Waiting on Wednesday: Debutantes

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

Debutantes by Cora Harrison
Pub. Date: August 2, 2012

Goodreads says, "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've been really enjoyed historical reads lately and this one sounds really good. I also LOVED Cora Harrison's I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend, so I am excited to read this one.  What do you guys think? 


  1. Love the sound of this one! The cover is so pretty too! :)

  2. I love, love, love that cover! I'm adding this book to my list too because I do like the sound of it.

    Here's my WoW

  3. I'm a sucker for vintage London, so I have a feeling I would be all over this! It reminds me a bit of Anna Godbersen's Luxe series, which I read years ago -- though these are set in England, which definitely piques my interest.

  4. Oh, how pretty! I read a lot of historical, but not much historical YA. I really should read more, and this sounds like a lovely possibility. I love the 1920's! Great pick!

    (My WOW)

  5. This cover is INCREDIBLY beautiful! I don't read many historical novels but this is one I might actually pick up. I love uncovering secrets :)

  6. Beautiful cover and sounds really good, adding it to my TBR pile :D

  7. Awesome pick that I am going to have to check out!

    Thanks for sharing,
    My WoW -

  8. I will have to add this to my TBR list. I love historical fiction and this time period sounds really interesting. I wonder if it will be similar to Anna Godbersen's books...

  9. Debutantes sounds really good and I definitely must check out I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend because of course I love all things Jane Austen! Thanks for BOTH recommendations!

  10. THis looks amazing---I love book set in the 20s. Plus the cover, WOW...the colors just jump out at you. So pretty.

  11. Thanks for visiting, everyone! I hope this series is like Godbersen's (I loved Luxe!) but we shall see!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
