"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is The Elite by Kiera Cass. Here's the synopsis:
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, she 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, the only reason I haven't featured this book before now is quite simply because I THOUGHT I ALREADY HAD. I am desperate with a capital D to read this book because I loved The Selection like woah. Enough to re-read it recently in anticipation for The Elite. I've been checking Netgalley EVERY DAY to see if it's up there but alas, it is not as of yet. I pre-ordered the book a million years ago and so it's not about getting a free book (it never is), I just want to read it NOW. 23rd April cannot come soon enough!
The Elite is published on 23rd April, 2013.
