hodbersen I am currently in the middle of Rumors and boy oh boy are things getting exciting. It’s a roiling sea of love, despair, social climbing, and backstabbing.

View all 3 comments. This book is like Gossip Girl set in the late 19th century.

Elizabeth wasn’t all that likeable because she didn’t stand up for herself as much as you’d want, but she was definitely sympathetic. If you didn’t think the nineteenth century was full of drama then think again. The way the story starts out at Elizabeth Holland’s funeral, just sets you up to trying to solve the mystery the entire story.

The person she would be in her next life was finding her way one second at a time.

Anyway, I completely expected ulxe be utterly bored by this book, but instead I was vastly entertained and gripped by the unfolding mystery and tension, and even though the prologue tells you the ending, it doesn’t tell you anything, and you’re never sure what’s going to happen next or how it all worked out. Godbbersen why do I read that crap? She then marries Snowden Cairn in order to support her baby and avoid scandalous rumors. He has sex with Diana and appears to be in love with her.


The novel had a positive response from readers, staying on the New York Times Bestsellers list in December for four weeks. Vindictive, self-absorbed, manipulative, obsessive, and so many more despicable characteristics. Mar 30, Misty rated it did not like it Recommended to Misty by: I was ready to slit my wrists after a few chapters.

Described as handsome, with blond hair and serious, gray eyes. In perfectly lovely period costumes. 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.

I recommend it to no one. Rich, powerful for their age and spoiled. A main character who you want to be happy for.

She comes from a super rich and respected family, a family who since her fathers death, has fallen to pieces that may well me able to be put together by Elizabeth accepting a worthy suitor with a hefty dowdry. When I read books in third person, I hardly ever give them five stars, no matter how well written because as I’ve said before, I want to make a connection to the characters. This doesn’t pretend to be more than it is, a light, fun historical romp, and just what I needed at the time.

I just can’t get enough. Sure, this book isn’t historically accurate, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying them. He was arrogant, godbfrsen, and frankly, a man slut. annx

There’s a few problems with that however: Do go godbersfn for lude in the park For that is where the true gentlemen are. That dress is beautiful! Also, there’s Will, the hot stable boy who is after a lady who is way far above his station that he would need to time travel to the 21st century, win the lottery and then go back in time a mega rich guy, to ever, and I mean ever be accepted by said girls family and society. There isn’t a lot of substance to the book.

I don’t know exactly what made me interested in these books, but one thing is for sure: However she didn’t win, and was constantly judged and looked down on by the other equally selfish and doubly fake characters.

See what I mean? I spent a day and a half with Anna Godbersen and The Luxe. The Luxe Cover of The Luxe. It’s absolutely girly and gossipy and filled with mock scandal. A beautiful, awful train wreck. Nana 3 November The characters’ paths once again intertwine when Henry plans a fishing trip to Florida with his good friend, Teddy Cutting.

Very fun read if you don’t try to take it TOO seriously! While most of the characters are multi-dimensional and well drawn, there seemed to be some confusion with the free spirited female gobersen, Diana.
