“Was it possible to fall in love with the same man over and over again, every single day?”
“He cared about her. He cared about her far too much. He craved her company when they were apart, and he dreamed about her at night, even as he held her in his arms.
He wasn‘t ready to call it love, but it terrified him all the same.
And whatever it was that burned between them, he didn‘t want it to end.”
“It was that spark. That damnable spark that never seemed to dim between them. That awful prickle of awareness that burned every time she entered a room, or took a breath, or pointed a toe. That sinking feeling that he could, if he let himself, love her.
Which was the one thing he feared most.
Perhaps the only thing he feared at all.”
This was somehow so much better than the first book!
I liked characters and secondary characters made it even better.
This had nice historical athmosphere that was missing in the first book. Still not strongest aspect of these books but works well enough.
It seems like characters in these books always have some silly trauma that doesn't feel believable/realistic.
This was a solid second book in the Bridgerton series. I enjoyed reading about Anthony and him falling in love with a girl he didn't think he would fall in love with. I mean it's very obvious that if the main character says "I will never let myself fall in love" he will 100% absolutely fall in love with the exact person he said he wouldn't. Dumby. Overall I really liked this and thought it was super sweet and spicy and scandalous.
I read this after watching the latest season of Bridgerton and, much as I liked the show, the book is better. I didn‘t feel that way about season one and the first book. I enjoy these characters and the dynamics between them. The book is fun and a diversion, which is what I think it‘s meant to be. The series is an alternate reality, and that‘s okay. I‘ve read reviews that intimate that you must take one side or the other. I disagree 👇
Sitting on the patio with my Kindle and Kleenex. I‘m going to get a lot of reading time this week, because I‘m isolating with Covid. Pretty sure I‘m over the worst of it, my biggest worry is trying to keep hubby from getting it. But I‘m going to try to take advantage of the time.
I loved everything about Season 1 of Bridgerton except for Daphne. Because of this I decided to skip Book 1.
It's amazing how this pretty standard Romance novel is transformed into the Blockbuster show. But that being said I actually liked the Bee story from the book better and how Love Triangle is pretty much non existent.
Will definitely read the next book that Seasons 3 is based on.
This one was better! I lowered my expectations and it was an entertaining read. Worldbuilding got better, and while I still don‘t quite buy the regency era setting, at least it didn‘t feel like Wild West (almost). While I see why some people were upset with changes made in the show, but I prefer the way it turned out on the screen. I don‘t reject the possibility of continuing reading the series, just a bit later maybe.
I was meh about 1st season, but the 2nd one was awesome! Are books any good?
Just finished watching Bridgerton season 2, and it took me a bit to get into it, but I ended up loving it. Kate and Anthony's pining is fantastic, and they're both absolutely gorgeous! I'm probably gonna watch it again in a couple of days. 😅😅🙈🙈📚📚 #bridgerton #bridgertonseason2 #booktoscreen

Anyway here‘s your Bridgerton name ; add Lord or lady - your 2nd name -last drink you had plus add ton - of -start of name of street you live on and add shire ; mine is Lady Anne Coffeeton of Loddingshire 🤣🤣 little things #whatsyourbridgertonname
Completely smitten with the new season of Bridgerton - am not a binger but watched it in a few days with my husband (who surprisingly and wonderfully loves the show). And am treating myself to a rewatch which I NEVER do 😅 Their chemistry is just great and I love Jonathan Bailey. I read the book long enough ago to not notice too many of the differences and just appreciate the overall justice this series is doing to the romance genre ❤️
Just finished binge watching season 2...I am not going to spoil it for those that have not watched it yet but I do have mix feelings about it. Don't get me wrong, I did like it. I was hooked from the very first episode. However, I do wish there was more romance to the story, especially when I enjoyed the book so much.
Did you watch it? What did you think?
It's #Bridgerton Day!!
One of the few times I will say show over book, I love to see the world Shondaland has created 😍😍
I have warned everyone that today is a do not disturb day, I have cleaned my house and ran all my errands, so excited for this one luxurious day in front of the TV
Spent yesterday binge watching Netflix Season 2 of Bridgerton. I‘m considering a re-read of book 2 as I‘m pretty sure there were changes. Here‘s a few screenshots of Anthony and Kate 💚🐉
I told myself I wouldn‘t binge watch & would go to sleep at a reasonable hour. I lied & my eyeballs hurt. There were a number of liberties taken from the original story but I generally liked them & thought they worked well in the overall story arc. I particularly like tv Eloise better than book Eloise. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I finally got around to reading the second Bridgerton book because the new season is coming on soon! This was also part of Once Upon A Book Club‘s Bridgerton box last year and I loved all the gifts and the beautiful design of the book! I really enjoyed the book and can‘t wait to read the third!
I was a bit sad to hear that there'll be no Duke in Season 2, but after watching the latest trailer, I am hooked! I'm definitely gonna binge the entire season, my best friend and I already made plans of watching it together and ignoring everything else. 😅😅🙈🙈 #bridgerton #netflix #booktoscreen 📚📚
I read the duke and I last year when Bridgerton was airing and I really liked it, but reading this one in advance of the new series I LOVED. i don‘t know if it‘s exactly a better book or if I‘ve just got more into romance than I was, but I was obsessed with this. Perfect balance of banter and yearning.
We are headed off on a little podcast retreat this weekend to do our own 24 in 48 hour challenge. I‘ll be attempting to read bridgerton 2-7 and my cohost will be diving into some wheel of time. Can‘t wait to spend the whole weekend reading!
