Romancing Mr Bridgerton
Romancing Mr Bridgerton: Number 4 in series | Julia Quinn
112 posts | 217 read | 4 reading | 26 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?

Its ridiculous how much I'm enjoying this series. Quinn is great at characters and the reading is easy so I'm flying through the series. The only question now is whether I'll enjoy the TV series as much as the books. #76-2022

I loved this book a lot, but Benedict‘s book is my favorite (for now), so since I loved Benedict‘s so much Colin‘s book felt a little bit underwhelming.
Only because in my head I keep comparing the books, if that wasn‘t the case then I would be completely OBSESSED with this book.

"I love you," he said, his voice low and fervent. "I love you with everything I am, everything I've been, and everything I hope to be”
"I love you with my past, and I love you for my future." He bent forward and kissed her, once, softly, on the lips. "I love you for the children we'll have and for the years we'll have together. I love you for every one of my smiles, and even more, for every one of your smiles.”

“Home was in Bloomsbury. Home was with Penelope. Home was anywhere with Penelope.”

“She was beautiful. Utterly, completely, soul-stirringly beautiful. He didn‘t know how he hadn‘t noticed it all these years.”

quote
roronoazoro

“Unrequited love was never easy, but at least Penelope Featherington was used to it.”

Why Julia took the most loving character and turned him into a raging asshole in this book is a wonder to me. Colin.. sweet, easy-going Colin.. yet we see another side to him in this story. Then she kinda just blamed it on “love.” Idk, I hope the show adaption shows more passion and less red-flag abuser vibes. I am glad they are hopping right into this story line with the next season. I don‘t see how they could drag Pen and Col out anymore after⬇️

BooksNBowls Season two‘s ending! Also the actress who plays Penelope is nervous about doing the sex scenes so I think she‘s gonna try to opt out of them, which is a bummer because this book was a lil spicy there!! (The carriage scene 😍 & Colin‘s bedroom 🤤) Also the reveal for Lady Whistledown was interesting although I do enjoy the show‘s version better. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Anyways, I‘m a sucker for these books! Love it! 4mo

I couldn‘t wait, so I decided to go ahead and dive into Colin again. It‘s been at least 10 years since I‘ve read these, so I guess I‘ve blocked out how awful these guys get when they feel threatened or slighted. Even my sweet baby angel Colin turned into a douche canoe over lady whistledown. Besides that, love this book, Penelope is adorable. Colin, grow up.

For fans of the Bridgerton adaptation on Netflix, they're going a little out of order. Which means Benedict/Sophie fans are going to have to wait a little longer, because Penelope and Colin are about to have their moment! Yay!

It seems like each time I finish a Bridgerton novel it becomes my new favorite Bridgerton novel… not sure how long that could possibly hold up. 😅

So satisfying to finally get Penelope‘s book! I mean there‘s Colin, too, but Penelope! Just delightfully romantic and funny, and appropriately steamy when it needed to be. A perfect weekend binge read.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Scochrane26 This is probably my favorite one. 7mo

After a very busy workweek I‘m finally under a heap of covers in my huge pyjamas with the next Bridgerton novel. This is the only one not available through my library and I‘m being very strict on my book buying ban so I made myself wait for my birthday celebration ‘exception day‘ to get it. So now I‘m proud of myself for waiting AND in desperate need of relaxing in bed with some glorious escapism.

I love that with each addition to the Bridgerton series, Julia Quinn manages to keep things fresh. Particularly impressive considering how formulaic the genre can sometimes be. Don't get me wrong, I find comfort in a happily ever after, but it's also nice to have some unexpected turns along the way. While the unveiling of Lady Whistledown will not be a surprise for anyone who's seen the show, I so enjoyed seeing Penelope get her happy ending ❤️

I love this journey for Pen and Colin. And I love how even though it's partially the reverse of one of Simon and Daphne's tropes (sister's BFF vs BFF's sister), it doesn't feel like a rehash of anything that came before! #historicalromance #reread

Dipping into the pile of books my youngest daughter loaned me, I‘m taking a Bridgerton break. So grateful the books are better than the series. A fun, light-weight read. We finally get to know, for sure, who Lady Whistledown is And we get to watch Penelope finally get her man.

FeatherV eeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am screaming! I'm so excited you're liking them! 🙌 11mo
Mshookquilts @FeatherV 😂. And this may be my new favorite. Tough to decide between this & the previous one. 11mo
FeatherV @Mshookquilts wait till you get to the last two which in my opinion are the absolute best! Though Benedict was my favorite story until then. His is very cinderella esqe and I was here for it. 11mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I don‘t know why I waited so long to read this series lol probably because I hadn‘t heard of it since Netflix decided to make the show. I loved it but these are so much better. While watching the series, I wanted to know this story since episode one. I love Penelope. This didn‘t disappoint. The Bridgerton family is just amazing people on the inside and Colin is no different. I love the back and forth between him and Penelope. #LitsyLove

It also reveals the identity of Lady Whistledown. Frothy and romantic, not my usual type of book besides this series, but enjoyable. It definitely put a smile on my face. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👍🏼📖#️⃣1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣

Rereading Romancing Mr. Bridgerton again for romance book club. The Hitchhiker‘s reference is a great distraction from having wanted to punch Benedict in the face most of his book and knowing I‘m gonna wanna smash Colin‘s face a fair bit too. Like I love them...but also want to smash their faces a bit.

This was sooo good! So damn funny and also so very sweet. Everytime I read a romance novel I remember just how good they are. A fun read that you know will end well. Sometimes that is just what my brain needs. And written with such great wit. I really need to read more of the genre. I read this because Penelope was my favorite character on the show. This did not disappoint. Bonus: it was set in my old neighborhood Mayfair, London.

And we‘re back on track again with this 4th installment in the Bridgerton series. The Bridgerton siblings are back with their bantering and I love that.

I also enjoyed this story about falling in love with someone you have known “forever”. At the same time this is the story about someone who have loved someone “forever” and who needs to get their idealized version to fit with the reality.

This book ended up surprising me! I loved both characters from the tv show and the previous books but I didn‘t enjoy this book as much as I expected to. I don‘t know if it was just the story but I really wasn‘t sold on it. I‘m still loving the books but this one hasn‘t been my favourite so far!

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I really enjoyed Romancing Mr. Bridgerton. I thought it was fun and witty. I loved the friendship of Colin and Penelope and how it blossomed to more over time. I did enjoy the drama of Mrs. Whistledown. I did know who she was prior to reading the book because I watched the show. I can‘t wait to read more of these books.
