    This was a super quick listen and it was really enjoyable too! I loved how it was a retelling, and a really thoughtful one at that. It wasn't just the story placed wherever, everything served a purpose and I loved that. This truly is a pride and prejudice remix that you should try out!...

    DNF at 22% I think I'm being over critical here. But honestly, I really wished Zuri would have just gotten off her high horse. She never gave the Darcy?s a chance and to be honest it's all because they don?t look or act like boys where she?s from. Which brings me to my main...

    It's a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood, where it's a little bit broken and a little bit forgotten, the first thing they want to do is clean it up. 3 stars. This was so much better than I was expecting, honestly. Pride and Prejudice is ful...

    This was a super quick listen and it was really enjoyable too! I loved how it was a retelling, and a really thoughtful one at that. It wasn't just the story placed wherever, everything served a purpose and I loved that. This truly is a pride and prejudice remix that you should try out!...

    So here's the thing. I was so so excited about PRIDE. I loved the idea of this modernized retelling (I love the idea of any retelling, really, they just so rarely live up to the hype), I loved that this was an #ownvoices story, and also hello look at that amazing cover, I loved that, t...

    I don't feel like it's fair of me to rate this book. I don't even know why the hell I wanted to read this.... I HATE LOVE STORIES lmao. So uh I'm pretty sure this is good if you're into that. I'm not, so I did not have a good time lmao ...

    I wanted to like this because I love the idea of a fresh, modern take on Pride & Prejudice, especially one that incorporates diversity. But the story fell flat in many ways: the writing told instead of showed, the pacing was too fast and missed all the important beats of the origin...

    DNF at 22% I think I'm being over critical here. But honestly, I really wished Zuri would have just gotten off her high horse. She never gave the Darcy?s a chance and to be honest it's all because they don?t look or act like boys where she?s from. Which brings me to my main...
