The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

Title: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet
Author: Bernie Su, Kate Rorick
Genre: Contemporary, Young Adult, Romance, Comedy
Published: June 2014

My Rating: 5/5


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.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon


Title: Outlander (Outlander #1)
Author: Diana Gabaldon
Genre: Historical Fiction, Romance, Fantasy, Time Travel
Published: January 1991

My Rating: 5/5


The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Gametalk: Atelier Rorona


This is a game I played some time ago and just recently I finished Atelier Meruru, the third game in the Arland series, and I loved both of them much that I decided to talk about them, starting with the first one, of course.

The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey, #3)Title: The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey #3)
Author: Julie Kagawa
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Romance, Adventure
Published: January 2011

My Rating: 5/5


My name is Meghan Chase. I thought it was over. 

That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it. 

This time, there will be no turning back.
