Hi everyone! This is Julia of The Broke and the Bookish, formerly blogging on my own at The Competitive Bibliomaniac.
I read mostly historical romance, but can often be found reviewing paranormal romance, young adult books (mostly distopian/fantasy), fantasy/sci-fi, classics, and the occasional non-fiction book about languages.
Feel free to follow and reblog!
I read this book quite awhile ago and felt that it was not as good as the others, (but honestly I prefer the earlier 4 to the later four always). But when I went back and gave this a good reread, I felt more connected with Lucy and Gregory, and I really enjoyed it.
I think though it was because that this was the first time I have ever had a romance novel hit so close to home with how I felt about certain aspects of my life. So I have this bias along the lines of "I learned something about myself from this book" that makes me love it more.
Take this review as you will but I did enjoy it. Not my favorite of the 8 but certainly an interesting read.
A fun note from now. When my sister got to this book in the series, which is the last one of the Bridgertons, she hated the book the whole way through. I mean freaking hated it. "Why did you make me read this" sort of hate. But in the last like 10% it turned around and she ended up loving it the most.
