The Selection by Kiera Cass
Publication Date: April 24, 2012
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 336


Goodreads Synopsis

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.

Okay, can we just talk about this cover??? How freaking amazing is this cover??? Girls in dresses may be used a whole lot, but this one definitely tops the cake for me. I go to GR just to look at it! Along this this fanfrickentastic cover, this book sounds fabulous! Dystopian romance... Yes please!

Please, give me some great recommendations for YA books. I really need some!

This one has such a pretty cover! The story kind of makes me think of a debutante ball/reality dating show, which sounds pretty awesome :0)

This book sounds great! It kind of reminds me of Shannon Hale's Princess Academy..except with slightly older characters. It sounds like there will be a great love triangle in it as well! Nice WOW choice :)

This is MY WoW pick for this week, too! I love the cover. I'm going to read the book JUST for that cover. The summary sounds cool, too, but the cover is pure WIN.
