Cover Crazy (33): The Selection

Cover Crazy is a weekly meme that was created by Tawni over at The Book Worms to show which cover(s) you are absolutely going crazy over!

This week, I love the cover for The Selection by Kiera Crass!

The Selection

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.

Here's why I love it:
  • The dress!  'Nuff said.  Actually, I'll elaborate a little bit.  It kind of reminds be of a cake, but in a good way because it's like one of those really beautiful cakes!  The fluffy skirt is just beautiful.
  • The overall color of the cover gives me this cold, shivery feeling, but I really like it.
  • It's also really cool how she's being reflected in one of those infinity type mirrors.  They actually really creep me out but it adds a lot to the cover.
  • The crown on top of the title really gives you a clue as to what it's about, which is that the book is about a competition for the heart of Prince Maxon and the crown.
Tell me what you're going crazy over today!
