"Waiting On" Wednesday (9)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting.


The Selection 
by Kiera Cass 
Expected Publication: April 24th, 2012  

Goodreads 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.

 
I just think that this book sound really interesting. Kind of like The Bachelor, which is weird because I don't watch TV much, and definitely not The Bachelor or any reality TV when I do. Also, the cover is just so pretty!

  4. I know that many people won't give this book a chance because of some unpleasant events... but I think I will check it out if CW decides to make a tv show out of it. ;D And the cover is just gorgeous!

    Here's my WoW. ♥

    1. Yeah, so much drama, but then, it gives the book free publicity, not the best publicity, but still! I love the cover :)

  5. I'm so glad that this is your WOW for this week! <3 There's so much negativity surrounding this book, but I've talked a little bit to the author and she's just so sweet and I don't think her book deserves it at all! That's why I'm super excited to get my hands on a copy of it too -- it sounds like it'd be such a blast to read! Plus, that cover is stunning! :)

    Amazing pick for your WOW, Jenn! <3

    1. Thank you :)
      I had heard about all the drama that was going on, but I don't really pay attention to it. If someone says something is bad, I'm more likely to go read it and see for myself. I think that people nitpick every little thing rather than just read and enjoy. So that's what I'm going to do, read and enjoy.
      Thanks for visiting :)
