“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

This week’s WoW is definitely on my must-buy-as-soon-as-it-comes-out list:

The hotly-anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller The Selection.

Thirty-five girls came to the palace to compete in the Selection. All but six have been sent home. And only one will get to marry Prince Maxon and be crowned princess of Illea.

America still isn’t sure where her heart lies. When she’s with Maxon, she’s swept up in their new and breathless romance, and can’t dream of being with anyone else. But whenever she sees Aspen standing guard around the palace, and is overcome with memories of the life they planned to share. With the group narrowed down to the Elite, the other girls are even more determined to win Maxon over—and time is running out for America to decide.

Just when America is sure she’s made her choice, a devastating loss makes her question everything again. And while she’s struggling to imagine her future, the violent rebels that are determined to overthrow the monarchy are growing stronger and their plans could destroy her chance at any kind of happy ending.

If you’ve read my review of The Selection, this one’s a no-brainer. I’ve basically been waiting for this book since I finished the first one – I was just waiting for a cover so that I could post this as a WoW pick. But seriously, look at that cover! Look how perfectly it works The Selection cover!
If you love frocks (SO MANY FROCKS!), dystopias, romance and reality TV, this one might be for you. I know it sounds fluffy, but I am betting that there’s a lot more to this series than met the eye in The Selection – I’m really looking forward to seeing what Kiera Cass does with the whole rebel thing. And, of course, with the Maxon-America-Aspen triangle. 
Are you into The Selection Series? What are you waiting to read this week?

  1. The girl's dress on the cover looks nothing like 'elite', haha! Anyway, The Selection's been collecting dust in my to-read pile since, like, July; I really should get to it!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW 🙂
