Bridgerton season 1 vs the book The Duke and I

The premier of Bridgerton season 1 had a perfect timing. Many of us was still under lockdown because of Covid and to be honest, in desperate need of some romance!
I really enjoyed the first season. The casting was great, the chemistry between Daphne and Simon was definitely there. But how was the first season of Bridgerton compared to the book The Duke and I?

Bridgerton season 1

Compared to the book, the Netflix serie of Bridgerton season 1 had some changes in the main story but the changes that where made didn’t change the story or the characters too much. This is one of the few times when a serie is almost as good as the book.
Should you watch the serie first or read the book first? Both are equally good so in this case you can just choose what you are in the mood for.

The Duke and I

The Duke and I is an excellent historical romance book to read if you are new to the genre. The book is warm, funny and it’s easy to like the characters. A perfect book if you want to relax and enjoy a good romance story.

The Bridgerton serie

It’s the first book in a serie about the siblings in the family Bridgerton, written by Julia Quinn. The books can be read as stand alone but you will have a better experience if you read them in the correct order. Besides “The Duke and I” – these are the other books:

  • The Viscount who loved me
  • An offer from a gentleman
  • Romancing Mister Bridgerton
  • To Sir Philip, with love
  • When he was wicked
  • It’s in hiss kiss
  • On the way to the wedding

I have two favourites in the serie, and that is “The Viscount who loved me” and “To Sir Philip, with love”. Which are your favourites?
