Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This Wednesday, I’m waiting on The Selection by Kiera Cass, releasing in April 2012.

Summary (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.

The summary sounds like this is the futuristic version of Princess Academy. And since I loved Princess Academy, I hope I’m going to end up loving this book, too. AND THAT COVER! I thought I was tired of seeing girls in pretty dresses on covers, but this is one weird (and cool) dress, and that lovely blue screams READ ME I’M AWESOME.

And I never turn down a book like that.

What are YOU guys waiting on this Wednesday? Drop a link; I’d love to stop by!
