Waiting on Wednesday (100)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. 

This week, I'm waiting on:

The Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era by Jessica Fellowes
Release date: November 13, 2012


The Great War has ended, but Downton Abbey is far from peaceful...
"Americans can't get enough of 'Downton Abbey,'" said The Boston Globe. As Season 3 of the award-winning TV series opens, it is 1920 and Downton Abbey is waking up to a world changed forever by World War I. New characters arrive and new intrigues thrive as the old social order is challenged by new expectations.

In this new era, different family members abound (including Cora's American mother, played by Shirley MacLaine) and changed dynamics need to be resolved: Which branch of the family tree will Lord Grantham’s first grandchild belong to? What will become of the servants, both old and new?
The Chronicles of Downton Abbey, carefully pieced together at the heart and hearth of the ancestral home of the Crawleys, takes us deeper into the story of every important member of the Downton estate.This lavish, entirely new book focuses on each character individually, examining their motivations, their actions, and the inspirations behind them. An evocative combination of story, history, and behind-the-scenes drama, it will bring fans even closer to the secret, beating heart of the house.

I am a big fan of the show and I really enjoyed The World of Downton Abbey.  I don't know how much new info will be in this book but I think I'll like it anyway. It will certainly give me something to do while I wait for Season 3!


  1. I think I've found a new read for my mom! She loved The World of Downton Abbey and should love this one too. Of course, I will steal it and give it a read myself :)

  2. Nice choice! I keep hearing how great the TV show is, so I'm sure this will be great. :)

  3. I LOVE Downton Abbey! I didn't even know that there was going to be another book. Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention!

  4. I started this show right as season 2 was released on DVD, so I basically blew through it all in a weekend. Now I have to wait until season 3 argh. I'll have to grab this one to hold me over.

  5. I always hear such raves for this show! I should really check it out sometime!
