Write beajtiful, be it your comment on my post, if you agree or disagree or if you want to ask something – I check them most days. It’s an era that doesn’t pander to innocence or genteel moral codes.
The camaraderie between Astrid, Cordelia, and Letty leaps through the pages and their care-free attitudes as they spend nights on the town reminds me of a few college nights spent with some of my best friends.
Cordelia assumes a larger role in Charlie’s bootlegging schemes by taking the reins of the Grey family speakeasy, but that doesn’t sit well with her sorta-beau Max, who disapproves of booze in general.
I really couldn’t stand some stupid decisions that were made. Something they never expected? Is this series fun and entertaining? It never gets brought up once!
Jan 27, Chelsea K. I should like her – she’s quite and meek, a listener rather than someone to put her foot in her mouth most unlike Anita Blake, one of my least daya characters. Everyone is perfectly straight, with the exception of Billie, who’s a cardboard cutout of the lesbian stereotype. As of right beeautiful, I have no clue.
Max is the mysterious “flyboy” pilot and his character had so much potential. And he doesn’t seem to care for her at all. Astrid- where did her wild side go? Even though I didn’t enjoy Beautiful Days quite as much as the previous book, I was still happy to be back in Godbersen’s world. But I would have liked to see a little more character development and action. He was going through so much crap throughout this book, what with his bootlegging business, that he didn’t need his silly fiance to ruin things for him.
The girls are even more glamorous in this book. I know a lot of about the ‘s America because I was examined on that decade of Prohibition, speak-easies and entertainment for my History GCSE last year.
With family wars, speakeasy openings and relationship problems, there is never a dull moment and this novel will definitely impress, whether or not you liked the first!
It was glamarous, eloquent, and had an amazing story line. However, the story fell a little short of exciting.
One of the things I love about this series is that it may be set in the past, during a period of history which I find absolutely fascinating, gdbersen all the girls are dealing with situations which are still relevant today. Great review and I’m a new follower: Don’t disappoint me Anna! Instead of being a go getter she sits back and rides the coat tails of others. If you’re looking for a great summer read – this will be among the top of the list. Astrid Donal is a Well, this series certainly isn’t winning any literary genius awards, I’ll just preface my review with that.
I really enjoyed this book, though was somewhat xays to enjoy it at first.
I was so disappointed in this book. There bwautiful a couple of sentences oh, how I wish I could remember where they were! The bruised sensation spread outward from her heart to the pit of her stomach and up to her temples, and she began to take in the full scope of her loss. Anna Godbersen just has this magical way of writing that immerses you into another world.
Now annaa did I understand and enjoy godberden of the time period I know about, but I got to experience with the characters – therefore, I know why everyone goes to Gatsby’s parties in a sense! There are a small cast of new characters as well as recurring minor ones – all of which das delightful additions to read about godbeersen the three main girls. Meanwhile Cordelia, who is still reeling from the death of her father, finds herself the head of a speakeasy, complete with bootleggers and other gangsters -including the dangerous, yet attractive Charlie Grey.
The tension was amped up when Charlie’s bootlegging got dangerous. I love how the book entertains beautigul reader by following these girls and at the same time gives them a real insight and feel of the time it is set in complete with all the glitz, glamour and danger that surrounded the mob gangs and speakeasies of s America.
It moved faster, and the characters barring stupid Letty got more interesting. Dec 17, Madeleine Rex marked it as to-read Shelves: This book just seemed to contain everything that a book should have and yet it was not dull nor boring.
And even for the dozens of men featured, they never feel flat. They all got a version of their happily-ever-afters in this one but, somehow, it feels like anma just beginning–that everything has to come crumbling down in the wake of some disaster. I think she’s always been my favourite of the three, just because she has that unmasked sincerity and girlish charm to her that never goes away.
I would read BYT before starting this one, bwautiful if you have read BYT, although can’t remember some of the plot, don’t worry because this book gives a brief summary of what happened in places near the beginning. Godbersen vivid language, anan kind that compels me to wear an shiny thing of a dress and an elaborate updo to school, or wish for a time machine back to the Twenties.
As per usual for Godbersen novels, there’s lots of pretty boys with lots of pretty money and plenty of relationship issues.
Rebecca-Books: Beautiful Days – Anna Godbersen (#2)
It is rich in suspense, romance, glamour, tension and moments where I just wanted to jump in and join the parties. I don’t even want to talk about her that much. The girl has absolutely no backbone. Or the new love interest. Anyway, Letty really matures during the course of this book, and it shows. The people who are meant to be at the top, are up the top.
At times, I felt I was in a ‘s club, smoke masking the bustling crowd, jazz music filling the air, drinks clinking, flappers dancing the night away. All this aside, the book was simply boring. Beautiful Days was a good read, nothing over top but a solid story.
