Waiting on Wednesday #3

I'm not usually a fan of book covers with generic girls in dresses on the front, and I tend to not like the story much either. The Selection though... it looks beautiful. I adore the reflections and the colours - it's just a little different from all those other books on my shelves.

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.

The plot sounds perfect too. I have a weird penchant for dire situations happening to a randomly selected person (*waves at The Hunger Games*) and this seems to have an almost reality TV show aspect, but in a much classier way.

Add in a gorgeous Prince and all those wonderfully positive reviews that have been popping up lately, and I can't wait to get my hands on this on April 24th!


  1. I have to admit I'm a little over girls on the covers of books - but I love the dress in that cover. It's definitely eye-catching.

  2. I'm really interested in this book, sounds original. Besides, the cover is gorgeous!

  3. I LOOOVE This cover! A friend on GR read this and hated it though so now I'm a bit wary of it but it still sounds awesome!
