Blog Tour: My Own Mr. Darcy by Karey White (Review + Giveaway)

After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.
Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.

This book was so cute and sweet. I absolutely loved it to pieces. I knew I would, being a fan of Pride and Prejudice; loving and knowing the book/movie made it even better. I felt like I connected with the characters really easily. The romance was fantastic, and I found myself wanting more when I was finished reading. I’ve promoted books by Karey but have never read any of them. I’m definitely a fan now and will be picking up her other books soon! I’d highly recommend My Own Mr. Darcy to teen/adult readers, and even mature middle grade readers.

  1. Yay! I'm so glad you were able to read this one and I hope when you read my others, you enjoy them just as much. Thank you so much for taking the time to read My Own Mr. Darcy and write a review. I'm very grateful.

  2. That's a really pretty cover! I love the lighting of it. :) I haven't read many classics so I'm not sure if this is something I'd like to read or not. Also, it looks like we're both kind of getting back into blogging again. :) I know you are probably busy with college, but I thought I'd tag you in a book tag in case it was something fun that you'd like to do as well. :)
