    Yet another "inspired by Austen" pastiche. If these authors truly loved Jane Austen, they would leave her the hell alone and stop trying to profit off of her books. Having two characters dislike each other but click romantically, and naming the guy Darcy doesn't make you another Jane. ...

    I must qualify this review by stating upfront that I am one of the only women in the world who really did not like Pride and Prejudice. I was tasked with reading a "retelling" for a challenge, and this book just came out and seemed like it might be perfect. Especially since I have love...

    If you follow me on bookstagram, then you already know that I pre-judged this book as a meh story. I was so set to give it three stars and voice my strong opinions on the writing tearing Sonali Dev a new one in my review. How PREJUDICE of me because this book turned out to be one of my...

    I am not the biggest fan of modern adaptions, because most of the time I see nothing of the story in them, but here it shone through in a wonderful way. She did pp justice and managed a great adaptation. Trisha is the proud surgeon. But her family ties are not the best because of s...

    4.3 stars I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. The truth was, he was right about many things?things she could change, like how she treated people. He was also wrong about a few?...

    A modern day retelling of Pride and Prejudice (obviously), set in the Bay Area and featuring the unlikely pairing of world-class neurosurgeon Trisha Raje and up-and-coming master chef DJ Caine, whose initial meeting is fraught with haughtiness and false impressions. As it turns out, Tr...

    Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors by Sonali Dev A romance in the end but it takes a while to get there. It's a very loose take off from the Austin novel set in today's world where privilege and pride need to be broken down as barriers for the couple really get to know one another....

    Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors is a modern, gender flipped retelling of the beloved classic with Indian flair. This book only loosely follows the original, which I really liked because I don't want to read the same exact story. Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors was one of the mo...

    Mostly a 3.5. I had read books by this author before, but long ago that I don?t remember much about them. However, when I read the synopsis for this one and realized it?s a desi retelling of P&P, I was just so happy. I also loved that this was set in US, because I can relate...

    Well, I?m a complete sucker for anything P+P and I was excited to see how a different take played out. Love love loved Trisha and DJ. She?s smart and maybe a bit awkward. He?s gruff and sort of a marshmallow. Together, she?s the Darcy and he?s the Elizabeth and I was all ...

    I keep going back and forth on the rating. This might be 2.5 stars or it might be solidly 3. I can't decide. I?ve enjoyed Sonali Dev?s romance novels so I was curious what I would think of her women?s fiction, particularly one that is Pride And Prejudice-inspired. And I have t...

    My craving for a light, diverting read was satisfied by this Pride and Prejudice inspired novel. I loved the way Dev played with the roles and made the story her own. The food descriptions were amazing - how perfect to cast Darcy as a chef! A delicious romp. ...

    Enchanting ~ Enjoyable ~ Adorable tl;dr: Masala Pride and Prejudic I LOVED THIS BOOK. I have read so, so many Pride remixes. There are bad, worse, good, and great. This book falls in the great section. Dev's Trisha is a gal you would want to know in real life. She is awesome, bu...

    Review is now live on A Take from Two Cities blog here. This read was the most unusual Pride & Prejudice retelling I have encountered and where it shone was in the complexity of the plot and characters of the family, so true to the original. However, this is a authentic piece of...

    This is a tough one for me to review. First of all, I won an ARC in a giveaway from the publisher, but the thoughts here are entirely my own. When I read the blurb, I was super excited: Austen + Bollywood? Hell, yeah! Sign me up. What I did not realize was that this is the slowest of s...

    MY RATING: 5/5 STARS I received a copy from Harper Collins Canada in exchange for a honest review. BUT GUYS this might be my favourite read of 2019 so far. Okay, not my most favourite book of 2019 but Top 10 and it's pretty high up on the list. If you're a fan of retellings, then...

    I tried my hardest to like to this book. *Content warnings for like a shit of things that will be somewhat mentioned in my review: difficult pregnancies, spontaneous abortions, rape, death (and death by OR), several diseases, assisted suicide (sort of), etc. I very rarely mention th...

    The genres of popular fiction each have their own modes of description, a palette of language that feels comfy and recognizable to the reader. For romantic fiction, there is a limited common vocabulary of attraction; fair enough, I would have said, because there are only so many ways t...

    It's a very long time since a book has irritated me as much as this one and I probably should have just dropped it very early on and not wasted so much time on it. Blame my foolish 'completer-finisher' tendencies, but reading this was torture. Why? Firstly the deeply irritating ...

    Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review. Wow. What a wonderful retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Only the Mr. Darcy character is gender swapped and instead of being an upperclass nobleman, we have a young surgeon whose family is d...

    A loose adaptation of a favorite classic that Sonali made her own. She enhanced the much-loved themes with her unique brand of rich culture, powerful social commentary, and engaging storytelling. This was utterly scrumptious. Like all the food described, this is a book you want...

    Exact rating: 4.5 I am a very big fan of Pride and Prejudice (and actually plan on re-watching the 2005 film adaptation for the millionth time sometime soon). I?ve also been on a rom-com kick with my reading, so it was as if Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors was made for me! My ...

    Fun Fun Fun A gender flipped Pride and Prej retelling with a surgeon Trisha as Mr. Darcy and DJ as Elizabeth Bennett. What I loved: - drama - jumping balconies, rom-com scenes, flailing in love, girl hates boy trope to fall in love later, rich girl poor boy trope, royal Indian f...

    Now this is the kind of retelling that doesn't make me want to pull my hair out! I've read so many variations of P&P and never have I been this satisfied with one. Sonali Dev has successfully delivered an awesome, gender-swapped retelling of everyone's favourite love story, with e...

    DNFed at ~60%. Unfortunately this book missed so many marks for me. The love interest had nearly no redeeming qualities and even this far into the book I still couldn?t imagine liking him in the slightest. There were a lot of ?woke? moments that weren?t explored and just se...

    Pride and Prejudice and Other Flavors is a modern retelling of the timeless classic. This version has a unique element. The woman, Trisha, is proud, and the man, DJ, is prejudice. I liked Trisha. She is proud because she's a surgeon, and that's a justifiable reason. She is an intellige...

    I thought I had the mental bandwidth to discuss why this book didn't work for me, but I don't. I'm tired. But I want to justify my rating and what I thought was problematic, so major spoilers under the spoiler tag. CW: rape (view spoiler)[A lot didn't work for me. The HIPAA viol...

    This book bewitched me, body and soul. I'm biased as an Austen enthusiast but Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors gave me just what I wanted: the acidy burble in my stomach that comes from vicariously living through a glorious misunderstanding between could-be lovers. ...
