My Shelf Candy pick this week is:
The Selection (The Selection Trilogy) Keira Cass
Okay, so I know a lot of you might be thinking – another cover with a girl in a beautiful dress?! But LOOK at it. I mean its stunning. and it is so much more than a girl in a dress. First, the color…. that color is beautiful. It’s icy yet warm, reminicent of the sea and the sky and it is also a hint or royalty in it. I think the royalty vibe (for me) comes from the crown-like graphic with the title. And how about that title…. The Selection. Just what exactly is this girl being “selected” for?? At the time I found this cover there was no book synopsis on amazon. It said it would be added soon. But I did see where it is a dystopian…. intriguing yes? And given the genre I would bet money that the “selection” isn’t something ordinary. Okay so back to the cover love…. is she posing in front of a mirror? I know the poses are different in the background but when I first looked I thought she was standing in front of mirrors and her image was being reflected. Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t. Is she posing? Who for? Is there water involved in this cover? The minute I saw this book I was instantly drawn in.
Do I have any details??? I have the release date: April 24, 2012. The book is on amazon now and has a few reviews (i think it was an average 4 star rating) and the sales ranking is really good for a book that hasn’t even been released yet!!
I just love this book and I am so curious to know more about it. I definitely will be keeping my eye out for more info.
So what do you think?
