Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week my pick is LANDRY PARK by Bethany Hagen.
"Madeline Landry is born into a world of influence and luxury, a world of estates and gardens fueled by nuclear power and maintained by a caste of people called the Rootless. When a Gentry girl is attacked, it is the Rootless who are blamed, even though Madeline knows better.
As she searches for the truth, she can't escape the rumors of revolution and retribution circulating through the ballrooms, and neither can she escape the city's new golden boy, Captain David Dana, who has secrets of his own. Soon, she finds herself forced to choose between her duty and her desires, her ancestral destiny and her conscience, and her choice will shake the very foundations of the world she was born to rule."
Why I Can't Wait: You guys, the cover. This is probably one of the most stunning covers I have ever seen. Not only is it gorgeous, it also speaks volumes for the tone of the book. The summary sounds amazing. I love stories about duty versus desire and battles with morality in general. Goodness, I just know this one's going to be a winner!
