Bridgerton Books 6-8 with New Covers in New Formats ~ Plus a Whole Lot More!

June 29, 2021

The final three books in the Bridgerton series are now available with their beautiful new covers in trade paperback: When He Was Wicked (Francesca), It’s in His Kiss (Hyacinth), and On the Way to the Wedding (Gregory).

The new hardcover editions for these three titles will be available on July 6, as well as the de facto ninth book: The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After, the collection of all eight Second Epilogues, plus the short story, Violet in Bloom.

Romancing Mr. Bridgerton, book 4, is now available with its new cover in mass market max paperback — a format that’s smaller than trade paperback, but a bit bigger and more comfortable to hold than the “old”, regular mass market standard.

To see when the next editions will be published, here is a handy guide with all the dates. All are available for pre-order, and if you want, you can have yours autographed!

Bridgerton Spinoff On the Way!

May 14, 2021

As reported exclusively in Deadline Hollywood, Netflix is adding a second show to the Bridgerton franchise: a limited prequel series based on the origins of Queen Charlotte, which will be written by Shonda Rhimes.

From the Deadline article:

“The Queen Charlotte limited series will center on the rise and love life of a young Queen Charlotte, the reimagined character added to the Bridgerton series that was not in Julia Quinn’s novels on which the show is based. Played by Golda Rosheuvel, Queen Charlotte quickly became a fan favorite and one of Bridgerton‘s breakout characters. The spinoff will also tell the stories of young Violet Bridgerton and Lady Danbury.”

From Julia Quinn: “I am over the moon with this news and so incredibly grateful to Netflix, the Shondaland team, and most especially all the Bridgerton fans who have welcomed the show and the books into their lives.”

JQ couldn’t be more excited about it.

Want even more backstory? There is much right here on to explore including an essay about how JQ created Lady Whistledown, Behind the Scenes for all her books, and mugs!

“Aren’t they splendid?” (<— TeamJQ thinks that is what Lady Whistledown would say!)
