Waiting on Wednesday: The Magnolia League

March 16, 2011

Title: The Magnolia League

Author: Katie Crouch 
Publisher: Poppy (Hachette Book Group)
Pages: 368
Pub Date: May 3, 2011
After the death of her free-spirited mother, sixteen-year-old Alex Lee must leave her home in northern California to live with her wealthy grandmother in Savannah, Georgia. By birth, Alex is a rightful, if unwilling, member of the Magnolia League, Savannah’s long-standing debutante society. She quickly discovers that the Magnolias have made a pact with a legendary hoodoo family, the Buzzards. The Magnolias enjoy youth, beauty and power. But at what price?

As in her popular adult novels, Crouch’s poignant and humorous voice shines in this seductively atmospheric story about girls growing up in a magical Southern city.–Goodreads

Okay, I feel like there’s something y’all need to know about me. I am Southern, I love that I am Southern, and I will read just about anything set in the South. So, obviously this book is on that list. 

My trip to Savannah, March 2010

However. This book is extra super-special because not only is it set in the South, but it’s set in SAVANNAH, which is breathtaking, and definitely one of my favorite places. But a book needs more than just a fantastic setting, (At least most of the time. I’m sure there are exceptions.) and The Magnolia League seems to promise more than just Spanish moss and weeping willows–it’s about both a debutante society and a hoodoo family! I mean, c’mon. Rich, entitled, Southern bitches + creepy magic = Yes, please!

I am counting down the days for this one! You best believe I have it marked on my Google calendar.

    This book looks FABULOUS. I'm also living in the south… IF you consider Kentucky to be "The South," but hey, whatever 🙂 Hoodoo family & debs? COUNT ME IN. Also… I love "Southern Bitches." hahaha

    I am so excited to read this one too. I LOVE southern books as well. Savannah is one of my favorite places. I actually visited two years ago in March as well. It's beautiful! I'd move there!
