    I LOVED it!

    This is the follow up book to WHAT HAPPENS IN LONDON and I adored it! It kept me in fits of giggles because Sebastian is such an awesome hero. He's not your typical tortured hero but a hero that you're going to grow to love because he's so great! I enjoyed this book immensely and this book is JQ at her best. Such a fun book! You won't be disappointed!

    I was... disappointed.

    I love Julia Quinn. Everything she writes has always been very enjoyable. So, when I picked up Ten Things, I was prepared to be delighted... but, I was not.

    While the idea for the story was sound, the writing didn't deliver. The story and action was muddled by too much internal dialogue-- and I felt very disconnected from the story. The whole book felt like a bunch of different internal rambles pieced together. Usually Quinn weaves a vibrant, visual tale full of wit and fun... this book didn't have that spark. In fact, there wasn't enough description, setting, or plot on the page for me to even be able to paint an image in my mind... or even to feel like I was a part of the action.

    If this is your first Julia Quinn novel, don't be discouraged... She's a great writer and has oodles of other books for you to enjoy. For me, though, this just wasn't one of them.

    What a wonderful, amazing and absolutely delightful book.

    We are born with some understanding of where we place in the general rankings of society. There is the possibility to move up in stature as a result of a marital match but for the most part we live and die in the same general area. But this would not be true for Sebastian Grey as he was not born with a title but could in fact inherit one were his uncle not sire a son. His uncle however, really wants anyone but Sebastian to inherit his title and is determined to marry and have a son. Sebastian is therefore seen by proper London society as marriageable because perhaps, just maybe there is a possibility that his uncle at his advanced age would not have a son and Sebastian could become a titled gentleman. Sebastian states clearly that he wants nothing that his uncle has -- or so he thought until he set his eyes upon Miss Annabel Winslow, the woman his uncle decided to marry and the resulting circumstances will have the Ton talking for many a day.

    Annabel is not fond of Lord Newbury with his age being the least of her concerns, but she must marry to help support the family who is dependent on her now that her father is deceased. Her maternal jaunty grandmother is trying to fix her up and marry her off even though she sees Annabel as such the unsophisticated country mouse and explains that a woman can marry one man, yet be affectionate with another. Annabel is resolved to her fate until life takes an unexpected turn when she meets Sebastian after she trips over him, literally. He is charming, handsome and so irresistible to women that you would think Annabel might know better than to steal a kiss from him. But he draws her to him so that she becomes blind to everyone and everything when he is near. He makes her feel different, special and beautiful in ways she never experienced, and lets her know that she is desired for reasons other than to produce an heir. But Sebastian's uncle will not take this lying down and when he finds that Sebastian is pursing what he rightfully believes he owns, fists are drawn and a competition for Annabel's affection is issued.

    There are secrets between them but none as great as the one Sebastian is holding back from Annabel. He may have declared his love, lifelong devotion and desire to have many children, but will he confess that he is a clandestine writer who pens graphic novels under a woman's name? Can he trust her enough to tell her all his dreams and desires? Sebastian believes he can because while his writing career was a dividing point in his life and had him view himself as before and after he began his writing career he is again standing at the crossroads where he sees what his life is and what it can be with Annabel as his wife.

    There are 100 things I love about this book but the main one is that it is a joy to read. Sebastian and Annabel are so full of life and each bring so much of their own story to the book that together they create magic. Julia Quinn is the gold standard for historical romance and her books are something you can anticipate reading with a great story, wonderful characters and a little bit about the gossipy London society thrown in. You know when you read her books that everything will circle around the two main characters and the draw they have for each other, but the additional characters always bring so much to the book without crowding out the main characters.

    Witty, Charming, and Wonderful

    I love a book that can make me laugh with the characters and not at them, this is one such book. It is wonderful from the first page to the last!! The story in engaging, the characters are lovable, and the writing is fabulous. I've read quite a few of Ms. Quinn's books and this is by far my favorite...so far. I plan to read them all and keep reading them as she writes them!!!!

    Corsets, proposals, and novels by NovaAvon

    I really enjoyed the plot of this book. The romantic conflict made sense. The lovely Annabell is being courted by Sebastian's much older, titled, and jaded Uncle. Except for Annabell's grandparents everyone else can see that the marriage is not a good idea. Oh! But what to do, Annabell's family needs her to marry well in order to avoid poverty. Then Annabell meets Sebastian, the poor but handsome heir to his Uncle's title and fortune. Did I mention that the nasty Uncle hates Sebastian. Neither at first is aware if the others relationship to the nasty old Uncle, but that doesn't stop the attraction. Naturally, the young couple fall in love and have a happy ending.... but what happens along the way is interesting, funny and very entertaining. What a great summer read!

    Definitely a good read.

    I don't love all of Julia Quinn's books, but this one was wonderful. Sometimes her characters feel a bit contrived and not well conceived. This book was GREAT. Loved the dialogue, the characters and the humor. Do pick this one up.

    A Really Lovely Book

    This book was a good read. Very funny. I think those words sum up a lot of what Julia Quinn does. She writes with a lot of humor incorporated in her books.

    There was a fun twist, an evil villain, a feisty heroine, and a charming hero. These words barely graze the surface of Quinn's latest work. I found Sebastian to be charming, funny, and quite kind. I think that there are moments where humor is overly worked in, but, in general, it is a fabulous read for fun.

    Wonderfully Funny Book

    Another wonderfully funny and sweet romance by this author. The lead characters were both engaging and sweet. I liked the mention of the prior characters and scenes from the prior book, What Happens in London, too. Annabel is a wonderful female lead. She is funny, witty, romantic and thankfully, has a strong character. She wrestles with her duty to her family and protecting them, versus her own happiness. Good plot. Then comes Sebastian, the male lead. Not exactly an Alpha male, as is typical of Quinn's male leads, but he does stand up and protect quite forcefully when the time arrives. I also love evil characters who are just so evil one doesn't mind hating them and wait for the moment when they get what they deserve. Lord Newberry is definitely a great, evil character. He gets what he deserves, but it isn't what I expected! What a great book.

    One of Quinn's best!

    I love Julia Quinn and this is one of my favorite books that she has written. Sebastien has humor and depth. The dialogue manages to be both touching and funny. I just reread this book after about two years and it was as lovely as I remembered it being.

    Great Series

    All of the books in this series are good. Great Romance novels, funny, serious, emotional roll-a-coaster ride and interesting characters. You might prefer one better than the others or in a different order, but all of them were good reads.

    4.5 stars
    ~Reviewed by ANN &amp; posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    It was a riot reading this book and if you’re not careful, you could probably spring a rib just by laughing so much! ~ Under the Covers

    Annabelle Wislow has entered her very first season and she is being courted by the Earl of Newbury. At 75 and in possession of a horrid personality, the last thing Annabelle wants is to wed the old man. But because of father’s recent death, he seems the most prospective suitor she can have. That is until she meets the Earl of Newbury’s nephew, the handsome and roguish Sebastian Grey.

    Ahhhh, Sebastian! What a magnificent character he is and possibly one of my many favorites of Julia Quinn! He is utterly charming, in possession of devilish good looks and isn’t shy about using it against Annabelle. He loves teasing her until she is bright red like a tomato and he’s got to be the sweetest man ever! So much so that sweetness can be harmful to our heroine!

    I loved the other half of Sebastian as well. Quinn creates depth in Sebastian’s character right off the bat. We see his struggle with insomnia and what he does in that time when the world is asleep. We see his PTSD become fully realized in certain scenes of the book and we also see how Annabelle’s presence in society brings forth a sparkle in Seb’s life.

    Suddenly, Seb is noticing the minute details that make Annabelle so desirable and he picks at her until it’s funny. It was a riot reading this book and if you’re not careful, you could probably spring a rib just by laughing so much! Quinn infuses humor in every sentence of this book and it shines because of it.

    I have to say a few things about the audiobook. This is where I wasn’t too ecstatic about it all. At times I liked the narrator and then at other times, I hated it. She pronounced Sebastian’s name in such a grating way that I winced every time she did and sometimes, I felt she was taking away from the storyline rather than adding to it. At one point, I contemplated stopping to audiobook to simply read the book myself, but due to time constraints, I just toughed it out instead. That being said, this wasn’t my favorite audio adaption of the book, but I still found a lot to like about Quinn’s writing. Her trademark humor and incredibly unique characters shine even through bad accents and weird pronunciations.
