    I read The Prince a while ago and gave it 3/5 stars, but I've finally read The Guard and did not love (1.5/5 stars). At least it has given me a bit of a refresher for the series, so I can continue on with The One and remember a little of what had happened before (I've totally forgotten most of it).

    Both of these novellas were fast passed and really easy to read. They were not the best but still, I'm very happy I took the time to read them. I recommend reading this especially fans of The Selection series because it does give some good insights :) The Prince: ★★★✰✰ “There was something about her.. Even the way she didn't like me drew me in, and I couldn't help but smile.” This one was just alright. I didn't love it but I can't say I hated it either.

I recommend reading this especially fans of The Selection series because it does give some good insights :) The Prince: ★★★✰✰ “There was something about her.. Even the way she didn't like me drew me in, and I couldn't help but smile.” This one was just alright. I didn't love it but I can't say I hated it either. It's written in Prince Maxon's POV which was initially what drew me to want to read it in the first place. It takes place a couple of weeks before The Selection which just so happens to be on his 19th birthday. I really enjoyed the first few chapters. The ones that took place before. It was nice seeing all the work that went into the preparations for the 'lottery' that really wasn't a lottery at all! And seeing it all through Maxson's eyes. It was wonderful to be inside his head, to see his fears and doubts throughout the whole prosses and what his expectations were going into it and whether or not if he'd find love in the end. I have loved Maxon from day one and this just helped solidify it even more. He's charming, sweet, passionate, a bit sheltered and he generally cares about The Selection and each one of the girls. I also enjoyed having his thoughts on the girls as well. Especially the one he has about America :) Maxon is so damn easy to love! The last couple of chapters were retellings of Maxon and America's first couple encounters in The Selection just through Maxon instead. And they were pretty boring because of it. Illustration of Maxon & What I picture he'd look like. “If she were (looking into my eyes), she’d have seen how absolutely floored I was the first time I finally, truly saw her. The clouds moved at just the right moment, fully lighting her face by the moon. She was dazzlingly beautiful. Underneath thick lashes were eyes blue as ice, something cool to balance out the flames in her hair. I felt a strange flutter in my chest, like the glow of a fireplace or the warmth of the afternoon. It stayed there for a moment, playing with my pulse.” The Guard: ★★★✰✰ “Accepting help is its own kind of strength” The Guard was... Well, it was just an okay read I guess. I get a bit bored when there are repeat scenes from previous books. And if I'm being honest Aspen's POV really didn't add that much to the story which is sad because I was looking most forward to his. I guess I was looking for something more and sadly this just didn't deliver. And even though I distaste repeated scenes (scenes from The Elite) it was still nice getting a look into his thoughts and feelings and his desires. Aspens POV gives us insight into King Clarkson's nature, motivations, manipulative ways, and his cruelty. It was also nice getting to see the relationship's form between him and America's maids Anne, Marry and Lucy and the respect they have for him and the love they have for America. It was nice seeing Aspen's camaraderie with the other guards, especially with Avery and Tanner. Also, I enjoyed the couple scenes between Aspen and the old man who works in the stables. The old man gives some pretty good advice too :) My rating for this book has nothing to do with my liking or not liking Aspen. It's solely based on the content and the entertainment factor which was very low in my opinion. And... For the record, I have always loved Aspen ever since the first book! Not necessarily with America but because his dedication to America remains steadfast throughout EVERYTHING and he's caring, sweet and all around a wonderful person. Illustration of Aspen & What I picture he'd look like. “I pushed my lips to hers, locking her to me with a hand knotted into her hair. Stupid. So, so stupid. But right in a thousand ways. It felt like an eternity had passed since we'd kissed this deeply, but we fell into it so easily.” “You’re the only thing I’ve ever wanted to fight for.”

    Yay!! I've finished the book! Reading this made me realize: 1. The king is even more of an asshole and I hate him more. 2. Maxon is even hotter. 3. That Selection list was a nice touch! 8/3/14 Oh my gods. I FINALLY have the Selection Stories After waiting SIX FREAKING MONTHS on hold for it at my state library. WAIT. The Prince and The Guard short stories for the Selection Trilogy AND A SNEAK PEAK OF THE ONE??!!!! HOW COULD THIS GET ANY BETTER?!!!! YAY A COVER!!!!!!!

    I hated The Prince. I’m of the unpopular opinion that Maxon sucks. I enjoyed The Guard which only made me love Aspen more. I will forever ship Aspen and America. 💜🤭🤫

    I love Maxon's short story and his point of view. I think, no I know, that it just made me love him even more. I love the extended scene for his part. Absolutely fawning over it. As for Aspen's short story, I really tried. I did. I do not like him, not in Selection, not in Elite and I can care less for his point of view. It actually aggravated me even more. He was too ignorant for me. I couldn't stand it. I found myself skimming through his parts. I did however like that he took his time to hang I love Maxon's short story and his point of view.

    Immediately read the sneak peek at The One, followed by the extra info, followed by the extended version of The Prince and The Guard. This was well-worth the $10, guys. I'm gobbling this up like candy. Review to come.

    So, my obsession with The Selection continues. It took me so long to find this book for sale in brazil, but FOUND IT! Okay, to start with, i have to say im a little sad. I honestly don't like Aspen, but he takes like 70% of the book hahah. Still, it was good to see everything from his perspective.

I don't know, but just seeing how he felt towards King Clarkson, and the Selection, gave him a more "I'm not just a prince, im human" look. Because before, on the selection books (not the novelas) its kind of like Maxon is untouchable, like he can get through anything. But then, you see he didn't want the selection, he didn't have freedom, he was just a weak boy trying to chose a wife when he didn't know the first thing about girls. But yet he was like heaven. The Guard: I don't like Aspen, haven't liked him since he became a Guard. And on the guard, i have only disliked him more. I mean he tried to push America down "Do you think I could do it? If i became a princess?" and HE SAYS NO! Like i get it you're in love, and all, but you are a 6!!!! Maxon is a 1!!! I mean not only that, Aspen puts his interests first, and wants America to himself. America loved both Maxon AND Aspen, and he tried to degrade Maxon.

    Can't wait until the release of The One so I'll take every bit of extra I can. I think The Guard was supposed to make you like Aspen more...and I don't hate him I just decided who I wanted America to be with a long time ago. Worth the read!!!

    I love love loved having both The Prince and The Guard in paperback format. Generally I don't read the novellas for books simply because I avoid reading on an e-reader or on my computer. I'm really liking the trend of novellas being bundled and printed! Anywho, The Prince was absolutely fantastic. I was really craving a look into Maxon's mind and it delivered. Problem is, now I want to read the whole thing in his mind frame too! I am a Maxon fangirl so you know I just devoured The Prince.

The real surprise for me though was that I actually enjoyed The Guard. I don't dislike Aspen but I just don't like him and America together (although my guess is that it's just because I didn't see their feelings develop for each other, the books just started off with them already a couple). With seeing Aspen be friends with America's maids though it really makes me hope he will start developing feelings for one of them! Then The One will deliver happy endings all around! It's made me really excited for The One to come out and all the extras in the paperback version made it 1000% worth it.

    The Prince - This was SO lovely! I loved Maxon when reading 'The Selection', so reading from his perspective was really cute (just like him, aha!) Seriously, he's a precious little prince that America better be appreciating. The Guard - Aspen was like my least favourite character, so I didn't quite know how I'd feel about it (and him) but this proved he had some redeemable qualities and I liked how it set up a closer relationship between him and the maids. It really added sense to 'The One'. I th The Prince - This was SO lovely! I loved Maxon when reading 'The Selection', so reading from his perspective was really cute (just like him, aha!)

    To be perfectly honest, I really don't think this book added anything to the Selection Series. It mostly rehashed scenes we've already experienced (but from the male's point of view, whoop-de-do) so it felt a little tedious, basically reliving conversations we've already seen. I was really hoping for backstory on these guys, or things going on with them that we couldn't see from America's point of view. Not the case.

Maxon's just made him look naive and a little pathetic - it was cheesy, poorly written, and the things Clarkson said to him were just so laughable outlandish for the sake of driving home that fact that he's a villain... I just couldn't take it seriously. Aspen's was even worse - insufferable, self-righteous, and simply delusional. Telling America over and over again that Maxon's affection for him isn't real, feeling so sure she's going to choose him... I was even MORE glad she doesn't, after reading this. It was sloppy, rushed, and a wholly unnecessary book.

    I'm so happy that I read these 2 novellas because I've missed the world of The Selection. It may not be the best but Kiera knows how to write amazing male characters. If I'm honest though The Prince was by far the better novellas and should have been longer. The Guard was okay, but I've never been the biggest Aspen fan. Had his novellas focused on him and Lucy then I probably would've given it a higher rating. The Prince - 4.5 Stars The Guard - 3.5 Stars

    Review for the Guard (since I already read the Prince several months ago). Let's just say, I am all team Maxon, and this book made me go for Maxon even more. Maxon! God, Aspen is urgh, blergh. He broke up with America, but for some reason still thinks she is HIS girl. No she isn't boy, no she isn't. You know you broke up with her at the beginning??? Did you forget all about that? And oh wow, her face looks that way, omg omg she loves me! Wait what? Sure you know her and all, but deducting from suc Review for the Guard (since I already read the Prince several months ago).

Sure you know her and all, but deducting from such a small thing that someone loves you? Um, no. I always disliked Aspen. I felt that he was just distracting her from the game/Maxon. I am sure if he wasn't around America would go for Maxon more, now she is wavering between two guys, and really needs to pick. I really hate that Aspen does that to her. I do liked the fact we saw more of the staff, maids and the underbelly of the castle and how things go there. Aspen and his conversations with America's maids was fun and made me happy that he had such good contacts with them. And we see more of his secret money sending thing to Woodstock in here. So yeah, Aspen has a few good sides, but again, he broke up with America but he keeps going to her. He should just leave her alone. And of course, the most important thing in this book (next to the Prince story of course). A preview to the final book in this series!!!!! And my, oh my, it was perfect, wonderful and I was just sad when I found out it was over. :( Gah, only 3 more months to go! I am not sure if I can wait that long though. Also loved the little information, family trees, Q&A with Kiera Cass in the back. :)

How they come up with names, and in what order they write the book. Idk. I just find these stuff interesting, I know... I'm weird. But I'm glad that it was included.

    While I did find these stories to be a bit repetitive as we had already seen them from America's perspective in the first two books, I did enjoy them nonetheless. It was interesting to read about the beginnings of the Selection from Maxon's view in the first story. And then we switched to Aspen's point of view for a story from later on in the Selection which was just as interesting! All in all I did enjoy both stories and thought they were a nice little interlude before starting the third book i While I did find these stories to be a bit repetitive as we had already seen them from America's perspective in the first two books, I did enjoy them nonetheless.

    This was a series when it was released as ARCS, I read all three books as advanced review copies and loved it to bits. Then her daughter's series was released, and I didn't enjoy it as I found her daughter to be a spoilt brat, and it put a damper on this series for as I all of a sudden no longer wanted to read the short stories. Now on medical leave, I had lots of time on my hand and decided to go back and read some of my older reads, which included The Prince and The Guard.

Now on medical leave, I had lots of time on my hand and decided to go back and read some of my older reads, which included The Prince and The Guard. As soon as I opened the book and started reading, I was transported back into the world of America Singer. This time, however, from Maxon's POV and Aspen's POVs. In The Prince, we read about Maxon's first love which started as a friendship but he didn't have long-lasting feelings for her, and because of this The Selection was called. We read the lead-up to the selection, from the culling of the girls and his first meetings with them all and how he came to fall head over heels for America, a feeling he had never felt before. The second story was The Guard which tells the story of Aspen who loves America and thought that she would be his HEA , Aspen knows about the rebels and gets a job at the Palace to help protect America but soon the pair of them will realize the dangers if they were caught fraternizing as they witness terrible events to those accused of affairs and treason. In this book, Aspen and America come to realize that they can never love one another and that to survive, they must accept their fates and move on. The Selection Stories is the perfect companion read for fans of Kiera Cass's The Selection.

    I loved getting glimpses of Maxon and Aspen's POV. I especially loved getting a little more insight into what was going on with them during books 1 & 2, and in some ways, try to sort out which one I felt would be a more ideal match for America. Before reading Aspen's novella (The Guard, book #2.5), I was completely on board for Team Maxon. Now, after reading it, I'm still...Team Maxon, but I have feels for Aspen. hahaha All I know is, I sure hope that America ends up with Maxon, and that Aspe I loved getting glimpses of Maxon and Aspen's POV.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I absolutely loved the series! I would definitely recommend not reading these novellas until after you have read the first three books in the series, that is just my opinion. I definitely enjoyed The Prints, More than The Guard. It was definitely fun revisiting this series, and getting the point of view of the boys involved. If you enjoyed the series, I would definitely recommend these little novellas!

    She may as well finish writing The Selection from Maxon's perspective, because isn't that what everyone else is publishing now? This really made me want to re-read the series!
