Waiting on Wednesday {50}

Posted 7 March, 2012 by Danny in Blog, Danny, Featured, Meme, Uncategorized / 18 Comments

“Waiting on” Wednesday is hosted weekly by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Today, I’d like to share one book I’m super duper excited about ever since I first heard of it last year when I was at BEA!

The Selection

Book I in The Selection series!

Publication: April 24th 2012 by HarperTeen
Pre-order your own: amazon (Paperback, Kindle) | B&N | IndieBound

Gosh isn’t his cover the most beautiful cover you’ve seen? 

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

Last year at BEA I met her at the Author Speedating and I loved her instantly, when she then talked about her book I was enthralled! It sounds absolutely great and seeing now this gorgeous cover I want to read it NOW!

I really hope it lives up to its promises!

Much love and Happy Wednesday!

And now, please tell me what you are waiting for this week!

  1. Great pick, Danny!! I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this one, and I can't wait to read it!! I seriously want that dress. Seriously.

  2. Truly Bookish

    I'm pretty sure I'll be reading this one, especially since they are shooting a pilot for a TV show based on it. Very curious about it. Great pick and I totally want that dress!_NC_Truly Bookish

  3. I was looking forward to this one as well. But then all this author-blogger drama happened and I didn’t really like Kiera Cass’s response. So, now I’m not sure anymore though it’s petty to judge a book by it’s author.
