Waiting on Wednesday (70)

Hi and happy Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to show books we can't wait for!

This week's pick 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.

This sounds like a really great book. I'm loving the actual idea of having a Selection. (It sounds horrible but really cool!) And with a main character by the name of American Singer this better be good! I loving the cover, too!

I can't wait for this book! It looks so amazing. I have a feeling there may be a love triangle in the works though.

This cover just draws me in. I love it. And this sounds unusual, which is hard to do these days in YA.
