Intro to Bridgerton

By now you have probably heard of Bridgerton, the new series on Netflix that just can't stop growing in popularity! It may only have one season (and two more on the way), but let me tell you; it's one of my favorite shows!
Did you know it was originally a book series? Every book follows a different Bridgerton sibling (and there's and abundance of them) and their own love story. If you've followed my blog for a while you know how much I love companion series'! Given, I've only read two, but I can't wait to read the rest!
Since the series consists of companion novels, you can read them out of order. Sure, you might miss a few small details, but if there's a couple you don't like, you can easily skip their book. For example, I've read "The Duke and I" (the first book) and "An Offer From a Gentleman" (the third). 
The first book, like season one of the show, follows Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset. Daphne is not just looking for a suitor, but love. She wants what her parents once had. Simon wants to get his work in Clyvedon over with so that he can leave the dreaded town, but after he makes a deal with Daphne, he's become invested,
The third book's a Cinderella re-telling that follows Benedict Bridgerton and Sophie Beckett. When they meet at the masquerade, their chemistry is palpable. When Benedict takes off his mask and it's Sophie's turn, she runs. You'll have to read it yourself to find out the rest!
Fun Fact: The siblings were named in alphabetical order. I can only imagine that their parents were trying to get through the whole alphabet!
