Today is not my day, I've been sicker than I have in over 2 years, had to cancel my dentist appointment, missed out on tickets for Star Wars concert next week, oh and I passed it on to my child 😫. Just wanted to update and say my #LMPBC books will be going out late im sorry @LiteraryinLawrence @MeganAnn

AmandaBlaze Hope you feel better soon. 3w
LiteraryinLawrence Oh no!! Don‘t worry about the book at all, please! We‘ll all get to read it at some point and it‘s no big deal if it‘s late. Just focus on healing! 💗 3w
Chrissyreadit Hope you feel better soon! 3w

#200PnPCovers @CrowCAH @mabell In #Pride & #Prejudice, Mrs.Bennet is desperate to receive #proposals from #rich men for all the Bennet #siblings, so much so that she risks Jane‘s health by making her go to #tea at Netherfield Park in the rain, hoping her #sickness will catch her a husband. Lydia and Kitty hope to catch the attention of the #soldiers stationed in Meryton, so they often #travel on #walks to meet them. (I think I got each prompt in!)

Not an entire book on #Angola, but I'm counting it as I learnt the above fact. #ReadingAfrica2022 @Librarybelle @BarbaraBB

Bad Science tells the reader a lot about how you should treat all claims about scientific studies about new drugs treating #sickness with a grain of salt, as results are bound to be skewered towards a positive outcome. #200pnpcovers @CrowCAH @mabell


Librarybelle Hooray!! 2mo
mabell Interesting! 2mo

Mr. Woodhouse‘s preoccupation with #sickness is how I first learned the word valetudinarian. No gruel for me, thanks! 😂

BookBabe Ha! Great word. 😄👌🏻 2mo
MaureenMc Upon my most recent reading, Mr. Woodhouse struck me as an early keto devotee, with his love for eggs and horror at cake. 😁 2mo
rubyslippersreads @MaureenMc A man ahead of his time. 😂 2mo

(This one isn't in the system)

On his way to see the new estate that his friend has leased, Darcy is thrown from his horse and knocked unconscious. Someone finds him and takes him to the closest house, and despite the fact that the Bennets have no idea who this man is, they agree to shelter him while he recovers from his head injury. The doctor tells them that it is unknown whether people in this condition are aware of their surroundings, but ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) some people believe it is beneficial for patients like this to be talked to as thought they were awake. And so most of this book involves Darcy actually being in a coma, listening to the Bennet household (at this point, a group of strangers he's never met) operating around him. It's an interesting story because Darcy does obviously have a great deal of time for self-reflection, and finds himself reassessing some of his preconceived ideas⬇ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) and beliefs. However, we only ever get Darcy's (third person) POV, so the story feels strangely passive in many ways, since their isn't a lot of action. I think the book would have greatly benefitted from Elizabeth's POV as well, especially since the way the book is written, we only see Darcy changing his views - apparently Elizabeth is already perfect and doesn't need to change anything about herself. To me, one of the great strengths ⬇ 2mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) of the original story is BOTH Darcy and Elizabeth recognizing their shortcomings, so it always low-key annoys me when variations act like Elizabeth is already a perfect goddess rather than a fallible human. Still, this is a unique and entertaining concept and I overall enjoyed it.

(I keep forgetting to mention which prompt each book represents! This one is for #sickness )

CrowCAH I like your review of the books. Definitely helps inform my decision to add it to the TBR or not. You bring up a great point about BOTH E and D changing in the original. I will make sure that happens in my pirate P&P retelling. 2mo
TheAromaofBooks @CrowCAH - Thank you!! Most of these are just “silly“ Kindle Unlimited reads, but I just so thoroughly enjoy going on a P&P binge sometimes - it's actually one of my favorite things to do when I'm in a bit of a reading slump!! 2mo

The latest Jane Austen mystery takes place in 1816, as Jane grapples with a #sickness she cannot quite shake. Even filling ill, she is ready to solve a crime. Cannot wait to read this one! #200PnPCovers

Bookwormjillk I just saw that at the library yesterday but didn‘t pick it up because I already had a stack. I look forward to seeing your review. 2mo
CrowCAH Oh wow, very true to life with Jane being ill. 2mo
mabell Great choice! 2mo

BarbaraBB I‘ve read about a long walk too in my choice for South Sudan 2mo
BarbaraBB Oh it‘s the same author. Maybe it even is the same book with a different title! 2mo
Tattooedteacher @BarbaraBB Yes! The picture book is dubbed as the companion book for the middle grade novel. 2mo
