Anna Godbersen is the author of the Luxe series, which features the rich elite from 1899-1900. The most memorable aspect about those books are the stunning covers, featuring the full, beautiful dresses from the time. I loved. it when a new cover was released so I could stare at those dresses!
I was really delighted to hear that Anna's next book would be set in the 1920's, which is such a cool age in history. I loved learning about it in school because as a historical fiction fan, it always seemed to me that writers would focus on the 19th century, and then skip ahead to the the 30's or 40's, but leave out the first 30 years of the 20th century. So Bright Young Things definitely was good news!
My only thought was...how could the cover for Bright Young Things possibly stand up to the Luxe covers? Well, I think HarperTeen did a pretty good job...
This cover just screams 1929! I love the swank and glamour, and the font is just perfect! So beautiful! It is very distinct, yet very obvious in which time period the book is set. I love it. October cannot come soon enough!
