The Luxe - Anna Godbersen Eeeeehhhh ... It was okay, I guess. It wasn't really my kind of book. Sure, I like a good shallow read. But this one felt a little too shallow -- yes, too shallow even for me. The whole thing is about bratty, whiney nineteenth-century teenage girls plotting against each other. oooh how SCANDALOUS! Predictable, corny ... the dialogue was lame and the characters were all the same. But ... well I guess I've read worse. I guess it depends on your taste. This one just wasn't the book for me, I'm afraid.
