Waiting on Wednesday (25)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on:

Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg
Publication date: January 1, 2011

Description from Goodreads:

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single guy in his spring semester at Pemberly Academy must be in want of a prom date. After winter break, the girls at very prestigious, very wealthy, girls-only Longbourn Academy are suddenly obsessed with the prom, which they share with the nearby, equally elitist, all-boys Pemberly school. Lizzie Bennett, who attends Longbourn on scholarship, isn't exactly interested in designer dresses and expensive shoes, but her best friend, Jane, might be - especially now that Charles Bingley is back from a semester in London. Lizzie is happy about her friend's burgeoning romance, but less than impressed by Will Darcy, Charles's friend, who's as snobby and pretentious as his friend is nice. He doesn't seem to like Lizzie either, but she assumes it's because her family doesn't have money. It doesn't help that Charles doesn't seem to be asking Jane to be his prom date, or that Lizzie meets George Wickham, who tells her that Will Darcy sabotaged his scholarship at Pemberly. Clearly Will Darcy is a pompous jerk who looks down on the middle class--so imagine Lizzie's surprise when he asks her to the prom! Will Lizzie's prejudice and Will's pride keep them apart? Or are they a prom couple in the making? From Elizabeth Eulberg comes a very funny, completely stylish prom-season delight of Jane Austen proportions.

I loved Elizabeth Eulberg's debut novel, The Lonely Hearts Club and I have a feeling I will enjoy this modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I enjoyed Lonely Hearts Club too and am really looking forward to this novel as well; in fact, I almost picked this one as my WoW! Great pick!

  2. This one sounds like fun! I haven't read this author before. Great pick!

  3. This one sounds like such a fun retelling, great choice! =)

  4. This sounds really fun! I'll definitely be looking to pick it up!

  5. Anything with "Prejudice", I must get it! It's an Austen fetish, but I love it! Great pick! =D
