Booking Through Thursday



Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme hosted at Booking Through Thursday. It asks fun book related questions each week. It’s a fun way to get you thinking about your books and share you're thoughts with other book bloggers. Once you’ve completed your post return to Booking Through Thursday and leave a comment and link. This week's question is:


Would you lie? Have you? Why? What Book?


This was kind of a tough question. There isn't any books that I have read that I would lie about having read. There are a few books that I would classify as "guilty pleasures", but again, they really aren't that bad and again wouldn't lie about having read them. So, I decided I would go with The Luxe because it falls under guilt pleasure. I don't always agree with their lifestyle choices, but I'm sucked into their soap-opera lives. Speaking of which, I can't wait for November when book four, Splendor comes out!

by Anna Godberson

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 fiancé; 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 dénouement. A delicious new twist along the Gossip Girl vein, readers will clamor for this sharp, smart drama of friends, lovers, lies and betrayal. -GoodReads
