Review: The Luxe

2010 Finishes: Books

The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
Genre: YA, historical fiction
Pages: 433
Rating: 8

This is one of those books that I don't really have a lot to say about, but that's not a bad thing. Set in 1899 Manhattan among socialite teens and their servants, it's basically Gossip Girl meets Edith Wharton meets Gosford Park. Now, it's not as good as any of those things*, but it was a fun, quick read. It gave me a completely enjoyable Saturday afternoon of reading, and I immediately requested the next in the series from the library. And sometimes, that's all I really ask for from a book.

* To clarify: This is a million times better than the Gossip Girl books, which are barely readable, but not as good as the Gossip Girl show, which at times approaches genius.
