Waiting on Wednesday: The Selection by Kiera Cass

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

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.


  1. Kind of sounds like a modern retelling of Esther, with a few exceptions.  
  2. Distopia!  Who doesn't like distopia?
  3. It just sounds like a great book.  There will be romance (possible love triangle), action, betrayal, and maybe a happy ending (?).  
  4. Interesting how the cover looks like there are different girls in the room, but they are all one girl in the same dress in a room of mirrors. 
What are you waiting on?

Happy Reading!
