Waiting on Wednesday - The One (The Selection #3) by Kiera Cass

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. For my first WOW post of 2014, I've chosen to highlight "the one" book (that already has a cover to share) that I'm most looking forward to this year, the one that I just don't know if I can wait until May to read.  But even if I got an e-galley of it to read somehow, I would still have to go out and buy it for the cover.  Here is the information from Goodreads.com:

The Selection changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. And now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen.

America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

From the very first page of The Selection, this #1 New York Times bestselling series has captured readers' hearts and swept them away on a captivating journey... Now, in The One, Kiera Cass delivers a satisfying and unforgettable conclusion that will keep readers sighing over this electrifying fairy-tale long after the final page is turned.


I don't normally include the little part at the end of the blurbs, but I just love the ending sentence, I can't wait to "sigh over the electrifying fairy tale long after the page is turned."  I love the cover, it's so beautiful.  How about you?  Have you read this series?  Are you as anxious as I am to read this conclusion?  If this isn't your series, what are you waiting for this week?

  9. I could not locate your contact information so I have posted here. My name is David Meredith and I very recently came across your book blog. I have just released a novel - The Reflections of Queen Snow White - on Amazon.com in the Kindle Store this past October and would be happy to send you a complimentary copy if you would be interested in reviewing it. I have included the dust cover synopsis below. If you are interested, just reply to this e-mail and I will happily send you your free copy right away. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response!

    What happens when "happily ever after" has come and gone?

    On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven's wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven's fiancé, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White's own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing:

    The king is dead.

    The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old.

    It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what "happily ever after" really means?

    Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.

    1. Thanks for the offer, but I don't think it is really something I have time for right now, doesn't sound quite exactly like what I tend to read. But good luck with it!
