First Some Fiction

I like books a lot - not so surprising, anyone on BookLikes probably does. Since book blogs helped me a great deal (what to read, what's new, what books can be recommended if you like reading about a particular subject etc.) I decided to start one myself. On First Some Fiction you'll find reviews as well as recommendations and other bookish stuff for lots of different genres because even though I have my preferences I tend to pick up "the occasional random book" that turns out to be surprisingly good...cue a post!

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (Not A Book! Well, not originally, I think they made a book of it later...)

Just an update on what I've been doing lately, since I wasn't reading...woah, that sounds crazy huh? Well,

Lizzie Bennet Regrets Nothing

That's right! You might wonder now what I've been doing instead. Don't worry: this post is all about informing you exactly of what! For those of you who recognised the gif, YES INDEED I'VE BEEN WATCHING THE LBD!

And of course, for those of you who have no idea what 'The LBD' is, I'll explain!

The LBD stands for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and simply takes less time to type. It's an awesome web series (which you can watch for free on youtube) based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice - the 'Lizzie Bennet' kind of gave that away, huh?
Anyway, I really, really, really enjoyed it because the actors are genius in their roles as Jane Austen's characters. Of course some things differ from the actual story, but that's what makes it fun and realistic for this time period! The plot is pretty much the same (we still have a marry-crazy mother, an energetic younger sister, a Wickham and a certain mister Darcy) but I love how they worked it out for this series! Also, the episodes are only 4/5 minutes long so you can watch one whenever you feel like it or have some spare time.
Interested? Here you go!

Oh by the way, Hank Green developed this (with Bernie Su) so if you didn't have enough reasons to give this a shot, now you do (;
