Book Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

In which I review a fab book.

Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

You watched the vlogs, kept up with the tweets and repinned Jane’s adorbs clothes, but that’s still not enough. The fantastic creators of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (LBD) have come up with yet another way to tell this story.

  1. Work – I know I’m just an acting editor, but dear-baby-raptor-Jesus there’s so much to learn and work on.
  2. Dance – I’m actually glad I have dance because it’s regular physical activity that I would not be partaking in otherwise.
  3. Getting it on – I said it. I went there. After a years-long dry spell I have something going on and it takes time out of my week to maintain that relationship (of sorts).
  4. Chores – My gma pretty much leaves all major cleaning to me. I just got over the Flu and the kitchen floor looks like the grossest bathroom in Scotland, if you take my meaning.
  5. Sleep – When I get off work I don’t want to spend my hour+ commute reading (especially since I most likely spent hours doing that), so I veg out to podcasts and music. When I get home I have to clean up other people’s junk, then I have dinner and try to catch up on my Netflix queue like any modern woman. But I mostly just curl into bed and hope my insomnia abates.
