Friday Finds

Friday Finds is a weekly event hosted by Should be Reading
What great books did you discover, or hear about this week.
Well, I discovered a whole series, The luxe Series by Anna Godbersen.
There are three books in the series right now, The Luxe, Rumors, and Envy.

The Luxe (book 1)- Anna Godbersen

From Goodreads-A big, sumptuous tale of catty girls, dark secrets and windswept romance unfurls in this compulsively readable novel of late-19th-century New York City socialites. Godbersen weaves a tenuous web of deceit, backstabbing and pretense that follows four teens: Elizabeth Holland, a prim and proper lady of old-money society, is betrothed to one man, though furtively loves another; Henry Schoonmaker, a debauched playboy who must marry Elizabeth or be disinherited; Diana Holland, Elizabeth’s younger sister who is in love with her fiancĂ©; and Penelope Hayes, a member of the nouveau riche who will stop at nothing to win Henry’s affections. As Elizabeth and Henry’s wedding approaches, the spectacle unfolds in a wondrously grandiose scene, making for a fun, though not entirely unexpected dĂ©nouement.

I'm so glad I found out about this series, it sounds really good. Can't wait till I can get a copy of book 1, The Luxe.
