The blog tour for Amy George’s ‘Second Impressions’ stops by today. Amy George is a new author so I don’t know much about her – luckily for me, my stop on the blog tour is the author interview, so I get to be nosy and ask some questions!

Lady Susan Book and Love and Friendship Film - My Review

Book cover: Lady Susan by Jane Austen
Lady Susan

I was unaware for years of this early work of Jane Austen’s, only hearing of its existence a few years ago. I was prompted to read it by a recent film adaptation, ‘Love and Friendship’. I always like to read the book before watching the film if possible so that I know the real story.

Mr Darcy's Pride and Joy by Monica Fairview - Guest Post, Excerpt and Giveaway

Blog Tour - The Darcy Novels - Mr Darcy's Pride and Joy by Monica Fairview
I am happy to be welcoming Monica Fairview to Babblings of a Bookworm today. Monica has written numerous Austen-inspired books (here they are on Goodreads), and her latest book is the third book in 'The Darcy Novels' series. I read and reviewed the first two books when they came out. The story began in Book 1, 'Mr Darcy's Pledge', continued in Book 2, 'Mr Darcy's Challenge' and I believe will conclude with this book, 'Mr Darcy's Pride and Joy'.

Monica has brought us a guest post and excerpt from 'Mr Darcy's Pride and Joy' to enjoy today, and she's also offering to give away an e-book copy of the book to a commenter here (or a copy of another of the books in the series, in case you need to catch up). Read on for more details!

The year is zooming by, it's August already! With August comes school holidays and although I have some time off work unfortunately I'm not likely to get much more reading done, though hopefully I will be able to spend some nice time with my children.
