Lizzie Bennet - Pride and Prejudice - Other News

If you haven't already heard of/become obsessed with the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, you can watch the first episode below. You should set aside at least 30 minutes to make an ample dent in the series, because you won't want to stop watching once you start. 

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
 It was created and executive produced by Hank Green and Bernie Su.

What that means is that this web series is bloody brilliant! I have not read Pride and Prejudice in years (if I ever did...did I?) but I can tell you just as Sherlock played by Benedict Cumberbatch made me want to pick up and read/reread Arthur Conan Doyle this series makes me desperate to squeeze in a read of this classic, and maybe other Austen works as well. So check it

In other news, Forever by Judy Blume is now available in ebook form! YAY! So if you haven't read it yet, now you have no excuse.

Beth Revis' Across the Universe series got a new makeover recently and if you haven't seen them yet...
now you have. I'm not sure if I love them or not. I'm pretty sure I do, except I really loved the first Across the Universe cover. These ones do look very nice, and I'm sure I will be rebuying the ones I have so that it looks all nicey-nice on my shelf. What you do guys think of the new covers?

Neil Gaiman just signed a multi-book deal with Harpercollins, so YAY!
I guess that's all the news I have to share with you guys for now, so if there are other exciting things happening, leave them in the comments :)


  1. I think I watched one episode, but I promise to make more time to watch the rest!

    And I'm not sure about the cover redesigns, I have ATU but haven't read it yet and I like the original cover but, the new covers might appeal more to more sci-fi fans rather than just YA readers?

  2. I love Lizzie Bennet Diaries :)

    And I have no idea how I missed the Gaiman news, so thank you so much for sharing :) I love everything from him :)


Hello readers! I love comments, so please feel free to leave them. I do comment back on every comment I get, though it may take me a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by!
