Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. I created the image above from a photo I took, and any other blog may use it if they link back to Gwen & Kate’s Library!

The Heir by Kiera Cass

Series: The Selection Series, Book 4!!!

Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Dystopia

Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won Prince Maxon’s heart. Now the time has come for Princess Eadlyn to hold a Selection of her own. Eadlyn doesn’t expect her Selection to be anything like her parents’ fairy-tale love story. But as the competition begins, she may discover that finding her own happily ever after isn’t as impossible as she always thought.

Publication Date: May 5th, 2015

The Queen by Kiera Cass

Series: The Selection Series, Book 0.4 (64 page novella)

Genres: Young Adult, Romance, Dystopia


Before America Singer’s story began, another girl came to the palace to compete for the hand of a different prince….

Don’t miss this digital original novella set in the captivating world of Kiera Cass’s #1 New York Times bestselling Selection series. This prequel story takes place before the events of The Selection and is told from the point of view of Prince Maxon’s mother.

Publication Date: December 2nd, 2014

Gwen’s Comments: I can’t believe there will actually be a 4th Selection book! The One was a fantastic conclusion to what felt like a trilogy, but apparently Kiera Cass isn’t done yet! The Heir comes out on May 5th, 2015, the same day as last week’s WOW choice, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and The Queen, another novella, comes out earlier on December 2nd. The covers are stunning and the descriptions sound promising, so I can’t wait!

Have you read the Selection series? Are you enough of a fan to continue on to the “next generation?”

      I know — I love all the Selection book covers! Big dresses seem to be a popular book cover trend these days. ~Gwen
