instore for Lady America Singer. I hope she keeps standing up for what she feels is right and stays true to herself. I also hope the Prince Maxon gets taken more seriously by his father and others around him. He really seems to care about the people in his country and wants to do good, and I really want him to find love. Not going to lie but I’m still mad at Aspen for how he treated America when she was trying to do something nice for him. We will see how I feel about him as I continue  the series.
