The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet
By Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

If you haven’t had a chance to watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, then walk away for about 2 hrs, go watch it, then come back. And once you’ve come to your senses and done that, then you can pick up The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet. Not only for a wonderful story, but also for a continuation of the beloved web series adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Basically a book inspired the series which then inspired the book. Coolest thing ever!

Secret Diary fills in so many of the lovely gaps left by the web series because it comes directly from Lizzie Bennet’s perspective. Not only do you get to hear more about the most awkward dance ever, but you also get to read Darcy’s letter to Lizzie as well as transcripts from vital Darcy centric episodes.

What Ashley Clements brought to the role of Lizzie is captured in the tone of this book. At times it felt like I was watching another webisode. And that made it even more enjoyable!

So basically what I’m trying to say is that this book is delightful and I can’t wait to read Lydia’s forthcoming perspective novel. And see what else Pemberley Digital will come up with in the future.

If you bust through The LBD and this book then I suggest you start on Emma Approved and Frankenstein MD. Once you’re caught up with those, meet back here for more suggestions.

As usual, let me know what you think. Cause I wanna hear all about it! In the meantime, happy reading.
