The Crown (The Selection #5) Reviews
This is going to go one of two ways.
Way #1: I will love this book. I will gush about this book. I will want to have its children (not really) and pledge my soul to this book (a possibility).
Way #2: I will hate this book so much that I see red. Gouging my eyes out after reading is a possibility (gouging occuring during reading in an [most likely successful] attempt to avoid continuing reading this book is also a possibility, BUT it will only happen if the book is really bad), but I may settle fo ...more
Spoilers have been tagged but if you've read my review of THE HEIR, the outcome of THE CROWN will be spoiled nonetheless.
Disappointed is an understatement. Where's the romance?!
As a huge fan of The Selection trilogy, I was ecstatic when Kiera gave us 'The Heir' as a spinoff story. I was really disappointed with Eadlyn's characterization but she showed room for growth and I prayed she would get it together in 'The Crown'. While she did surprise me and do an almost complete 180, it ju ...more

“Trust your gut. Trust your heart.”
“I’m terrified of my heart.” I didn’t mean to say those words out loud, but there was something about him that made this room, and this moment, the only place I could ever admit to the truth.
He leaned down by my ear and whispered, “There’s nothing there to fear.”
I'm a sucker for fairy tales...
And i was almost obsessed with the first three parts of the series...
America and Maxon were amazing and i will never forget their st ...more
So... this book was a great reminder of how weak the story & characters got at the end of The Selection series and HOW MUCH BEAUTIFUL COVERS CAN DISAPPOINT ME.
I genuinely liked the first part of Eadlyn's story in The Heir, but there really was no plot arc in this sequel. It just plowed straight through in a bland line to the end. Everyone's character was reduced to some empty shell with dialogue... I can't even properly rage about how infuriatingly DULL this whole thing was because I'm still ...more
If this book is about Eadlyn's twin brother I'm gonna die
I will never understand why people feel the need to bash something they haven't even read.
Irony... God willing, I will be in the same place a year or so from now. I am sure there will be plenty of people who detest my book. LOL!
EDIT - 9/2/15
The words above were strangely prophetic... I AM preparing to release my first novel and praying my skin is thick enough to deal with the inevitable bad reviews. Wish me the best...
Kiera Cass seriously did not put that much effort in her last installment in the Selection series. The other books were great, especially the first three, but kind of lost their touch when Eadlyn was introduced. The Crown was so dry. It was like this...
I really do not like Eadlyn as a character at all because she has no personality! All I hear out of her mouth is awkward, out of place dialogue that leaves me cringing. Everyone was telling ...more
So I read through this in one sitting but I did not like it. I found it boring and the romance was so rushed and came out of the blue. By halfway through the author still had me guessing on who Eadlyn, our stupid useless heroine, would choose. She had guys coming from far and wide just for her to "pick". Load of bull. I just taught Eadlyn's story was pointless. I am sure these two books would have been so much better if Maxon and America's story had continued from book 3 ...more
