Book Review: Bright Young Things (Series) - Anna Godbersen

Bright Young Things - Anna Godbersen

I liked this book, and the rest of this series.

This is an historical era YA story. It brings you back to the jazz age, to the pleasure age, to the prohibition. Anna Godbersen does a great job of bringing you to this time without detailing the politics and the war; through the observations of naive, innocent young girls, you get to see the consequences of the pleasure era through them.

There is a lot of hopeful romance, a lot of squabbles, a lot of high society tricks.  I like high-society snubbery as it was meant to be; subtle and done by pretty little vixens that get their medicine in the end.

Following 3 very different young ladies, you are strung along their ambitions and feel their innocence dying, and watch each lady evolve. This evolution makes the end of the series, the last book, the hardest and most fun to read.

Pick it up! I highly recommend it!

2013: Re-Vamped

I hope you brought in 2013 with a good party dance!

I've re-vamped the blog a little. Sadly, there are no actual vamps.  Blogger doesn't have any vampire-esque backgrounds, boo.

Maybe I'll make one. But then that takes time away from reading about vampires. Mmmm, hard choice.
