I’m sure you’ve all heard of the youtube sensation Lizzie Bennet. You haven’t? Honestly, what are you doing with your lives?
The Lizzie Bennet Diaries are a contemporary retelling of….yes, you guessed it. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. But the awesome factor > they are vlogs made by Lizzie Bennet herself! They are hilarious and just the thing you need to relax.
So far there have only been 12 videos which means there is plenty of time for all of you to catch-up and become a part of the ever growing phenomenon. GET OUT FROM UNDER THAT ROCK, PEOPLE! ^_^
