5 stars Historical Regency Romance Words seem wholly inadequate, my friends Why are the best books always the hardest to review Alas, if only I could have clever Lady Whistledown write this Flirtatious, affable, charming, and witty Colin has been my favorite Bridgerton sibling from the beginning, and I was most looking forward to his story, especially knowing that the strikingly handsome, popular bachelor was being paired with his sister s sweet best friend, plump, unpopular, wallflower, spinste [...]
I am certainly not going to marry Penelope Featherington Ever since we heard Colin Bridgerton utter, ummm, shout the above statement, we should have known that he s going to eat his words sooner or later.And eat them he did.Penelope Featherington She freshly comes out to society, out to meet the ton, with an excess of a few stones in her weight, and either orange yellow red gowns which doesn t do her complexion any good We can t blame her Her mother is a tyrant But Penelope knows she doesn t loo [...]
St Bride s Church Fleet Street, London, England, c.1830 I read this when it first came out over ten years ago and remember loving Colin Though I m a bit of a re reader, I haven t done so Consequently, I jumped at the chance to join in a buddy read, the forth in this enduring series.However, on re read I was really impressed with Penelope Don t get me wrong I still had heart palpitations over Colin and his deep green eyes Nevertheless, I appreciated Penelope s subtle straight forward intelligence [...]
There is a perfect word to describe how I feel about Julia Quinn It s meh I don t love her, I don t hate her, I will read her, I will quickly forget her.I m not sure why that is because she is very popular and other people seem to find her books, and this particular one especially, amazing But to me they are just too cute Too sweet I don t want cute and sweet I m sure you ve gathered that much from my reviews I can tolerate cute and sweet only in really homoeopathic doses.So what is Romancing Mr [...]

The friends to lovers trope is one of my favourites in the genre, and one of my favourite examples of it is Julia Quinn s Romancing Mister Bridgerton, the fourth book in her iconic series about the eight Bridgerton siblings.Colin is the third son, and has featured in the previous books as a good humoured, devil may care sort of chap easy going with a killer smile, good sense of humour, able to laugh at himself and always ready with a quip or witty rejoinder He s all of those things, but by the a [...]

Posted onUnder the CoversPenelope Featherington has been overlooked her entire life She s been told that she s not pretty enough, too plump, too nervous and too quiet And yet, Penelope probably has the most personality out of all her heroines in this series Penelope is hands down my favourite heroine I love seeing her growth as a character in the previous ones leading up to her own book, Romancing Mr Bridgerton with her long time crush, Colin.I wondered how Colin would redeem himself after his f [...]
My Review What a fabulously fun read I adored Colin and Penelope and especially Lady Danbury Revisiting the rest of the Bridgerton family was truly a joy Colin and Penelope make the perfect match and seeing close childhood friends grow into loving, adult soul mates was one of the greatest highlights in my reading adventures this year I was smiling from the beginning to the end laughing out loud and sighing often.
Oh, what a difference the second half of a book can make.I want to be clear on this when I was still only halfway through the book, I considered it a keeper Penelope was wonderful truly shy around anyone she didn t know well, with a few horribly painful embarrassing moments in her life that Quinn actually took the time to show I cringed in sympathy when Penelope came upon Colin just as he was telling his brothers that he wouldn t marry her and Penelope did what she could to preserve her dignity [...]
Another favorite MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE IN THE SERIES Oh, this book made me so happy Seriously, JULIA QUINN CAN DO NO WRONG.Anyway, Romancing Mister Bridgerton is Colin s book, and I almost couldn t believe who s his lady in this let your jaws drop fellow readers, for she is the plainest of Janes, wallflower of wallflowers, ugly duckling, the one and only Miss Penelope Featherington MY GOD And I love her so Even in the previous books as a minor character my heart would ache for that poor girl alwa [...]
Colin Nuestra rese a en A la cama con un libro
I don t know what s with me and Julia Quinn, but her books really don t work for me I see that a lot of people love this series and her other books, I see that this book got a lot of love from readers, but I I was bored most of the time Spoilers ahead.Colin and Penelope were friends one moment and the other he wants to marry her Just like that I never saw how his feelings changed, we never witness his attraction, just all of a sudden they re kissing and he s asking her mother for her hand And th [...]
Penelope and Colin Both are my favorite characters and it was best romance I have ever read Oh I am I hardly read romance and like it but this series has made me fall all over again in love with romance
Every time I finish a book I liked it I find it really difficult to describe with words the reasons 4,5 stars from me This book gave me the hope and the faith that true love can be all around and it comes when you don t even expect it.The story is about Penelope a young lady who spend almost half of her life being secretly in love with Colin, hers best friend s brother While her secret love for Colin is growing he spents most of his time travelling abroad, not to mention that all these years he [...]
Rather disappointing read, especially since I enjoyed An Offer from a Gentleman so much Got through it by sheer perseverance alone, not because I couldn t put the book down The dialogues and action in the first part are pretty shallow and boring unless I m missing something that I m supposed to detect between the lines and the plotline about unmasking Lady Whistledown was really of very little interest to me There are several characters Lady Danbury, Mrs Featherington, Eloise who are quite annoy [...]
Well, I ll probably have food thrown at me for the 3 stars I would have gone 3.5 but not 4 I m shocked at how much I didn t get into this story I tried I really did It s Julia Quinn It s the Bridgertons I persevered I m bummed because I love this series so far and it may take someone giving me a ginormous shove to go to book 5 Colin was a poo Perhaps my expectations of him were too high He was cranky, self centered, and had some jealousy issues that totally turned me off And poor Penelope People [...]
I started reading this to try to de stress I ve never actually read an out and out romance before, but I heard Quinn wrote fluffy and fun regencies, and her style, at least at the beginning, was lively and engaging However, as the novel progressed, and things began to annoy me First, Quinn does something with POV that really bothers me, and which I am trying to delicately explain here without giving away the book s central mystery, slight as it is Basically, Quinn has a revelation in this book [...]
Okay Full disclosure before we even start this review 1 Penelope Featherington is the queen of my heart.2 Colin Bridgerton is bar none my absolute favorite male character in this entire series.3 In the very first book, on like page 72 with absolutely no foreknowledge whatsoever, I decided that Colin and Penelope should get married.So, you can imagine how I felt when it was time for me to read this book And let me just say, it was everything I could have hoped for and .A lot of factors contribute [...]
BR with Andrea and Lacey Thanks ladies I am glad I read it At least I am not dissing the book from a position of ignorance It just is not my kind of romance I had never liked the idea of this book, although I have read a few in this series and I seem to remember thinking they were ok I could not enjoy this one.The writing was fine It was both the MCs they just plain annoyed me.Colin was self satisfied but insecure He whined about having no purpose in his life, while he traveled the world having [...]
Re Read December 2016 4.5 Stars.I d been looking forward to reading Colin s story, and it didn t disappoint What s , Penelope might be one of my favourite heroines too, because of her subtle wit and strength, as opposed to some heroines who either lack these qualities or shove them down your throat.I also loved Lady Danbury.It lost half a star because I would have liked at least one scene filled with flirtatious banter between the two main characters before they got engaged It was all too sudd [...]
Una delicia Encantada con la historia de Colin y Penelope y encantada con la serie que me encantan las series de familias y esta es un gusto para mis sentidos.
Romancing Mister Bridgerton I actually skipped this book and went on to Eloise s story When I was about half way into To Sir Phillip, with Love I thought I kind of liked Eloise s story and was reminded what a great writer Julia Quinn can be I decided to come back and read Penelope and Colin s story For God s sake, it is the Bridgertons I really like how Julia Quinn writes The witty and charming subtlety, I always get into a happy place where I just enjoy the brilliance There is nothing like it w [...]

See this review at shamelessromancereviewsspDear Ms Quinn, I bow down to you and your Bridgerton series You have created such an intricate family tree that I have no hope of ever forgeting about After reading book four, I find I am quite addicted to your writting I really couldnt help but love every single page of this novel The story of Colin and Penelope feels like it has been a long time coming Penelope is not the young debutant that most tend to be She is considered a spinster at the ripe ol [...]
