The Dr Pepper Prophecies By Jennifer Gilby Roberts

17924666

I just about died of laughter reading this book. Seriously, Melanie Parker is a riot and had me busting up laughing (while alone in the basement, so I looked like a crazy person–so worth it), and Will Knightley is entirely lovable. This book is a new, fresh, hilarious twist of a retelling of Jane Austen’s Emma. Need I say more? And it’s not one of those obvious retellings where you already know how everything is going to happen and you’re just waiting to get through to the end. Oh, and there is an abundance of references to other Jane Austen works, Friends, and–drum roll–Harry Potter. You refer to Harry Potter in your writing, and the Potterhead in me can’t help but answer the call of loyalty. Which isn’t difficult, because this is one of the funniest and most original spins on a classic I’ve ever had the fortune of coming across. 5/5 stars for sure 😉
