"Waiting On" Wednesday: Eligible

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:


Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice
By Curtis Sittenfeld

Publication Date: April 26

From Amazon:

Liz is a magazine writer in her late thirties who, like her yoga instructor older sister, Jane, lives in New York City. When their father has a health scare, they return to their childhood home in Cincinnati to help—and discover that the sprawling Tudor they grew up in is crumbling and the family is in disarray.
Youngest sisters Kitty and Lydia are too busy with their CrossFit workouts and Paleo diets to get jobs. Mary, the middle sister, is earning her third online master’s degree and barely leaves her room, except for those mysterious Tuesday-night outings she won’t discuss. And Mrs. Bennet has one thing on her mind: how to marry off her daughters, especially as Jane’s fortieth birthday fast approaches.

Enter Chip Bingley, a handsome new-in-town doctor who recently appeared on the juggernaut reality TV dating show 
Eligible. At a Fourth of July barbecue, Chip takes an immediate interest in Jane, but Chip’s friend neurosurgeon Fitzwilliam Darcy reveals himself to Liz to be much less charming. . . . 

And yet, first impressions can be deceiving.

Another Darcy? Sorry Chris but being on Eligible and ending up still single does not sound like good news. An interesting pick today.

WOW

Nice pick! I just saw this one on Goodreads this week.

This sounds like it could be good. I haven't read anything by Sittenfeld yet but I love P&P and am always curious about retellings of it. I know I will be purchasing a copy for the library so I'll have to check it out. Great pick!

Very appropriate as today is Jane Austen's birthday!

Renee said...

Great pick ~ I've added it to my TBR pile. Hope you enjoy the book!

Sounds intriguing...I do love stories where the characters go back to find crumbling houses to fix...and love. LOL
