Book Review: Kindred Spirits by Rainbow Rowell

26365537Title: Kindred Spirits

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Publisher:  Macmillan Kids UK

Format: Mass Market Paperback

Pages: 96

Synopsis from Goodreads:

‘Everybody likes everything these days. The whole world is a nerd.’
‘Are you mad because other people like Star Wars? Are you mad because people like me like Star Wars?’
‘Maybe.’

If you broke Elena’s heart, Star Wars would spill out. So when she decides to queue outside her local cinema to see the new movie, she’s expecting a celebration with crowds of people who love Han, Luke and Leia just as much as she does. What she’s not expecting is to be last in a line of only three people; to have to pee into a collectible Star Wars soda cup behind a dumpster or to meet that unlikely someone who just might truly understand the way she feels.

Like any other Rainbow Rowell story that I read, this short novel made me feel fuzzy warm things inside my heart. Kindred Spirits, in my opinion, is basically our story as fangirls/fanboys. I tell you people, it’s like me reading about myself during the long periods of time I spent lining up just to see something that I have anticipated (aka book signings but in this novella, it’s the new Star Wars movie).

What I really liked the most about Rainbow’s characters is that they are so easily relatable. Elena and Gabe are such lovely people whom I just want to hug tight because I feel what they feel. Oh and Troy! He’s so fun! I think he is someone, I would like to be on the same side with and someone who I will look up to. Why not? He’s an expert in my fandom.

There were not much exciting parts in the novella save for that moment that they have been waiting for. Though I think that I really enjoyed the banters between our main characters and the bits of revelations from them.

My final rating is 4/5 stars. I just want it to be longer with more character development.

Best Reads in 2014

What a year it has been! 😀 Time flies by so fast. I’m pretty surprised at myself at how involved I became in reading. One day, I met some cool book friends and voila, I get to come to book signings and read loads of books!!! I am pretty proud of myself. So, 2014 has been an awesome year for me. I’ve been taken to lots of worlds and I can say that I lived a thousand lives (or maybe just hundreds, lol)  this year through books. Anyway, these are my Top 14 reads this 2014!!

 

1. Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas

I am such a huge fan of this series. I am still spreading word about how awesome and badass this series is. My friends are probably annoyed by how enthusiastic I am when talking about Sarah J. Maas and Celaena Sardothien. I can’t believe I still have another year to wait for the next book in the series. In the meantime, I am still pining for Prince Dorian Havillard.

 

2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

This is one of my all-time faves because I can relate to almost everything there is in Fangirl. I’ve had such a great time reading Cath’s journey as a die-hard fan of Simon and Baz. I can relate very much to this book. Levi is also one of the best book boyfriends ever. Thank you Rainbow for the amazingness of this novel!

 

3. The Edge of Never (The Edge of Never #1) by JA Redmerski

Everytime I think about this book, I can’t help but recall the emotional rollercoaster ride that I have been on while reading it. it’s such a beautiful novel about falling in love and finding meaning in life.

 

4. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Sydney and Ridge’s story is like no other. Colleen Hoover drowned me with so much feels. I had a great time reading this book together while listening to its soundtrack. The song Maybe Someday by Griffin Peterson put me in a bad case of book hangover. This is one of the few times that I’ve said to myself that it is awesome to read while listening to music. Mostly, I just prefer reading in silence but this book changed my mind.

 

5. The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #3)

This conclusion to the Mara Dyer series got my heart racing. I can’t still get over from the Romeo-Juliet-ish part of the book. I am so satisfied with everything that is in this book. Oh and I’m so stoked for Michelle Hodkin’s book tour in Manila next year!! Yay for me!!!!

6. Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi

Aaron Warner, I love you. Why are you even fictional?

Compared to the previous novels in the series, I definitely enjoyed Ignite Me. It has loads of thrills and squeal-worthy moments. I also appreciated Juliette here more because well at least she’s stronger and less irritating here. The ending of the series could have been written better but I’m still satisfied with the action-filled closing chapters to the series.

7. Divergent (Divergent #1) by Veronica Roth

If only Allegiant didn’t break my heart, it would have been the one on this list..but no. I think Divergent is the best book in the series. I enjoyed the idea of factions and all the very memorable moments when Tris met Four. ❤

8. The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass

The Selection series might have the most annoying and indecisive main character (aka America Singer), however, it’s one of my most beloved series. Why? Because it made me swoon and laugh. It was a fantastic news to hear that Kiera Cass will be publishing more set in America and Maxon’s world.

 

 

8. To all the boys I’ve loved before by Jenny Han

This is another light read that I really really enjoyed. It has some drama but I love the plot. I loved how this book not only focused on romance but also on family and friendship. It also has a gorgeous cover right?

Yes, yes..I have two books for the 8th spot..It’s hard to pick!! 😀

 

9. Hollow City (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children #2) by Ransom Riggs

Hollow City made an amazing impression on me after reading it. I felt like I did some time travelling with Jacob and Emma and the rest of the gang. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series as well as the movie for Miss P book!!

 

10. Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss #2) by Stephanie Perkins

This is one of my recent reads that I loved so much. I was really into because it was funny and adorable. It’s just what I needed to brighten up my mood this Holiday season.

 

11. The Oracle (The Arcadian Series #2) by TL Coulter

As a reader who enjoys fantasy, I think The Oracle, the second book in The Arcadian series made me fall in love to magical kingdoms and realms again. I read it in June or July. So after the cliffie, I craved for more magical kingdom-themed fantasy novels. It was really worth it.

12. Unravel by Callia Read

Unravel is another emotional read that I had this year. It’s filled with wtf plot twists that made me go crazy. It’s a pretty awesome read..more like a mind-fvck but in a good way.

 

13. Where She Went by (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman

The If I Stay novel was a bit meh for me but this one made me feel so much emotions. Gosh..I hope there will be a movie for it.

14. Bang by EK Blair

Gods, this is the most controversial and traumatizing read for me. I wonder if there will ever be a HEA for this. I like how crazy and dark this book is.

 

 

So, that’s it for me this 2014. Next year is going to be more thrilling for sure!!! For the meantime, I am leaving y’all with my greetings:

 

Epic Feels: Michelle Hodkin in Manila?

Anyone who knows me very well is aware that I am a huge fan of the Mara Dyer series. Ever since I’ve laid my eyes on that book cover and read it and devoured it, I cannot help but fangirl hard about the series especially when it comes to Noah Shaw. I already posted here a couple of times on how much I’m in love with these books. So, last December 3, Fully Booked posted this on their Facebook page:

Many had their speculations, and then someone posted this pic too:

Wow. Wow. Wow. Oh gods, how much they look alike right? And damn straight, that someone was right. These were the latest clues from the Fully Booked Facebook posts:

That line “love to ruins” comes from The Evolution of Mara Dyer.

“The boy is destined for greatness, but with you, he is in danger. You are linked, the two of you. You must leave him. This is what I have seen.”

I grew frustrated. “Is he in danger because of me?”

“He will die before his time with you by his side, unless you let him go. Fate or chance? Coincidence or destiny? I cannot say.” Her voice had turned soft.

Soft and sad.

A fist closed around my heart. I tried to let him go once before. It didn’t work.

“I can’t,” was all I said to her, and quietly.

“Then you will love him to ruins,” she said, and let my hands go.”
Michelle Hodkin, The Evolution of Mara Dyer

Then, another pic with a clue:

Keyword there is “Retribution”. Oh gosh, I’m still dealing with my emotions right now. Lol.

So yeah, there’s 99.9999% chance that this Mystery Author is Michelle Hodkin!!!!! No, wait..I’m 200% sure of this!! Woohoo!!!

I better be present at this event! I’m going to see the queen!!! 😀

What non-book nerds don’t understand

Book Nerds are nice people…like really really nice but there comes a point wherein we get so frustrated by defending our bookish ways. There are lots things about us that non-book nerds don’t understand. Those make us go mad and sad. Why? Because we frigging want them to get our point or our feels..whatever. Based on my own experience, there had been loads of questions asked about my love for books and some people can’t seem to wrap around their minds about it. Like I am talking about something so absurd and crazy

Here are some things about us that non-book nerds don’t understand:

1. How necessary it is for us to visit a bookstore at least once or twice in two weeks

I don’t know about you but I feel the necessity to visit and browse the bookstores at least every week or two. Whenever, me and my friends go out, they know instantly that we would all have to make a stop at the book store. There’s just something about the bookstores which make me feel more relaxed. It’s like my weekly therapy. If I can’t afford to buy a book due to a budget constraint, I just look at the beauty of the books displayed on the shelves of a bookstore.

2. It’s more important to buy books than new clothes or shoes or bags or any other stuff.

My mother always say: ” You buy so many books Jenny. You don’t even have new clothes. Look at you!” And I will reply, “Mom, I don’t care about new clothes. I rarely even go outside.” (Oops. Did I just gave a clue about my non-existent social life? Lol, jk)

*Yes, when I shop for books, the world gets better.*

3. We get extremely defensive when other people hate on the books that we love.

There are those people who make sure to accomplish their job which is hating the books that other people love. I get it. Yeah, you may think that it’s cool to bash books that make other happy but it’s not cool at all. If you hate a book that much, can you please keep it to yourself? It will not be your gain if you continue on wasting your energy on hating books that other people love. What do you even get from it? Like seriously..What????? Book nerds like me are extremely passionate about the books that we love. We even make an extra effort to defend our favorite books to people who hate them.

4. Reading books is like going on an adventure.

I love it when I read a book so awesome that I feel like I am having an epic jpourney with the characters. I love a book that sucks me in right into its story. Then, when you finish it, you will get so sad because you got so attached with the characters and so invested with the fictional world you don’t ever want it to end. Non-book nerds will not get the sadness we feel when we turn the last page of a book..especially, the last page of a book in a series. *Ugly Sobs*

5. Fangirling/ Fanboying/ Fandoms

Oh my..those books that are so epic and beautiful that at the moment you read it and even after you finish it, you fangirl/ fanboy over it. Nobody except your fellow mates in the fandom will understand you and your feels. Meanwhile, the non-book nerds will look at you like you’re losing your mind.

Basically, this is my point (Well said, Mr. John Green):

Friday Favorites: Book Series

Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites is a meme hosted by  Tressa’s Wishful Endings. It is a meme in which you can post or feature anything bookish that is your favorite. It can be a book, an author, series, or blog. Whatever it is that your bookish heart desires.

This week’s Friday Favorite Feature is my favorite book series. That would be the Mara Dyer Series by Michelle Hodkin.

 

 

Wonderful covers right? These books have the kind of covers that would look so good on your shelves plus they shout mystery when you look at them. They are dreamy-like pictures which I think suit the over-all tone of the books. They are dark and mysterious.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is basically about this girl Mara Dyer (lol of course) who woke up in a hospital, suddenly forgetting everything that happened to her, her bestfriends, and boyfriend, Jude. All of them, except her, were all killed after the asylum that they visited collapsed. To move on from the accident, she and her family moved to another town. At her new school, she meets the very charming Noah Shaw. Not only that, she also begins to get dreams and hallucinations that scare the crap out of her.

I started reading The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer at night time. Apparently, I made a bad choice because oh well, it freaked me out. The book was creepy. I had goosebumps as I got to several parts in which Mara had hallucinations (were those hallucinations or were they really true?). The books were indeed page-turners and unputdownable. As the story goes, it gets confusing..more and more questions arise. Arghhhhh!!!!

Michelle Hodkin has a wonderful and thrilling writing style. I need more, okay? Unfortunately, fans of the Mara Dyer series still have to wait until November this year to get the last book, The Retribution of Mara Dyer. But whatever, it’s like only a few months away. Actually, it is my most anticipated book of the year. I hope that the answers will be revealed and that there will be HEA. For the meantime, this is me waiting for TRoMD:

 

Friday Favorites: Fictional Boyfriend

Friday Favorites

Hello everyone! It’s time to do something new for my blog. I just recently discovered the Friday Favorites. It is a weekly meme hosted by Tressa’s Wishful Endings. It’s basically featuring anything bookish that you love on spotlight. It can be about an author, books, series, blogs, and more. I thought that this will be so much fun to do. So, I will be doing Friday Favorites posts as much as I can every week.

 

For my first Friday Favorites, I’ll be featuring my Favorite Fictional Boyfriend. To be honest, I have loads of favorite fictional boyfriends. But..the Number One in my list  right now would be Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Let me tell you what I love about him that makes me wish he is a real life person.

Pic Source

First, Levi is one of the fictional characters who seems to be so realistic. He’s not perfect. I am pretty sure he’s got flaws which were mentioned in Fangirl. One of which is him not being a “book-person”. At first, I was like: “How can you not be a book person? That’s a total turn off.” Well, as I got to know him more, I changed my view on him. It wasn’t like it’s his fault that he cannot tolerate reading books for a long time. He relies on audio-style of learning. Here’s their conversation about him not being a book person:

Cath: You read the books?

Levi: I’ve seen the movies.

Cath: So, you haven’t read the books?

Levi: I’m not really a book person

Cath: That might be the most idiotic thing you’ve said to me.

I began to like him when he tried so hard to study for his lessons by recording the lecture of their professors. Also, he takes time and almost begs Cath (lol) to read her Simon Snow fanfics to him. I think that was really awesome of him to try to understand Cath’s obsession with Simon and Baz. Plus, he doesn’t judge Cath just because she’s a fangirl of this series that has touched her heart and became a huge part of her life. Seriously, who wouldn’t want a boyfriend that totally gets you when you’re fangirling and you’re drowning in your feels? Basically, Levi is the dream guy of every fangirl.

Also, what I loved about Levi is that he genuinely cares for Cath. He’s practically a gentleman. Plus, he’s adorable, smart, and funny. How could he not exist in real life? I am wishing hard that he would. Just kidding (but I really hope so..lol..what?) Anyway, he is also the type of guy who apologizes when he’s wrong. He knows when to set aside his pride.

What else? I think he brought the best out of Cath. Not that Cath is not really good..but I mean Cath is close to being anti-social. She doesn’t like going out and she’s afraid to make new friends (kinda sorta like me). It was Levi and of course Reagan who helped her to become relaxed with other people and go out and have fun. He helped Cath in a lot of ways.

I probably have more stuff to tell about Levi. He’s just the best fictional boyfriend, IMO. Thank you Rainbow Rowell for creating one of my most beloved characters of all time.

Favorite quote from Levi:

“I like your glasses,” he said. “I like your Simon Snow T-shirts. I like that you don’t smile at everyone, because then, when you smile at me.… Cather.” He kissed her mouth. “Look at me.”

She did.

“I choose you over everyone.”

Book Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Title: Fangirl

Author: Rainbow Rowell

Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin (September 10, 2013)

Format: Trade Paperback

Pages: 433

Synopsis from Goodreads

A coming-of-age tale of fanfiction, family, and first love.

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…. But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fanfiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend; a fiction-writing professor who thinks fanfiction is the end of the civilized world; a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words…and she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

You know that feeling when you find a novel which practically describes your life? Yeah, this is just the feels that I got from the first page of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I picked this one because I was really curious about the title, Fangirl. That’s what I am. I have been a fangirl for most of my life and to know that a book exists about a certain fangirl, made me crave to read it. Plus the fact that Rainbow “awesomeness” Rowell wrote it, I’ve already decided that this is going to be a great read.

Fangirl is about Cath who goes off to a University with her twin sister, Wren. They are Simon Snow fangirls. They love the series, read it, watch it, and write fanfictions about it  (really sounds like my life except the twin sister and fanfic writing part). When college came, Wren transforms into a crazy college girl and refused to be roommates with her twin. Meanwhile, Cath doesn’t want to change like her sister. She doesn’t want to let go of her Simon Snow experience. With a new roommate, Cath meets Levi who she thinks is an absolutely adorable guy. Then, at her Fiction-writing class, she meets Nick, who seems to have lots of similarities with her.

What I love about this book is that it’s very relevant to my life. I think it’s one of the factors that I love this novel so much. I love immersing myself in a world such as Cath’s because I feel like it describes my life. Simon Snow is like the Harry Potter in this story. Everyone in our generation must have been a Harry Potter fan (we always will be) and went through the same experiences as Cath undergoes as a Simon Snow fan.

Another thing I can relate to is Cath’s personality. I swear I am like Cath in real life. I don’t go out as much as I like. I’d rather stay in my room the whole day than spend a day socializing with people. Her dedication for her fandom is something that I felt too…And I have always wished that I am more outgoing like my friends.

I could go on and on about the things that I love about Fangirl. It made me laugh and cry. There are scenes in the books that just made me feel touched.

The characters are so likeable. Oh. My. Goodness. Reagan is one of my favorites. She’s not dramatic and she’s really awesome. Thank goodness Cath has her. Levi is funny and adorable. At first, I was repelled by him because what the heck..he’s not a book person. I’m like..”You’re all good Levi but why are you not a book person? Why?!!!” I’m more into Nick in the beginning. But as the story went on, I was pissed off how Nick doesn’t seem to be concerned at all for Cath after they do their writing sessions. He doesn’t walk her to her dorm. Wtf, Nick? Seriously? That’s when I realized that it has to be Levi for Cath. It has to be.

Cath’s and Wren’s family life is a messed up though. They’ve been through so many things together. Their mother left them when they were just kids. Then, their dad got pretty much lonely when they went away for college. Let’s also add to the pile, the fact that Wren changed and became annoying. I think the twin’s relationship with their dad is admirable. They’re all cute as messed up as their family is. Damn Laura!!!! I like the part where the twin’s reconciled and went back to their former selves.

Then, there’s the ending..gosh, it’s so beautiful. It’s very nostalgic, especially the crying part over the release of the last book in a series that you cared so much about. I don’t really want the book to end but I think that Rainbow Rowell ended it in the right way. When I finished the book, I think I teared up a bit, hugged the book, rocked back and forth, tweeted my feels, and stayed book hangover for days.

Overall, I think Fangirl is a MUST READ for every fangirl. If you are one, pick up and read this book at this moment. It’s funny and unputdownable. You will not regret it. I love how Rainbow Rowell writes. She’s basically one of the authors who I love so so much because she made me feel so much emotions. I am fangirling over her!!!

Book Review: The One by Kiera Cass

Title: The One (The Selection #3)

Author: Kiera Cass

Publisher:  HarperTeen (May 6, 2014)

Format: Paperback

Pages: 336

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

The story continues with America Singer as one of the top four contenders in The Selection. Finally, her decision about what she wants is clearer. She had come to her senses and made a choice though there are occasional moments when her indecisiveness comes back. As the competition nears to its end, the palace faces threats from the rebels as their attacks and black-mails to overthrow the royal family become more frequent. Soon, the prince has to make a choice as to who will be the crowned princess.

If you haven’t read The One yet, well, I suggest you go pick it up now. Finish it because it really is worth it.

**SPOILER ALERT** **SPOILER ALERT** **SPOILER ALERT**

For those who have read The One already, you might want to fangirl with me. So, read on:

Okay..I  need to breathe..

I’ll begin by saying that I FREAKING LOVE THE ONE!!!! OMG!! Seriously, there was no moment that I ever felt bored with this book. It’s near perfection. I didn’t want to put it down because I was so thrilled with the events that happened. But then, I wanted myself to slow down in reading this because I don’t want it to end. I tried to survive all the FEELS that I was getting from the book. If you’re Team Maxon, well what can I say? Hmmm.. “Let’s Partyyy!!!!” Damn. I’m pretty sure that Mer had made her decision pretty clear in the beginning. She decided that she would fight for Maxon. Then, there weren’t many scenes that consisted of her thinking about Aspen. So, I assumed that I would be delighted to see whatever happens at the end of the book.

What do I think are the highlights? There are lots..Some of them are:

  • Mer stepping up her game to get Prince Maxon: Being provoked by the king, America decided to step up her moves with Maxon. Well, King Clarkson told Mer that she’s not pretty, intelligent, and worthy as much as the other girls. Seriously King Clarkson I want to shoot you. To show the king that she will not back down, America dressed in a very sexy dress. She looked so glamorous that when she went to have her meal with the other girls and the royal family, they were shocked. My favorite was when Kriss said to Mer, “You look trashy” and then Mer replied, “You’re just jealous.” Lol. I was literally fist-pumping in the air. That was epic.
  • Celeste and America became friends: Who would have thought that Celeste would reconcile with America? TBH, I was prepared to hate her til the end of the book. She was just nasty. I’m surprised that her opening up to Mer would make them closer.
  • The Convicting: This one is the most epic part of the book. Convicting is a ceremony wherein the remaining girls will pledge their allegiance to the Ilea’s law. The ceremony involves giving criminals their sentence. Obviously, this is a way of King Clarkson to get America out of the competition. As much as she wanted to avoid a scene, she doesn’t want to sentence a man to lifetime imprisonment for stealing clothes for his daughters. I love the part when she gave all her jewelry to the guy and told him to pay his debt to the king with what she gave. That was such a big slap to the king’s face. LOL!
  • Queen Amberly and the girls’ bonding time in the Women’s Room: This one made me tear up. The girls basically formed true friendship and even deeper bond with each other. I love that they did makeovers for one another. Then, Queen Amberly was so happy to see the girls like they were the best of friends. Oh and that part when America accidentally called the Queen..mom. Queen Amberly was shocked at first but she became okay with that and she let Mer brush her hair. Then, the girls took pictures while hugging the queen. I was crying at that scene. That was just so touching.
  • America’s father died: I didn’t see this one coming. There were no clues that Mer’s father was going to die of a heart problem. I think it would have made more sense if he got shot or something. It was no shock for me though to know that he is one of the Northern rebels.
  • Maxon’s and America’s make out scene: After her father died, it was so obvious that Maxon missed America that much. He came to her room and gave her late Christmas gifts and letters. Maxon was so sure of America at that time. They confessed their love to each other. I swear I was squealing and fanning myself the whole time I was reading this scene. It’s perfect and super romantic. I can’t even..
  • Mer and Aspen caught by Prince Maxon: After Maxon’s and America’s confession of their love to one another, Maxon was about to announce his choice and end the Selection. When the morning came, the two were caught by Aspen. Maxon leaves the room. Then, Aspen tells America about what they have blah blah blah. Then, all sh*t just got real. Mer was about to end it off with Aspen and BAM!! They were caught by Prince Maxon himself. I was so frustrated and heartbroken for Maxon.
  • Letters to America: Damn. I was crying the whole time I was reading this. Prince Maxon is the epitomy of a boy in love. He was so into America. In those letters, he got to tell Mer how crazy he was when she was away from him. He even said that “I love you” in the letters. I was like awww..
  • The attack of the rebels: Prince Maxon was supposed to end the Selection but the thing is he was so angry at America for what she did. I was afraid that somehow he’s going to choose Kriss (who turned out to be a supporter of the northern rebels). Southern rebels attacked the palace. It was a mayhem. I thought our Prince was going to die. I was so worried that he and America will not have a happy ending. But I was proven wrong..Celeste died though..why?? I like her now.
  • Wedding: OMG! I was reading this chapter and all I can think about is that it can’t end this soon. Anyway, I think the wedding was perfect except for the fact that it was Aspen who walked Mer down the aisle. It’s such an awkward concept for me.

Overall, The One is so EPIC! It’s near to perfection because it made me feel a lot FEELS. I love every part of it even though I was frustrated sometimes. It’s the kind of book that will make you laugh, cry, squeal and more. It’s really more than just another fairytale story. I just wish that Ms. Kiera Cass would have written an epilogue or another book. I would love to know what happened to America and Maxon after their wedding. I want to read about how they settled the problems in Ilea and if they had many babies.

I actually finished the book last Saturday. I must admit that I am still hangover. I can’t move on I swear. I wish there is more to the story. I even consider re-reading the books in The Selection Series. It’s one of my favorite series ever. Oh and I love the acknowledgements at the end of the book. Seriously, Miss Kiera Cass writes the most awesome acknowledgements in books. I love how she thanked her readers first. I really did enjoy America Singer’s world and I wouldn’t mind reading more about it. I’m really really wishing hard now. Well, I should probably end this here before I start fangirling again over Prince Maxon. Here’s my rating:
