Waiting on Wednesday (8)

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine ,that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week:

The Selection By Kiera Cass
Expected publication: April 24th 2012
By HarperTeen

Blurb: (from Goodreads)

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.

Blurb aside, that cover is, as I've told you before, simply amazing. It's one of those covers that convince me to read the book even before reading the blurb. I did read the blurb though, and I think it's very, very intriguing.

So, what's your pick this week?
