The Whimsical Silly Girl in me: 5 out of 5
Overall Rating?? 3 out of 5
Well, this post is going to be fairly short and sweet because there isn’t a whole lot to say about it except…OMG is correct!! HA HA HA! I don’t even know what to say about this one. I’ve been trying to be good and not post reviews on my JAFF (Jane Austen Fan Fiction) But,with this one I COULDN’T HELP MYSELF!!
Pride and Prejudice told entirely through social media and emojis…. being a Noob in the social media world I actually had to highlight some of the acronyms to look up what they meant!!
Don’t hate me for not understanding these… and try not to laugh when I tell you what I had to look up.. But, for all of those out there who are NOT down/up?? with all the Terms:
SMH: Shaking My Head
TBT: Throwback Thursday
IMHO: In My Humble Opinion
OTP: One True Pairing
NTM: Not Too Much
And for those of you who decide to check out this book THERE’S A LEGEND AT THE BACK THAT TELLS YOU WHAT ALL THE TERMS MEAN!!! THAT would have been nice to know when I was Google searching all of these terms! Lol!!
For a taste of how the book reads.. here you go!
“From: Jane Bennet To: Lizzy Bennet
Subject: Lonely in London Lizzy!
It’s been 4 weeks and I still haven’t run into Bingley. 😣His sister waited 2 weeks(!) to say hi. 😳When she did come over, she was so incredibly rude. I don’t want 2 b friends 👭 w/ her anymore. Maybe she’s protective of Bingley?? But that doesn’t make sense bc he’s completely ghosted 👻me anyway. No📱 , no 📩, no✉ . Nothing. 😳💔Caroline even said he knew I was here. Maybe I’ll never find 💓. Time to start collecting 🐱s! Hope things are better on your end. xox Jane”
I thought this book was very humorous and really well done just because of the characters and how I could TOTALLY see them on social media!!
Mrs. Bennet: Mrs. Bennet took a quiz. Using one emoji, describe your daughters.

But, then seeing Darcy calling Elizabeth Lizzie and using things like #SorryNotSorry had my Jane Austen fangirl heart breaking… Lol! It was definitely one of those books that I’m happy I read, but it also hurt to read it!!
Darcy Swipes Left is Best Served With
Emoji Beer….ok, Fuller’s London Pride
So, I wanted to cheers the beer like my FAVOURITE emoji!! 🍻🍻🍻🍻And Fuller’s LONDON PRIDE?? Come On! “London”?? “PRIDE”?? Get it?? *wink wink* *nudge nudge* Ok…well, I thought it was funny. Lol!!
