Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week:
“The Debutantes” by Cora Harrison
Summary: 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.
Why?: First, this cover is GORGEOUS. Not gonna lie, that’s what got my attention in the first place. But the blurb – I love anything that takes place in the ’20s. And this sounds really magical! This comes out in August so you better believe I’ll be reading it!
