Maybe at this moment you're checking my rating and thinking, "What the fuck?!"
I'm going to tell you something: I enjoy reading shallow, trashy books. Somehow they pull me into a world of bitchy, spoiled, backstabbing characters; name-dropping and the need to choke them all for being so damn stupid. And I fucking love it. You know why? Because they keep me interested in their stupidity. The more books I read, the less I stop searching for trashy books. A girl like me can only handle enough in their chest.
Take for example the series Gossip Girl. The main characters are so spoiled that I want to smack them around. They back-stab the people they like, treat everyone else like crap because they aren't as spoiled as they are, and the main male protagonist always cheats on his girlfriend with her best friend. So why do I read that crap? Because they keep me intrigued. All these things they do make me want to know what stupidities are they going to do next. Nothing is as delicious like some juicy drama. Also revenge, but that's another story.
So, The Luxe. . .
I don't know exactly what made me interested in these books, but one thing is for sure: That dress is beautiful! Just look at it! It's so pink and fluffy!! That being said, I read the back cover:
Pretty girls in pretty dresses, partying until dawn.
Irresistible boys with mischievous smiles and dangerous intentions.
White lies, dark secrets, and scandalous hookups.
This is Manhattan, 1899.
*re-reads* Hot damn! I am so in!!
At that time, I haven't read enough historical fiction to know what was the good quality ones and the bad quality ones. I was only interested on what this book was going to contain.
The main protagonists, Elizabeth and Diana Holland, are the major socialites of Manhattan. Everyone envies them. But what the public doesn't know is that they're broke. The only solution for this problem is that Elizabeth should marry the handsome bachelor, Henry Schoonmaker (HA! What a stupid last name!). Problem is, Penelope Hayes--Elizabeth's on and off best friend--wants Henry and she and him were supposed to be a couple. Also, Elizabeth is in love with Will Keller, her coachman. Unfortunately, Lina Broud, one of the house's servants, is in love with him as well and she's determined to win him.
See what I mean? This is exactly the type of drama I love! Now, don't get me wrong, I didn't think this book was a literary sensation. My ratings aren't just about how good a book is, it is also about entertainment value. And you better believe that this book was a heck of an entertainment! Sure, this book isn't historically accurate, but that didn't stop me from enjoying them. I thought the writing was alright, and obviously so much better than the other authors who write trashy books.
I only recommend this series if you enjoy reading catty characters.
P.S. Did you really expect these books to be exquisite historical fiction? Did you notice who reviewed the books on the back? That's right. Cecily Von Ziegesar, the creator of the Gossip Girl series, did. Coincidence? I think not.
