It's another happy day for followers of Filipino-authored contemporary romance! My friend and fellow "chick lit" author Katrina Ramos Atienza has a new book out, and guess what? It's a retelling of Pride and Prejudice. Yes, that one. Set in the present day, at a university that looks exactly like UP Los Banos.
Patrice Reyes is starting her junior year at the University and she's convinced it's going to be the best semester ever. For starters, it looks like this is the year her team will win the regional football (soccer, for you Yanks) championships. Her subjects are looking good, and there's even a chance she might finally get somewhere with her rock star crush. But a new classmate—arrogant, cold math nerd—is seriously throwing off her groove. Will she ever get rid of him and have the awesome semester she deserves? Or is there truth to never judging (math) books by their cover?
Get it on Amazon
Katrina is independently publishing this, and I was happy to help her on that last stretch so she could release this book. I hope romance readers and supporters of Filipino authors out there go and get it!
