Ever since Bridgerton arrived on Netflix, we’ve been obsessed. The witty banter, historical setting, and super steamy romance left us craving more. Thankfully, Queen Charlotte is coming to Netflix soon—and we can’t wait. We’re hoping for even more gorgeous dresses, handsome men, and royal drama!
If you’re as excited as we are for the Bridgerton spin-off, here are several YA books like Queen Charlotte to tide you over until it hits Netflix.
As a minor princess in Germany, Charlotte had limited prospects until she married King George III. Like Queen Charlotte, Princesses Sophronia, Daphne, and Beatriz are expected to wed the monarchs of neighboring kingdoms and expand their mother’s empire. Get ready for a breathtaking royal fantasy filled with romance, deception, and betrayal. It’s the perfect thing to fill the Bridgerton-sized hole in your heart until Queen Charlotte arrives.
Queen Charlotte was born in Germany and married King George III after their meddling families arranged the match—much like the characters in this story. It’s also no coincidence that these teenage lovebirds share the royal pair’s names (Sharlot and George) and fall in love despite the odds.
Can’t get enough of super-cute romances set in England? You’re in luck! This book is about an American girl named Britt who goes to the UK to compete in an epic scavenger hunt. You’ll love all the backstabbing, deception, awkward kisses, and Queen Charlotte vibes in this story!
We are a little (okay, very) obsessed with everything Harry, Meghan, and the rest of the royal family do. But have you ever wondered what America would be like if George Washington had become king instead of president? If you love reading about royals, romance, rivalries, and powerful families, you’ll want to binge-read this entire series before Queen Charlotte arrives on Netflix!
The American Revolution happened during the reign of Queen Charlotte and her husband, King George III. This fascinating historical novel gives you a look at the events of this turbulent period from the American side of the pond. Rebel Spy tells the story of a girl named Frannie who poses as a British loyalist while secretly passing information to George Washington’s Culper Spy Ring.
Although King Henry VIII was not married to Queen Charlotte, he was a British monarch who married some pretty memorable women (Anne Boleyn, anyone?). This book contains each wife’s story, from her rise to the throne to her (often deadly) downfall. Inside these pages, you’ll find all the dirty details of the conspiracies and obsessions that plagued Henry’s court!
Queen Charlotte was a fashion icon in her day, and she was an early champion of the Regency-era dresses that we all know and love. Author Kelly Jones adds a splash of magic and a dash of mystery to the time period in this irresistible novel about a teenager who becomes a spy. Humor, fashion, romance, and espionage—it doesn’t get any better than this!
Queen Charlotte puts a modern spin on a historical story, which we love. You’ll find the same humorous and out-of-context vibe in this quirky retelling of Pride and Prejudice. If you’ve ever wondered what Jane Austen’s beloved story would be like if everyone had cell phones, you need to pick up a copy!
