Can't-Wait Wednesday - The Chosen and the Beautiful


 Can't-Wait Wednesday is a feature hosted at Wishful Endings where people showcase an upcoming book they are looking forward to.


This week I'm anticipating . . .



 Title: The Chosen and the Beautiful

Author: Nghi Vo

Pages: 272


Release Date: 1st June 2021


Blurb from Goodreads:

Immigrant. Socialite. Magician.

Jordan Baker grows up in the most rarefied circles of 1920s American society—she has money, education, a killer golf handicap, and invitations to some of the most exclusive parties of the Jazz Age. She’s also queer, Asian, adopted, and treated as an exotic attraction by her peers, while the most important doors remain closed to her.

But the world is full of wonders: infernal pacts and dazzling illusions, lost ghosts and elemental mysteries. In all paper is fire, and Jordan can burn the cut paper heart out of a man. She just has to learn how.

Nghi Vo’s debut novel The Chosen and the Beautiful reinvents this classic of the American canon as a coming-of-age story full of magic, mystery, and glittering excess, and introduces a major new literary voice.

 Why I'm Anticipating This Book:

How amazing does this sound?!

Words can't describe how excited I am to read this!
