I finally kicked off my holiday reading with Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz, which is an adorable Hallmark-ish romance. As you all know, I just love this genre.
I first heard about this book when Melissa of Chick Lit Central posted about it. I was so thrilled when she then reached out to me and offered to send me her copy once she was done! Thanks again Melissa!
My Thoughts on Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa de la Cruz
I’m a total sucker for cutesy Hallmark-ish romances. This book certainly fit the bill!
The writing was light and very easy to read. The dialogue was realistic. The characters were lovely. The plot was predictable, sure, but oh so adorable. I picked this up one afternoon and didn’t put it down until I had read the whole book.
I really enjoyed Darcy as a main character, even though she seemed a bit immature. The way the author let her run away with her thought spirals was so realistic! For example, when a group of characters were out caroling and singing the Twelve Days of Christmas, Darcy starts asking questions about the song. Once she gets started, one questions leads to another, and another, and another! I thought this scene was absolutely hilarious! And her questions were all ones that I had wondered myself!
My Favorite Passage from Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe
You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first, otherwise you’ll have nothing to work with.
