Coming Attraction: The Selection

I thought for this year's Fairy Tale Fortnight, since there are so many amazing books and not nearly enough time to cover them all, that I would share some Coming Attractions of fairy tale retellings and fairy tale-esque books, to get them on your radar.  I'm also going to be posting some Tales from the Vault, of books that are already out and waiting for you to read them... 
Enjoy, and let me know of any you come across that you think should be featured!

The Selection by Kiera Cass
Amazon | Goodreads
Fairy Tale Retelling/Dystopia, 327 pages
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by HarperTeen

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.

I wanted to be able to review this one for you guys for FTF but alas, it was not to be. But it's coming out super soon! Who's planning on picking this one up?

  1. I have been wanting to read this one for SO long! The cover is what originally caught my attention then the description, yes please! I was lucky enough to win a copy after entering countless giveaways for it now I hope it arrives soon.

  2. I finished this one about a week ago and I was surprised at how good it was and much I enjoyed it.

  3. I didn't really think of this as a fairy tale book, but I guess it makes sense, what with the prince and all. I've been coveting this one for a while, and I can't wait to finally read it!

  4. The Selection looks so good! I's on my TBR list and has been for a while.

  5. Definately can't wait for this one to come out! I love the cover too =)

  6. Not only can I not wait (been waiting since the cover was released) but I'm going to the signing which is what she has listed as her release date so I'm hoping for a big deal there!!! I cannot wait. Meeting some other bloggers for the first time too! Win-Win! I'll be bringing back a signed copy for someone to win on my blog.



Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
