Happy Hump Day!
As usual, it’s time for Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine). Each week this event gives bloggers the opportunity to talk about an upcoming new release that is on our radar.
When a book is touted as “Downton Abbey meets The Selection”, I’m all in. According to the blurb on Goodreads.com Landry Park by Bethany Hagen is the love child of Downton Abbey and The Selection.
In a fragmented future United States ruled by the lavish gentry, seventeen-year-old Madeline Landry dreams of going to the university. Unfortunately, gentry decorum and her domineering father won’t allow that. Madeline must marry, like a good Landry woman, and run the family estate. But her world is turned upside down when she discovers the devastating consequences her lifestyle is having on those less fortunate. As Madeline begins to question everything she has ever learned, she finds herself increasingly drawn to handsome, beguiling David Dana. Soon, rumors of war and rebellion start to spread, and Madeline finds herself and David at the center of it all. Ultimately, she must make a choice between duty – her family and the estate she loves dearly – and desire.
Ohhh I so hope this one turns out to be as fun of a read as it sounds! I get simultaneously nervous and excited when a book is compared to another favorite of mine. So fingers crossed that Landry Park, which is scheduled for release on February 4, doesn’t let me down!
