Waiting on Wednesday: Debutantes by Cora Harrison

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine

Hello again! I hope you are all having a great week so far! Because this Wednesday, I am here to report on a book that I can't wait to get my hands on! 

The book i'm waiting on this week is called Debutantes by Cora Harrison. It is about these four sisters in the 1920's who all have these huge aspirations to be writers, directors, musicians, and debutantes. But their house holds a secret and one of the girls is about to unlock it. Here's the Goodreads 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.

It sounds amazing! i'm really excited for this to be released on August 2nd of this year and I will defiantly encourage you to look into this book! If any of you have ARC's or have already read it, comment below on your thoughts!
