Spring Of Scoundrels Week 5

Book: The Perks Of Loving A Scoundrel


Before I begin:

SBU is influential πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‡

Monday: Diary Entry – Chapter 5

Alot to unpack πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‡ Didn’t get to read The Secret, but, in a general way, traveling somewhere for someone about to give birth πŸ€” Whereas The Secret takes place while in transit, TOOLAS takes place at the destination πŸ€” Funny πŸ˜„ πŸ˜‚ meet cute ☺️ Drunken antics πŸ₯΄ The assassination plot was unexpected πŸ€” and the exposed boob πŸ˜‚ Still too early to judge what I think, but I’m intrigued πŸ€” 

  • Another kidnapping for consistency please πŸ™πŸΎ Wilson β™₯️ reminds me of Jeffrey from Fresh Prince πŸ˜‚ History of twins πŸ€” This will come back later I feel… The doctor πŸ§‘β€βš•οΈ is in 😏 Sad Mary’s Bookish change was a result of Eric’s death ☠️πŸ₯²
  • Don’t notice age as much πŸ€” but i think she’s 26?! Grant involved in assassination plot πŸ€” Only validating suspicions and theories πŸ‘†πŸΌPreviously thought the revealed boob was funny πŸ˜„ but in front of Dickens?! πŸ˜‚ It is true… Where is Eleanor’s husband? Pissing meet cute β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‡
  • The nip slip πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ West (🀞🏼 spelling’s right). I associate scoundrel behavior with being flirtatious πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‡πŸ˜Š

Tuesday: Chapters 6 – 12

Yesterday’s chapters conveniently ended with Mary being ruined 😏 😱 It’s a sign the plot is paced well 😊 The way Claire told they’re parents πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Realized I like marriage of convenience as a trope 😏 Usually after a scandal πŸ€£πŸ˜‡ ✊🏽 to Mary for refusing West’s proposal. Got more on page time with Grant πŸ€” He IS suspicious 🀨 End of the section was a ball where I suspect more πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ will happen, West is growing more and more attracted to Mary 😍

  • Great summary as always 😊 Claire the morning after πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Mary persistent to investigate 🧐 Mouse 🐁πŸ₯°πŸ˜Š Lists 😍πŸ₯° I reacted the same way when West was telling Grant πŸ™…πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
  • Age is so important in the land of HR

Wednesday: Chapters 13 – 17

They both exploring the assassination plot 🧐 and when Mary goes to a ball, West takes her home 🏑 Carriage shennagans πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Mary discovering the next day, the note 😱 and that pushes their marriage of convenience πŸ™ŒπŸ½ The pages dedicated to the wedding night > wedding itself πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Mary binds West 😏 West finally sleeps soundly 😴 

  • Carriage πŸ”₯ French letters πŸ™ŒπŸ½ and relinquishing control to Mary πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Hrant is suspicious 🀨 πŸ€” The fart cushion πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Reading together is nice πŸ₯°πŸ˜ Liking West A LOT more after these chapters πŸ’‘ 

Thursday: Chapters 18 – 24

The chapter summaries are super helpful 😊 πŸ™ŒπŸ½ Mary the morning after 😏 Ashington being Mary’s brother 😁 Mary and West seriously 🧐 assassination plot, finding out more details 🀨 Nice to be in a new city πŸ™ πŸŒ† now 

  • Decided to just finish the book already πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈ if its just me but getting πŸ˜΅β€πŸ’« jumping in and out of the story
  • Thought zi read chapter 23 already but turns out I didn’t πŸ˜ŠπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€― Also glad Mary didn’t leave with Eleanor

Friday: Chapters 25 – Epilogue

Finished this Thursday, usually read the chapters morning of the day of πŸ€” full on investigation mode, moved to forefront of story (like the plot but also here for the romance). Trip without servants 🀞🏼More danger banging?! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜πŸ˜‚ Not really feeling the scoundrel-ness of West πŸ€” With Mary and West splitting up ✊🏽 Holding Carlson by the balls πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ˜‚ Danger bang πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ”₯ Really see here how sex can be Thera prayer fota relationship

End of book πŸ“–

The addition of the crime solving component, though fattening up the plot and story, but affected the romance πŸ€” No kidnapping πŸ™…πŸ»β€β™€οΈ but there’s danger banging 😏 ⚠️ 

Summary: Mary and West πŸ₯° overhear an assassination plot for the queen πŸ‘Έ They work together to save her 🧐 ✊🏽
