    So here's the thing. I was so so excited about PRIDE. I loved the idea of this modernized retelling (I love the idea of any retelling, really, they just so rarely live up to the hype), I loved that this was an #ownvoices story, and also hello look at that amazing cover, I loved that, t...

    More reviews up on my blog Inside My Library Mind As a retelling... I loved that this was a diverse retelling of Pride and Prejudice. And in my opinion, Zoboi picked the perfect setting to retell this story. The Bennets become the Benitezes, who host block parties and have a ...

    Honest chat. I've never read Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". Did I lose my writing and reading credentials? Do I stand to continue my bookworm status? No. Good. I've survived over forty years of not reading the story nor watching a film adaptation while thriving on pop-cu...

    DNF at 22% I think I'm being over critical here. But honestly, I really wished Zuri would have just gotten off her high horse. She never gave the Darcy?s a chance and to be honest it's all because they don?t look or act like boys where she?s from. Which brings me to my main...

    Yeah, definitely place this on your list. Mini review: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bn1ILtwlN... ...

    I so wanted to like this but...man. The writing here simply doesn?t work. I would have loved for this to be a cool take on class, culture, and prejudice, but the quality of the writing distracted a lot from the themes. Here, take a look: ?No they?re not! Those boys look like...

    I initially went four stars, but after writing the review I can?t see any reason to withhold the fifth star. A pleasant book and a story that will transport you back to your teen years. She has really captured the authentic feel of those teenage worries, the angst around boys, the fa...

    I liked seeing familiar elements from the original P&P story serving as the framework for this modern, multicultural YA tale, and that?s definitely the charming part of this tale to me ? the author?s fresh take on the characters, in particular. But I wasn?t quite as investe...

    i need this in my life ...

    3.5 stars - It was really good. Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books, so I always love to read an author?s take on a retelling. Zoboi easily has the most original and fresh version that I have read thus far. Things still were far from perfection however. The...

    I received a copy via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I am so disappointed. I was so excited to read an adaptation of one of my favourite classics--especially one with Latinx characters because I'm Latina. Though my particular culture was not represented food-wise, I did...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Pride and Prejudice meet Brooklyn, Afro-Latino families, lots of comedy, romance and family in this modern retelling of the classic. I loved how multicultural the characters in Zoboi's book were, how Zuri was so he...

    CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT THIS COVER IT'S SO PRETTY I'M CRYING ...

    I must confess, I have never read Pride and Prejudice, but I have now read so many retellings, I feel quite familiar with the story, and I really enjoyed the way Zoboi took on Austen. I lived in East Flatbush, Brooklyn until I was almost 14, so I LOVE books set in my place of birth....

    I have always thought of Bushwick as home, but in that moment, I realize that home is where the people I love are, wherever that is. ???? (more like 4.5) Rep: black cast of characters, mc and her sisters are haitian-dominican; mc comes from a poor background. TW: racism ...

    4.25 If you know me at all then you know that Pride & Prejudice is one of my favorite books of all time. I?ve read several retellings of Pride & Prejudice and I have to say that Pride by Ibi Zoboi is now my favorite one. I had a smile on my face the entire time I was reading...

    Over the course of the years?-?decades even?-?there have been several retellings of Jane Austen's (arguably) most popular novel, "Pride and Prejudice" in film and a template for some novels. Rather than classifying these as the result of an unimaginative creative industry, I'm ...

    Pride is a stunning modernised remix of the classic Pride and Prejudice. Whether you've read Pride and Prejudice or not you will no doubt enjoy this cute, contemporary. I myself haven't read Pride and Prejudice in it's entirety but I do know the story well. And I have to say that I rea...

    random thoughts until I finish my review ?The world could fall apart around me, but we are still a family. It doesn?t matter where we go. Bushwick will come with us. Don?t let your pride get in the way of your heart, mija.? I?m stuck between giving this book 3.5 stars o...

    Always here for a good diverse retelling of pride and prejudice. ...

    Pride is a stunning modernised remix of the classic Pride and Prejudice. Whether you've read Pride and Prejudice or not you will no doubt enjoy this cute, contemporary. I myself haven't read Pride and Prejudice in it's entirety but I do know the story well. And I have to say that I rea...

    I must confess, I have never read Pride and Prejudice, but I have now read so many retellings, I feel quite familiar with the story, and I really enjoyed the way Zoboi took on Austen. I lived in East Flatbush, Brooklyn until I was almost 14, so I LOVE books set in my place of birth....

    Pride is a stunning modernised remix of the classic Pride and Prejudice. Whether you've read Pride and Prejudice or not you will no doubt enjoy this cute, contemporary. I myself haven't read Pride and Prejudice in it's entirety but I do know the story well. And I have to say that I rea...

    So here's the thing. I was so so excited about PRIDE. I loved the idea of this modernized retelling (I love the idea of any retelling, really, they just so rarely live up to the hype), I loved that this was an #ownvoices story, and also hello look at that amazing cover, I loved that, t...

    3 1/2 stars It is a truth universally acknowledged that when someone adapts Pride and Prejudice, I will read the crap out of it?no matter how bad it is. Thankfully, this is pretty good, and what's more ? it even occasionally transcends the original. Zuri is proud to live with...

    More reviews up on my blog Inside My Library Mind As a retelling... I loved that this was a diverse retelling of Pride and Prejudice. And in my opinion, Zoboi picked the perfect setting to retell this story. The Bennets become the Benitezes, who host block parties and have a ...

    Honest chat. I've never read Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". Did I lose my writing and reading credentials? Do I stand to continue my bookworm status? No. Good. I've survived over forty years of not reading the story nor watching a film adaptation while thriving on pop-cu...

    DNF at 22% I think I'm being over critical here. But honestly, I really wished Zuri would have just gotten off her high horse. She never gave the Darcy?s a chance and to be honest it's all because they don?t look or act like boys where she?s from. Which brings me to my main...

    I so wanted to like this but...man. The writing here simply doesn?t work. I would have loved for this to be a cool take on class, culture, and prejudice, but the quality of the writing distracted a lot from the themes. Here, take a look: ?No they?re not! Those boys look like...

    I initially went four stars, but after writing the review I can?t see any reason to withhold the fifth star. A pleasant book and a story that will transport you back to your teen years. She has really captured the authentic feel of those teenage worries, the angst around boys, the fa...

    I liked seeing familiar elements from the original P&P story serving as the framework for this modern, multicultural YA tale, and that?s definitely the charming part of this tale to me ? the author?s fresh take on the characters, in particular. But I wasn?t quite as investe...

    3.5 stars - It was really good. Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books, so I always love to read an author?s take on a retelling. Zoboi easily has the most original and fresh version that I have read thus far. Things still were far from perfection however. The...

    I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Pride and Prejudice meet Brooklyn, Afro-Latino families, lots of comedy, romance and family in this modern retelling of the classic. I loved how multicultural the characters in Zoboi's book were, how Zuri was so he...
