Waiting on Wednesday: The Selection {1}

This is my first Waiting on Wednesday, and I'm super excited!

The Selection by Kiera Cass

Published by HarperTeen on April 24th, 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.

Why I'm Interested:

I love this theme of novels - it sounds similar to Wither, except more amazing - and I love the cover! AND it's royalty. 


  1. This has gotten a lot of attention because of the cover, but the story sure looks good too!
