"There is a great deal that goes into making a video blog. Lizzie Bennet should know, having become a YouTube sensation over the course of her year-long video diary project. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries chronicled Lizzie's life as a twenty-four-year-old grad student, struggling under a mountain of student loans and living at home with her two sisters--beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia. What may have started as her grad student thesis grew into so much more, as the videos came to inform and reflect her life and that of her sisters. When rich, 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. Suddenly Lizzie--who always considered herself a fairly normal young woman--was a public figure. But not everything happened on-screen. Luckily for us, Lizzie kept a secret diary. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet provides more character introspection as only a book can, with revelatory details about the Bennet household, including Lizzie's special relationship with her father, untold stories from Netherfield, Lizzie's thoughts and fears about life after grad school and becoming an instant web celebrity" -- from publisher's web site.

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
