Waiting on Wednesday (75) - The Selection

The Selection
Kiera Cass
Publisher: HarperTeen
To be released: April 24, 2012

Summary (from Goodreads):

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.

I had the opportunity to meet Kiera Cass at the Book Blogger Convention in May and here about this book then I was instantly excited. She was very sweet and funny and peaked my interest in her book then. And then I read the official synopsis. And saw the cover. THAT COVER IS GORGEOUS!!! SO PRETTY! And I love the idea of a Bachelor-esque competition with princes. Super excited!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event highlighting exciting upcoming releases. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
