Book Rewind Review: A Date with Darcy (Bookish Boyfriends #1) by Tiffany Schmidt

Who else is in love with companions in a series? My favorite kind of series are books that are in the same universe but you don’t have to read the previous books to understand. A Date with Darcy is Tiffany Schmidt’s second series of companions (her Once Upon a Crime Series will forever remain a favorite of mine) and I can’t wait for book 2! To get ready, I’m revisiting A Date with Darcy for today’s Book Rewind. Check it out and catch up with the series before The Boy Next Door lands on May 21st!

Boys are so much better in books. At least according to Merrilee Campbell, fifteen, who thinks real-life chivalry is dead and there’d be nothing more romantic than having a guy woo her like the heroes in classic stories. Then she, her best friend, Eliza, and her younger sister, Rory, transfer to Reginald R. Hero Prep—where all the boys look like they've stepped off the pages of a romance novel. Merri can hardly walk across the quad without running into someone who reminds her of Romeo.

When the brooding and complicated Monroe Stratford scales Merri’s trellis in an effort to make her his, she thinks she might be Juliet incarnate. But as she works her way through her literature curriculum under the guidance of an enigmatic teacher, Merri’s tale begins to unfold in ways she couldn’t have imagined. Merri soon realizes that only she is in charge of her story. And it is a truth universally acknowledged that first impressions can be deceiving . . .


A Date with Darcy may be the cutest audiobook I listened to in 2018

I am a big Tiffany Schmidt fan and adore how she writes romance. I am also into retellings of classical books (see: The Duke of Bannerman Prep) and taking a historical story and turning it modern. A Date with Darcy combines the best parts of Tiffany’s romance writing along with a retelling!

There are some points in life where you just want to listen to something light and fun – A Date with Darcy is that book. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, while also bringing in elements from classic stories we read in high school. 

Plus, the main character’s motto is “boys are better in books than in real life.” Accurate.

If you’re looking for a HEA, you’re going to find it in Tiffany’s books. I can’t wait for book 2!
