Based on the Emmy Award-winning YouTube series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries .

Twenty‑four‑year‑old grad student Lizzie Bennet is saddled with student loan debt and still living at home along with her two sisters--beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia. When she records her reflections on life for her thesis project and posts them on YouTube, she has no idea The Lizzie Bennet Diaries will soon take on a life of their own, turning the Bennet sisters into internet celebrities seemingly overnight.

When rich and handsome Bing Lee comes to town, along with his stuck‑up friend William Darcy, things really start to get interesting for the Bennets--and for Lizzie's viewers. But not everything happens on‑screen. Lucky for us, Lizzie has a secret diary.

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet takes readers deep inside Lizzie's world and well beyond the confines of her camera--from the wedding where she first meets William Darcy to the local hangout of Carter's bar, and much more. Lizzie's private musings are filled with revealing details about the Bennet household, including her growing suspicions about her parents' unstable financial situation, her sister's budding relationship with Bing Lee, the perils of her unexpected fame, and her uncertainty over her future--and whom she wants to share it with.

Featuring plenty of fresh twists to delight fans and new readers alike, The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet expands on the web series phenomenon that captivated a generation and reimagines the Pride and Prejudice story like never before.

Companion to YouTube hit Lizzie Bennet Diaries!

I had never heard of this YouTube series before until I started reading this book and I am glad that I found both. I have been a fan of Jane Austen especially of Pride and Prejudice so this just fueled the fire of a book that I love. The YouTube series is great, but the book provides much more background then the videos which I like. Reading and watching the series at the same time, sure there was overlap but it did not bother me at all, I just thought double the fun. This is a great book, I recommend it and the YouTube series for anyone looking for something fun and light that follows the beloved Pride and Prejudice storyline with a modern twist.

I was so excited to read this because I adored The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I didn't really know what to expect with this book, though.
Basically it follows the plot and points of LBD but adds little things that isn't mentioned on the show and they're great to read. Especially in the second half of the book when the romance with Darcy kicks in, as that's what I was pretty much only reading for. :P
The bad part about the book is that it's not a new story. It follows the episodes totally and at times when there isn't anything new it can seem dry and repetitive.
But overall, it's a great read for any fans of LBD and I liked it a lot. :D
