Anticippppaaaation… The Selecton…and Evil Amazon Gnomes

“Waiting On” Wednesday [3]

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Masque of the Red DeathThis week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is: STILL Masque of the Red Death and now The Selection! These are sitting there so every time I check my other orders from Amazon they are teasing me with these two.. evil evil Amazon gnomes!

Not a huge YA person, but lately? There have been some STELLAR YA novels out there for everyone! All my book blogging people I stalk follow have talked about this, the lucky ones that have gotten an ARC. In fact in my related posts there are TONS of links to some recent reviews on both The Selection and Masque of the Read Death.

The Selection (Selection – Trilogy)

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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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.
