"Waiting On" Wednesday - The Selection

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

This week I'm waiting on...

The Selection by Kiera Cass

 * Book will be released April 24, 2012

Check out the description 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."

This books cover really catches your attention it's pretty yet menacing at the same time.  It looks like it's going to be kind of a mix of romantic/dystopian.  With the intriguing premise and an interesting looking character, I'm looking forward to reading this book.
