Waiting on Wednesday #13

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The Selection by Kiera Cass

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.

WoW because: I remained immune to the hype about The Selection for a long time, but this week I cracked and became as uber-excited about it as everyone else. Honestly, I'm not sure if I'm more excited about the book, or the CW show (OMG, it stars Aimee Teegarden, aka Julie Taylor!), but the book's out first, so I'll start with that.


  1. Yay for armpitsniffing! I want to own this one sooo badly!!! >_< Same here, btw. First I was immune, then suddenly.. "I NEED THIS COME ON NOW NOW NOW!!" :'D

  2. You're quite strong for holding out on the hype until now! I gave in months ago, so the torture has been horrible haha. It sounds amazing and the cover is just divine...I'm excited for the TV show too, but mostly because it's Ethan Peck and I think he has a delicious voice. He's a friend of a friend and she says he's perfect for the part he was casted for too, so that's promising.

    Great pick!
