This being the third book in The Selection series, I cannot give much information on what goes on in this book. But it does take place again after the second book. And the stakes are so much higher in this book! After America is chosen for The Selection, you are taken on a whirlwind journey as she goes through the process.

As it was with the first two books, I was hooked and dragged through drama and some action! So many different things happened to people and I really loved it! I liked that this book wasn’t just all drama, it had other things happening. The characters were awesome, and well created. The writing was amazing and so well done, and the plot was awesome! While this book sort of dove into one of my least favorite tropes, I liked how it was executed and enjoyed it! I feel if it’s well done  then that’s when I like it and am able to dive into it! And this series is one of those cases where I really enjoyed how the author did it! *Having the girl chose between two guys even though it’s obvious who she loves more* Hope I haven’t said too much!

I am so glad that I decided to give it a chance! I have no regretted it since I picked up the first book and put down the third! I haven’t gotten farther than that, but I have purchased the novella bind-ups! Cannot wait to dive into those as well!

I liked Aspen a lot in this book! There were times that I really didn’t like him, and then it sort of turned around in this book. He was way more likable in it! Maxon was again his adorable self that I’ve liked throughout the series. He was even more adorable in this book to me honestly! They way he acts with America, and the other girls too. And with what happened in the end I felt so sad for him! When you read it and get there, you’ll understand! Once again America was frustrating yet so very strong. I went back and forth from wanting to shake America, to wanting to just hug her! Again if you read, you’ll understand!

I am honestly at a crossroad! I don’t know if I should continue with the fourth and fifth book since they are sort of like spin offs to the first 3! You’ll have to let me know in the comments if you suggest stopping or continuing! Also let me know if you’ve read this series and your thoughts! We can talk about it and what you thought of the ending!
