Waiting on Wednesday (2)

December 24, 2008





I’m not the first to wait on this one, but this book deserves another Waiting on Wednesday holler.

Book: Envy by Anna Godbersen

Summary (from Harper Collins): Two months after Elizabeth Holland’s dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana’s side, however, those watching New York’s favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.

Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city’s most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope’s finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope’s social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society’s darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.

In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen’s bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan’s most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets. . . .

Why Do I Want It?: Because The Luxe series is super awesome and I love the story, the characters, the writing… everything that this series has offered. This new installment makes me do my happy dance.

When It Arrives: Jan 27, 2009. Mark your CALENDARS.


  1. um PRETTIEST COVER EVER! can’t wait to read this! it looks soooo good. and rumors ended with a complete cliff hanger. urgh.

  2. I haven’t read these books, but they have gorgeous covers! I kind of wish I could wear that dress to Prom or something. People would step all over it, but still… 🙂

  3. Liv- I know! It’s such a pretty dress. I hated how Rumors ended… I was like UGH I HAVE TO WAIT FOR ENVY. Only one more month!

    Megan- What?!?! Go to a bookstore like… NOW and buy The Luxe and Rumors by Anna Godbersen. You have no idea what you’re missing out on! And I love the dress also!

  4. who is the girl on the cover? im having a guess on lina, but i dont think she’s that pretty with her freckles.. hihihi.. and i dont think its diana because diana’s blonde like liz.. i know it’s elizabeth in the 1st book, and penelope on the 2nd, but who is this on the 3rd??

  5. Aui- I don’t know. It is probably Lina. I personally think Lina is pretty, just a different kind of pretty. I still think it’s a beautiful cover.

  6. aui- It’s Diana (Anna said it herself).

    The only thing is, I was kind of hoping that it would be a green dress (envy…green…yeah) but maybe it’s a wedding dress

    I can’t wait, the suspense is killing me

  7. Jazzxsky- Oh okay, thanks for clearing that up. And I personally like the white dress. More than I would a green dress. Only a week and some days. 🙂
