Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg Review + Contest

Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
"Lizzie Bennet, who attends Longbourn Academy on scholarship, isn't exactly interested in designer dresses and expensive shoes, but her best friend, Jane, might be—especially now that Charles Bingley is back from a semester in London. Lizzie is happy about her friend's burgeoning romance, but less than impressed by Will Darcy, a pompous jerk who looks down on the middle class. So imagine Lizzie's surprise when Will asks her to the prom! Will Lizzie's pride and Will's prejudice keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making?"- summary from Big Honcho Media

I really enjoyed this book. It was a nice, fun read and a good update on Pride and Prejudice. I liked seeing the connections between the two and the characters in this new setting.

I couldn't put this book down. I literally curled up on my couch and read the book in several hours. It was a nice way to spend an afternoon. I liked Lizzie's voice and the situations she's put in. I enjoyed seeing the romance between her and Darcy, of course; I do like seeing two characters who originally hate each other learn to love each other.

Overall, this is a fun, sweet book. I'm not sure if it's worth the hardcover price (maybe at a discount), but it is a book to check out, however you get to it (except illegally downloading it- don't do that). Get to it via a paying method, or through the library.

  1. I also liked this book. I agree that the hardcover price is a bit much though.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I've been meaning to read this book for a while and I'm glad you like it!

  3. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I'm always a bit wary of updates, but this one seems like it's actually good! (Plus, I totally agree with you about loving to watch characters who hate each other grow to like each other. Hehe!)

    Thanks for the review! :)

  4. Maybe there should be a duel of the P&P books, like this one and Prada and Prejudice. :)

    Sounds pretty cute, I like the book trailer too.

  5. Interested about this one. Thanks for the review.

  6. Oooh, this sounds like a really sweet read, I love the film Pride & Prejudice but can you believe I have never read a Jane Austen book! I borrowed Northanger Abbey from the library and couldn't follow all the old language (how embarassing!) I like to read historical fiction thats out now like The Luxe!

  7. This does sound like a really cute book. Thanks so much for the review and the giveaway!

    I'm used to it so it's okay.

    But it does sound super cute :D

  11. So I have seen this book and am really interested in reading.....Thanks for the review!

  12. I adored this book. I loved seeing how P&P worked in the modern world. The best way to describe the book is "cute," which may turn off some fans but it was just what I wanted.

  13. I'm so, so excited about this book! P&P is, of course, one of my favorites and I really enjoy Eulberg's writing, so I'm pretty positive I'm going to love this book as well!
