The Selection by Keira Cass

I Rarely Read Books... Especially Now that i am already in the field having my Practicum. I do a lot of stuffs and I too lazy reading Books. But then as i visit some bookstores here in Philippines there is one book that Captured my Eye.. The Selection Series By Keira Cass.
I am Attracted to the Book Cover, the girl in Powder Blue Ball Gown made me wonder what the story is all about. The Fact that i Love Fashion, Gowns and Princess stories made me Interested in Reading this Series.
These Covers are Perfect

See, I wish i could also rock that dresses.

PLOT:
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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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'm so excited for the last book... sadly, it will be released summer 2014 (huhuhu) Can't wait. How i wish it will also be adapted as a movie. I'd like to see their costumes as well as the set and the leading men.
