When He Was Wicked by Julia Quinn

I have to say, this one wasn’t one of my favorites. I really enjoyed Eloise’s story and was excited to see more of Francesca, but this kind of let me down.

Francesca Bridgerton has been noticeably absent from most of the books. There were very few mentions of her up until now and most of it was just to say that she was off in Scotland and widowed. We didn’t really know much about her, so I thought we would finally get to see what she was like.

Instead, it felt like more of Michael’s story. It was fine, but I still don’t feel like I know Francesca. She’s just the outsider Bridgerton that Michael is hopelessly in love with. I just felt like she could have been developed more as a person, rather than his cousin’s widow who was desperate for a baby. It also seemed out of character for a person as proper as her to become so dominant during their sexual experiences, especially when she wasn’t even sure that she was interested in Michael.

I was pretty disappointed that we also never got to see whether or not they had children. I hope the second epilogue clears that up. Definitely not my favorite, so I’m hoping Hyacinth’s story is better.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before (Series) by Jenny Han

After hearing a lot about the movie, I finally sat down one day and watched To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix. I absolutely loved it. It was so cute and relatable. It made me laugh and cry. I just really loved it.

Of course I had to read the books. They were so good, I could seriously read about Lara Jean and Peter all day long. I actually wish that was an option in life.

I read the three books in this series so quickly that it doesn’t make sense for me to make three separate posts about how great they were and how much I loved each one. Definitely light reading compared to some of the other books I’ve read, but they were all so so enjoyable to read.

I was actually pretty upset after reading them all that Jenny Han said she wouldn’t be writing any more books about Lara Jean. I want to know about Korea, college with Peter, the rest of their lives, etc.!

I’m so glad that Netflix announced they’d be making the second movie and the cast looks really great. Definitely looking forward to it’s release!
