developed quite the obsession with the tv show, specifically eloise, so i wanted to read her book, as the show would take years to get to her season. unfortunately for me, to get to eloise’s story, i had to endure the monstrosity that is this book.

how bad does it have to be, for a netflix show to outdo a book? the answer is very bad. the characteristics, cast, even plotlines are all far better in the show. i tried thinking of one thing i liked better in the book and couldnt find anything at all.. that pretty much summarizes it.

also, why was every single paragraph about the mcs. sure, i adore daphne and the duke, but does every waking moment have to be about their drama? i love the bridgerton family interactions and wish there’d been more.
