BOOK REVIEW Wednesday: Never a Bride by Amelia Grey

Hello Everyone,

Oh those Regency romances, how I want to stay away from you. But once in a while I give in and read one of them, just like Never a Bride by Amelia Grey.

I actually enjoyed this very much, and usually I stay away from Regency romances because as much as I like reading romance, I really have a hard time enjoying them because all I can think of is the real treatment of women. LOL that's women studies fanatic for you.

Regardless, I liked this book because for once the main character was standing up to the conventions of the society. And I wanted to slap the male lead more than once, but what can I say... double standards and women. Either way, the book grabbed my attention and held it because I wanted to know who was the culprit! I do have to tell you, I got my suspicions about halfway, maybe even earlier, in the book and I was right.

Good read if you want some relaxing reading, without having to think too much. (just don't be me, and enjoy the book for what it is instead of analyzing the position of women in the society ;P)

4 out of 5

  1. I love historical chick lit, as I don't really read true romances, but I totally understand your fixation on the treatment of women. It's hard to get through sometimes. x
