Review: A Date with Darcy - Tiffany Schmidt

A Date with Darcy (Bookish Boyfriends, #1)

Review: A Date With Darcy - Book #1 Bookish Boyfriends - Tiffany Schmidt - May 2018

I have always loved books with a take on the classics like Austen, Shakespeare's, Brontë’s, and Louisa May Alcott's. So, when I saw this cutesy YA read "A Date with Darcy" I knew I had to give it a go and read it. I liked this YA read as it had a magical spark to the book that reminded me of Cara Lockwood's Bard High series. In A Date with Darcy, we meet Merrilee and her best friend Eliza. They have recently transferred to a new private school. For Eliza, her parents are happy as they are famous scientists but for Merrilee, she loves the literary side and the English syllabus. Her English teacher takes teaching and reflection to the next level as she has her students writing as they read. Merilee's English teacher talks about how they are living their versions of the classics and how they can be related to life in today's world. The first book that gets read in class is Romeo and Juliet and Merrilee will be caught up in her own Romeo and Juliet tale with school hottie Monroe as she discovers his father is her sister's MIL opponent for the Senator seat - thus warring families. The relationship is also very intense and moves very quickly. The second half of the book is the reading of Pride and Prejudice where she discovers that maybe Monroe was her Wickham and that the boy, she hates with a passion who always seems to rile her up - the headmaster’s son might be her Mr. Darcy.  If you love Literary classics that are given a 21st-century spin then check out the Bookish Boyfriends series by Tiffany Schmidt. It also features diversity, different personalities, and LGBT+ strands.
