We hate to admit we do it, but we all judge a book by its cover. It's the initial selling point of the book - the first thing we see that grabs our attention so we pick it up off the shelf. This meme is a fun little way to show off those books that were blessed by the cover gods, hosted by The Book Worms.
This week's cover I adore is:
The Selection by Kiera Cross
OK, go ahead and stare. Yes, it's that freaking gorgeous. But I sounds like the cover is doing the novel justice because the description sounds just as intoxicating as that amazing art.
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.
