To Be Brief…

The Bridgertons series #1-8: Look, you don’t need to tell me these books won’t go down in history as some kind of literary masterpieces, I’m absolutely aware and actually lost count of how many times I cringed at one thing or another. The characters make some extremely dubious (and sometimes very problematic *cough* Daphne *cough*) life choices, and let’s be real: this series is full of entitled assholes. However, I may or may not have been working full time on my final thesis for vet school for the last 3+ months (I’ll be a real vet soon!), and these books may or may not have been exactly what my poor, mangled brain needed to heal. Under these circumstances, Bridgertons might as well be the best goddamn thing I’ve ever read. In my opinion, the second one is obviously The Best™ (sorry, I don’t make the rules), but I honestly had so much fun reading them all (except for the first one; why did you have to do that Julia Quinn??). The Bridgerton family dynamic is fantastic, and while I can’t quite make myself give these books a higher rating, I do recommend them if you’re into historical romance and don’t mind the occasional silliness. You don’t necessarily need to read every book in the series (or in the right order for that matter), but I do think you’ll form a better attachment to the characters if  you do (TW rape for the first one, though). 1.75-3.5/5 stars

“A man with charm is an entertaining thing, and a man with looks is, ofcourse, a sight to behold, but a man with honor – ah, he is the one, dear reader, to which young ladies should flock.”
