Book Spotlight, Review and Giveaway: Pride and Prep School by Stephanie Wardrop


Title: Pride And Prep School (Snark And Circumstance #3)
Publication date: October 15, 2013
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Author: Stephanie Wardrop

Georgia can’t figure out why the burden of a Y chromosome seems to make guys so hard to understand. First, there’s the handsome but slippery Jeremy Wrentham. After Georgia shared some pretty devastating kisses with him, she found her way home and he found her sister!
And then there’s Michael Endicott, who never fails to let her know that her family’s quirkiness lies too far outside the pale for this preppie townie. But if he really feels that way, why is he in Georgia’s kitchen, asking her out? And why don’t boys come with instruction manuals?


Stephanie Wardrop grew up in Reading, Pennsylvania where she started writing stories when she ran out of books to read. She’s always wanted to be a writer, except during the brief period of her childhood in which piracy seemed like the most enticing career option—and if she had known then that there actually were “girl” pirates way back when, things might have turned out very differently. She currently teaches writing and literature at Western New England University  and lives in a town not unlike the setting of Snark and Circumstance with her husband, two kids, and five cats. With a book out—finally—she might be hitting the high seas any day now.

My Thoughts:

I love Jane Austen and adaptations of her work. Some are good and some...not so much. This book, for me, falls somewhere in the latter category. It seemed like it would be a good adaptation of Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but it didn't really work for me. The characters didn't really engage me, the story didn't really gel. Sor for me, this was not a good fit.
