Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming book they’re most looking forward to read :)
Let me count the ways in which The Debutantes by Cora Harrison is going to be THE book for me! First of all, London. I lived in London. I am a London fangirl for life. Second – the 19 freaking 20s. We ALWAYS hear about New York in the 1920s but nobody ever mentions London and FINALLY here comes The Debutantes set in London in the 1920s. SO IN. Not to mention Prince George and dancing and jazz and parties and SECRETS and I’m sorry – have I not convinced you yet that you need to read The Debutantes?
The Debutantes by Cora Harrison – 08/02/2012
It’s 1923 and London is a whirl of jazz, dancing and parties. Violet, Daisy, Poppy and Rose Derrington are desperate to be part of it, but stuck in an enormous crumbling house in the country, with no money and no fashionable dresses, the excitement seems a lifetime away. Luckily the girls each have a plan for escaping their humdrum country life: Rose wants to be a novelist, Poppy a jazz musician and Daisy a famous film director. Violet, however, has only one ambition: to become the perfect Debutante, so that she can go to London and catch the eye of Prince George, the most eligible bachelor in the country. But a house as big and old as Beech Grove Manor hides many secrets, and Daisy is about to uncover one so huge it could ruin all their plans – ruin everything – forever.
I mean, seriously. Doesn’t The Debutantes book look freaking awesome? What are you guys waiting for? Let me know!
