Waiting on Wednesday: The Magnolia League
Title: The Magnolia League
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.

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.
