I wasn‘t sure what to expect when I started reading this Austen retelling, but it‘s so good. I enjoyed the modern spin with an interesting cast of diverse characters. Really good debut from Nikki Payne.

Bailed. If you like contemporary romance and Jane Austen, this is a fun read. I just am not a fan of contemporary romance.

Three cheers for making it through another week! How are you celebrating Friday night, Littens? For me, it's a flowery vodka drink and an adaptation of P&P that I'm fairly skeptical about. Either way, the #BooksAndBooze combo is making my night! #PemberLittens

dabbe Same here! (though the drink is vodka + Perrier + Crystal Light). Cheers! 🥃 12mo

I am so picky about DC set books, and I loved this modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice that managed to both be true to the original and yet seem modern the whole time. Watching Liza and Dorsey figure it out was adorable.
