Waiting on Wednesday (1): The Selection



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we showcase upcoming releases we are anticipating.


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.



Reason: 
First off, that cover?! Gorgeous!!! Second, dystopia=automatic interest. It is my favorite genre after all. However, I must say that the plot synopsis is what really drew me in. 35 girls fighting for 1 guy? Talk about drama! I also love that she is reluctant because that means she'll be defiant and stand up for what she believes which are characteristics that I love. This sounds like an interesting dystopia with a compelling romance. Hate turned love perhaps? 


What are y'all waiting on this Wednesday?
