"Waiting On" Wednesday

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Selection
By Kiera Cass
Publication Date: April 24th 2012

Goodreads Summary:
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.

There's a lot of buzz about this book at the moment so I'm interested to see if it lives up to it's expectations! The Selection has also just been optioned for TV and has already cast it's three lead roles: Aimee Teegarden (from Disney's PROM), William Moseley (Peter Pevensie in The Chronicles of Narnia films) and Ethan Peck (Marshall in Gossip Girl). So with a TV show already in the making, I'm thinking The Selection is going to be HUGE.
