Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Expected Publication Date: April 24, 2012
Summary from Goodreads: 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’m Waiting: Because this book has hooked me from day one. The cover, the idea–everything. I know that some people have said bad things about it. I know some people have said good things about it. I’m totally ready to forget EVERYTHING and just READ THIS BOOK. It is literally ridiculous how badly I want my hands on this. Don’t ask me WHY I’m so excited, but I just am. Plus, this is becoming a CW show. The CW has some of my guilty pleasures (VD? Nikita? I shouldn’t, and yet…) This could either go amazingly or horribly and I’m delighted to find out which!
