I tend not to read novella’s often, because they tend to be too short for me. However I love THE SELECTION so when I came across HAPPILY EVER AFTER I knew that I had to check it out, especially once I found that few of my favorite character’s stories were in there. Stories weren’t only what captured my attention but it was the cover itself. When I went to library to look for a new book to read, when I came across it, I stopped because it even caught my attention from distance. A stunning cover, as all of covers from her books seem to be, I couldn’t help but stop. I feel like the cover itself tells a story, not only is it colorful but also mysterious, by the way that the girl on cover is gazing. A cover that will capture your attention and even if you haven’t read The Selection series, it will make you want to read it.

I am not sure whose novella I prefer, they were all unique in their own way. I did find it hard to put the book down, I did not want to put it down till I reached the end, and I found myself reading it most of the night. I did love Aspen & Marlee’s novella the most, because besides Maxon and America, they were my favorites. I had always wonder how the affair between Marlee & Carter starter and what she was thinking during that time and what was Aspen’s thoughts while he was in palace with America. After reading both of their stories, I love them even more than I had before. To me, both of them are heroes in their own way.

Illustrations were beautiful, and it made the stories seem more real, because now I could imagine everything so much better. I loved the extra scenes Where are there now? I loved Kriss and I was sad to see her go, I was curious where she had ended up. It’s novella that has you thinking about other characters more than you have before. If you love THE SELECTION SERIES , you should check out HAPPILY EVER AFTER because once you do, you won’t put it down.
