What's New? Speak Easy, Speak Love by McKelle George


Woah, this is such a #coverbuy! I really enjoy reading Shakespeare re-telling because, honestly, I haven't read most of his original stories. 
I love how this book sounds, I hope I end up reading it and loving it.
Check it out!

Expected publication: September 19th 2017 by Greenwillow Books 

Six teenagers’ lives intertwine during one thrilling summer full of romantic misunderstandings and dangerous deals in this sparkling retelling of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.
After she gets kicked out of boarding school, seventeen-year-old Beatrice goes to her uncle’s estate on Long Island. But Hey Nonny Nonny is more than just a rundown old mansion. Beatrice’s cousin, Hero, runs a struggling speakeasy out of the basement—one that might not survive the summer. Along with Prince, a poor young man determined to prove his worth; his brother John, a dark and dangerous agent of the local mob; Benedick, a handsome trust-fund kid trying to become a writer; and Maggie, a beautiful and talented singer; Beatrice and Hero throw all their efforts into planning a massive party to save the speakeasy. Despite all their worries, the summer is beautiful, love is in the air, and Beatrice and Benedick are caught up in a romantic battle of wits that their friends might be quietly orchestrating in the background.

Hilariously clever and utterly charming, McKelle George’s debut novel is full of intrigue and 1920s charm. For fans of Jenny Han, Stephanie Perkins, and Anna Godbersen.

  1. Oh wow, I LOVE that cover! It's beautiful! I've not read too many Shakespeare retellings (besides the obvious Romeo and Juliet). I hope you enjoy this book if/when you read it, Lis!

    Have a great week. =)
