Waiting on Wednesday: Spendor by Anna Godbersen
Jill over @ Breaking the Spine hosts a weekly meme that features one book that you can't wait to be released! This week, Jill's selection is The Privileges by Jonathan Dee click here to check it out and links to what others are "waiting" on.
This week my pick is the Young Adult novel, Splendor by Anna Godbersen. Splendor is book 4 in The Luxe series set during the first years of the 20th century...I've been hooked ever since I first read Book 1, The Luxe last year! I can't wait to see what happens in this conclusion (*crying* it's the last book!!) to an awesome series!
The cover for this book is gorgeous, don't you agree?!
Here's a preview from Harper Teen:
A spring turns into summer, Elizabeth relishes her new role as a young wife, while her sister, Diana, searches for adventure abroad. But when a surprising clue about their father's death comes to light, the Holland girls wonder at what cost a life of splendor comes.
Carolina Broad, society's newest darling, fans a flame from her past, oblivious to how it might burn her future. Penelope Schoonmaker is finally Manhattan royalty—but when a real prince visits the city, she covets a title that comes with a crown. Her husband, Henry, bravely went to war, only to discover that his father's rule extends well beyond New York's shores and that fighting for love may prove a losing battle.
In the dramatic conclusion to the bestselling Luxe series, New York's most dazzling socialites chase dreams, cling to promises, and tempt fate. As society watches what will become of the city's oldest families and newest fortunes, one question remains: Will its stars fade away or will they shine ever brighter?
I will certainly be looking for this book when it releases on October 27, 2009!!!!
