There is a great deal that goes into making a video blog. Lizzie Bennet should know, having become a YouTube sensation over the course of her year-long video diary project. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries may have started as her grad student thesis, but it grew into so much more, as the videos came to inform and reflect her life and that of her sisters, beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia. People watched, debated, tweeted, tumblr'd, and suddenly Lizzie -- who always considered herself a fairly normal young woman -- was a public figure.
But not everything happened on-screen. Luckily for us, Lizzie kept a secret diary. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet is everything you didn't see on The Lizzie Bennet Diaries , and more.
As much as the story revolves around a year in Lizzie's life when she happened to be making videos, it in no way means that one must watch the videos to enjoy the book. In fact, it is quite the opposite. The structure of Secret Diary will follow closely to Pride and Prejudice itself, with three volumes divided into a few dozen chapters each. Each chapter will correspond with one LBD video, so should you happen to want to watch while you read, you can , but are by no means obligated to. The book can be enjoyed on its own.
