#MarvellousMay @Andrew65 Just squeezed in 3 books to the challenge with this historical crime novel. Certainly the history was interesting as set in 1781 it centres around the slave trade, abolition, and the profits that mean lives of the poor victims are little more than cargo borrowing from a real sea borne atrocity. A former soldier investigates his friends death in the Deptford docks. A few stutters prose + plotwise but a page turner.

📖Bridgerton 1 & 2 ✅
📺Bridgerton Season 2✅
📖 Bridgerton #3 up next!

….but I still bought new books today 🤪🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

📚Who‘s watched Bridgerton and/or read the series? What do you think? I loved the second series & book—even though they were so different. #Bridgerton #theviscountwholovedme #anofferfromagentleman

BooksNBowls I was extremely disappointed they did not include the full library storm scene. It was my favorite! 😢 I also saw they are skipping Benedict‘s story and going to Pen and Colin‘s instead for season 3. 2d
sprainedbrain Second season was quite a bit different from the book, but I LOVED it (also love the book). Hope you love Benedict‘s book… I did! ❤️ 2d
MoonWitch94 @BooksNBowls I agree! It was my favorite scene from their book & something I missed. But, it would‘ve changed the whole season, so I guess I see why they excluded it. But it truly was a beautiful scene. 2d

MoonWitch94 @sprainedbrain I really liked the changes, too! I felt like it kept to the spirit of Kanthony but was a fun, new spin. I am 100 pages into Benedict‘s story & I‘m liking it. I‘ll keep you posted, Jenni. 2d
merelybookish Haha. So true! 1d
MoonWitch94 @merelybookish Isn‘t it? Sums up my book collection habits perfectly 🤪 1d
BooksNBowls @MoonWitch94 I love the Lady Whistledown plot line in the show and all the side characters stories. They really added some razzle dazzle to the books! 1d
zezeki This is painfully true! 😅 I've only read the first book, and probably will not continue with the other books, but I've watched both seasons, and loved them! Kate and Anthony are just perfection. 1d
MoonWitch94 @zezeki K & A are so wonderful ☺️ And I Iove how in depth they go explaining how Anthony‘s trauma over the loss of his father truly shaped who he is. Grief is something that we culturally do not discuss enough. 1d
MoonWitch94 @zezeki Also! The first book is my least favorite thus far. KAnothy‘s is very good. 1d
MoonWitch94 @BooksNBowls I love Whistledown! Julie Andrew‘s narration makes its perfect. I agree that the addition of side characters adds so much more! 1d
authorjessicaerin I've read the first four books and really enjoyed them! Taking a little break before devouring the rest. Audio helps me with these, too! And I think Eloise's was my favorite so far. ❤ 15h

This was such a delight! Historical romance between a Scottish Laird from the Highlands and an English Lady. Set in 1102 during the reign of King Henry and King Edgar. I loved the clashing of two different worlds and the way Alec and Jamie had to really work at finding common ground. Also loved all of the historical bits. I listened to the audiobook for well over half of the book and loved it-Rosalyn Landor narrates with beautiful accents.

Dragon Love Rosalyn Landor‘s narration. She‘s a favourite especially for historical romance novels 💚🐉 2d
intothehallofbooks @Dragon Yes! I LOVE her narration of The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley and I also love her narration of the Bridgerton books 😍 2d
Dragon Thanks 🙏 I will have to see if Libby has The Winter Sea - I like her Mary Balogh and Lisa Kleypas narrations too 1d

Here was my 2nd book in #MayMadness @Andrew65 + really enjoyable. A bk about how cicero emerges as the great political figure in the Roman Republic. It rds like a thriller + is v readable + extremely interesting, a lot of intrigue bringing the senate to life.
I'll rd later + raise a toast to a lovely lady jenny @ReadingEnvy after the horrible news this wk. I listened to her for yrs + was lucky to talk to her virtually on the show in 2020. V v sad

Cathythoughts I‘m so shocked and sad to hear this news of Jenny. I often listened to her podcasts and followed her here and on Instagram. Such a lovely person 💔 3d
TrishB I didn‘t know this news 💔 so sad @Cathythoughts 3d
andrew61 @Cathythoughts @TrishB Sorry that I've dropped that tonight Cathy and Trish, I only saw it on a thread on Wednesday. It seems a bit unreal as I didn't know jenny but she was such a lovely personality on her podcast so I felt as if I did. There is a thread on good reads. There is very little on line other than a short bit from her university. Sorry again, take care. 3d

Andrew65 This is really sad news 😢 3d
Andrew65 LovedImperium and I need to read the other books in the trilogy. 3d
Christine I can‘t stop thinking about Jenny‘s passing. I‘ll miss her podcast and her presence here and in the world so much. 2d
TrishB Thank you for mentioning it because I might have missed it and it‘s right and proper to think about her 💔 2d

Another #bookspin read. If you love super spicy gothic romance than you‘re going to want to read this series. This is book 2 in the Ivy Leavold series. Julian and Ivy are amazing characters. It does end in a cliffhanger but the 3rd book is already available. Read TW‘s and enjoy 🌶🌶🌶🌶 on the spicy scale so if that‘s not your cuppa avoid #romantsy @TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 4d
