This book is incredible! I loved the information about old books, the mystery surrounding the authorship of Shakespeare‘s works, the story of Peter and Amanda, and the mystery surrounding the whole thing. Wow! #mmdbookclub #modernmrsdarcy
This is the #mmdflightpick for September, although I had already purchased it on sale for Kindle because of its ties to Jane Eyre. Jane Steele is quite an independent woman for her time, and she has a tendency to take matters into her own hands. I wish I had had more time to read over the past week. I would have devoured this book much more quickly! It‘s definitely worth a reread! #ModernMrsDarcy #mmdbookclub
This was fun! I doubt I would have read it if it wasn‘t the #mmdbookclub September pick. The mystery was interesting, with a twist I didn‘t see coming. The relationship between the lepidopterist and the natural historian was interesting and made me smile. I also admire Veronica‘s independence and desire for an adventure. She‘s pretty unflappable! #ModernMrsDarcy
I never had the least intention of reading a Veronica Speedwell mystery, but when it‘s a Modern Mrs Darcy book club pick, well, what choice do you have? I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it, although it was a bit corny in places. I guessed Veronica‘s secret before the reveal, and kind of knew what the resolution would be, but it was a fun read. #mmdbookclub @annebogel ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
How did I not finish Pride and Prejudice before now?! I love this story and was continually reminded of the romance between Benedick and Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing (which I adore) as I read. Please sign me up for all the retellings! 🥰😍❤️
And now I want to read more Austen. I‘m converted!
Yes, I have a degree in English. Yes, I read classics. Somehow, I have never gotten all the way through Pride and Prejudice. It‘s the August pick for the #mmdbookclub, so I‘m diving in with Rosamund Pike as narrator! #modernmrsdarcy #audible #audiobook
I enjoyed this book! It made me think about food differently, and I love how she explained the disguises and addressed how people are treated differently and made to feel inferior based on their physical appearance and other factors. I am even more determined to be kind to others! I didn‘t think a book about a food critic‘s job was for me, but I was wrong! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #mmdbookclub #modernmrsdarcy
