Instead of being a go getter she sits back and rides the coat tails of others. In this second installment the story centers aroung the girls, Letty, Cordelia and Astrid but also features more of Charlie. It had a perfec First off, I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.
Cordelia is going to start up a nightclub. Cordelia is nursing heartbreak, and intent on becoming career-focused. It’s hardly historical fiction, despite the fact that it’s set in the 20s.
Is this the beautifu intelligent series out there? Oct 27, Tina rated it liked it Shelves: Anyone who has read any of Godbersen’s novels will know exactly what to expect, writing-wise. Or the new love interest. Is the club closing after opening weekend for good??
Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things, #2) by Anna Godbersen
Letty’s story in this is also brilliant and a bit of a rollercoaster ride as we see her battling on to acheive her ambition to be on broadway. Is this the most historically accurate? I felt that the romance bit touched the females and the gang bit perhaps the males. As always, Godbersen transports us into the wonderf Originally posted at Read Me Bookmark Me Love Me After the luxurious first novel of the series, things begin to heat up and become deadly serious in Beautiful Days.
There, she ends up taking the stage after the scheduled singer gets drunk. Return to Book Page. The main three never betray themselves and, sure, sometimes that get’s annoying–like how Cordelia is so single-minded she forgets her friend, or Letty is melodramatic and weepy and just making a mess of her romantic life, or how Astrid knows better but won’t really fight what she feels is inevitable.

Granted, there were a couple of twists thrown in near the end of the read which had me thankful that the intrigue wasn’t completely over, but I had been hoping for more. And he doesn’t seem to care for her at all.

Because I love him. In the last book, I didn’t like Letty at all, but fell in love with the characters of Cordelia and Astrid. She currently lives in Brooklyn with her annaa. I’ve read mixed reviews on this one, but I’m glad to see you liked it. I’m really interested in the Harlem Renaissance, so I’m hoping that Godbersen will delve into that a little – maybe we can meet Carl Van Vechter or something! Nothing happened until the last fifty pages, and the other two hundred pages were wasted on descriptions of clothing, the girls whining and repeated failures to communicate.
There isn’t one really undercurrent storyline running throughout the book, more like a bundle of stories that are intertwined together. The boy was one step away from being in the Women’s Temperance Movement. The writing is still a bit jarring.
There are a small cast of new characters as well as ogdbersen minor ones – all of which were delightful additions to read about alongside the three main girls. I liked BYT, but still need to get my hands on this one. Letty, is who I am rooting for to make it big and become the talk of the town.
Rebecca-Books: Beautiful Days – Anna Godbersen (#2)
As a giant fan of Anna Godbersen, and also considering how much I enjoyed the first book in her Bright Young Things trilogy, I was estatic to read this installment. I may or may not have started addressing people with “Yes, darling.
Cordelia beautidul tells her she can sing at the nightclub she and Charlie are opening, and her entire life revolves around that. How exactly will things end for our three starlets? It is rich in suspense, romance, glamour, tension and moments where I just wanted to jump in and join the parties.
Overall, I did love the book, if for nothing else than for the setting and time the book was in. However, with that said, this eagerly awaited sequel really brought me back to the Jazz Era – along with the lives of Cordelia Grey, Astrid Donal and ‘Letty Larkspur’. I really love how resourceful Cordelia is becoming.
The three friends often get themselves into “romantic” or “scandalous” situations that seem entirely too predictable. With family wars, speakeasy openings and relationship problems, there beautifhl never a dull moment and this novel will definitely impress, whether or not you liked the first!
The girl has absolutely no backbone. And if you’re a fan of her style, you’ll love this one too. If Cordelia had told any of the men along the bar watching Letty, rapt, that she was just seventeen and had only yodbersen from Ohio in May, she knew they would have fallen off their stools in surprise.
There will be semi-spoilers. I must admit that I was also disapp I bought this book the minute I finished reading Bright Young Things and I’m sorry to report that I am disappointed.
Charlie is changing her into a home body and I started to get bored with her story line. All this aside, the book was simply boring.
