Have you ever been reading a book, and you were enjoying it, but just needed a break? Right now, I’m in the middle of “A House Divided”, the 3rd book in the “Good Earth” trilogy. I’m enjoying the book, but let’s face it, sometimes Pearl S. Buck can be a little ‘heavy’.
So, I needed a quick, ‘fluffy’ read as a break from the Buck. (Does that sound as funny as I think it does?)
“Prom & Prejudice” by Elizabeth Eulberg fit the bill perfectly. As the title suggests, this is a retelling of Jane Austen’s classic “Pride and Prejudice”, but with a modernised prep school twist.
Lizzie Bennet is a scholarship (read not wealthy) student at Longbourn Academy. Her best friend, Jane, is crushing on Charles Bingley (an A-lister at nearby Pemberley Academy), and of course Jane invites Lizzie along for the ride, where she meets Charles’ friend Will Darcy, who for all appearances, has decided that all scholarship students are scum. Humour ensues, yadda yadda yadda . . .
Since I’m very familiar with the “Pride and Prejudice” storyline, this was a quick, easy and delightful read . . . the perfect KitKat break! 😉
