Waiting on Wednesday: The Selection by Kiera Cass

The Selection sounds like a second chance at a Modelland-esque story…

Title & Author: The Gathering Storm by Katerina Alexandrovna

Genre: YA- Fantasy

Publication Date: January 10, 2012

Description: “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.

Why I’m Stoked: This book sounds exciting and interesting and different. It strangely reminds me of a mix between the Bible’s story of Ester and Modelland…wow, could those two books be any different?! Also, I am attracted to this cover! It’s definitely unique!

What new books are you dying to read?

  • I had this as my WoW before, too- I mean, LOOK at that cover! Also, I read that the author had previously self-pubbed, and this is her first book from a publishing house, so I’ll be looking forward to reading Kiera Cass.

    You can find my WoW here.
