This is the stuff fairy tales are made of. Except these girls, (and boys), don't need a Fairy Godmother to make their dreams come true. These are people of strength and love. There is courage and pain. If you have read the Selection Series, you dont want to miss Happily Ever After...truly a modern fairy tale we can all come to love.

I loved this series and all its companion guides. Mason and America love story was predictable and yet powerful. To see a young lady come into her own and see her grow into such a so strong young lady was amazing. She is a good example of what every young girl should aspire to be in today's world.

Happily Ever After is a compilation of novellas in the Selection series! The first story is about Queen Amberly and her story of falling in love with King Clarkson and why he is the way he is. The second story is all about Maxon and what he is going though as the girls arrive. The third story is Apsen's story and how he is dealing with watching America fall in love with Maxon but at the same time have feelings for Aspen. The last story is all about Marlee and her forbidden love and what happened to them after the canning. It also has a guide to where some of the other girls are and a few other bonus scenes that will make you fall more in love with the Selection series. I really enjoyed reading this book that gives you a deeper insight about the Selection series. It made me understand why King Clarkson is the way he is even though he is still a royal jerk. I believe that Marlee's story was my favorite out of all of them and it was kinda cool to read the bonus stories in there as well. It was fun to read this series and I can only hope that there will be another series like this coming from Kiera Cass in the future! Thank You to Kiera Cass for having all the novella's in one book with other bonus stories that made me fall even more in love with the Selection series!! I borrowed this book from my local Public Library.

I read all of the novellas for The Selection Series in this book. There are some excellent illustrations and extras in this book. If you are as obsessed as I am about this series, I recommend this edition. I recommend reading The Queen and The Prince BEFORE The Selection. The Guard AFTER The Elite. And the rest AFTER The One. There is also an excellent map of Illéa I feel like all of these extra stories added to the depth of the series. They give us a glimpse into the hearts and minds of the other characters. This helped me appreciate those characters more as I look back and think of the story as a whole.

I really enjoyed this compilation. I wish I could have remembered more details about The Selection, The Elite, and The One though. That would have helped connect the dots when reading. I loved the pictures throughout this book. Here are some impressions of the individual novellas. The Queen (The Selection #0.4) It's another selection with Maxon's father as the prince, and Queen Amberly as one of the candidates. I loved this story. Amberly is so sweet and selfless, and she's been in love with the prince her whole life practically. She witnesses an event that helps her understand Clarkson more. He is rough and kind of mean, but she's good for him. Clarkson is so different than Maxon during the Selection, so cold and non physical. That was interesting to read. After also reading The Heir, I was impressed with Kiera Cass' ability to write three very different Selections. 5 stars The Prince (The Selection #0.5) I loved being inside Maxon's head before the Selection. He's so nervous. It was so cute. Reading his reaction to America yelling at him in the garden was so fun. There's some sad back story on Maxon as well. He was so isolated. There isn't really anything new in this story since it follows the beginning of The Selection, but it's an enjoyable read. 4 stars The Guard (The Selection #2.5) I never really liked Aspen. I'm not exactly sure why. He loves America. Why do I fault him for trying to hold on to that? I don't know. I enjoyed seeing the servant perspective on the Marlee and Woodwork scandal. And I gained some insight into the king and Maxon as well. Mostly though this story didn't make me feel any differently toward Aspen. I still felt kind of sorry for him for holding out hope for America to choose him. 3 stars The Favorite (The Selection #2.6) I love Marlee. She was always my favorite, even more than America. This story is so sweet. I really enjoyed the flash backs to Marlee and Carter's early romance. I loved seeing the kindness Maxon showed them. It was especially nice to read after knowing what happens with them all in The Heir. 4 stars Scenes from Celeste There are three scenes from Celeste's POV at the beginning, the middle, and the end of the Selection. It was fun to read about her transformation from her POV. She was so miserable in the beginning, and she ends up so sure of herself and so happy in the end. Once again this story showed how wonderful Maxon is. 3 stars (only because it's not really a complete story) The Maid This story tells of an encounter between Lucy and Aspen which would have happened during The One. I am so happy that Aspen gets to find love again and that that Lucy found someone to love. This is a sweet little addition to the series. 3 stars After the One This short story takes place 2 years after their marriage. America has planned a birthday party for Maxon. Everyone is there. It's so fun to see Maxon and Aspen as friends. I knew that happened since I read The Heir, but it was nice to read an exchange of friendship earlier on in their lives. America's birthday gift for Maxon is perfect. This story was great! 4 stars Where They Are Now Kiera Cass has given a quick update on Kriss, Natalie, and Elise and where they ended up. I didn't remember enough about them to care very much. I could have done without this addition. I would have liked to know more of what happened to Celeste though. Am I forgetting something? http://www.momsradius.com/2015/12/book-review-happily-ever-after-ya.html

may be very good, but too dang expensive for an ebook, especially when a paper copy is only about a buck more

Not sure why I thought this was going to be another installment in the series. Just a heads up...it's not. Happily Ever After is a compilation of all the novellas and bonus scenes/epilogues in The Selection series and if you are up-to-date with reading the series then you have already read most of these. Die hard fans will likely love this one-stop shop for all the extras but I could have done without it. Don't mind me, just a little disgruntled. I should have read the synopsis first. Lesson learned. The Prince (with the two bonus chapters): Review from July 2013: ★★★★☆ The Guard: Review from March 2014: ★★★☆☆ The Queen: Review from March 2015: ★★★★☆ The Favorite: ★★★☆☆ Three scenes from Celeste’s POV: ★★★☆☆ Lucy’s scene (bonus scene from The One): ★★☆☆☆ The bonus epilogue: ★★☆☆☆
