It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a mother in possession of great wisdom, must be in want—nay, in need—of a daughter who will listen.”

Cute opening line but this mother was a horrible person. She was constantly verbally abusive to her daughter. And it was justified by her and other characters with I/She justs wants what's best for you. ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig There were things I liked Baking, Pride and Prejudice Retelling but ultimately I'm glad this was a Borrow not Buy for #austeninaugust. Minor Spoiler ⬇️

Crinoline_Laphroaig Mother tells daughter she can't compete in Baking Contest because it would appear to be favoritism if daughter won. Yet the mother who created Contest and Judges it; is actively helping Contestants. Plus she picked all the Contestants based on trying to set her daughter up. 3d
CaramelLunacy A shame, that cover is too cute 2d

Looking for this old photo for #chawtonhousephotochallenge I'm doing on Instagram. Thought I would use for today's #Pemberlittens post. W/ #NorthangerAbbeyNovember is coming to and end. Time to make a Dec Stack. Will concentrate on P & Prejudice retellings I didn't get to in Oct since N Abbey retellings are scheduled for Jan. @sprainedbrain

Previous post 2yrs ago: Of course I brought home Lizzy, Darcy, & Jane. 😊

I love how this takes Austen lore of Cassandra burning Jane's letters and spins a story around that. It's the perfect way to write Austenesque.Lovely to see Cassandra shine.

I bought book couple months back because I'd heard such good things about it. Saved it for my #austeninaugust read. It was just delightful. A perfect addition to my Forever Shelf. 💜💜💜💜💜

rubyslippersreads I love everything about this picture. 😍 2y

Palimpsest @MargaretPinardAuthor funny, I recently used the phrase “soul balm” in a litsy post about my cat, but had not seen that phrase elsewhere. Book looks good! @Crinoline_Laphroaig 2y
MargaretPinardAuthor @Palimpsest I thought of ‘balm to my soul‘ then switched order for brevity! 😊🙏 2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Palimpsest @MargaretPinardAuthor Soul Balm is just what I needed! 2y

#AyUpAugust #HappyHour

Most of my #PnPCovers books are second hand, found at used book stores and rummage sales. Each one is special.

My happy hour is the hours I get to read!
