Waiting on Wednesday (37)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read.

My pick is Landry Park by Bethany Hagen!

Goodreads summary:

Downton Abbey meets The Selection in this dystopian tale of love and betrayal

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.

My thoughts:

Oh, man.  I am SO excited for this book, it's ridiculous.  Downton Abbey meets The Selection?  That has to be the best pitch ever.  I'm always looking for Downton Abbey type books in YA, and I LOVE The Selection, so there's no way Landry Park will be anything but completely awesome.  Plus, it's gotten lots of great reviews from bloggers.  I'm definitely going to need to pick up a copy of this when it comes out.

Landry Park releases on February 4, 2014.

What's your WoW pick?

  3. I'm really unsure about this one, I love Downton Abbey and haven't read The Selection but I'm not a fan of dystopian books so I don't know but I'm adding it to my tbr list anyway haha.

    Thanks for coming by!
