Wishlist Wednesday #69

Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly post put on by Dani at the Pen to Paper blog. Where you post a book you really really want to read or one that has been on your wishlist! If you've seen my to-read list on Goodreads then you know there are plenty that I could use. So I decided to use this feature every Wednesday.

Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
Release Date: April 24, 2012
Series Number: 1

Goodreads Summary:
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.

My Thoughts:
I have seen a lot of this book/series around the blogoshpere. I really like the covers of the first 3 that I have seen and it sounds really interesting. Have any of you read this one? What are your thoughts on it?


  1. I've heard of this book, though I've never read it. I hope you get it soon.

  2. I liked the first book a lot, the second one wasn't bad but not as good as the first.

  3. Good choice! I own this book but haven't gotten to it yet. Hope you get to read it soon!

  4. I know this series has a lot of fans (although I've never read the books myself)! Enjoy!


  5. Great choice. I have this but haven't read it but a ton of my blogging buddies love it. The covers are fantastic!! Thanks for stopping by my WW.

  6. I've read the first book in this series. I think you'll enjoy it! I hope you get it soon. Have a great day!

  7. Would not really be my kind of book but heard a lot of good things about it. Hope you get to read it soon!

  8. I wanna say good pick buuuut... Even though the book was unputfownable, it was bad. It's basically Bachelor show, but in a wannabe dystopian setting. The problem is the dystopia part is almost nonexistable...
    Hope you'll like it more than I did :)

  9. I've been tossing up whether I should read this one or not, since I've heard mixed things about the sequel. Hopefully you enjoy it when you read it!
    Thanks for stopping by my WW :)
