JQ on the Today Show, plus a Goodreads giveaway! - Julia Quinn

JQ on the Today Show, plus a Goodreads giveaway!

April 24, 2024

Set your alarm clocks! Julia Quinn will be back on the Today Show on Friday, May 3, recommending five fabulous books for spring. We don’t know the exact time of her segment, but it’s probably in the 9am hour.

Other great news: US residents can enter to win one of 50 copies of Romancing Mister Bridgerton (the new, tie-in cover featuring Nicola Coughlan as Penelope and Luke Newton as Colin) on Goodreads, courtesy of Avon Books. The giveaway runs through April 30.

Autographed books are always fun: Don’t forget that University Book Store is taking preorders for the new edition of Romancing Mister Bridgerton and the beautiful new Bridgerton Luxe Collectors’ editions. These hardbound 2-in-1 books are absolutely gorgeous, and because JQ’s American publisher modeled them after her French special editions, we know exactly how they look and feel. (Scrumptious.) If you love pretty books, you’re going to want these on your shelves.

**Two Autographed-by-JQ Notes** University Bookstore carries all Julia Quinn titles in all available editions, so if you prefer your Colin & Penelope without the actors on the cover, or you’re looking to binge a deep cut JQ series (Bevelstokes, anyone?), that’s no problem. Also, orders of all four Bridgerton Luxe editions will ship together in September when editions 3 & 4 become available.

What JQ does when she’s not writing: Read an article at Shondaland.com about JQ’s Advocacy work fighting book bans in the United States. While you’re at it, lend your name and support by signing her petition.

We’re spilling the tea: That’s right, Republic of Tea is launching four new Bridgerton teas! Perhaps you’d like a cup of Bridgerton Brothers: Triple Earl Grey? Or maybe you’re more of a Francesca: Rose Camomile type? Also new: Colin & Penelope: Ginger Peach Vanilla and Eloise: Lemon Mint Black Tea. Yum!

The books and the shows come together here.
