For #boookstagramchallenge16 Ghouls just want to have fun-Chick Lit, one of my favorite Chick Lit books is Pride, Prejudice, and Jasmin Fields by Melissa Nathan. It’s been a while since I’ve talked about this book and I thought it was a perfect time to bring it up again. As the title implies, it is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice (which is my all time favorite book!). .
Here’s the Goodreads summary:
It starts as a lark for Jasmin Field, the charming, acerbically witty columnist for a national women’s magazine. She joins a host of celebraties gathering in London to audition for the season’s most dazzling charity event: a one-night only stage production of Jane Austen’s immortal Pride and Prejudice, directed by and starring the Academy Award — winning Hollywood heartthrob Harry Noble. And nobody is more surprised than Jasmin herself when she lands the lead of handsome Harry’s love interest, Elizabeth Bennet. But things start to go very wrong very quickly. Ms. Field’s delicious contempt for the arrogant, overbearing Harry Noble goes from being wicked fun to infuriating. Her brief moment of theatrical glory looks as if it’s going to be overshadowed by the betrayal of her best friend, the disintegration of her family and the implosion of her career. And suddenly she can’t remember a single one of her lines. But, worst of all, Harry Noble — who, incidentally, looks amazing in tight breeches — has started to stare hard at Jazz with that sort of a glimmer in his eyes…
If you haven’t read any Chick Lit books before, this would be a great book to get your feet wet, so to speak, into the genre. Also, if you love the troupe when the main characters hate each other at first, you’ll enjoy this.
