Waiting on Wednesday (15)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week, I am waiting on The Elite by Kiera Cass (4/23/13):

Description on GoodReads:
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
So, I fell in love with The Selection already. It was just such a fun mix of dystopia, fairy tale, and reality tv show. I loved the love triangle. I loved the crazy society that doesn’t seem too far off from other more modern day caste systems. I found the whole book to just be so much fun to read! And the sequel sounds just as promising. I’m dying to know which boy America picks. And I really want to know what happens in regards to the people rebelling. I don’t know how I can wait for April. Also, Loving the pretty dress covers!
