    1. Can I just say that I LOVED this book! Yes another fangirly moment brought to you by TSS! I just want to snuggle it while I’m sleeping and pet it’s shiny, pretty cover. I love a historical fiction, especially the ones that are set in the regency period, there’s just something about it that utterly captivates me. And I shouldn’t fail to mention that I’m a huge fan of romance, nothing feels better than being in love. So already this novel had two things going for it before I even cracked [...]

    2. Alexandra Stafford and her best friends, Vivi and Ella, are seventeen, beautiful, and experiencing their first Season in Regency London. They are also willful and independent and have absolutely no interest in being on the marriage mart. They have no patience for men who think women should be seen and not heard, and Alex takes great pleasure at shocking men with her entirely unladylike opinions on politics (much to her mother’s dismay.)When the Earl of Blackmoor dies in a mysterious accident, [...]

    3. UGH. Where should I start? With the fact that the characters sound nothing like they belong in the early 1800s? Or with the fact that the author uses every GD cliche in the book? Sometimes twice in the same chapter, within a page or two of each other. Maybe I should be begin by talking about how shallow I found the heroine's intelligence to be. Or by the fact that the book goes so shallowly into the truths of the time -- women were moved around like chess pieces to ensure their families' places. [...]

    4. Un roman interesant despre sacrificii, prietenie si iubire. Recenzia mea completa o găsiți aici:justreadingmybooks.wordpress.

    5. La verdad es que despues de leer las dos sagas de esta autora, cogi este libro con muchas ganas pero las expectativas han caido en picado Se nota que es el primer libro de esta autora y que, aunque se nota el estilo, le quedaba mucho por pulirLa historia es simple y plana, no he sentido la emocion ni la historia de amor entre los personajes principales ( no he visto la quimica ademas de ser todo muy precipitado) y la trama de espionaje , se ve a leguas quien es el traidor y el por que Ademas se [...]

    6. Let me admit to something straight off the bat--if your character’s name is Alexandra Elizabeth and she’s a brunette, you’ve already got yourself an interested reader in me. If your book is also set in Regency England, you’ve just made a sale. No questions asked. If you then make the book so interesting and captivating, with lively characters, attention to detail and gorgeous gowns described--well you just earned yourself a dedicated reader until you stop writing.The book begins with the [...]

    7. Really 3.5 starsd a frothy, enjoyable romp in the best possible way. The book is light on the mystery but quite delightful in the manners of the day. While Alexandra and her friends do have the expected modern attitudes and anachronistic tendencies, the language is overall very polished and does not feel nearly as out of place or stilted as it often does in many other historical YA novels.Some contemporary readers may not appreciate the book, but in truth, this is what a girl had to worry about [...]

    8. I love all kinds of romance, but as subgenres go -- historical is my least favorite. That whole world, with its sense of propriety, and the limitations placed on women always felt to me like a constricted environment for which a great relationship can bloom. That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed the romantic relationship between Alex and Gavin. I think the reason for that was because Alex and Gavin were such good friends from the start of the book. Gavin was like family -- even like a brother to [...]

    9. “There was a girl in the orangery. Find her.”I figured I might as well include this line, considering it was the only compelling line in the whole book. Otherwise, be prepared for flat, dumbed-down prose, clichéd characters, and predictable everything in the first book I’ve ever read that has earned the distinction of “Worse Than Montmorency.”This review is rather long. But I don't feel ire towardsThe Seasonso much as I resent the trends in historical fiction and chick lit that this b [...]

    10. First of all, let me state two things. One, I am a lover of great historical romances. Two, the author of this book has an undergrad degreee from Smith and a master's degree from Harvard. Pretty impressive, I think. With these two items on the table, let me present my argument that this was a really weak book. I have issues with the characters who are mainly stock characters. Alex doesn't want to get married, she's really smart, her parents are wealthy, blah, blah, blah. Gavin is like an older b [...]

    11. Alex has no desire to get married. She is determined to laugh off the trials of her first season along with her two best friends and to prevail against her mother’s matrimonial ploys.What she is not prepared for is to watch Lord Blackmoore, one of her childhood friends, swallowed up by a conniving marriage seeker. Or for the feelings that grasp Alex around the throat and seem to start swallowing her every time Blackmoore appears across the room. Or for the pure dread that claims her when she a [...]

    12. Jane Austen wanna be--there's even one of those long awful afterwards where she gushes about sitting in (really!) "Aunt Jane's garden", drinking in the atmosphere.Unfortunately for her (and for all those undiscerning teens who read stuff like The Clique and The Luxe) she's an incredibly mediocre writer. Every cliche is here-eyes compared perpetually to gemstones, lavish descriptions of clothing, a brooding male hero, ad nauseum. Each of the three girls is described in lavish detail--and of cours [...]

    13. Me esperaba más de este libro, será porque adoré la serie Love by Numbers y The Rules of Scoundrels. Creo que a la historia se le podía sacar más partido, desde luego los que ha escrito después para mi han sido una delicia.

    14. I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to. I became a fan of Regency romance quite a long time ago, and frankly, I've gotten sick of the genre. Everything became scripted, plots have become rote, or in some cases, just nonexistent, and too many h/h I've read lately have had the personality of lukewarm dishwater. This book is a lighthearted romp through Lady Alexandra's first Season, and it is thoroughly YA. There is romance, duh, since it is about catching a husband after all, but there's not [...]

    15. Every once in awhile I wonder how I would have fared during this era. Worrying about what I would wear to "catch" the right man and keeping up with etiquette of the times. And knowing all the while it's better to marry someone with money and status than a handsome hunk that is poor. I would have done miserably.Alex (short for Alexandra) is preparing for her first season. The nature of this is how it sounds; the young ladies and men of London's high society go out and hunt for the best mate possi [...]

    16. WOW. What a STINKER. The writing is atrocious (so many terrible cliches -- I lost count in the first few pages -- but as an example, the phrase "pomp and circumstance" occurs twice within three pages). There is absolutely nothing in the writing, characters, dialogue, or setting to suggest that this is Regency England (the main character tells her maid that she is "IN A FUNK," people). The romance is super, super boring and the "mystery" is utterly predictable and, uh, not at all mysterious. And [...]

    17. Reviewed by Ashley B for TeensReadTooSeventeen-year-old Lady Alexandra Stafford is being introduced into Regency London this season. Too bad she doesn't fit in with her sharp tongue and the fact that she hates dress fittings. The last thing Alex wants is to marry, which is why her mother, the Duchess, is so thrilled it is finally her season. While Alex attends lavish balls and extravagant dinner parties with her two best friends, Ella and Vivi, she also manages to uncover an important secret inv [...]

    18. I've read a lot of romance and a fair amount of regency romance and I think Sarah MacLean's debut, The Season, is one of the best. It really has all the qualities that I love most in a book, especially a regency romance. I fell in love with her characters and rooted for them the whole way through! The dialog was witty and clever -- so much so that when I was reading I kept chuckling and giggling. I also swooned a lot -- I actually put the book down just so I could savour the tension. And then I [...]

    19. I'm only 70 pages in, but it feels like a 5 star book already. I can't wait to see what happens to Alex (Alexandra) and her friends as they debut in their first season. Alex also gets caught up in helping an old family friend (who happens to be very good looking). I can't wait to see this book unfold.Having finished The Season, I can now say that it was even better than it seemed. I'm in love with this book. Alex, Vivi, and Ella are vibrant and intelligent protagonists. Everybody should have suc [...]

    20. I absolutely LOVE this book. I couldn't put it down. The characters were simply amazing, at times the plot left my heart pounding. When I first began reading it I wanted Alex and Gavin to be together; it just seemed so perfect. Then when they finally shared their first kiss, I was terrified that Gavin may be killed by the same person who killed his father. I was absolutely frightened for his safety, I kept pushing myself to keep reading just to make sure that nothing happened to Gavin or Alex. A [...]

    21. Unlike most young ladies from titled families in Regency England, seventeen-year-old Lady Alexandra Stafford, daughter of the Duke of Worthington, is not looking forward to her debut in London Society. Neither are Alex's two friends, Ella and Vivi. Alex dreads the thought of marriage, as she is an independent thinker and feels most men just want a pretty wife with no thoughts of her own.Gavin Sewell, their neighbor, is a close friend of Alex's three older brothers and Alex's childhood protector. [...]

    22. This book was a very pleasant read. Although the writing style or speech wasn't very authentic for the time period, it was easily accessible, making it quite a comfort read. I found the plot to be quite enthralling and even though it didn't 'excite' me as such, it was smooth flowing and I just wanted to keep reading on. The romance between Alex and Gavin was just absolutely wonderful to read. A nice change from my usual reads and very accessible.

    23. This was really, really, really boring and I didn't even get halfway through so I'm not going to rate this one.

    24. Did someone say perfect? Well I did! This is the most enjoyable, fun, and romantic book I've read in a good long while! And I suggest you read it RIGHT NOW!I don't usually go for historical books, there are usually all sorts of things I haven't got a clue about (what are they riding in, what is this weird hobby etc, remember I remember nothing from history class) but in The Season but I didn't have to put up with that frustration and what was left were the beautiful clothes, traditions, and mann [...]

    25. Okay, so to be honest I'm not that far along into the book but I have some thoughts already.First, the subject matter and time period will probably not be of much interest to teen readers. There may be one or two who would check it out after reading the flap, but that teen would be few and far between. It interests me, but that's because of all of those bosom busters that I used to read, love me some regency England.Second, because I really love regency England I've read countless nonfiction boo [...]

    26. I cannot wait to read more books from Sarah MacLean, although, I might wait a while. This book made such an impact I can't wait to read more like it. First, the characters. The main character, Alex, was exactly what I thought woman should be like in that era; smart, funny, confident, and not controlled by men. Speaking of men, the "love interest" Gavin Blackmoor was pretty awesome to. He, like her, was wonderfully developed in my opinion. He was rude. at certain times but I believe that just ad [...]

    27. Seventeen year old Alexandra Stafford is about to be unleashed for her first season, and unlike the other girls in London, she could care less. She wants nothing to do with the bachelors who throw themselves at her feet, and even less to do with the dress fittings and dinner parties. That is, until her childhood friend Gavin comes back into her life, newly titled as the Earl of Blackmoor, after an accident took his father's life. Or was it an accident? Alexandra is about to be embroiled in a mys [...]

    28. a debut that drew me in on so many levels.i loved the season for maclean's wonderfulway of setting the period / history / culture / politicsfor us with utter finesse. i loved it for thefeisty, intelligent heroine, alexandra, and her friendseir friendship is at the core of the book, anddepicted wonderfully. i loved it for the hero, blackmoor,who is alexandra's equal in every way. maclean doesn'tmake either perfect, but we love them despite theirflaws. and we root that they will love one another t [...]

    29. Okay, I'm a little bit biased here, being the author's editor and bff and all, but truly, THE SEASON is one of the most deliciously fun books I've read in a long time. The characters are feisty and compelling, the plot is fast-paced and intriguing. And I just wanted Alex and Gavin TO MAKE OUT!!!! So, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of THE SEASON, sit back with a cozy cup of tea and prepare to savor each juicy line!
