My local B&N has a great display of Austen retellings right now! Found a few more to add to my TBR. #pemberlittens

Also, after some time off I‘m ready to jump back in to the chapter a day buddy reads, but I‘m not sure what the current schedule is?

sprainedbrain Oh I see some I need to look up! May/June books are Lady Susan, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, and Jane Austen At Home. The buddy read for Lady Susan already finished, but check out @jenniferw88 for Jane At Home and @BarkingMadRun for Tenant schedules. So glad you‘re feeling able to join in again! ❤️ 6d

This is barely a pick, although the ending was quite satisfying. Imagine the characters of P&P in a world where they are lawyers, with Lizzy‘s powers of deduction more fitting into a cozy mystery book than a true mystery. What saved this book from the so-so is the pirate angle, which I thought was interesting. 2/5 stars, good to read when sick.

I seem to be on a roll with the "it was ok" books... another low pick. This one takes the characters of P&P and moves them into middle class. When Bingley is suspected of murder, Darcy and Lizzie are in competition over whose law firm will represent him- Darcy or Lizzie's father. Lizzie of course dreams of practicing law herself and decides to find the true murderer. All sorts of hijinks ensue...

Now this was a good murder mystery novel. The ending had a perfect measure of not expecting the murderer and not having the murderer connected in some extraordinary way. I‘ve never read Pride and Prejudice, so I have no idea how it compares to that, but it was a great mystery and romance. 5🌟

Despite Mrs. Bennet's best efforts, Lizzie doesn't want to get married- she wants to become a barrister at her dad's law office. Despite Mr. Bennet's best efforts to discourage her, Lizzie takes it upon herself to try to figure out who murdered Mr. Bingley's brother-in-law. The top suspect? Mr. Bingley.

Another book finished during the #NovelNovember Readathon! This was a fun retelling of Pride and Prejudice as a murder mystery!

#PemberLittens & other Pride and Prejudice fans, these two e-book adaptations are on sale right now & look like fun. Pride & Paranormal looks like a good one for October reading lists. I just bought both to add to my massive Kindle #TBR list. 📚📚📚🤦🏻‍♀️📚📚📚

sprainedbrain I really liked Pride & Premeditation… lots of fun. Going to snap up the next one now. Thanks! 8mo

2021 is shaping up to be a year I definitely won't forget. On my way home from work last Wed night, another driver ran a red light hitting the back passenger side of my car and spinning me at least 180 degrees. I am incredibly lucky to have walked away with bruises and aches; the ER doc said I should heal up in a couple weeks although I should keep an eye on how I feel. Treated myself to some retail therapy at my local BN's moving sale yesterday.

I love a retelling that gives a little twist to the original story. The twist here is that Elizabeth Bennet wants her father to allow her to work in the family‘s law practice, which leads her to try to solve a murder with Darcy showing up at a rival law firm. I will definitely read the next book in the series.

A very reserved pick for me. Like “A Study in Charlotte,” this book would‘ve done better without the comparison to one of the greatest novels ever written. The characters didn‘t have much in common at all with their namesakes, and I can imagine Austen turning in her grave knowing how her heroine is being handled, but it was a fun, fast- paced read and a nice way to spend the afternoon.

As someone who adores all things Austen it was nice to spend time with some of my favorite characters. Not my favorite retelling by any means but a fun read nonetheless.

This was a fun and mysterious romp through regency London. Although it is not historically accurate for the time (the author admits this) there is still a lot of detail about the period and life in London. I look forward to reading more from the Jane Austin Murder Mystery series.

3.75 stars rounded to 4

Thanks to #Netgalley I‘d gotten a chance to listen to this one before its publication. It‘s a YA whodunnit spin on Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice novel. I thought it was a lot of fun and it looks like the author has a couple more of Austen‘s books she‘ll be doing this too as well. I‘m excited, I love a fun mystery.

A charming retelling. Price remixes the characters & circumstances in just the right way, making for a unique experience that still feels familiar & comfortable. Lizzie & Darcy read a bit younger than in the original, but still experience the same kind of character growth. The touches of reflection on social class, justice, & sexism are just enough to make their point w/o becoming heavy-handed. I'm delightedly craving the next.

jmtrivera Thanks to Netgalley and HarperTeen for providing this ARC for review! 1y

I have never really been a fan of Pride and Prejudice. Ive seen multiple versions of the movie and loved them, but I have never made it through the book. And unfortunately I didn‘t make it through this one either. I like the premise. Elizabeth bennett wants to be a lawyer and practice with her dad, but she is a lady and lady‘s done work. Mystery abound, but it‘s not entertaining enough to the listerner to care enough to finish the story.

lisslalissar I liked this one, but I'm not sure if I would have stuck with it in print. For fulfilling curbside bundle requests, it was a good background book. 1y
LibrarianRyan @lisslalissar I agree as background it was okay but then I went on vacation for a week and had no desire to pick it back up or start it again 1y
LibrarianRyan I‘m listening to Furia right now. It‘s okay but I‘m not to where I see why it win the Printz award yet. 1y

#Netgalley users, has anyone else tried the new audio review copies? This one is a “voice galley” rather than the upcoming audiobook: it‘s just a synthetic voice reading the galley aloud. I‘m... interested, but not sure I‘ll use them regularly. It‘s nice to make a dent on my Netgalley tbr while doing housework (aka how I do most reading currently), but also the synthetic voice is VERY synthetic, and I‘m spoiled too high quality audio these days...

Daisey I have not yet requested any for this very reason. The narrator is an important aspect of an audiobook, and I think a synthetic voice would impact my appreciation of the experience. 1y
lisslalissar I'm about halfway through this one and I'm pleasantly surprised by the synthetic voice. It flows much more naturally than I expected, not sounding stilted or awkward. I spend a lot more time at work now on tasks that don't require undivided attention than I did pre-covid, so these audiobooks are great way to keep up on what's new. 1y
sprainedbrain I‘ve listened to two so far... this one with the synthetic voice, but the other book I listened to had a real narrator. 1y

Omg this was so fun! Scheduled to be released in April...

YA(ish) Pride and Prejudice retelling with murder! And competing law firms of Longbourn & Sons (lol) and Pemberley & Associates.

My spoiler-free rambling review is on my blog: http://sprainedbrain.blog/2020/12/12/really-early-arc-review-pride-premeditation...

#PemberLittens I can‘t wait to talk to y‘all about this!

This was a fun read! Jane Austen meets a murder mystery and amateur sleuth! As a mass consumer of female sleuths going against gender norms of society...I loved this. I liked the liberties Tirzah Price took in order to create Jane's personality and conflict that wasn't just a “being a woman sucks in this time period.“ The romance with Darcy was very present and I liked the banter/tension/conflict between them.
I did NOT see the twists at the end.

TheLibrarian The author used to be my bibliologist for my Tailored Book Recommendations subscription and contributes to Book Riot. I didn‘t know she wrote a book and will need to check it out, especially after your review! 2y
