Book Review: Luxe by Anna Godbersen - Reviewed by Lani (18 Aug 2011)
5 stars! This is the first book in one of my favourite series. Suitable for young adult/mid-teen female readers, it's comparable to the O.C. and Gossip Girl - only the year is 1899. This book is addictive, you won't want to put it down. There's something for everyone in all the characters, and you'll be anxiously waiting to read #2 ("Rumours") as soon as you finish "The Luxe". I even love the book covers - these will definately be the prettiest books on your shelf! Meaty enough to satisfy your need for a quality story, yet opulent and indulgent - you'll be transported back to a time and place that you won't want to leave!
