The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is Going to be a Novel

Today has been a great day for Lizzie Bennet Diaries fans here at LeakyCon, and a full recap wil be coming later. But the biggest news so far was announced by Bernie Su at the Lizzie Bennet Diaries Extravaganza just minutes ago. A novelization of the web series will be published by Touchstone Books and is slated for release in the spring or summer of 2014.

According to Bernie Su, “what you’re going to ideally see, or read, will be what’s kind of around the vlogs; it will be a companion to what’s already there and will be about what she already talks about in the vlogs.”

Sounds amazing. Obviously, this is breaking news, so we don’t have any more details yet, but we will try to get them as soon as possible.

    Isn’t this just pride and prejudice then?

      no. Did you even watch the web series? Lizzie Bennet is to pride and prejudice as you are to your parents. There are lots of similarities but in general it’s very different.

      I’d agree that they’re two different stories, rather like West Side Story is both an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, and it’s own entity. Bridget Jones’ Diary is an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that started as a book and then was adapted into a movie. This new novel is an adaptation of Pride and Prejudice that started as a webseries and is now going to be a novel. Not much difference, really.
