This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is...

Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: April 24, 2012

Summary: 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 Waiting~

Well, first oh-my-goodness the cover! I could seriously sit and stare at that cover all day, drooling over that dress. Then, there is the story-- a competition between 35 girls to win a crown?! This sounds like it is going to be amazing! I am so intrigued by this synopsis, and honestly cannot wait to get my hands on this book.

Leave me a link so I can go check out your WoW posts for this week too! Happy Reading everyone :)

  1. I put this one on my covet list a few weeks ago too! I love the cover. The colors are gorgeous... even if it does look like a bird exploded to make that dress.

    The story sounds intriguing too. I can imagine crazy antics taking place in such a competition. I read a Princess and the Pea retelling not to long ago that sounds similar to this synopsis. I enjoyed the book, so I want to give this one a try too.

  34. I am excited about this book too. I featured a few weeks back. I was lucky to interview Kiera on the blog last week - if you are interested, you should check it out. She's pretty funny. If you get a chance, you should also check out her videos on YouTube. There's some pretty hilarious stuff there. I hope you do get this book. Too bad we have to wait until April.

  38. I did a cover review on this book not too long ago! It sounds like the ultimate Cinderella story, only the MC doesn't appear to be a pauper. Throw in the deliciously gorgeous cover and spine-tingling title, and it's a must-read!
