The Bridgerton books have introduced us to many a fictional boyfriend and melted hearts across the world. Now, Julia Quinn is gifting fans with yet another literary gem ahead of the release of Bridgerton season 2

Just in time for the holidays, and to whet our romance-reading appetite, the famed author has announced the release of The Wit and Wisdom of Bridgerton: Lady Whistledown's Official Guide. Who better to take us through this adventure than the lovable and all-knowing Lady Whistledown

While this might not introduce us to any new dukes (*sigh*), we will be able to relive the best quotes and words of wisdom from our beloved characters. It's perfect for fans of both the book and TV series. If you were searching for holiday gifts, Julia Quinn's got you covered.

The latest addition to the Bridgerton series, this roundup of quotes includes the most "dramatic, romantic, and memorable" lines from your favorite characters on the Netflix series. 

Plus, this new release is the perfect distraction before the new season hits Netflix in 2022. Although we are still not quite over Regé-Jean Page's departure from Bridgertoneven if avid readers of the series expected his exit—we're still anxious to see what the Regency romance is cookin' up, and Anthony Bridgerton will be in the spotlight. 

"The concept is that every season, there's a couple and that couple is the hot couple that you're falling in love with, right," director Shonda Rhimes told Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab). "And there are eight Bridgertons."

We are certainly loyal to Simon, Duke of Hastings, but there are many steamy moments ahead that are going to be just as hot—we can pretty much guarantee it.
