If you are looking for a fun, easy, romantic read with a little ~spice~, this book will do it. The Bridgerton books are the perfect summer read and I am looking forward to reading the next books. I didn’t find the second epilogue necessary, however. It felt like it just dragged on what could have been a fine conclusion to the story. I see why the author did it, but I was fine without an epilogue that is many years after the setting of the book.

I loved the sibling relationships in this and the romance was fun but I didn’t love the male aggression and the 1800’s version of almost stealthing.

I thought everything I’d seen online that the books didn’t live up to the show and vice Verda but I was so wrong…

The reason I put “it’s complicated” for diversity is because obviously all the characters are straight and white so it does lack diversity  but then again this is England in 1813 and it wouldn’t be anything else. Shonda Rhimes skilfully created a colourblind and sexuality blind society however brilliant though her show is —- it is not the books. 

I think that if you are looking for a light summer romance this is AMAZING but if you’re looking for something to reflect what you saw on Netflix then you’ll be disappointed. 

I did finish it in 2 days if that helps anyone….
