"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!
This week I'm waiting on:
The Selection by Kiera Cass
Publication date: 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.
Why I want it: Ok, that cover for starters, is fantastic. I love how her reflections have different poses, and of course that dress is fabulous. The storyline reminds me a little bit of The Bachelor and Lauren DeStefano's Wither. I think it'll be really interesting to see what Cass's "world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels" ends up looking like.
Interesting tidbit of info: The Selection has actually been picked up by The CW to be made into a TV series. Visit Kiera Cass's website for more info!
What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?
