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

The One (The Selection #3)
Author: Kiera Cass 

Publisher: HarperTeen
Expected publication date: May 6th 2014

The Selection changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. And now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen.

America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon’s heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she’ll have to fight for the future she wants.

From the very first page of The Selection, this #1 New York Times bestselling series has captured readers’ hearts and swept them away on a captivating journey… Now, in The One, Kiera Cass delivers a satisfying and unforgettable conclusion that will keep readers sighing over this electrifying fairy-tale long after the final page is turned. 

Ok, so maybe it’s just because this dress kind of looks like my own wedding dress, but I really think the HarperTeen crew knocked it out of the park with this cover.

Me posing Selection style

My fave is still the original ice blue of The Selection, but MAN, the contrast of the mirrors, America’s hair, and the grey of the lettering is just gorgeous. Add to that the fact that putting all three covers together will make the whole set a twist on the colours of the American flag, and I’m just, like, GAH SO PRETTY + SYMBOLISM: 

Anyway, aside from the pretty, I’ve been waiting for THE ONE since I finished THE ELITE – and I’m pretty sure that if I have to wait until May, I’m going to explode from not knowing what happens! If you haven’t picked up this totally swoonworthy, totally fun series, you MUST. It is unputdownable. Ignore everything you’ve heard about it and the author, and just look at it as the ultimate in princess-y, fashion-y goodness – with a nice dose of dystopian to boot. 
Are you excited about THE ONE? Are you also crazy about the cover? Have you read The Selection series? If not, what are you waiting for (literally – let me know what you’re waiting for this week, as well)? Sound off in the comments!

I love hidden symbolism 😉 Also your wedding dress is BEAUTIFUL!!! I definitely want a dress like that on my wedding day :3

  5. I still need to read The Elite >__> I loved The Selection, and with The One coming out in May I'll probably be reading it soon. Perhaps closer to May so I don't have to wait as long, haha. And that cover is just so pretty. They all are.

    Great pick!
