    1. Admittedly, I haven t read Pride and Prejudice since I was in high school which means I might as well have never read it That said, though I have some vague memories of the original, I m deciding to review this as a lesfic novel that stands on its own For a love story, this fits the ice queen vs gregarious person dynamic where the couple initially hate each other The feeling is definitely dramatic than comedy The cast is large but distinct and so is the lead couple, Lizzy and Darcy We get the s [...]

    2. I will be the first to admit I have never read Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice I know, I know, how have I gotten this far in life without this reading this classic book What I have read is The Story of Lizzy and Darcy by Grace Watson Watson has shaken things up a bit and made this a same sex adaptation with a modern day twist A truly delightful read.Lizzy Bennet has just graduated from college and is ready to head to London for a career in the book publishing industry Her dream job in the exci [...]

    3. When I heard about this book I got really excited I ve been wanting exactly this for a while now I m not really a classics person but I do love Pride Prejudice after falling in love with the Lizzie Bennett Diaries when I was 15 So, as someone who loves seeing classic stories adapted into a queer version, I saw Pride Prejudice as the perfect candidate for a modern f f, even trying and failing to write an outline of one myself And low and behold, this book now exists So I ll start off with changes [...]

    4. This is a great debut novel I remember reading this book way back in high school when I hated everything that even looked like a book so I only remembered the major story lines Reading this however brought it all back I find it really difficult to rate this book As much as I tried seeing it simply as a standalone novel, I kept comparing it to the original so here goes nothing.First off I thought the author really captured the original Darcy s character I remember thinking what a pompous prick th [...]

    5. Okay, for this book is hard for me to review, because for the first 200 pages, I loved it I thought it was a smart and interesting retelling of PP that managed to translate the age old story into good modern terms But then it started to lose itself Some of the things I loved Lizzy She s such a great character Sisters Jane and Lizzy So important The way the Bennet family as a whole was translated Jane and her gap years, Sander and his dramatics, Mark and his quietness How queer an unapologetic ab [...]

    6. Oh wow Actually, I m torn between 4 5 stars This book is amazing To think this is a debut novel.A modern day take on NA Pride and Prejudice with a twist.This book is told on Lizzy s POV, I would have love to read Darcy s POV too I love all the twist and turns, all the flaws and how they manage to fix it I love how the author tackle all the differences of each character You will be pissed at them, you will pity them, you will laugh with them all those emotions Very well written.This a clean roman [...]

    7. Well, this is certainly the most ambitious retelling of a classic that I ve read Mind you, I haven t actually read many.I enjoyed how I couldn t put this down I missed the feeling of being up all night reading a story regardless of the fact that I knew the outcome Knew how it will turn out but still It was enjoyable.However, this book could have used a lot of editing Especially when it comes to spelling and simple grammar The story like I said was ambitious and so could have benifited from some [...]

    8. This is the first book that I ve finished in what feels like AGES, and I stayed up till 3 30am reading it all the way through I have ALWAYS wanted a queer lady version of this story And I am so so happy that it exists and is so lovely

    9. Are you a Pride Prejudice fan If so then check out this adaptation by Grace Watson It s my first F F read but was definitely an enjoyable one She handled modernizing PP gracefully and perfectly I will be honest the first 40% for me was a little dry, but given the spin placed on PP I wasn t surprised I thought PP was dry in the beginning too Lizzy Bennet is a recent university grad getting read to work in the real world Her Mom in all her quirkiness throws a party to celebrate In walks Darcy and [...]

    10. Slight disclaimer here I have never actually read Pride and Prejudice, but have seen a few retellings of the story, so I pretty much get the gist, I think.I m a huge fan of retellings And I m an even bigger fan of retellings with f f relationships in the center So, I fully expected to love The Story of Lizzy and Darcy While I did end up liking it as a whole, there were a few things that kept me from loving it.The Good I absolutely loved that this book was so diverse You have lesbian, bisexual, t [...]

    11. Original review on Molly LollyFive stars This story was completely lovely I loved how Ms Watson took a story that is treasured and made it completely her own She kept all of the wonderful parts about the story and left them exactly as they were, if slightly changed to fit her story You can see where she kept true to the story and where she added her own voice to work It is seriously completely brilliant and I need everyone to read it While the story is clearly based on characters, setting and so [...]

    12. Actual rating 4 1 2 stars.This review also appears on my blog alexreadsboooks______When Lizzy Bennet and Darcy Williams meet there s an instant dislike between them But when Lizzy s sister Jane and Darcy s best friend Charlie fall in love they have to spend time together But as they get to know each other they also start to realise that maybe they judged too fast.Thanks a lot to Grace Watson for providing me with a free review copy I am going to start this review by saying that to be fully hones [...]

    13. A very strong first novel from this author.There are two ways to review this book as a novel unto itself or as a modernized version of Pride and Prejudice I m sure those who have studied the latter well will have a lot to say I read it in high school and didn t remember much except for the fact that Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy started out hating one another and ended up together.This story is similar in that respect Lizzie Bennett has just graduated from university and is heading to London to [...]

    14. As someone who has recreated the Pride and Prejudice story as gay in my head about a billion times, I was beyond excited when I found this It was funny, smart, interesting, and Grace Watson translated the characters well into a modern setting I found myself rooting for both Lizzy and Darcy and Charlie and Jane with a frightening intensity In so many ways, this is exactly the beautiful, fluffy, yet serious wlw plotline I ve been dreaming of my entire life I loved that Will Fitz was trans, I loved [...]

    15. This is not the sort of book I usually read I am a fantasy girl, almost exclusively, and I ve never read or particularly wanted to read Pride and Prejudice However, a friend told me about this book and I had to check it out, and I ended up LOVING it From what I understand, this is a young author s first novel, and there are certain small things that kind of show her inexperience that is to say, the writing itself is not a museum piece or anything But when I was reading, I did not care one bit Th [...]

    16. 3 5 starsGod, that ending was ADORABLE This is definitely a book that improves the further you get into it I really struggled with the writing style towards the beginning, and I found that the writing didn t really engage me in a positive way at the start Everything seemed a bit rushed, so it was only after around the 40% mark, when Lizzy started her internship, that I properly got into this.I think my favourite moment by far is a scene between Will and Lizzy halfway through that literally had m [...]

    17. A Joyfully Jay review 4.25 starsMatchmaking, misunderstandings, and making up along with merriment and mischef are a small part of what sets this light hearted re imagining of Jane Austen s timeless and much beloved Pride and Prejudice apart from the others of its kind Lizzy Bennet is a young British woman possessed of an open heart, a keen intellect, and than enough pride to be instantly recognizable Her sister, Jane, is not only beautiful outside but inside as well, working tirelessly with an [...]

    18. Check out even book reviews on my blog lifeofafemalebibliophile.The Story of Lizzy and Darcy is a modern day LGBT adaptation of Pride Prejudice, a beloved classic by many To be honest I was a bit wary to review this book since I couldn t really get into the original story, but I wanted to give it a try since I love retellings of classics Watson s writing had me hooked from the beginning of the book The modern day setting made it easy for the reader to engage in and I immediately liked the chara [...]

    19. It s been at least a year since the last time I ve read this, but I still adore it just as much It ticks all of my boxes Austen, relatable protagonist, books, f f romance, people figuring out they re queer, adorableness, tension, enemies to lovers, happy ending, and it s just so fun to read It is of course kind of reminiscent of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, both being modern retellings of PP, but it is so different that I can t imagine Ashley Clements as this story s Lizzy The plot points that are [...]

    20. 3.5 5 starsThe beginning wasn t great to be honest The writing made me feel like I was watching a child drama But once the plot developed I ended up really enjoying my time reading this Lizzy such a good character to read from and she had realistic reactions that really made me love her character and get a feel for the situations Darcy, though annoying at first, ended up being one of my favourite characters which worked ad this was a Pride and Prejudice retelling The book date was so pure and pr [...]
