    1. 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. 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. 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 certai [...]

    4. 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 w [...]

    5. 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 [...]

    6. 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 [...]

    7. 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 more 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, altho [...]

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

    9. 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 do [...]

    10. 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. 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 becau [...]

    12. Reviewed by Sarah Bean the Green Bean Teen Queen for TeensReadTooIt's 1900 in New York, and scandal and gossip are never far behind.Elizabeth Holland is back and everyone is awaiting her re-entrance into society. But things are not as they seem in No. 17 Gramercy Park. Elizabeth and her sister, Diana, are both grieving the loss of their loved ones. When the sisters are invited along on a trip to Florida by the newly married Schoonmakers, they decide this is the perfect escape.Penelope Schoonmake [...]

    13. 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 C [...]

    14. 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 wr [...]

    15. 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. Penelop [...]

    16. 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. 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. 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 [...]

    19. 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. [...]

    20. 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 more 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 t [...]

    21. 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. 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 more 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 [...]

    23. 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 o [...]

    24. It's more 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 [...]

I meant to have the whole series done in 2015, but better late than never!How could all of them mess up so many things so badly? Hopefully Book 4 will be the conclusion/happily ever after book, though I'm not sure if any of them truly deserve one, except Elizabeth Holland.

    26. 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 twist [...]
