Thirty-five beautiful girls. Thirty-five beautiful rivals…

It’s the chance of a lifetime and 17-year-old America Singer should feel lucky. She has been chosen for The Selection, a reality TV lottery in which the special few compete for gorgeous Prince Maxon's love.

Swept up in a world of elaborate gowns, glittering jewels and decadent feasts, America is living a new and glamorous life. And the prince takes a special interest in her, much to the outrage of the others.

Rivalry within The Selection is fierce and not all of the girls are prepared to play by the rules. But what they don’t know is that America has a secret – one which could throw the whole competition… and change her life forever.

I've known about this for a little while, but its impending release is definitely getting me more and more eager to read it.   This does sound somewhat fairy tale like in that the girls are competing for a prince, but with the very current reality TV twist to it, making it sound a whole new twist.  I really want to see how this is done & hope it can thoroughly enthral me!!


  1. I'm really excited to read this as well! Every time I see it, I get just that little bit more excited. Such a shame that it's released in June here!! Not sure I like all the pink of the UK cover though :S

  2. Oh I didn't know this was being published in the UK. I prefer the US cover though.

  3. Wait, this cover looks, imo, better than the US cover! LOVE it!

    Patricia // My WOW

  4. CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS! Cover color aside, I think that dress is pretty gorgeous. :D

    My WoW

  5. This is possibly the only book with a pretty girl in a posh frock on the front that can overcome my dislike of that type of cover enough to get me excited. Great pick!

    My WoW for this week is here if you'd like to take a look.

  6. I put this on hold at the library already so when it comes out I'm one of the first to get it. I can't wait! My Waiting On Wednesday

  7. Ooooh I love that version of the cover! The pink is so pretty! I'm eagerly waiting for this one too!!! Great pick :)

    Here's my WoW!

  8. I quite like the pink - maybe I am just feeling girly......
