Envy: A Luxe Novel

Title: Envy :A Luxe Novel
Author: Anna Godbersen
Date of Release: January '09
Number of Stars Given (1-5): 4.5

The luxe books just seem to get better and better. I thought the first book ( The Luxe) was awesome and I could not wait for the second one to come out. When the next book came out (Rumors:A Luxe Novel) I was very impressed and saddened that I had to wait for the next one to come out. This year when I realized that the third one was out I bought it right away and began to read it. This book out of all three of the Luxe Novels was my favorite. I liked how they changed the location of the setting so it wasn't New York anymore, which was one thing that made me kind of bored of the last book. I also liked the crazy ever-changing plot line of the story which made me stay up late into the night reading it. One unique thing about Anna Godbersen's books are that the main character changes consistently in every chapter and in every book the spotlight is on a different character. To anyone who picks up a luxe book ( Probably because of the elaborate dresses on the cover) would probably be discouraged about reading it because it is set in the early 1900's. This book was definitely not boring, the books are gossip filled and keep the reader wanting more and more. I would recommend this book to teens who like the Gossip Girl series and even to those who do not like GG because this book is just awesome anyway :) BOTTOM LINE : I loved this book! Best luxe book yet!
