Waiting on Wednesday (#41)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

A Mad, Wicked Folly

by 
Expected publication: January 23rd 2014 by Viking Juvenile

Welcome to the world of the fabulously wealthy in London, 1909, where dresses and houses are overwhelmingly opulent, social class means everything, and women are taught to be nothing more than wives and mothers. Into this world comes seventeen-year-old Victoria Darling, who wants only to be an artist—a nearly impossible dream for a girl.
            
After Vicky poses nude for her illicit art class, she is expelled from her French finishing school. Shamed and scandalized, her parents try to marry her off to the wealthy Edmund Carrick-Humphrey. But Vicky has other things on her mind: her clandestine application to the Royal College of Art; her participation in the suffragette movement; and her growing attraction to a working-class boy who may be her muse—or may be the love of her life. As the world of debutante balls, corsets, and high society obligations closes in around her, Vicky must figure out: just how much is she willing to sacrifice to pursue her dreams?

*** I love the cover of this book, the yellow really pops! Although I haven't read a lot of historical romance books lately, I'm really looking forward to reading this book. :) What is everyone waiting to read?

I love historical fiction, and it seems like there are a good amount of books lately set in England in the early 20th century. Maybe it's the Downton Abbey effect. :)

I can't wait to read this one, too. I tried (unsuccessfully) to get an ARC, so I'm settling for being first in my library's queue.

Great pick. I love the cover too, you don't see many with bright yellows on them. I have this coming up to read, and I can't wait. It sounds like it is going to be really good.
