Favorite Pride and Prejudice Spin Offs

In honor of the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies movie, I have decided to compile a few of my favorite P&P spin offs for you guys! Can we pause a moment and think about the fact that Matt Smith is playing Mr. Collins? Oh my gosh, that is perfection.

The Youtube Version (With Book Accompaniment)
- The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (find the videos here)
  with The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

The Young Adult Tales
- Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
- Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik
- Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard

The Film Variations:
- Bridget Jones's Diary
  with Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding

You may have noticed that I did not, in fact, have the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies book on this oh-so-short list. That is because I didn't actually like it that much. I found that it dragged on and on and it wouldn't end! Maybe it was because I was in a huge reading slump or because it seemed to be lacking in the zombie area- I love graphic zombie scenes, and this didn't fill that void- but it just didn't live up to its praise from others. I wanted to like it, I truly did! Although that's not to discount the movie, I've heard that it is amazing!!!

Au Revoir!
