Goodread’s Monday: Lizzy Bennet’s Diary

I went looking for some new memes to keep the blog fresh and new ideas coming. I found one called GoodReads Monday. You look back through your GoodReads To Be Read list and share the oldest book on there. I tend to mark nearly any Jane Austen related book as To Be Read so I’ll be sharing some of them in hopes, I’ll get myself to read it or interest you into reading a book you may have missed.

Lizzy Bennet's Diary: Inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and PrejudiceTitle: Lizzy Bennet’s Diary
Author: Marcia Williams
Publication Date:April 22, 2014
Date Added to List:April 14, 2014


Synopsis: When Lizzy Bennet’s father gives her a diary, she fancies she will use it to write a novel, as her real life is exceedingly dull. Then the handsome Mr. Bingley moves to nearby Netherfield Park, and suddenly life is every bit as thrilling as a novel would be. Who will he dance with at the Meryton ball? Who is his haughty friend? Will Lizzy ever receive a marriage proposal? Readers will have to read her diary to find out! Marcia Williams offers a lively introduction to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice in a highly illustrated scrapbook-diary format, featuring such novelties as foldout notes from sisters and suitors, an elegant bill of fare, and an invitation to the ball.

Why I Wanted to Read It:I was interested in the fact that it was “a highly illustrated scrapbook”. Like other books on this list and that I’ve shared, I liked that it was an interesting take on P&P.
