Waiting on Wednesday: The American Heiress

(This adorable button is from Lindsay at the Violet Hour)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. Here bloggers share
with others what releases they are most eagerly anticipating. 
This week I have chosen:

Title: THE AMERICAN HEIRESS by Daisy Goodwin (ps- goodreads is hosting a giveaway for this title, so if you haven't already entered, you should!)

Release Date: June 21st, 2011

Reason Chosen: I had heard about this series quite a while ago and it sounded pretty good. THEN, my mom, sister and I got completely hooked on the Masterpiece Theatre production "Downton Abbey" and this book has become a MUST READ! Really excited for this one! (ps- for fans of the series, word on the street is that season 2 will be airing Jan. 2012. A ways to wait, but so happy that they are continuing!!!)

What are you waiting for?


  1. Oooo haven't heard anything about this one! *runs to Goodreads to enter contest* Thanks for sharing:)

  2. This sounds awesome! I really love reading about old-timey eras (like around the time of Pride and Prejudice). Great choice!!

    P.S. I hope you saw my shout out today in my ratings system discussion post!! :D

  3. Sounds good, love the cover!

  7. I love Downton Abbey too. I also just watched the new Upstairs, Downstairs and thought it was pretty good. I am looking forward to reading this one soon.

  8. Hey, Celesta! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting!

    This book looks just wonderful! It reminds me of Jane Austen's work. Sounds like you're a fan! Am I right?

    I'll add this book to my super HUMONGOUS TBR pile!! Lol.

  9. Ooooh! Thanks for sharing. I hadn't heard about this. Must enter the giveaway!

  10. Hehe, I loved all your comments on my blog today! :D As for the part of Blood Red Road that I didn't enjoy, it was Ike's death! I had really grown to love him and I felt it came out of nowhere! Sure, that's how death is, lol, but it was in the last few pages...WAY TO BREAK MY HEART. Basically, I'm just more heartbroken than anything. ;)

  11. Hum, I haven't heard anything about this book or the series (probably because I live in Germany) but I will be sure to check it out!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  14. Great WoW pick!! I love the cover for this one. Every time I see it on goodreads/amazon/wherever, I have to stop and admire it. It's just so elegant and gorgeous.
