Seducing Mr. Darcy | Gwyn Cready

Time Travel, Magical Pastries, and lots of Sexy Times. I'm giving it a pick even though this may be one of the wackiest Austenesque I've ever read. 😆 #AusteninAugust

Me and Mr. Darcy: A Novel | Alexandra Potter

Yes it's September but the last from my #AusteninAugust 2022. But I'm a #PemberLittens so it's all appropriate to be ready Austenesque.

Read it ages ago. After looking at Goodreads Reviews I vaguely remember it. Want to see if it's still worthy to be on my #ForeverShelf.

CaramelLunacy I would be interested to know if it holds up - I think this was one that didn't really work for me when I read it ages ago (but I'm such a mood reader it may have just caught me at the wrong moment) 3mo

#Pemberlittens I'm so onboard for Mary Bennet being a spy! It's always the quiet ones like The Wallflower in Gail Carriger's books. Little slow in the middle. There was a lot to set up but worth it for the Ending. I look forward to the next book. 😊

Crinoline_Laphroaig Audiobook Note: This is not a critique of Book or Author strictly the Narrator. She mispronounced Maria Lucas's name repeatedly. I looked her up. She done a ton of Austen. She should know better. Fortunately Maria only features in a few scenes. And after the first one I had switched to Kindle. 3mo

I'm enjoying this but Audio book narrator is mispronouncing Maria Lucas's name. 😔

Dragged at first but picked up at that turning point in Jane's life of jilting Harris Bigg-Wither. Had a vague feeling that I might have read this before. Or maybe it's because I've read so much Austenesque.

Neither loved it or hated. But that's partly me. You may like it. I prefer things like #janeandtheexcellentreadalong rather than something like this that is written as Historical Memoir from Cassandra's POV.

Enjoyable Cozy Mystery featuring members of Jane Austen Society in Yorkshire. Particularly loved all the cats named after Austen Characters.

I listened on audio. Excellent Narrator but it just dragged on a bit to long. If I had been reading the Print or Kindle copy I could have read faster.

Definitely going to read next in Series. Want to see how romance between DI Hadley and Bookstore owner Erin progresses.

As a member of Fictional Hangover's Vampire Book Club https://www.facebook.com/groups/fictionalhangover/?ref=share how could I not read this for #AusteninAugust. It's really good.

My only complaint it never addressed how Vampire Darcy could walk in sunlight. And nobody noticed Darcy was always pushing food around his plate and not eating.

Bummed Book 2 isn't available on audio because it's Excessively British. Will read on Kindle. 🧛🏻‍♂️

"She was witnessing here both sides of the fairy tale: the before, represented here by the modest but respectfully dressed womenfolk; the after, by Edward in his customary splendid attire."

Neither loved it or hated it; mostly just meh, middle of the road. Felt like it couldn't make up it mind if it wanted to be Historical Fiction or Modern Day.

Ended up listening to some of book and wasn't crazy about Narrator. I would try next in the Series but would go with Library book instead of buying. #AusteninAugust

LeslieO On the plus side that‘s a pretty cover! 3mo
CaramelLunacy I was amused by this one but not blown away. Not sure the law firm bit really worked for me as a through-line given the historical... 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @LeslieO there so pretty! 3mo
