Romancing Mr Bridgerton: Number 4 in series | Julia Quinn
172 posts | 246 read | 4 reading | 29 to read
On the sixth of April, in the year 1812 - precisely two days before her sixteenth birthday - Penelope Featherington fell in love. But Colin Bridgerton certainly didn't fall in love with her in 1812 (and not in 1813, 1814, 1815, or - oh blast, not in all the years 1816-1822, either, and certainly not in 1823, when he was out of the country the whole time, anyway..' Penelope Featherington has secretly adored her best friend's brother forwell, it feels like forever. After half a lifetime of watching Colin Bridgerton from afar, she thinks she knows everything about him, until she stumbles across his deepest secretand fears she doesn't know him at all.Colin Bridgerton is tired of being thought of as nothing but an empty-headed charmer, tired of everyone's preoccupation with the notorious gossip columnist Lady Whistledown, who can't seem to publish an edition without mentioning him in the first paragraph. But when Colin returns to London from a trip abroard he discovers nothing in his life is quite the same - especially Penelope Featherington! The girl haunting his dreams. But when he discovers that Penelope has secrets of her own, this elusive bachelor must decideis she his biggest threat - or his promise of a happy ending?

The angst and the revealed identity of Lady Whistledown - chef's kiss!
Also how in the end the attempt at blackmailing was dealt - it couldn't have been done better.

Also can I just say it: The books are so much better than the Netflix series!

julesG The books are better. But I also like the series. 😁 2w
monibookishnerd I was devastated how little the first two seasons kept to the books. Besides the names the plot didn't stick to the books at all. Especially the second season was so full of drama, it was unnecessarily prolonged and it didn't show how much fun these two characters had in the books. 2w

I decided to make a Bridgerton AI picture. The first picture is the AI version of my picture and the second picture is the picture I used of myself. I like how I look in the AI picture. It looks like I lost my glasses, lost my purple highlights, lost weight and had my hair and makeup fixed. It‘s interesting because I‘ve never been skinny. I wonder if I would look like the AI picture if I lost weight.

I absolutely love these books. I‘ve never really been a big fan of romance but these books changed my mind. I guess it‘s because of watching the series on Netflix. I can‘t say a whole lot about the book because I don‘t want to spoil it for others. I just want to say I‘m so proud of Colin Bridgerton. #SeriesLove2024 @TheSpineView @Andrew65

The inspiration for season three of BRIDGERTON, a series created by Shondaland for Netflix, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn: the story of Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington in the fourth of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family.

Someone remind me to stop reading romance novels! They‘re clearly not my genre. Every so often they put me in the best mood ever, so I seem to keep trying, but most of the time have the opposite effect these days! I got all excited after watching the new Brigerton season and decided to reread this. This was better than some I‘ve tried recently, there were laugh out loud funny scenes, and Colin was surprisingly open minded for a man of his era,⬇️

IndoorDame but there was also a huge focus on his temper and how it was worth putting up with because she was so in love with him that I guess I didn‘t really notice when I first read this 15 years ago, but now 🤯🤬 sticking to the Shondaland version. 1mo
lil1inblue I struggle with romance novels as well. Every once in a while I hit on one that I really like, but it's hard to find! 1mo

Cuilin Yeah, I tried to read the Bridgerton books and was not successful. I totally prefer the Shondaland version. 1mo
IndoorDame @Cuilin oh well, I do love the Shondaland version, and I‘m totally looking forward to the end of this season next month 😁 1mo
Cuilin @IndoorDame I can‘t believe they only gave us four episodes. They must make haste and drop the others. 1mo
IndoorDame @Cuilin yeah, not a fan of this schedule! I‘d much prefer one a week to half the season then a month wait for the other half 1mo
zezeki I also struggle with romance, I don't enjoy most of them, but every once in a while I come across something that I really enjoy, so I'm not ready to give up on the genre yet. But I did give up on Bridgerton series after finishing Duke and I when season 1 came out. 😅 1mo
IndoorDame @zezeki I‘ll have to keep an eye out for reviews of the ones you particularly like! 1mo

Finally finished it and I think I liked the book more than the first part of Bridgerton Season 3.
I enjoyed how the revelation of Lady Whistledown was handled, how Colin falls for Penelope, and I enjoyed Penelope's and Eloise's friendship. 4 ⭐️

Who else binge watched the 1st part of season 3 today? I read this book some time ago because I immediately loved Penelope. They have made some changes from the book, don't they always, but it is still delicious. (Bonus points to whoever can identify the movie my teapot is from. Also based on a book though not a romance.)

I am ready for May 16th! This book is going to be clearly different than the series with one of the only similarities being Penelope is Lady Whistledown. But I still can‘t wait for the series! As for the book, it was exactly what I expected. It‘s written like the other two I read. It‘s enjoyable and steamy. I also liked how Penelope came out of her shell in the book and her friendship with Lady Danbury, hopefully that happens in the series too.

bookishbitch I really liked this one too. 2mo
SarahBookInterrupted @bookishbitch Do you watch the series too? I had read The Duke and I because it was my library app suggestion and then a year later Bridgerton came out. So then I decided to read the others along with the series. 2mo
bookishbitch @SarahBookInterrupted yes and I love it! I also love reminding people the show is based on romance books to point out their bias against them doesn't holdnwater 2mo

The newest Apple+ adaption of Edith Wharton's Buccaneers, while anticipated by me, also has me pondering the uptick in recent classics adapted in similar tones to Bridgerton, like Netflix's 2022 Persuasion, to varying degrees of success. While the sample size is small, it has me thinking about why we're gravitating to the classics to satisfy the demand of Bridgerton instead of adapting more romance novels. https://youtu.be/JAnoZDloO18
