#Pemberlittens Look at these beautiful #Janeite books author and illustrator Julia Fry gifted me! We follow each other on Instagram but hadn't really engaged, other than a couple of times I commented on her posts. She messaged me after the fire saying she wanted to sent me her books. She autographed them and included the sweetest note. Note card is her design as well. So pretty! Lovely addition to my #AllThingsAusten shelf.

Crinoline_Laphroaig @StayCurious @CrowCAH it's been a busy weekend. Catching up on Miss Austen #JaneAdjacent and #HearthstoneBuddyRead today. 🎧👩‍🌾 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig #HeartstoneBuddyRead 2nd time I've misspelled.🤦‍♀️ 3w

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Ch 1: Awkward! Cassandra Austen, who appears to be an old family friend, arrives practically unannounced at the vicarage and receives a truly lukewarm reception. In a time period where hospitality was so important, they practically show her none. But Cassandra has a reason for being there and she doesn‘t intend to leave until she finds the letters she is looking for - despite the chilly feel to the air of the house.

BarkingMadRead They were going out of their way to be rude to Cassandra! Ugh! 3w
StayCurious @BarkingMadRead yes but I kept thinking how I would feel if I was in the middle of moving and an old acquaintance dropped by for an extended stay… 3w

KristiAhlers I love these memes. I don't understand why people can be so mean. They worked overtime really to be mean. 3w
suvata I already know I‘m going to like this book. I hate unexpected visitors too, but Cassandra was on a deadline. She couldn‘t dillydally if she wanted to find those letters. Favorite quote from Chapter 1: “A single woman should never outlive her usefulness. It was simple bad manners.” 3w
julieclair I felt so sorry for Cassandra. I also sympathized with Isabella, as I am not fond of last minute house guests either. But she didn't have to be so rude. 3w
julieclair @suvata Yes! Great quote! 3w
willaful I also feel I'm going to like this. The dry wit is very appropriate. I'm really curious about how things turned out this way for Cassandra and if it was the best thing for her. 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig Was wondering why I had downloaded Miss Austen on my Audible. Forgot about this Chapter a Day. Will catch-up today while running errands. 3w
Crinoline_Laphroaig It's a Reread for me. Remember loving it. 3w
kspenmoll I plan to catch up this weekend. Could‘t start 3/1. 3w
janeycanuck Started on this today - what a great first chapter to really draw you in and get you invested in the story! 3w

#StoryGraph: nonfiction history informative regency

“Ian Mortimer turns to what is arguably the most-loved period in British history - the Regency, or Georgian England. A time of exuberance, thrills, frills and unchecked bad behaviour, it was perhaps the last age of true freedom before the trarrival of the stifling world of Victorian morality.”
