Waiting On Wednesday (Beautiful Days)

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for some bright, young things:

Beautiful Days by Anna Godbersen

Series or Stand-Alone: Series, Bright Young Things #2
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: September 20, 2011
Pages: 416
Per Order It: Amazon
The exciting sequel to Bright Young Things, by the bestselling author of The Luxe, promises romance, adventure, and intrigue in the final days of the Roaring Twenties.

In this must-have sequel to Bright Young Things, Cordelia and Letty are small-town girls no longer. Letty is ready at last to chase her Broadway dreams. Cordelia thought she lost her true love, but a chance meeting will change her fortune—and her future. The unflappable flapper Astrid Donal has promised herself to Charlie Grey, Cordelia’s half-brother, but isn’t sure their love is true enough to survive. And a bitter rivalry will ensnare them all in a dangerous feud played out in the speakeasies of Manhattan and on the great lawns of Long Island. As these bright young things live out their beautiful days in the summer of 1929, they find romance and heartbreak, adventure and intrigue, new friends and unexpected rivals.

Fans of The Luxe series, A Great and Terrible Beauty, Martin Scorsese’s hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire, and, of course, The Great Gatsby, will delight in the Jazz Age setting, a time when girls were enjoying newfound freedom and excitement could be found behind any door in Manhattan. --Goodreads
You don't know how long I have waited for this book.  This is definitely some book to covet.  I love this series as well as Godbersen's writing style.  I can't wait for this book to come out!  And, an added bonus, it comes out two days before my birthday!  Anyway, not only does it sound amazing, but I love this cover.  It is gorgeous; I think it truly captures the essence of the 1920s. 

So, what are you waiting for this week?
