    One thought on “Envy

    1. Jen on said:

      This book was so deliciously addicting, I couldn t put it down The Luxe series seems to get better with each book, as this one is currently my favorite in the series I really liked the time spent with all the main characters, even the ones you love to hate And I am of course on the edge of my seat in anticipation of the next book in this series, Splendor release date unknown.

    2. Donna on said:

      Ohhhhhhh Don t you just hate Penelope And Henry has messed up things so badlyIt s hard to keep rooting for him I really wanted Lina to get her comeuppance alas Diana is still my favorite character though she got jerked around a lot in this book I thought this was the last book in the series to my dismay and my joywe re not done yet This book was really all about the complications of all the scheming of all the characters But wow I can t wait to see what happens next.

    3. Heather on said:

      Oh the angst My heart bleeds Henry made me cry Diana made me grit my teeth and Elizabeth made me sigh in exasperation What s next I ask you While this series is ridiculous and completely over the top, it is a fabby guilty pleasure read I swear the characters, apart from Penelope, are a few grapes short of a bushel, but vati are they entertaining.Penelope has successfully trapped Henry into marring her, but because she is an evil, scheming wench, he is refusing to bed her, lol She is certain that [...]

    4. Rachel on said:

      Nothing happens in this book It is one long set up for the next book which I have heard is the last I was only mildly entertained by the change of scenery, but I was mostly annoyed at how none of the characters matured Please Penelope is still conniving, Diana is still naive, Elizabeth is still pathetic, Carolina is still clueless, and Henry is still drunk Am I really supposed to believe that no one suspects the guy Elizabeth ends up marrying of having some kind of ulterior motive And who thinks [...]

    5. Angie on said:

      Third Luxe book and my favorite cover to date Could just be that it s Diana on the cover and she s my favorite characterbut I really like the dress Actually, this is my favorite book of the three as well And I really wasn t sure it would be What with Henry and Penelope beingudder But this one seemed the most real People grew up and, in a couple of notable cases, grew spines Whether or not it will all be too little too late remains to be seen The fourth and final Luxe book, Splendor, is due out i [...]

    6. Amber on said:

      Ok, so while I still love this series, I didn t love this one as much as the ones before In the beginning of the book, I found drunk Henry to be amusing, but it just kept going and he was being so harsh to Penelope Yes, I know it s her own fault, but I still felt bad for her And, I just felt like the scenes with Henry and Diana back and forth were too much of the same, it bored me after awhile.As for Elizabeth, I found her annoying through most of this book She was supposed to be helping Di but [...]

    7. Chloe on said:

      Just like The Luxe and Rumors, Envy was completely addicting I got it one morning and finished it before noon the next day This one was mature than the others in a way, since the characters have grown and experienced so much I think my favorite girl in the series has become Diana I can relate to her the most and I think that she is the most real and that she faces the hardest challenges Elizabeth has become somewhat subdued and predictable I immediately suspected her pregnancy, although her mar [...]

      OMG so excited to read this im a big fan 3 for big beautiful dresses, reading about drama, old days, etc.

    9. Anne Osterlund on said:

      Anna Godbersen s Luxe series is an exercise in contradictions Exquisite in its descriptions of the phenomenal wealth of turn of the century New York society Outrageous in its catastrophic tumbling into the depraved values of said society And drive you up the wall in its depictions of flawed selfish characters For whom for no discernible reason you still wish things would go well.Even though I hate Penelope who I m definitely supposed to hate And I despise Carolina who I still don t want to see f [...]

    10. Sarah MacLean on said:

      OMG Anna Godbersen has done it again The ending of Envy is so perfectly juicyI just don t know how I will handle the wait for Splendor 5 stars

    11. Meera K. on said:

      OH GOD I swear I ve had a love hate relationship with these books THEY RE SO BAD THAT THEY RE GOOD Every minute I read Envy, all I was thinking about was some flaw with a stupid character in the book or the INCREDIBLY boring plot line But I just HAD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN And after I finished Envy at like 2 AM I got up and picked up Splendor Doesn t sound like I hate them but believe me I HAVE SO MANY COMPLAINTSRSTLY Stupid CharactersElizabeth Okay, I understand the trauma because her h [...]

    13. Kate on said:

      This third installment of the Luxe series was just as good as the first two books The relationships between the characters are tangled and soap opera dramatic, but nothing so confusing that I couldn t follow the story line from the first book As with the first two books, the prologue hints at the ending, but by the time I got to the ending, what I had imagined to be happening was something entirely different in a good way The one nit picky thing that bugged me was how the author describes Caroli [...]

    14. Traci on said:

      Oh brother I can t believe that I just wasted my precious time reading this whole book The writing is laughable In the last book, people were always feeling the anger rage burning the back of their throats This time, Diana looked so beautiful, Henry was feeling it in his knees And what s the deal with clavicles They mentioned several times throughout this book either someone is looking at their clavicles in the mirror, or a dress is showing them off Weird.Sometimes I felt like she was writing wi [...]

      Well, I read it and it only took a day Here are the things that annoy me spoilers Lina spends one hard day on the street and then comes into fabulous undeserved wealth Please Hate her I hope she ends up with Tristan and NOT Leland who seems like a nice guy and does not deserve to end up with the conniving maid Elizabeth HELLO What do we know about this potentially shady guy she just married Nothing I m glad she got a backbone and decided to have Will s child I love Teddy Penelope still hate her [...]

    16. Jessica on said:

      Same level of interesting enough to keep me reading but not amazing enough to be considered a favorite or one I would read again as the others I did enjoy the twists and turns of the end, and can t wait to see the conclusion in the last book.

    17. Dannalie Diaz on said:

      Such irritating characters, such spoiled rich kids, yet such an addicting series Still waiting for that plot hole in book 1 to be addressed, though

    18. YA Reads Book Reviews on said:

      Envy is the third instalment in The Luxe series It picks up right where Rumors left off, with enough scandal to drive even the calmest of readers crazy.Mr Henry Schoonmaker one of New York s most eligible bachelors, and the love of Diana Holland s life has a new wife, and he s not one bit happy about it, either How could he be, when the love of his life is not the woman to whom he is now legally bound Henry can t even bring himself to look at Penelope with affection so how is he going to fulfil [...]

    19. Daphne on said:

      After reading Rumors, I took a break from this series and I think it was the right thing to do The books aren t hard to follow and they are all very similar, so I think I would have enjoyed Envy less if I had read it right after Rumors Still, I didn t enjoy Envy as much as I enjoyed the first book in this series I think it might have peaked there, if I m honest, but the other books are still mindlessly entertaining They are quick, light reads with lots of drama to keep you turning the page Even [...]

    20. Jenben8426 on said:

      This series is just so Soap Opera ish to me You get a couple together and then some evil character who looks absolutely beautiful comes and tears them apart No one can say what is obvious to say which drives me bonkers Again the book had potential but because of all the stupid drama it was hard to find the good I think the story could have been much better and entertaining if it wasn t so cliche I again would say that this book needs to be read if you are 18 or older hence the adult title even [...]

    21. Arya *Bibliomaniac!* Fraser Stark on said:

      YeahShouldn t have even attempted.Petty, petty, petty, PETTY.Like, this story did not have my attention or interest at ALL and I swallowed through it just so I can reach my 2016 reading goalThis book makes me glad that I was never popular, or society s envy driven, boyfriend or dress driven Cuz if I had a life like thath I would be the first person to commit suicide because I had everything JustUGH No, no no no and no.

    22. Alison on said:

      OK let me just say.ere is a point in the book towards the end where you have a Scarlet moment it cracked me up you will know what I m talking about when you get to it.I guess I should get online to see if there is a fourth book coming out there better be I need closure from the ending than what I got but wasn t as bad as the second book in terms of leaving you hanging.I loved this series mostly because of all the romance drama and really can you beleive that it doesn t have any of my vampire go [...]

    23. Trisha on said:

      I feel the need to explain my rating lolSo, the writing is still great and the story is still good from the stand point of a story s the content that s killing me I ve spent two books getting to know the Holland sisters and really being their cheerleader I m rooting them on, hoping for good things And I m watching these two HORRIBLE HORRIBLE people Lina and Penelope win everything EVERYTHING I know, I know Maybe this is closer to real life, but seriously I need a win in the corner of the main ch [...]

    24. B.A. Wilson on said:

      It s secret, lies, gossip, scandal, and drama, as expected I both like and hate that I zoned out on some chapters of this book and still easily picked right back up with the story, without rewinding my audiobook The plot moves forward, but it s never so complicated or fast that I can t jump into the story at almost any point and quickly figure out what is going on with the characters It s almost like a TV show I might not want to miss an episode, but if I do, I can still watch the next one and [...]

    26. Jeann (Happy Indulgence) on said:

      Continuing the Lux series, Envy was a fun, frivolous read for me These New York debutantes certainly don t act like olden day ladies but that s what makes it fun about it Coming off reading a few apocalyptic dystopian titles, the contrast in emotion was really stark in this series They aren t anything deep and meaningful but are good for a light read It was difficult to see where the author was going with the series early on, but by the time you finish it, some major cliffhangers and twists and [...]

      I loved the first two so much Though I loved the ending, I felt the middle dragged a bit.
