Romancing a Bridgerton

Romancing a Bridgerton

June 7, 2024

Dearest Gentle Reader,

As the masses rush to the newsstands in anticipation of the latest exploits in secrets and seductions, I have been biding my time, waiting for the perfect morsel of gossip to stir the ton into a frenzy. And at long last, I have found it.

In the words of our favorite town gossip, Lady Whistledown, “Diamonds aren’t the only jewels that sparkle.” With that sentiment in mind, how about some book recommendations inspired by your favorite Bridgerton characters? Are you ready to fall for Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory, or Hyacinth? Which type of romance trope captures your heart?

We have it all: from fake relationships, grumpy and sunshine dynamics, and enemies-to-lovers stories. If you're a huge fan of Polin, like myself, then friends-to-lovers reads might satiate your thirst until Part 2 of Season 3 arrives. Perhaps you are eagerly waiting for Benedict’s fairytale love-at-first-sight and forbidden love to unfold. Or maybe Francesca’s second chance at love gives you hope for your own romantic journey.

Eloise’s marriage of convenience in the books might intrigue you, or maybe you believe, as I do, that Eloise’s story will diverge from the book and take on a more spirited romance we have yet to see. We certainly can’t forget Gregory’s love triangle or Hyacinth’s romance with the bad boy, either.

If you’re unsure of what you want, take a quiz to help you decide. Bonus points if you get Lady Whistledown herself.

Happy reading, dear friends. May your literary adventures be as captivating as the tales of the Bridgerton family.
