On the Way to the Wedding by Julia Quinn
You guys probably know that I think Julia Quinn is totally overrated. If you didn’t know that, then I have a newsflash: I think that Julia Quinn is totally overrated. Or at least I DID. My change of heart came about after my friend Ali badgered me to read this book, which I did. Then I had several glasses of wine to drown out the horrid baby epilogue. Then I came here. You see, I reserve my best self for you guys.
Hold on, I’m going to get some ice cream.
I got some.
Okay, so the guy in this picture is Gregory Bridgerton. There are a whole lot of Bridgertons, and they go in alphabetical order from Anthony, the oldest, down to Hyacinth, the youngest, and this is the very last book. Since it is the last book, there are a lot of appearances from all the other siblings (although I can’t remember anything about Eustace or Freud or whoever E and F are). But the one we care about is Gregory. Got it?
The lady is Lady Lucinda Abernathy, and her best friend is the epically hot Hermione
Granger Watson. Hermione gets all the dudes. INCLUDING our own Mr. Bridgerton. What a twist, right?
Lucy decides to help Gregory flirt, since she is already “practically engaged” and you know what I am totally bored with plot summary, let’s move on.
So my problem with Julia Quinn before was that her romances (okay, let’s be real, I only read one) were totally standard, you know? They (it) weren’t really that funny. I was not impressed. HOWEVER: this book had all the wit and charm I had been expecting. I quite enjoyed it! And, at the end (and this is totally rare): I DID NOT KNOW HOW IT WAS GOING TO RESOLVE ITSELF. It was not immediately obvious! So I quite enjoyed that.
WARNING: This a book that is more sweet than sexy. There’s totally sex, but not a lot of it.
Side Note: DO ANY OF YOU READ TESSA DARE? I tried to read A Week to be Wicked but I got through literally three pages before I put the book down in disgust. I will try again but I promise nothing.
I also reread this but have not reviewed it, yet: Sloppy Firsts
Next up: MOTHERFUCKING BITTERBLUE IS OUT TOMORROW, Y’ALL!!!!
Apology: sorry, I wrote this under the influence and it’s totally half-assed.
