Waiting on Wednesday (49)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme started and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. WoW is a way for bloggers to post about a book or books they're excited or "waiting" for. This week my WoW is:


The Selection by Kiera Cass
April 24, 2012

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon. 

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks. 

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she's made for herself- and realizes that the life she's always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

Yay for 2012 debuts with awesome covers! That's definitely a plus for me, as well as it having an awesome summary. I like that it's about a girl who doesn't necessarily want all of the fame and fortune that comes with being selected.

I have not seen this one yet. Love the cover, very eye-catching and the blurb had me too. Sounds like it should be a great book and it's definitely going on my list.

Here is my WoW.
