Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen [Coming Soon]

Title: Bright Young Things
Author: Anna Godbersen
ISBN: 006196266X
Release Date: 10.12.10

The Usual Questions:

Is this the first in a series?
It seems to be.

What is the basic concept?
(from author's blog)

"It promises all the intrigue and romance of Anna's Luxe books, set against a backdrop bustling with flappers, starlets, and speakeasies."

Is the cover art favorable?
I'd say that it's a little pedestrian for my taste. Predictable.  But it seems to be the trend in covers, so I'm sure it will be mass-appealing and will sell well.

What are some of the author's other works?
The Luxe series

Interested?  Read the prologue to Bright Young Things.

What do you guys think about the cover?  The prologue?  Sound like something you'd read?

I love, love, love THE LUXE series. I have the whole series signed by Anna and an extra copy of the 4th book. Like I said, love.
I think the cover is a little bland, but it's not bad. I have a sample chapter that I picked up at the Book Expo and I think it sounds great. I'm a big fan of flappers and speakeasies. I'll definitely be getting this series.

I don't really like the cover. Hmmm, I haven't managed to finish the Luxe series so I don't know if it's something I'd like. Thanks for the info :)

I read the sample too and I thought it was brilliant. I really enjoy the characters, and she definitely hasn't lost her spark in writing. This is my most anticipated release for this year. Okay, maybe except for Mockingjay. :)
