January Book Review Club: Prada & Prejudice

Yay, 2010! Doesn’t feel amazing to begin a new year? I feel refreshed, refocused, and renewed.


The first Wednesday of the month means another edition of The Book Review Club hosted by Barrie Summy, author of the I So Don’t Do Mysteries series. Today, I’m featuring the fabulousMandy Hubbard’s Prada & Prejudice. Mandy is amazing and so is her debut.


Here’s a quick synopsis – During a school trip to England, Callie straps on her brand new Prada heels (attempting to impress the popular girls), trips, and is transformed to Nineteenth Century England.

Five Reasons Why I Enjoyed Prada & Prejudice:

  1. Loved spunky, clumsy, Callie
  2. Energetic and fast-paced
  3. Unique time-travel adventure
  4. Sweet and fun romance
  5. Hubbard kept me guessing


Prada & Prejudice was a blast and exactly the escape I needed to end the holiday season.


Check out the rest of the fabulous Book Club reviews here.


Happy Wednesday!


Disclosure: I often receive ARCs and/or books for reviews (most of the time due to my Chick Lit column for South Jersey Mom magazine and sometimes because I’m an author and other times because I beg). However, I do not blog about every book I receive, only the ones I absolutely adore or feel the need to recommend to fans of sporty lit.

Sarah Laurence said...

The title is funny, and it sounds like a quirky premise for a novel. My daughter is reading Pride and Prejudice now for fun.

It’s nice to have you back to blogging and good to hear that you are refreshed. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Keri! How I would love to strap on a pair of shoes and be whisked off on an adventure. Best wishes to Mandy on her debut!

Alyssa Goodnight said...

I've had my eye on this one--sounds fun! Thanks for the review!

Kelly said...

I enjoyed the book too. I agree with you, it was fast paced and I kept wondering...how is she going to end this??? I even read Pride and Prejudice before reading this for prep in case of any parallels! (Can you believe I'd never read it before?!)

Lisa and Laura said...

I've heard a lot about this book. Will definitely pick it up!

Keri Mikulski said...

Can I come with you, Barrie? :)

You're welcome, Alyssa! Enjoy!

Hi, Kelly! Me too.. Mandy pulled off a great ending too. :)

Enjoy, Laura and Lisa! :)

The title alone makes me want to read it! :-)

Sarahlynn said...

The title initially made me wary - I've read some YA that's all about brand names, all the time - but after reading your review I think this one's definitely worth a try. Thanks!
