A Christmas Carol, one of the holiday’s greatest traditions told . . . in texts?!
Imagine: What if Scrooge, Marley, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, and the whole Cratchit family had smartphones? A classic is reborn in this clever adaptation of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol!
One grouchy old man who can’t stop asking “How did you get this number?!”
Three ghosts who communicate in the most modern ways, including one who ONLY uses emojis!
And a status update with the most “likes” ever: God bless us, everyone!
This retelling will cure even the worst bout of Bah hummingbird! #darnyouautocorrect
A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it.
Darcy Swipes Left
Pride and Prejudice, one of the greatest love stories ever told . . . in texts?!
Imagine: What if Lizzy Bennet and Mr. Darcy had smartphones and dated IRL (in real life)? A classic is reborn in this clever adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice!
A truth universally acknowledged: a rich guy must want a wife.
A terrible first impression.
A couple that’s meant to be . . . if they can just get over themselves. #hatersgonnadate
Don’t miss: Lydia taking selfies with soldiers, Mrs. Bennet’s humble-brag status updates, Lizzy texting from her long walks, and Darcy swiping left on a dance card app.
tl;dr Jane Austen’s most famous novel told through its characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for any teen (or any reader with a sense of humor)!
A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: tl;dr means too long; didn’t read.
I adore these books and honestly cannot get enough of them! I have reviewed a few of them before so when I was contacted about the latest editions to the series, I could not resist! The covers are so much fun and it does not even compete with what is inside the covers! If you are not aware, this series tells classic stories that we all know and love in a completely different way…..THE WHOLE BOOK IS WRITTEN ENTIRELY IN EMOJIS & TEXT MESSAGE!! 🙂
Scrooge #WorstGiftEver: Who doesn’t love this classic tale of scrooge and Tiny Tim? The storyline is exactly the same with a few little extra’s added in here and there to add some humor to the story. Mr Scrooge is very interesting with a cell phone! LOL Otherwise, the storyline pretty much stays the same and is just as enjoyable as the original! One of my favorite Christmas stories ever!
Darcy Swipes Left: If you are familiar with the story of Pride & Prejudice then you will love this book! I have never read the original but I instantly fell in love with this modern day retelling. It was humorous in the fact that they spoke completely in text message! Just imagine being at a dance and staring down at your phone the whole time! (which I am sure happens often at middle school dances) The whole story concentrated on the romance between Darcy and Elizabeth, which is okay in my book but I am curious to get the whole story and maybe even pick up the classic!
