This weeks teaser is from Darcy Swipes Left by Courtney Carbone

Title: Darcy Swipes Left
Author: by Courtney Carbone (Adaptor)Jane Austen

Published: September 27th 2016

My Teaser:

‘Sry I’m not the best conversationalist’

‘Just bc you’re not the best @ something doesn’t mean you avoid it completely. sometimes you just have to practise the things that intimidate u.’



Goodreads Synopsis:

Pride and Prejudice, one of the greatest love stories ever told . . . in texts?!
Imagine: What if Lizzy Bennet and Mr. Darcy had smartphones and dated IRL (in real life)? A classic is reborn in this clever adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice!

A truth universally acknowledged: a rich guy must want a wife.
A terrible first impression.
A couple that’s meant to be . . . if they can just get over themselves. #hatersgonnadate

Don’t miss: Lydia taking selfies with soldiers, Mrs. Bennet’s humble-brag status updates, Lizzy texting from her long walks, and Darcy swiping left on a dance card app.
tl;dr Jane Austen’s most famous novel told through its characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for any teen (or any reader with a sense of humor)!

A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: tl;dr means too long; didn’t read.


Uhh, I really just had too!
Has anyone read this? Thoughts?

I feel like I might have to throw my iPad if they keep abbreviating some words sporadically.
**see above teaser. Abbreviated ‘u’ ONCE!! why not all the time!!!
Props for the hashtag #hatersgonnadate, killed me 😀

            1. Eugh! The way some people talk in text messages is the worst!! It will take you like 2 seconds longer to type out the whole word. It’s not like it’s back in the old school days where you only had the keypad and had to hit the button numerous times to get a letter lol.
