Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I haven't posted a WOW post in a long time, but I saw this a couple weeks ago and I had to share!!

Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen

Release Date: 10/26/2010

About the Book: (From GoodReads) 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.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I loved The Luxe series-pure addictive gossipy fun! I am thrilled to see a new series, especially one set in the 20's-a time period I would love to visit. I can't wait to read this one!


  1. This looks like fun book. I love the 1920's, I will have to add this to my TBR pile!

  2. I also choose this one for my WOW this week. I can't wait to read this one.

  3. I was lukewarm towards the Luxe series but I like the idea of this one! Plus that cover is so cool. So glam.

  4. Yay! I really enjoyed The Luxe Series I hope this one is just as good :)

  5. *Squee!*
    I was hoping that Anna Godbersen would write another series after The Luxe! :D

  12. I did not even *KNOW* about this one, but now I am bursting with excitement! I was so very sad when The Luxe books ended, I'm glad I'll have a new historical fiction series to read. :D

  13. I was so excited to hear about this series. I loved the Luxe series too. I'm glad she is returning to New York and I don't know much about the Jazz Age so hopefully I will learn some things too. Great pick!

  14. I'm so excited to see a summary about this one! I've been waiting for that. Loved her other series, so I have really high hopes for this one. Great pick for your WoW!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
