LBDBookSmallLizzie Bennet is back as The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet hits bookshelves and e-readers starting today.

Written by Bernie Su, the series’ executive producer, co-creator, head writer, and director, along with Kate Rorick, the novelist, TV writer, and consulting producer on the series, this highly anticipated novel is a modern adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice based on the Emmy Award-winning phenomenon, “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.”

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet takes readers deep inside Lizzie’s world and well beyond the confines of her camera, revealing aspects of her life that could not be portrayed in a web series and updating more of the source material for a modern audience.

It is available as an audiobook narrated by Ashley Clements, giving our talented and award-winning lead actor the chance to portray every character in the series.

In honor of the book’s release, Lizzie Bennet also returned to YouTube to film two bonus videos, updating her viewers about her family and her relationship with William Darcy.

Praise is already coming in from readers and reviewers alike, with Publishers Weekly calling the book “fantastic… This book hits all the high points of Austen’s most famous novel in satisfying ways (Darcy’s confession, Lydia’s bad choices), while updating it for the digital age. Though the videos are the catalyst for the novel, readers need not have viewed them to enjoy this story. Fans of the web series and newcomers alike will be satisfied.”

The Washington Post adds that the Secret Diary “offers a fresh take on Pride and Prejudice—without ruining it…. [Lizzie’s] voice is reminiscent of the sort of wry sarcasm that made Daria so appealing.”
