Can you tell I didn’t like Max? 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, but all the girls are dealing with situations which are still relevant today.
Rebecca-Books: Beautiful Days – Anna Godbersen (#2)
And double dangerous when the entire bootlegging economy was owned and operated by gangsters — such as Al Capone. I have annaa enthusiasm to get to the final book.
I was completely drawn into the setting from page one, daye I could be part of Letty, Cordelia, and Astrid’s world. Beautiful Days picks up about a month after Bright Young Things. Comments can, most of the time, make my day. There was something ruthless about the way that he brought them up and up; but it was almost unmistakably the way a person went about doing something they loved.
The drama in this book is still high. Beautiful Days was a good read, nothing over top but a solid story. And even for the dozens of men featured, they never feel flat. It was glamarous, eloquent, and had an amazing story line. The sheer varieties of characters help draw out the scene and the period until we’re lost in their world.
It had nothing to do with the writing, more to do with where the storyline went and dxys I thought It was going to go. I could almost picture being right there, flying with them. Just dzys moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
And it seemed that we were supposed to be ok with that. In the actual book, I think it was a day. Everyone is perfectly rays, with the exception of Billie, who’s a cardboard cutout of the lesbian stereotype. Cordelia revels in her luxury, and although she does have a few hiccups here and there, she’s self-assured and confident and a glittering picture of the Jazz Era. Letty, Cordelia, and Astrid all end up, at least for a while, living at Dogwood, Charlie and Cordelia’s father’s house.
The girl has absolutely no backbone. However, whenever I read Anna Godbersen’s books, I am literally taken to the era and it is like the reader is this invisible friend of Letty, Cordelia and Astrid’s walking godberxen side them experiencing what they are.
Nonetheless, I did enjoy reading of all the characters. Aug 18, Shelby Boyer beautirul it really liked it.
I had a certain expectation that wasn’t met. That said, even Letty gets some serious character development beautkful this book and while I don’t like her as a character, I like where Godbersen is taking her. I will do my absolute best to keep the spoilers out of this review.
I felt that the romance bit touched the females and the gang godgersen perhaps the males. Although, his scene with Cordelia up in the air was my favorite scene of the book. At times, it seems to be in a third person omniscient, but then it will zoom in on Cordelia – then bop into Astrid’s head with no warning.

Flappers, bootleggers, fringed dresses and jazz music all feature to help set the scene for this particular period in time and Godbersen’s wonderful prose and gorgeous descriptions combine to transport the reader back to Feb 17, Stacia the club rated it liked it Recommended to Stacia the club by: It is very visual and lyrical in parts that helps capture the society and attitude of the time, transporting you to that period of time. Is the club closing after opening weekend for good??
Feb 27, Amy Bradley rated it it was ok. I understand this piques curiosity, but I’m not sure this issue will ever be resolved. But mostly, the coincidental happenings occurred too often, I lied.
I listened to the audio version of this book from Amazon’s Audible.
