The Bard meets the Backstreet Boys in Pop Sonnets, a collection of 100 classic pop songs reimagined as Shakespearean sonnets. All of your favorite artists are represented in these pages—from Bon Jovi and Green Day to Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, and beyond.

This is the perfect book for new years eve fun. Gather a bunch of friends and try to guess the song! It has been so much fun to try and figure out. The one organizing it must censor the book a bit though as the titles and artists are named right there with the song. I would not have had a problem with an index in the back only with the description.
There are some nice Shakespearean images added in the book for the better atmosphere. It was fun too to try and sing these lyrics along with originals on Youtube.If you want to get a taste head over to the Pop Sonnets Tumblr
