"She wrinkled her nose. ‘As is every two-year-old boy, by his nanny.’"

Three Weeks with Lady X – Eloisa James

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long! I got some news, I got engaged a couple of months ago and when I’m not busy at school I got busy planning a wedding. Yay!

But I’ve been reading in my spare time I got a bunch of books from stores that sadly closed down….

“The orange wine will want our care soon. But in the meantime, for elegance and ease and luxury, the Hattons and Milles’ dine here to-day, and I shall eat ice and drink French wine, and be above vulgar economy.” — Jane Austen, in a letter to her sister Cassandra.

I didn’t realize you needed a response. When Hamlet is giving a monologue, he just goes on and on by himself.

You don’t learn kindness from memorizing even a whole book of the Bible. And that’s the important thing, to my mind.

have you ever sat on a beach at night drinking massive long island iced teas with your best friend as she reads a regency romance out loud because I highly recommend it

Interrupted my husband, who is listening to the French news, to read this aloud.. #thank you.

quotesfromromancenovels:

"And Piers was right: she hadn’t ever really forgiven her mother for wanting to be with strange men more than she wanted to be with her daughter. Enough so that she set out one rainy night to meet a man—they never knew who—and died when her carriage crashed into a piling.

I would never do it,…

I have serious addiction to trashy historical romance novels.

Please send help.

I am reading Once Upon A Tower by eloisajames and the characters are attending the wedding of Honoria Smythe-Smith which is a character from Julia Quinn. I love that historical romance writers write little nods to each other! It’s the cherry on top of an already enjoyable book!

We had so much fun figuring that out!
