The Crown by Kiera Cass Book Review!

The Crown by Kiera Cass is the fifth and final installment of the Selection Series! I won't be posting a summary for this book because I am afraid it might spoil the other books in the series:)


What I Liked:

The characters matured so much! While I loved the selection series, I found the characters in the book to be quite tiresome and annoying! Eadlyn was very annoying and snobby in The Heir but I feel like she really grew as a person and I enjoyed this book much more than The Heir because of it!

The romance was great as always! I was rooting for Kile and honestly I really thought that they would get together! For me, Erik and Eadlyn getting together was just totally out of nowhere, but I don't disapprove of the couple:) Oh can we TALK ABOUT HALE? BY HALE I MEAN HALE AND EAN???

I just totally didn't see that coming! But the thing is, I actually really liked that Kiera Cass did that because there aren't a lot of books out there with gay couples. I mean, it's increasing, but not enough and I feel that Kiera adding this element in to this book made it more relatable in a few ways. Like it wasn't some fairytale world but an actual realistic society.

Plus I am so happy to see that America is okay!!! I was so worried for her and I was so happy when she was back to normal! I was also really happy to see Maxon fretting over America! They are so adorable!!!

Let's talk Marid! I know he was a bad character with bad intentions but I really liked how Kiera added some complications to the story! I mean, it was a totally ridiculous one but it was good to read about some other things than the selection.

What I didn't like:

Okay, so I'm completely fine with Erik and Eadlyn. I ship it now even. But the transitions were just...meh. I mean, I knew that they had some sort of liking towards each other in the first book but this was just totally out of the blue! I mean, for a few chapters Eadlyn was like "I think I'm falling for Kile" and then a few chapters later she's like "OMG ERIK I LOVE YOU!!!"

Plus, was it just me or was the book super rushed? I mean, the book didn't even reach three hundred pages! I felt that the story was to rushed and that Kiera Cass was trying to speed up everything so much. I could have used another 100-200 pages honestly. I mean, Erik and Eadlyn had like no chemistry and suddenly they do and yeah.

I would rate this book a 3.5/5. It was a nice fun read and I am so sad to see The Selection series ending! I am definitely waiting for Kiera's future books!!! What Did you think about The Crown???
