Darcy Swipes Left
Darcy Swipes Left | Jane Austen, Courtney Carbone
38 posts | 18 read | 45 to read
"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."

THANK YOU @DinoMom for ALL these bookish goodies! You spoiled me so 🥰

The pirate stories all look arrr-mazing; I can‘t wait to read them! I took the Hello Autumn frame to work. And the warm soup and hot chocolate will be delicious.

Your business of sticker wax seals are so cool! They‘ll make my envelopes pretty!

And, though, I have Darcy Swipes Left already in the collection, I‘m swiping right on everything else!

CrowCAH @Libby1 that even sounds interesting! Thanks for the rec! 2mo

CrowCAH @DinoMom yes, thanks a bunch! 😊 No worries, I love spreading the P&P love! This even may spur me to actually read it; it looks super cute told in text and emojis! 2mo

Thanks so much for the recommendation @sprainedbrain — omg this is hilarious and well-worth the read if you‘re a P&P fan. I definitely LOL‘d multiple times, I‘ll show you the one that for some reason I found hilarious! This is great for cozy times when you would love to read P&P in an hour or less. Highly recommended! 5⭐️

Omg this one was a WIN!!! 👏😍🎉 A quick fun modernized version of the classic story!! With a fresh social media twist! I can‘t believe how well it fit the story. The entertainment factor on this was brilliant and I laughed out loud a lot. I will probably end up buying a copy of this for my collection 😉

HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain I added this one after your review and man it was hilarious!! I loved Darcy‘s character (as always!) and when Lizzy told lady Catherine “bye Felicia” omg CLASSIC!! 🤣 how long have we all been wanting to say that to her!! 😀 btw do you have any recommendations for P&P continuations? I want to read some Lizzy and Darcy married life ones! 😎 (edited) 2y
sprainedbrain It‘s so funny! I was rolling at Lady Catherine signing her messages, and then when Lizzie did it, too. And Mr. Collins. 😂 2y
sprainedbrain As for continuations, I really haven‘t read many and would love to find some good ones. I read Death Comes to Pemberley, but it was just a so-so. I did like The Clergyman‘s Wife (thanks to your rec), but as you know, not lots of the Darcy‘s there. I found this list and might try some of them: https://bookriot.com/2018/04/21/pride-and-prejudice-sequels/. Have you read any of those? 2y
See All 11 Comments
HOTPock3tt Lady Catherine was like “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!”😡And Lizzy was like “yeah you keep signing all your text messages” 🙄Lmfao!! 😂 @sprainedbrain and thanks for the list!! 😃♥️ I haven‘t read any of those and have only heard of 2 of them!! Last summer, I started reading “Mr Darcy Takes A Wife” and it was sexy!! 😃 but I got hung up on a slow part (with different characters) and never finished it 😖 (edited) 2y
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt hmmm. I might try Mr. Darcy takes a wife. 😂 2y
HOTPock3tt @sprainedbrain there were some real 🔥 🔥 🔥 scenes in there, I‘m telling you! 😍🙌🏽 2y
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt That would be why I would try it, probably. I think I‘ve seen some bad reviews for that one, and if my #booksister couldn‘t finish it, chances are I won‘t like it either. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
HOTPock3tt I enjoyed the hot scenes! 😎 but there were new characters in some parts with SLANG that was so REGIONAL and so old I couldn‘t manage to plow through it (that‘s where I got stuck 😕) and the language throughout the book was very archaic 🙁 Jane Austen‘s books are not difficult to read... but in Mr Darcy Takes A Wife the author used such archaic language I had to keep looking up words so it was hard to just flow with the story.😪 @sprainedbrain (edited) 2y
HOTPock3tt Not just that... the new characters were boring @sprainedbrain *Sigh* if only she could‘ve just continued with the hot scenes lol 🤣 2y
sprainedbrain @HOTPock3tt that‘s an odd choice... as you say, Austen‘s books are easy to read so not sure why anyone would want to make the language for a sequel more difficult. Especially if you‘re taking it way trashier than Jane ever got. 😂 2y
HOTPock3tt I know right? If it‘s trashier we should be able to just turn our brains off and enjoy!! 😎 not have to get a dictionary out lol @sprainedbrain 2y

@sprainedbrain posted about this book maybe a week ago and I just had to check it out. It was hilarious! Pride & Prejudice mixed with the smartphone culture of today makes for some silly reading. As always, Mr. Collins does not disappoint! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂📱

My younger sister found this meme where someone compared Pride and Prejudice to Star Wars, specifically Rey and Kylo Ren to Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Love it!

It‘s P&P, but in space!

Lunch is Sunday's soup leftovers & this fun but fairly silly seeming book I got on sale + coupon & a gift card with other P&P things that arrived when I was in the hospital that I'll show later. Still working back into normal life, & reading & Litsy. Yesterday was follow up appointments much of the day, today I made a solo pharmacy & grocery store run, 😀👍tomorrow's an early follow up with the lung doctor...trying to rest & fit work in-between.😬
