Waiting On Wednesday (4)

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted at Breaking The Spine, where we talk about the books that we are eagerly anticipating.

This book sounds beyond amazing, with a beautiful cover to match! What more could you possibly want? It's to be published on 24th April 2012.

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.

Will not be reading this one, despite how pretty the cover is. The author launched an attack over a negative review on Goodreads posted by Wendy Darling and the link is here and there's more here. What's going on with authors lately? Suddenly it's okay to go after every negative review for your book?

  1. Sadly, I will not be reading this one either. (Despite that I have posted it as my Wishlist post... That was pre rant.)
