May 2014′s official book club book is:
Title: The Selection
Author: Kiera Cass
The Overview: 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 a palace and compete for the heart of 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.
So what happens now?

Otherwise, you are all invited to join in the fun!
We will be reading The Selection throughout the rest of May and geeking out about it on our official Facebook page, followed by a meeting at Menchies Frozen Yogurt for those of you in the Southern Utah area.
This blog reaches a global audience, so not everybody will be able to make it to the meetings. Because of that, if you read the book and want to be included in the discussions, Charlotte and I will be willing to host a twitter conversation (#escaperealitybc) for anybody who shows interest (just send me a message through our Facebook group, or leave a comment).
I hope you all enjoy the book! :-)
