Is this book like an old-fashioned Gossip Girl? Rich, powerful for their age and spoiled. Complete with their own version of the poor. Very fun read if you don’t try to take it TOO seriously!

I enjoy reading shallow, trashy books. Somehow they pull me into a world of bitchy, spoiled, backstabbing characters; name-dropping and the need to choke them all for being so damn stupid.
And I fucking love it. Because they keep me interested in their stupidity. The more books I read, the less I stop searching for trashy books. A girl like me can only handle enough in the Maybe at this moment you’re checking my rating and thinking, “What the fuck?! A girl like me can only handle enough in their chest. Take for example the series Gossip Girl.
The Luxe (Luxe, #1) by Anna Godbersen
The main characters are so spoiled that I want to smack them around. They back-stab the people they like, treat everyone else like crap because they aren’t as spoiled as they are, and the main male protagonist always cheats on his girlfriend with her best friend.
So why do I read that crap? Because they keep me intrigued. All these things they do make me want to know what stupidities are they going to do next. Nothing is as delicious like some juicy drama. Also revenge, but that’s another story. I don’t know exactly what made me interested in these books, but one thing is for sure: That dress is beautiful! Just look at it! It’s so pink and fluffy!! That being said, I read the back cover: I am so in!!
At that time, I haven’t read enough historical fiction to know what was the good quality ones and the bad quality ones. I was only interested on what this book was going to contain. The main protagonists, Elizabeth and Diana Holland, are the major socialites of Manhattan. But what the public doesn’t know is that they’re broke.
The only solution for this problem is that Elizabeth should marry the handsome bachelor, Henry Schoonmaker HA! What a stupid last name! Problem is, Penelope Hayes–Elizabeth’s on and hodbersen best friend–wants Henry and she and him were supposed to be a couple.
Also, Elizabeth is in love with Will Keller, her coachman.
Unfortunately, Lina Broud, one of the house’s servants, is in love with him as well and she’s determined to win him. See what I mean? This is exactly the type of drama I love!
Esplendor (Latidos 4)
Now, don’t get me wrong, I didn’t think this book was a literary sensation. My ratings aren’t just about how good a book is, it is also about entertainment value. And you better believe that this book was a heck of an entertainment!
Sure, this book isn’t historically accurate, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying them. I thought the writing was alright, and obviously so much better than the bodbersen authors who write trashy books. I only recommend this series if you enjoy reading catty characters. Did you really expect these books to be exquisite historical fiction? Did you notice who reviewed the books on the back? Cecily Von Ziegesar, the creator of the Gossip Girl series, did.

Mar 30, Misty rated it did not like it Recommended godberesn Misty by: The Luxe is about turn of the century New York socialites falling in love and misbehaving. New York’s darling latiidos, Elizabeth Holland is poised to marry one of the most eligible and debaucherous bachelors in the city, but her perfect life is not what it seems. Sadly, it has all of the shallowness and poor writing of the former, with little of the intelligence and power of the latter.

View all 32 comments. Feb 27, Nancy rated it it was ok Recommends it for: The Holland sisters, Elizabeth and Diana, are at the top of the social ladder. But The Holland sisters, Elizabeth and Diana, are at the top of the social ladder. Falling in love with Henry, of course. The concept about rich girls leading scandalous lives in Manhattan, though set in for The Luxe, and how marriage was just beneficial for status upholding, is the same.
Everything else, not really. I think this is even worse than Gossip Girl. Take Elizabeth, for instance.
She does absolutely nothing except to look blank and regretful. Take notice that this book has pages. And the most unflattering character is Diana. All in all, not something I would ever pick up again. I like books with some kind of message, with development, with strong-willed protagonists that makes everything better, but I found nothing of the requirements here. But if you actually like the endless, unrealistic love triangles why would anyone like Goodbersen, anyway?
