Waiting on Wednesday: Bright Young Things

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
Pub. Date: October 26, 2010

Goodreads says, "Bright Young Things is the first in an epic four-book series about three teenage girls finding their way in the glittering metropolis of New York City and the glamorous mansions of Long Island. It’s 1929 and Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town to chase big dreams and even bigger secrets. In New York, they meet Astrid Donal, a flapper who has everything she could ever want, except for the one thing Letty and Cordelia have to offer—true friendship. Set in the dizzying summer before the market crash, against the vast lawns of the East End and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls will find romance, intrigue, and adventure.  Just as The Luxe books brought the Gilded Age to readers of Gossip Girl, Bright Young Things will bring the Jazz Age to bestselling author Anna Godbersen’s devoted fans and to new readers alike."

*In the spirit of all things Anna Godbersen this week, I felt it necessary to showcase her newest series about the Jazz Age.  I have already pre-ordered this one and I am sure I will love it since I am a huge fan of The Luxe series.   Plus, who doesn't love flappers?  
I can't believe we have to wait until October for this one.  What book are you waiting on?
