Preview: 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.

First of all, THE. COVER. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. OMG. Okay, I think I'm done freaking out. It is sooooo pretty though. I really want to try that dress on... Sorry for my "judging-a-book-by-its-cover" ness, I just couldn't keep it in! 

Anyways, now that I got that out of my system, I am actually really excited by the potential of this book. I think Kiera Cass could really have something here! The plot intrigues me. It's not just your typical royalty romance novel, it's a contest. It seems like it will be a cross between The Princess Diaries and The Hunger Games. (both of which I love, so this should be a winner!) 

AND, this book is potentially being made into a television series! Which just makes me that much more excited about it! :)

keep readin' it write!
