Fashion Forward Fiction Friday #1

Kindred Dreamheart
 Hosted By Kindred Dreamheart

Fashion Forward Fiction Friday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Katrina of Kindred Dreamheart. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

♥  Post a book cover that has style
♥  Tell us why you like it.
♥  Also, hypothetically speaking:  if it was in your closet, where and how would you wear it.
♥  Share the title & author, too, so that other FFFF participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like!  (A description would be nice also, but its not mandatory.)

This week I am featuring 
The Selection by Kiera Cass 
Expected Publication April 24th 2012

The Selection (The Selection, #1)
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.

I am drawn to books that have fabulous dresses! I LOVE this dress! It is so puffy and blue and pretty! I would never actually have anywhere to wear this but I would have loved to have had it for my prom or to have it for any other formal event. If I one day got married I would love to wear it in white or make my bridesmaids wear it in purple. If it is a formal event I like to do things big and this dress is big and beautiful! It completely drew me in to read the description. Once I read the description I was completely sold on reading the book.The book sounds like a dystopian royal version of The Bachelor. Having to leave behind your secret love to compete for someone else. But then possibly falling for him and the royal life you could have. Sounds like drama and heartbreak. I can't wait until April to read this!
