HAPPY THANKSGIVING PO MGA KAPATID. :)
While I was recovering after reading Levithan’s Everyday, a friend of mine lend me her books of The Selection Series. I wasn’t expecting much from this book ‘cause Iv’e read some not so positive reviews about it. Okay, first of all, I SO love the covers of every book, it’s so pretty, the dresses are great and the girl (Audrey Hollister) looked gorgeous.
Anw, while I was reading The Selection, all I’m thinking was ‘It’s so obvious, she’ll end up with Maxon, it’s so predictable!’ but then, since America is SO undecisive, it confused me on who she’ll pick between Aspen and Maxon. One minute she’s so still into Aspen but then she’ll get jealous when Maxon is being sweet with the other girls. I actually spent a lot of time saying ‘Oh, she’ll choose Maxon! But wait no, she’s still in love with Aspen. Nah, she’s more in love with Maxon.’ Ugh, srsly, why can’t this girl make up her mind!? It really annoyed me when all she says to Maxon is she needs more time, time, time.
Personally, I think this book should’ve been just a stand alone, it could really end there since not so much really happened on the next two. Okay, there was those rebels blah blah blah but it hadn’t been elaborated. I was expecting more from August and Georgia, some explanations about them but nah, nothing. It’s been going round and round in circles and then at the end, everything happened! America realized she loved Maxon, and that she’s over with Aspen. America’s father was a rebel. Finally, the Selection ended. Maxon found out about America and Aspen. Aspen and Lucy. And then everybody died (no, not everybody, just most of them). i don’t see the point of killing Celeste, like, why do you have to kill her? You made us hate her, then you made us love her, and then bang! You killed her. What in the actual F? And I really think she rushed the ending. (I don’t hate the book)

Everyday by David Levithan
It’s been a week since I finished reading this book and until now, I still can’t get it out of my head. This book broke my heart into pieces, it pains me every time I think about the ending. I definitely needed a closure here. I’ve heard that there’s gonna be a book 2 and I really hope that A would come back to Rhiannon. Ugh!
The Selection (Kiera Cass) Typography/Lettering Series No. 3
This is really beautiful, but these words are not in my books. Pretty sure I said them on a live chat when someone was asking advice for an audition the next day. Still cool, but you should know it’s not on page 182 or something.
Oops… I’m really sorry about that. :( It’s just I like these words so much I probably accidentally mixed it with the others. I’m going to edit it right away.
P.S. I’m excitedly waiting for The One! :)
