The Luxe (Luxe, #1) by Anna Godbersen by Anna Godbersen

goodreads summary-Pretty girls in pretty dresses, partying until dawn.

Irresistible boys with mischievous smiles and dangerous intentions.

White lies, dark secrets, and scandalous hookups.

This is Manhattan, 1899.

Beautiful sisters Elizabeth and Diana Holland rule Manhattan's social scene. Or so it appears. When the girls discover their status among New York City's elite is far from secure, suddenly everyone—from the backstabbing socialite Penelope Hayes, to the debonair bachelor Henry Schoonmaker, to the spiteful maid Lina Broud—threatens Elizabeth's and Diana's golden future.

With the fate of the Hollands resting on her shoulders, Elizabeth must choose between family duty and true love. But when her carriage overturns near the East River, the girl whose glittering life lit up the city's gossip pages is swallowed by the rough current. As all of New York grieves, some begin to wonder whether life at the top proved too much for this ethereal beauty, or if, perhaps, someone wanted to see Manhattan's most celebrated daughter disappear...

In a world of luxury and deception, where appearance matters above everything and breaking the social code means running the risk of being ostracized forever, five teenagers lead dangerously scandalous lives. This thrilling trip to the age of innocence is anything but innocent.

message 6: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) You should! they're good books

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Sigh...Henry.



I adore him.

message 8: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) Henry is sexy

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I remember feeling giddy when he was in the book. I don't really remember feeling like that over anyone else in YA other than Jace.

It got to the point where I waited anxiously for Henry to come around.

message 10: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) He was a real charmer. I don't think I would have liked the books much without him and Diana.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I would have liked them, but not loved them. H&D were the best part of Luxe.

message 12: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) Definitely. Elizabeth was a complete bore in the first two.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I didn't like her at all in book 1.

message 14: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) Me either she was very annoying.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Meghann if you see this...

Bright Young Things (Bright Young Things, #1) by Anna Godbersen

Theories on Thom & Charlie? I don't think Thom is bad but we're just being made to think he might be? Charlie seems like jerk to the core though.

I almost had a bit of Luxe deja vu with the way the characters were sounding.
