Can’t Wait Wednesday……Under A Dancing Star

Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings where you showcase an upcoming book that you are looking forward to.

This is my first time doing Can’t Wait Wednesday, after seeing many book bloggers doing it. I am really looking forward to sharing and showcasing books that I am highly excited to read.

The first book I am going to showcase is…. Under A Dancing Star by Laura Wood

 Under A Dancing Star by Laura Wood
Published by: Scholastic
Release Date: 4th July 2019

In grey, 1930s England, Bea has grown up kicking against the conventions of the time, all the while knowing that she will one day have to marry someone her parents choose – someone rich enough to keep the family estate alive. But she longs for so much more – for adventure, excitement, travel, and maybe even romance.

When she gets the chance to spend the summer in Italy with her bohemian uncle and his fiancée, a whole world is opened up to Bea – a world that includes Ben, a cocky young artist who just happens to be infuriatingly handsome too. Sparks fly between the quick-witted pair until one night, under the stars, a challenge is set: can Bea and Ben put aside their teasing and have the perfect summer romance?

With their new friends gleefully setting the rules for their fling, Bea and Ben can agree on one thing at least: they absolutely, positively will not, cannot fall in love…

A long, hot summer of kisses and mischief unfolds – but storm clouds are gathering across Europe, and home is calling. Every summer has to end – but for Bea, this might be just the beginning.

I read Laura’s book A Sky Painted Gold last summer and was completely mesmerised by it.. very much so that it was one of my favourite reads of 2018. So, you can imagine how excited I was when I heard about Under A Dancing Star. I am just really looking forward to reading Laura’s beautiful writing and being taken back to 1930’s.

Are you going to read this book? Let me know!
