Romancing Mister Bridgerton

Did I like it?

Yes.

Was it rapey?

Fundamentally, no.

This was a good book! Yay!

The author also avoided having her main couple commit violence on anyone/each other, AND she avoided the phrase “ancient rhythm”. So congratulations to her. The only truly annoying thing (which has, sadly most definitely been taken up by the TV show) is the use of “indeed”. It gets thrown onto the end of sentences willy-nilly and is annoying.

On the other hand, having, like, been a teenager in, like, the 90s… I should probably, like, admit that meaningless words do tend to breed when left unchecked. And not just in, like, fiction.

On to Eloise! Will the most interesting character be reduced to a heteronormative cliche?

Let’s find out. . .
