Waiting on Wednesday: The One by Kiera Cass

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
spotlighting upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Raina's pick this week:

The One
by Kiera Cass
The Selection #3
Expected publication: May 6th, 2014 by HarperTeen
Genre: Young Adult Dystopia | Romance

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.

Why I'm waiting: I recently started, devoured, and throughly enjoyed the first two books and novella in The Selection series. I must know what happens next! Book three's cover, just revealed last week? I flove. The girl, same on all three covers, is a little older and more beautiful, mischievous, maybe even a little clearer, sharper, than the other two (or is it just that way to me?). The red, white, and blue for each book is perfect, all so gorgeous, and The One awash in white better mean what a beautiful white dress, or at least the color, symbolizes. May 6th ... you're too far away. I'm engaged in this series and eagerly awaiting the big day. Truth be told, I'm freaking antsy.
