    1 thought on “The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet

    1. I'm a huge fan of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Lydia was definitely a favorite character. I'm not sure how much I would've liked this book if I hadn't seen the show or read the other book first, so maybe check those out if you like Pride & Prejudice retellings!I didn't realize this book picks up after the events in the first book & YouTube series are over. So Jane is with Bing, Lizzie is with Darcy, and the whole fiasco with George Wickham already happened. This story is mostly Lydia re [...]

    2. A satisfying sequel-of-sorts to our favorite little sister :) When we leave off with Lydia, the whole debacle with George Wickham is over, Lydia is healing and thinking of majoring in Psychology.This is about Lydia figuring out herself and her future after the camera turns off for good. Lydia's voice comes through loud and clear it feels like she's pulling you into her confidence and sharing her story with you while you're hangin out on the couch. While she made some choices I wish she hadn't, I [...]

    3. Review originally posted on Mostly YA Lit:The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet is a love letter to fans of the wildly popular webseries, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. There's no other way to put it. In the Acknowledgments, the authors say that the book would not have existed if people hadn't voiced their love, affection, and concern for this version of Lydia Bennet. So it seems absolutely right that Lydia should finally get her own story via the voices of those who loved here this book, in, itself [...]

    4. 4 starsIn case you didn't get the memo, I adore The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. It's a fabulous modern day retelling of Pride & Prejudice in a webseries format, and now it's spawned TWO books to give even more depth to the story. The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet tells Lydia's story after the webseries ends and boy. It's a doozy. It's only right that Lydia, arguably the series' most complex character, gets the chance to shine in her own story. I loved it.This book is all about Lydia, so whether [...]

    5. Because another thing he has failed at doing is taking my identity, and taking my voice. Those are mine. And with them, I can always turn my failures into strengths.A satisfying follow-up to The Lizzie Bennet Diaries that finally gives the series' scene-stealing breakout character a chance to tell her own story - and continue it, on her terms. Lydia is a fun, clever, engaging first-person narrator: it's impossible not to root for her as she attempts to redefine herself, pursue meaningful new adv [...]

    6. Arc provided by Touchstone through NetgalleyI had a hard time with this book, and part of it was my fault.After all, this is Lydia's book. And Lydia is Lydia. Even in the aftermath of "Wickham's I wanna punch you in the nuts SOB" incident, she is still her same frustrating self piling mistakes after mistakes.The thing is, this contemporary version of Lydia is also extremely adorb.My biggest complaint about this story is that _for me_ it just felt as if it went on and on.It's a very emotional, in [...]

    7. I have been waiting a long time to be able to finish Lydia's story, so as soon as I received an ARC for this book, I couldn't wait to finally go on this last journey with Lydia. And it was a journey that did not disappoint. If you've felt like Lydia's story remained unfinished, if you've ever wished she could have made just one more video, this book is for you. Unlike the corresponding book previously released by Rorick and Su, telling the untold behind the scenes of Lizzie's story during her vl [...]

    8. I AM SO EXITED FOR THIS BOOK! I MEAN, EVERYONE IS!!!!But I have to wait 'till September?I can't wait to get more Lydia.

    9. I didn't know just how much I needed this book! I missed Lydia so much and this book made me so happy. It's so realistic and so Lydia! The ending made me really emotional, I just love her so much.

    10. Shut up, I’m not crying. There’s just a tree branch in my eye. That’s all. A tree branch named Lydia Bennet. The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet is not at all the book I expected it to be, which was disappointing at first, but Lydia’s book was ultimately much better for that. As much as I love all of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, my favorite thing is Lydia’s arc and the changes to her character. In The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet, she gets to develop even further, navigating those com [...]

    11. My favourite webseries ever, the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, has been finished for nearly two years at this point - last year saw the publication of The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, a companion book to the series, and now this novel has just been brought out - a sequel, of sorts. As the writers (the same who wrote episodes for the webseries) explained, Lydia was the only one who did not get a nicely tied up ending; all the other characters are clearly going to good places at the end of the series, [...]

    12. Thanks to Eidelweiss for the ARC.Like many people I fell in love with Mary-Kate Wiles's portrayal of Lydia Bennet in The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and so I was very happy to get my hands on this book because while Austen's Lydia Bennet is terrible this Lydia Bennet is delightful. This book starts off with Lydia's last summer at community college. She is working to take the last two summer classes she needs and there is a boy. Lydia learns a lot about herself. For those Mary fans there is also a lot [...]

    13. Wow, I thought this was a great book! I really enjoyed reading it. Once I got started it was hard for me to put the book down. I loved the continuation from the "Lizzie Bennet Diaries" and have it from Lydia's point of view. I thought the plot was really well written. I have always wonder what happened with Lydia after the whole thing with George. Now all we need is a stand alone novel of Jane and how things are going with her. I want to hear her point of view.

    14. Lydia Bennet became somewhat of an internet celebrity when her older sister Lizzie's vlogs, made as part of her graduate project, went viral in a major way. Always happy to be the centre of attention, Lydia made her own videos and loved the attention she got on YouTube, Twitter, Tumblr and other social media sites. Unfortunately, when she fell in love with and trusted a man who took terrible advantage of her, she also had to face her private life being open for all to see, and her name became sy [...]

    15. I absolutely loved where this story went, and I especially enjoyed Lydia's character development. This was such a wonderful addition to the Lizzie Bennet Diaries. Highly recommend the audio, which is narrated by Mary Kate Wiles!

    16. *I received this book in a giveaway in exchange for an honest review.*I was worried I wouldn't like this book. I have always has a special hatred for Lydia Bennet. As a semi-goody-two-shoes, I could never believe someone could be so thoughtless as to become an embarrassment and create so much trouble for their family. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries changed that for me. Lydia was still thoughtless, but she tried her hardest and was just attempting to make her own way. I still wasn't sure I would enjo [...]

    17. Official Rating: 3.5 starsIt's no secret to most people that I adored The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I was late on the train, but I watched the entire series in one day and have watched the entire thing multiple times since. I loved The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet and seeing as LBD gave my favorite portrayal of the historically super infuriating Lydia Bennet, I was excited to see what this book would hold.There were certain elements of the story I really liked -- seeing Lydia grow as a character ( [...]

    18. I have so much appreciation for this book. The end of Lydia's story in the webseries really left me wanting to know more. I don't think that there were loose ends, but I desperately wanted to know what she did afterwards. This book is incredible because it develops how she changed after what happened to her with Wickham and how her healing process developed and affected her decisions, goals, and personality. I loved seeing her change.And I just want to say that I totally called it that (view spo [...]

    20. Listened to this in one sitting. My ears feel like they're bleeding a bit but totally worth it! RTC :)

    21. Good story does weird thing to reader's mind. While I was kind of glad to reunite with Lizzie's Diary characters and for Lydia's chance to tell her story I went through many different emotions (stages of grieving?). It was so hard to stop reading. I felt like if I don't read I would like to call Lydia and ask how she's doing Or just kick her. I was so in conflict with my emotions, sometimes feeling empathy for her and sometimes not so much. and while reading/watching Lizzie Bennet Diary I wouldn [...]

    22. 3.5. I'm a huge fan of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and it was cool to take a journey of self-discovery with Lydia here. However, I did feel like it dragged at parts and I would love more Milo and Kat.

    23. One of the things I loved the most about The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is that it managed to take a character who we're supposed to dislike (Lydia Bennet) and let us see her transform. Because it was a modern day retelling, the creators couldn't just have Lydia run off with Wickham in order to ruin her life. Regardless of whether you approve of Lydia's choices or not, it wouldn't be a scandal in 2015.If you're not familiar with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (hereafter referred to as "the LBD"), I won't [...]

    24. Unlike The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet actually managed to add something fresh and new to the youtube adaption it was based on. It was a lot more enjoyable to read for me because it expands the story more, and shows a perspective that was a lot more interesting. Letting the reader see the story after the series, as well as seeing it from Lydia's perspective was a great move, and I would honestly recommend for fans of the show to skip the other book and go s [...]

    25. (I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)As a huge fan of  The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, I was so excited to get approved for this book.  Some companion novels don't work well, but The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet does.  It picks up where The Lizzie Bennet Diaries leaves off, and it's a very smooth transition. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modern retelling of Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, which just happens to be one of my favorite books.  A [...]

    26. Why I Read It: I randomly stumbled upon this and because of my love of Pride and Prejudice figured it would be right up my alley!Premise: This book is a sequel to the popular Lizzie Bennet Diaries YouTube series (which I have not watched). It's a modern re-telling of Pride and Prejudice and this book is about Lydia managing the consequences of her tryst with George. Lydia is taking summer courses to finish up at her local community college before heading off to university with cousin Mary. She's [...]

    27. "There's this weird thing that happens when everything falls apart. It's happened to me before, so I know. Your body, the normal one you live in every day, sort of starts to exist apart from you. You're still there of course. Still hanging out. But it all goes on autopilot, getting you through the days while yountract." When I started reading The Epic Adventures of Lydia Bennet, the thought that I might like it more than The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet hadn't even crossed my mind. But I did. M [...]
