Don’t worry, the title of this post isn’t describing me. Still engaged 😉
Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld may be my favorite book this year. A modern Pride & Prejudice, which I obviously love (original book, movies, you name it). But this is not just a similar story. The characters are the same and have the same issues and personalities, but with a 21st century twist. Liz is a writer for a major magazine, Jane is a yoga instructor, and all the younger sisters still live at home mooching off their parents. The best part is that one of two main men, Chip Bingley, is a reality show star (Eligible = The Bachelor).
This was such an entertaining read. I’m not sure if it’s because I love the original story so much, but if you do, you’ll love this. If you’re not familiar with it, I’m not sure it’s as entertaining but I still think it would be! Enjoy this great end of summer read!
