Giveaway: Win an ARC of The Selection


Hey everyone! I am giving away an ARC of The Selection by Kiera Cass. If you haven't heard of The Selection, it's about thirty-five girls who compete to marry Prince Maxon. The book is told through America's point of view. She's hesitant about the competition, especially since the boy she loves is a class below her and therefore unworthy. As the competition continues, she begins to slowly fall for Prince Maxon and starts dreaming of a world unlike any she has ever known. I like to think of it as The Bachelor meets Cinderella.

To enter, all you have to do is fill the Rafflecopter form below. I will be checking the comments, so be sure to leave a comment about what you would do to grab the prince's (or princess') attention if you were in a competition for their heart. This giveaway is only open to US participants and will end April 18th. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

"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."

  1. I wouldn't try to put on airs or do anything different. If the Prince couldn't see how awesome I was with just being myself, then he wasn't someone I'd want to be with anyway.

  2. I would be myself! Because I'm awesome! ;p

  3. I'd walk up and introduce myself. I mean, I'd be right in front of his face, he'd notice me.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I would most likely be myself. Who wouldn't like that?!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I'm really shy, so it definitely wouldn't be easy for me. I guess I'd try to be myself. If he doesn't like me for who I am, then I guess it wasn't meant to be.

  6. I'd just be myself -- when I *try* to get attention, it normally backfires and ends up being the WRONG kind of attention. So I'd just be me -- I'm very comfortable with guys, and can talk football with the best of 'em, so I'd become his friend first. And then, of course, he'd realize he was MADLY in love with me ;o)

  7. Thanks for the giveaway!
    I figure that most girls would be trying to outdo one another in glamor and appeal, so I'd be myself - plain, conservative, shy, and bookish.

  8. I think I'd just be myself, just simple and sweet! (I've watched too many girls make fools of themselves on The Bachelor!!)

    I would be myself because I wouldn't want to win the prince over just for him to find out I was never who I said I was.

  10. If I was in a competition, I would be myself with the prince.

  11. I seriously don't think I could do this but if I had to - I try to be myself and find his weakness. Cooking might help - that's one thing I do well.

  12. I would have him dress down and spend the day as a "commoner." We would spend a day just being ourselves without all the hype.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I would just be myself. He would love my sparkling personality!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hmm, I don't have cooking skills or anything like that, but I'm artistic. So maybe make something for him...?

    Aw I've been dying to read The Selection! Thanks so much for the giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'd probably try to do something that makes him laugh! Or make him food. And then eat most of it myself. :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've always been way too shy when it comes to that! I honestly don't know what I'd do.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I would bake him something he likes for example cupcakes because who doesn't love cupcakes!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think at the end of the day, the best way to get the Prince's attention is to just be myself. In the end, the prince won't pick me becuase he's impressed by me, but becuase he likes being around me.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Even though I'm somewhat shy, I think I would work up the nerve to introduce myself along with a sweet smile .... then I'd say something funny to make him laugh! ;D

    ReplyDelete
  20. I have no idea! I was so shy I don't think I would have even entered. Maybe I would have been a maid or something and caught the prince's eye. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would just hope that we had some common interests and he would fall in love with me by having a good talk and doing something we both enjoy! I want to read this book so bad! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  23. I think the best thing to do is be yourself, be real because if role switched and I was in that spot I would look at the person that I can see truly showing themselves and not playing a game or using tricks to grab my attention.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'd show off my smarts, and then kick his butt at tennis or badmittion. :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Can't wait to read this book. Looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Catch up on episodes of the Bachelor to see what works and what doesn't! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd take him on a roadtrip. And not just your usual roadtrip, but it would be a survival kind of roadtrip, with tents and campfires and mosquitoes. That will certainly grab his attention. ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Okay, this is kind of a lame answer, but I don't think I'd do anything other than be myself. Otherwise, really, what's the point of getting him/her when it's based on anything else?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'd be myself. Become a good friend of his, let him confide in me, show him that he can trust me and just have fun. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would try to become friends. Like just sit and talk and get to know each other.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would just be myself and hope that we were a match.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi everyone! I was just wondering if you could come visit my writing blog; I'm in desperate need of reviews and opinions.
    Please?

    Thank you so much!

  33. I would read to him every night (a la Ester)...and if that didn't work, I would not be above resorting to outright catty measures. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd take a tip from one of Indiana Jones' students and write "Love You" on my eyelids. :-P

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would act totally uninterested. Then maybe I would stand out from the others.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'd make them laugh! Or cook for them!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I probably wouldn't do anything special. Though I do have mad cooking skills... ;P

    ReplyDelete
  38. Impress him with the way I read really quick!
    ...No?
    Okay, I'll be myself, then. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm made of awesome, so I'd be my awesome smart self.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh my gosh, that's a hard question. I think I'd ask him a lot about himself, because I think the other competitors would be trying to talk a lot about themselves.

    Thanks for having this!

  42. I would try to be myself and not all up in his face because that would be annoying!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I would do whatever my competitors weren't to get a leg up and to get noticed

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'd be myself! :D And hope it'd be enough. If not, then he's not worth it! :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. I would wear pretty clothes and makeup and just be myself. I also heard that being confidant with yourself gets their attention too so I would do that as best I can.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is awesome! Thank you so much for hosting this! I've been looking everywhere for a chance to win one of these!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would try my inner-suave skills and introduce myself.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I would just be myself, if I had to act differently then he wouldn't want me for me, and then I wouldn't want him anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would just be myself! I wouldn't want to be with someone who didn't like me for me.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I hate pretending to be something I'm not so I would just be myself.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'd probably be myself, first. I would also wear a black dress that stood out with all the other happy colored dresses the girls were wearing. I'd be different & unique, someway. Thanks 4 the giveaway. Really want to read this book!

  52. I would be myself and really find out if we would be a match.

  53. I just came across your blot and I really love it already! I can tell that I will be visiting a lot. Amazing giveaway btw!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Go up to him, give him a rose and introduce myself.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I would introduce myself to him and ask him about his favorite book.

    ReplyDelete
  56. To grab his attention? I'd probably join him in something he liked. Ex: if he liked basketball, I'd join a game! But that's just to grab it. If I didn't hold his attention, then I would just leave the competition, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I get very quiet when I am unsure about something, which if you knew me, is very weird. So, I would say that I would probably hang back from the other girls clamoring to get the prince's attention. When it was my turn to talk to him, I'd just try to get the lump out of my throat and be myself.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I noticed a lot of people are saying "be myself." I'll be myself around this prince too, but I don't necessarily think it will set me apart that much. I actually love expressing myself through the arts: music, art, dancing, etc. I think that's how i would be myself around him and get his attention. As long as I don't cook anything, I'll be fine :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would smile a lot! Had braces when I was young and therefore have a nice smile :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I would do everything i can to get it

    ReplyDelete
  61. I would be a little standoffish and act as unimpressed or even bored as possible. While the other girls are fawning, I would shine as being unattainable

    ReplyDelete
  62. Be creative, imaginative, and original!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Amaze him with uniqueness and imagination and cleverness!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Honestly, probably nothing. I'm REALLY shy.

    ReplyDelete
  65. i would probably just be myself. surely he wouldn't like someone who was trying to be someone they really aren't. i'd just have to hope being myself is interesting enough : )

    ReplyDelete
  66. I would try to be myself. Anything else would lead to a lifetime of work trying to maintain the facade.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I've been dying to read this one! The cover is gorgeoussss. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh -- to answer the question (which I totally missed before) -- I would try to make him laugh :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. I would totally make a fool out of myself for trying. But maybe that'll grab his attention. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  70. I would just try to be myself. There is only so much you can to do to attract attention so if they don't notice you then so be it!!!
