Very good read!

I absolutely loved it. Pride & Prejudice is one of my favorite movies and I always love reading YA and NA re-tellings of the story. This is definitely my favorite re-telling so far and I love how fresh and modern it was. I never got around to watching the YouTube channel, but it is definitely on my to-do list. Check this series out! You will not regret it!

I held off on this purchase, thinking it would mainly be a recap of the much-loved web series, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, but I couldn't have been more wrong. The book reveals a wonderful backstory and even more character depth to support the original storyline. And yes, "Dizzie" fans, there are even more wonderful scenes and stories with Darcy that we didn't hear about the first time. I travel by plane frequently, and often had to read on my e-reader without an internet connection, so I can say with certainty that the book works as a stand-alone, but that said, it's definitely even better if you follow the hyper-links to the videos as you go along. My only disappointment? It would have been nice if there had also been links to the supplementary videos with Maria Lu, Lydia Bennet, and Gigi Darcy to help follow along with the entire universe/series. But even that wasn't enough to make me dock a star from my review.

Lizzie Bennet! Recently, I re-watched my beloved YouTube series, "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" and immediately upon finishing knew I had to read The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet. I'd read a few reviews on the book and knew it it was the perfect time to read this "behind the scenes" addition. It also helped as I was able to "hear" the character's in my head - or in some cases, Lizzie's interpenetration of said characters - merely adding to me enjoyment of this novel. If you've seen "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries," the plot here is no surprise. What is nice though, is that we get a lot of extra information that we didn't get in the diaries. We see Lizzie's interactions with her mother and father, which I really enjoyed, and more of Jane, Lydia, Charlotte, so on and so forth. Not to mention, we find out more detail of what happened at the wedding/first encounter with Darcy and the Less, the events that occurred while Jane and Lizzie stayed at Netherfield, and Lizzie describes her day spent with Gigi and Darcy touring San Fransisco.  I do wish, however, that some of the scenes Lizzie had filmed weren't transcribed. Fortunately there were only two and while I cannot remember the first one off the top of my head, the fact that Gratitude (Episode 98) is transcribed really bummed me out! I would have loved to know what was running through Lizzie's head at that point. But alas! I did love that Darcy's letter was "taped" in her diary though - that was a nice peak in to his character. If you watched and loved "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries," I recommend adding to that experience with The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet. It's a fun and quick read that fleshes out - though the YouTube series did a pretty amazing job of doing so on its own - these characters and while everything is still from Lizzie's perspective, we get to learn her inner and deepest thoughts about what is happening around her and pulls us deeper into her world.

Let's talk about things that are completely adorable. Such as this book. I loved the video series, and bought the book immediately when it came out, and didn't regret it for a minute! Couldn't put it down!

Received a copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit I had never seen “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” before receiving the ARC for this book, even though I’m friends with the girl who plays Lydia. I know… I’m a bad friend. Sorry, MK! But I’m watching it now and you’re fabulous!!! ;) That being said, I’m kind of glad I went in without any kind of expectations because Oh Em Gee! What a fantastic read! I am so grateful I was given the privilege to read/review this book because I have NOTHING but good things to say about it. This was an inspired and creative retelling of a classic story that translated exceedingly well to the internet era. I found this was much truer to the original story than any other re-tellings I’ve encountered over the years, but without being completely ludicrous. Arranged marriages don’t really fly in this century… Just saying.  I loved the way they updated and even improved Austen’s characters. Charlotte was my favorite improvement. She’s a bit of a drag usually (Sorry Jane Austen), but I loved how smart, sassy, and independent she was! Lydia was finally a three-dimensional character. THANK YOU. So often she’s written off as the annoying, selfish, and impulsive little brat of a sister. It was nice to see someone young and vulnerable underneath all of that outrageous behavior. Plus finding a way to set this in an age heavily dominated by the internet and instant access to easy communication was fascinating. Every piece of your personal life can be on display if you choose to share it. But we seem to have lost the art of communication. Simply talking to a person is a difficult task. I think the authors handled these themes and situations with great humor and honesty. This is a book for everyone. It’s laugh out loud funny and filled to the brim with heart. Austen fans will LOVE it. Bridget Jones Fans. YA fans. ChickLit fans. Etc. This is a MUST read. Run, don’t walk, to grab yourself a copy of “The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet."
