Hello all my literary soulmates! In case you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to spend your time for the next few months while we wait patiently on The Mortal Instruments film adaptation, the final installment of Veronica Roth’s Divergent series, and not to mention The Hunger Games sequel, I have some ideas…
…and that is, Anna Godbersen’s The Luxe series. Now, don’t freak out, you won’t find any vampires or factions here — well, at least not the kind you may be used to, but you will find yourself lost in an amazingly stunning world. A world that really did exist and probably still does in many ways. Think Gossip Girl meets Gone with the Wind— post war.
This four book series is an addictive, can’t-put-it-down, they-better-not-be-out-of-the-next-book, read. It’s full of romance, mystery, and incredible historical detail — so you might just learn something, besides Dauntless’ initiation ritual. Godbersen delivers lively characters with heart and spunk that keep you turning the pages, and although they might not be facing The Capitol’s infamous arena — they’re certainly still fighting for their lives and the way they want to live them. This is a series that you don’t want to miss out on.
