Waiting on The Selection

OMG, that cover! Plus, the whole arranged bride/dystopian future plot sounds very enticing. Can't wait to read this one.


The Selection
by Kiera Cass
HarperTeen
April 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.

  2. I hadn't heard of this one yet, but it sounds good. But I can't help thinking the girl on the cover is trying to surreptitiously sniff her armpit. :)

  3. Great pick! I'll be reading this one this week thanks to an ARC tour I'm participating in. I can't wait to see what's what.

    Thanks for stopping by! :-)

  4. I loved this one! My only problem is that they are marketing it as the next Hunger Games which it totally isn't. Here are my WoW picks

    1. That's pretty typical, though.
      When Harry Potter was popular, everything was "the next Harry Potter" and when Twilight was hot, everything was, "just like Twilight"
