The Crown by Kiera Cass

It is sad you know? Seeing this all coming to an end. However, if you think about it, it won't be a complete end until i read the 'Happily Ever After' book, which has some small novellas that focus on the series. Although, i do feel that i don't really want to read it just yet as it means that it would have officially ended then for me, after all of these years.

If you had been with me from the very start, my first post was actually a review of the first three books of the series. Everything seems to have changed drastically since then.

 
If i am being totally honest, when first laying my eyes of the final cover of the selection series, may have been a little bit judgemental. Not only because of the fact that i felt, not only is it very predictable, but it would have been nice to have colours that symbolise both femminity as well as leadership. Which when looking at this at first, it makes me think of 'primary' colours that everyone uses for girls, when they don't know what colours of presents they want to give to a certain person.
 
However, upon the second glance of it being on my bookshelf with all of the other books from the series, i believe that i may have been a little hasty in my judgement. It actually looks quite nice when you put all the books together, it can be seen to be a very effective colour, even sticking with a certain colour scheme.
 
To be perfectly honest, i am not overly fond of Evelyn, she's ok, but not a protagonist which i sympathise with. She feels more like a spoilt brat who can't seem to get her own way. I just kind of feel sorry for the person she ended up with in the end, because they seemed more decent than she would ever be. At least we got to see America and Maxon for the final time. Just so sad that we will never read about the perfect couple ever again.
 
But hey, gives me more of an excuse to once again find the perfect romance novel!
