I really liked this!! I mean, Jane Austen's Persuasion, retold as a dystopian YA novel? How could I resist?‽!

Still plugging away at this one, but now that summer school has started and I'm still doing summery thugs I don't have as much time. Hoping to finish this week!

Mehso-so

This says in the copy it's Austen meets the apocalypse. Based on Persuasion which happens to be my fave Austen - took me so long to get into it and there's backstory missing there's plot holes until the end. It did catch me as I read further but only because I was picturing BBC Persuasion in my head.

Blar! 😡😤 When your digital library loan ends as you're reading and there's a queue! I'm busy! Reading time eludes me! That's it...quit everything, call in sick, I need to read. Okay, no, I have to adult - I have bills to pay. 🤓😜

Ellsbeth I hate when that happens. I was happily listening to a good audiobook when another one with a long wait list came available. I had to drop the first (no waitlist, but good) and I'm trying to cram in the 2nd before the due date because I know it will be a long time before I can get it again if I don't finish. 😎 3y

My #favejaneaustenadaptation is based on my favorite, Persuasion. It is set in a dystopian future but feels like Georgian times because an event has transformed society back to a more countrified, Luddite way of life. Thankfully that is an interesting background and not overwhelming. It's mainly about the love story and family complications very faithful to the original - the new setting just allows some awesome tweaks to the story.
✨💖LOVE 💖✨

tricours Wow, sounds interesting! I think I should read Persuasion first though... 3y
