First up I have 'An Obstinate, Headstrong Girl' by Abigail Bok. This is a contemporary Pride & Prejudice retelling which includes a number of interesting changes such as two of the Bennet sisters being Bennet brothers, and George Wickham being of Mexican descent. As I understand it this is a modern retelling with a twist.
A Duchess Enraged' which I read last year. 'Sense & Sensuality' tells the story of some of the secondary characters from the previous book, the hero's sister, Caroline, who is a young widow, and another character.
Austenesque TBR Group, the moderator, Sophia, came up with the idea of posting a list and letting somebody else choose one of your April reads. It was quite fun to wield my choosing power for somebody else! I selected 'The Muse' from the list of the person I was choosing for, which I hope she'll enjoy. The read I had selected for me was a completion of 'Sanditon' which I've been meaning to read for ages. I read a review of this once where the reviewer said that they couldn't see the join between Austen's work and the author of the remainder, so we will see if I notice it!
North and South group, we are having a group read of 'Wives and Daughters' by Mrs Gaskell. I've read this before, and I remember that I enjoyed it, but nothing else about the story at all! I think it'll take a while to read the whole of this book, as it's a group read.
|Bad girl, buying books again!|
Do you have anything good lined up to read? Or have you read anything wonderful you'd like to recommend? There is always space on the TBR list for another book!
