I enjoyed the Crazy Rich Asians movie and because of that I used some of my Cinemark Connections points to get the Movie Tie-In edition of the book (of course I’m adding it to my TBR list), I think the cover is beautiful and that’s why I’m sharing this pic.
What Movie Tie-In editions have you read lately and loved?
OMG!!!!! I’m so excited about this movie!!
This is another book I plan to read before watching the movie.

Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Format: Kindle and Audiobook
Rating: 5 of 5.
One of my Favorite Quotes: “How pleasant it is to spend an evening in this way! I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
This book is a Classic and a most read, I found the narration by Rosamund Pike very engaging and I especially enjoyed it in the parts of Mr. Collins, Mrs. Bennet and Jane Bennet.
While listening the Audiobook I couldn’t help compare the book with the 2005 Movie adaptation (the one starring Keira Knightley), and to be honest even when I think the character of Lizzy is really well written, she wasn’t my favorite. There are some things that I found myself questioning about Lizzy after finishing the book (particularly some of her attitudes towards people like Darcy and even sometimes her friend Charlotte).
Overall I enjoyed this book a lot, I love how Jane Austen portrayed the characters and I would recommend it (specially this Audiobook version).
I have a big collection of Kindle books and I’m always looking for good offers on the Audiobook version (so I can I switch between reading and listening to the book).
Yesterday I found in Audible a version of Pride and Prejudice narrated by Rosamund Pike, currently I’m on chapter 7 and loving it.
Originally, Pride and Prejudice wasn’t included on my Reading Challenge, but I decided to make it part of the Book List.
Here’s a video from Audible about this Audiobook:
Enjoy your saturday!
