Series Review: Is this series worth your time? Does it get better as the novels progress? Or does it get worse? Find out below:. The year is New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: Flappers and socialites seeking thrills and chasing dreams in the anything-goes era of the Roaring Twenties.
All Letty wants is to see her name in lights, but she quickly discovers Manhattan is filled with pretty girls who will do anything to be a star….
Overnight, she enters a world more thrilling and glamorous than she ever could have imagined — and more dangerous. Find out why below…. It seems like it was a decade unlike any other and I love exploring that further. After I finished that series, I put Bright Young Things on my TBR because it looked to be a very similar series: multiple leads, girls trying to navigate society and a dash of romance.
Like most things on my TBR, it took me years to get back to this series. But when I was looking for a new audiobook series to start, this one popped first and I decided to try it first. Obviously I like the decade and this story hits all the necessary requirements. And I get it, Cordelia and Letty are supposed to be the naive young girls from the country trying to make it in the big city on their own. But they literally lack any intelligence.
They all think the universe should revolve around them and I truthfully think Letty does believe it revolves around her and so they act like it does. Unfortunately, this is a very character driven story. You really are just following these girls through their mundane lives of bad decisions and selfish actions. Letty agrees, not even thinking about logistics ie money, living, etc because she thinks Cordelia is doing this all for her.
Letty earlier in the novel goes on this date with a guy Grayson? I think it started with a G and for some reason they end up witnessing this old many killing his racing greyhounds. Later on, Letty waiting for some big-shot music guy to show up for this date and G shows up at the same time wanting to for some unfathomable reason to me ask her out again.
Who in their right mind tries to make their mom jealous over a boy? I like drama but that is just too much. I will say that I did enjoy the audiobook production. Emily Bauer had the perfect voice and tone for narrating this book.
She made it really easy to listen to even when the characters were being total fools. But once I got into it a little more and the characters are expanded upon a bit, it gets better. Only Letty never grows up like Edith does. But the worst part is that there is no Lady Sybil to root for. Your email address will not be published.

This is about how I felt reading The Luxe. Not bad, but kind of meh too. I wasn't as captivated by the book as I was by the cover. You have piqued my interest with that prologue though.
