Waiting On Wednesday

I love Wednesdays!  It's when I get to tell you what books I am dying to read that are coming out this year. This is a fabulous meme by Jill at Breaking The Spine.  Go over and see what she and the other blogs want to read as well.  Heck, link up with her and tell us what you want to read. 

Just look at this cover!  

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.

Expected publication: April 24, 2012

Doesn't this book sound good??

There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.

Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared.
The night Roz Hart had a fight with her.
The night Roz can’t remember.
Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer. This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else. 
Publication Date: October 23, 2012

This sounds so interesting to me!  It has a twist with the girl having macular degeneration which definitely plays a huge part in the story.  I can't wait to read it!

So what are you looking forward to reading?

Also, I am SO excited that this book came out yesterday!!!  I cannot wait to read it!
