Set between 1813 and 1827, the Bridgerton Series is a collection of eight novels, each featuring one of the eight children of the late Viscount Bridgerton. The Bridgertons are currently being developed as a Shondaland series for Netfl ...more
Ho letto il primo romanzo della saga, con il tempo li recupererò tutti. Amo la Quinn come scrittrice, sempre divertente , ma non avevo letto ancora quella che è la sua saga must.
Bene, visto che a breve c'è in programma la serie tratta dalla saga ho pensato di recuperarli, almeno i primi, poi col tempo tutti gli altri.
Il Duca ed io è davvero troppo carino, il romance perfetto!Ho adorato tutto di questo libro, dai personaggi alla storia. I dialoghi divertenti e frizzanti, i battibecch ...more
An Offer From a Gentleman
This story was definitely very compelling and also quite a bit different from the first two in the series. I liked that it dealt with a romance not set within the aristocracy (though the Bridgerton's are well respected/highborn members of society with nice things and such). I also liked that it dealt with some issues of class, but I still didn't necessarily like that Benedict wouldn't totally accept that Sophie wouldn't be his mistress until the end. He doe...more
i’m pretty adamant about separating books and movies - i really try not to compare them to each other ... i LOVED the show, and i LOVED the books, and i feel there are enough differences between the book and the show to make each interesting in its own way.
there are things i like better about each of them ... specifically, what i enjoyed more in the books was that there was a lot more snappy dialogue between the characters - i really got ...more
The Viscount Who Loved Me
Is everyone in this series going to be forced into marriage?? I was a little disappointed that this book followed the same path as the Duke and I in that regard. Otherwise it was a good story - the Pall Mall game was hilarious and more of what we come to the book for - the relationships between the Bridgerton's. They are an aristocratic family who love each other, enjoy being together and ...more
the viscount who loved me - masterful. begins with enemies to lovers, develops into ultimate wife guy fantasy. anthony continually moving the goal posts on what counts as "risk of falling in love" had me laughing out loud. "he wanted to see what kate was up to" LOST, GONE, SWEPT AWAY IN THE SEA, ultimate wife guy.
an offer from a gentleman - if you choose to buy in, it's a cute, sweet time. i had a hard time enjoying myself with the stark di ...more
#1. The Duke and I - 5 stars. Brilliant.
#2. The Viscount Who Loved Me - 4 stars. Not quite as brillian ...more
I read these books after I'd watched the Netflix series. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book and Daphne and Simon's story. I lived all if the characters and chuckled at dialogue making it enjoyable . I truly lived the story.if Anthony and Kate and found myself laughing out loud several times. I love Kate as a character for sure. The third book was my least favorite of the three with a Cinderella beginning and so much repetition. I do live that the female characters are al ...more
The books definitely have a hallmark formula to them: boy meets girl, they fall in love, there is a misunderstanding, they work it out and live happily ever after. It is still a fun read with many humorous moments.
The books are enjoyable nonetheless and you grow to live the Bridgertons, special mention for Violet!
Eventhough book 1 and 2 is quite similar in the plot.
And book 3 is like Cinderella ..
Still it was quite a entertaining read.
Just wished the 2nd epilogue doesn't open up too much on the other siblings stories that we haven't read. Example we know who Collin end up with. And If you seen the series.. the original story is kinda different.. so it's worth the read. ...more
The Viscount Who Loved Me: 3.75 stars
An Offer From a Gentleman: 4 stars
The characters get better - both the main and supporting ones - as the series progresses. I really enjoy the Bridgerton family scenes the best, and we get fairly few of those in the first book. I can't wait for book 4 and Colin/Penelope! ...more
I really enjoyed rereading these stories about the Bridgerton's. It's been a few years since I read these and decided I wanted to after watching The Duke and I on Netflix. It made me fall in love with these characters. I love Julia Quinn as an author, her books rock! I highly recommend this set! 👍👍👍👍❤❤❤❤ ...more
I have loved these books (1, 2 and 3). I love the family camaraderie, the principled and quick-witted characters and the twists of fate. The stories carry me along and I finish them smiling. They are also memorable, which I consider high praise, especially for a romance novel.
I had to get past the initial shock of the old tale. Then it became a beautiful love story. He had got terribly sick and needed help. She was the only person around to help. It was natural to develop true feelings and believe the story.
Il duca e io - 4 stelle. La serie Netflix è ovviamente il motivo per cui mi sono avvicinata alla saga, soprattutto per Shonda. Mi sono soffermata principalmente sulla poco conoscenza forzata dell'educazione sessuale del tempo.
Il visconte che mi amava - 4 stelle. Divertente, a tratti accattivante. Anthony è il classico fratello maggiore, forse un po' stereotipato ma la sua storia mi è piaciuta.
La proposta di un gentiluomo - 4 stelle. Sono in ven ...more
