Waiting on Wednesday: Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen

Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (Published by HarperTeen, October 26, 2010)

Bright Young Things is the first in an epic four-book series about three teenage girls finding their way in the glittering metropolis of New York City and the glamorous mansions of Long Island. It’s 1929 and Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town to chase big dreams and even bigger secrets. In New York, they meet Astrid Donal, a flapper who has everything she could ever want, except for the one thing Letty and Cordelia have to offer—true friendship. Set in the dizzying summer before the market crash, against the vast lawns of the East End and on the blindingly lit stages of Broadway, the three girls will find romance, intrigue, and adventure.

I enjoyed Anna Godbersen's Luxe series and hopefully her new series will be enjoyable as well. The historical setting of the 1920s sounds very interesting and I haven't read a book set in that time period recently. Sadly there weren't ARCs at BEA as originally announced, they just had a sample book with a few chapters in it.

I would love to know what Anna Godberson did to get on so well with the cover gods! I bought The Luxe based purely on that gorgeous cover, and loved the subsequent ones as well. This one is gorgeous too, and the setting of the late 1920s should be good too.

Wasn't Cordelia Grey the same name as PD James's heroine in Unsuitable Job for a Woman? I met Anna at the signing for Splendour -- very gracious lady!
