Teaser Tuesday #20


A weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and the author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

Envy (Luxe #3) by Anna Godbersen


"The Schoonmakers are the envy of every young couple in the city," Diana answered mechanically, as though repeating some lesson learned by rote.  Barnard took two champagne glasses from a passing tray and handed one to Diana.  She closed her eyes and took a long sip that did nothing to settle her insurgent nerves.  In a moment, Henry Schoonmaker would be coming through the door."  (page 13)

*I shared more than two sentences, but I couldn't resist.  This series is definitely captivating and alluring.  Now I know why so many people rave about it. I'm hooked! I already pre-ordered Godbersen's next series, Bright Young Things, which takes place in the 1920's.

  3. This series has been very popular with the teens at my library. So popular, in fact, that I haven't been able to get my hands on the second or third book yet :)
