Waiting on Wednesday (13)


For those who don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme where we get to let everyone know about what books we are eagerly anticipating the release of. WoW is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Want to participate? Follow the link, post your own WoW entry on your blog, and leave your link on her blog!

OK, so I absolutely LOVE Anna Godbersen, and have already read all four books in her Luxe series. I also read Bright Young Things, which is the first in a new series that centers around a group of girls living in the Roaring Twenties-- the next installment of this will be coming out later this year, and I am pretty psyched! Here are the details for Beautiful Days, second in the Bright Young Things series:

Author: Anna Godbersen
Release date: September 20, 2011
Pages: 416
Summary: 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.

I just love the drama, the gossip, the opulence, the wreckless lifestyles and memorable characters portrayed in these books! I'm sure that Beautiful Days will be yet another great read from Anna Godbersen-- definitely looking forward to it!

So... what are you waiting for this week??
