This was awesome! A Pakistani retelling of Pride and Prejudice *very* faithful to the original. I've read my fair share of retellings and none of them so closely followed Austen's plot and characters so that at times I felt almost like I was reading the original. But I also felt like Kamal put her own fascinating spin on the story with its setting in contemporary Pakistan with a Muslim family. One brilliant change: making Colonel Fitzwilliam gay!

#weeklyforecast, part deux ?? @Cinfhen

The beauty of being a gainfully (and gratefully!) employed grownup is that you get to be Mrs. Claus for yourself and #treatyoshelf to some new seasonal beauties. Yay! ???

I'm a HUGE fan of contemporary retellings of Pride & Prejudice and the tagged title happens to be a gender-swapping one! I also love me some YA and as stated on the cover, "Let it Snow" is now on Netflix!

Excited to dive into these!

Cinfhen Wise purchase, Mrs. Claus!!! Enjoy ❤️📚😘 (edited) 7d

#bookreport @Cinfhen
Pretty disappointing week of reading....
Finished both, but both were decidedly #Mehnotyeah
- #unpopularopinion time... Although I liked the story itself, I found the writing of Erotic Stories to be pretty poor.
- After loving ‘Eligible‘, I had high hopes of this Austen Project novel...but this one just didn‘t work for me. The premise was not updated enough, so just didn‘t work in its modern day setting. 👎

squirrelbrain I didn‘t love Erotic Stories either; I liked it but that was all...nothing special. 1w
AlaMich I like the first half of Erotic Stories, but then it turned into a sort of mystery, as I recall, and just got weird. 1w
Cinfhen At least you completed it for bookclub😏what did the bookclub think about it🤔 1w
KarenUK @Cinfhen it‘s on Wednesday.... I‘ll be interested to see... 🤔 1w

This was fun! The ending was rather abrupt, but otherwise it was an enjoyable, quick read.
