Midnight in Austenland is a very enjoyable book for Austen fans! A funny mystery and romance.

Listened to it as an audiobook with Scribd while walking.

I went to the Utah Library Association Conference today, and Shannon Hale was the lunch speaker. I love her. I wish I had had time to stay in her line, but at least I got to hear her talk and show pictures that she posed for with Ricky Whittle on the set of Austenland. He‘s purty, and the pictures were hilarious. Plus, she talked about graphic novels, which are totally my jam. #ula2019

I tagged my personal favorite of her books.

Good. Even though this is the second book in the series it doesn't follow on as it is a stand alone story. I enjoyed the murder mystery within the story as it made me want to read on to find out how it ended. Recommend to Jane Austen fans.

Thank @robinb for recommending this as part of my #newyearwhodis set up by @monalyisha which was a great idea. 📚📖

Definitely has an odd vibe compared to Austenland but still fun to visit again even if a bit weird and unrealistic. Humor and mystery made it a fun read for me overall!

robinb I actually liked this one better than Austenland...because of the mystery and odd vibe! 🤣🤣🤣 14mo

Not nearly as good as the first. It felt a bit drawn out and more like Insta love. Still fairly enjoyable. The best part was Ms. Elizabeth Charming getting her version of an HeA.

Found these on the $1 shelf at my Friends of the Library bookstore. Ex-library books can be sketchy sometimes, but these are in good shape.

The tagged book is for my sister because she loved Austenland, and Carve the Mark is for me because I have self-control issues with buying lost, wayward copies of books I like. #bookhoarder

I loved this book...even more than the first one! ❤️ It isn‘t a sequel (new H/h), but it takes place in the same locale with some of the same secondary characters included. It revolves around a divorced woman looking for a light-hearted adventure to get her mojo back. While similar to the first, this one is a little Gothic (think Northanger Abbey) and also involves a mystery to solve. Funny, sweet, with twists and turns. Happy I found it! 😊 5⭐️

Zelma I loved Austenland so much but never read this one, will remedy that soon! 2y

Just realized that I had purchased this ebook way back in 2012 (probably on sale at the time) and had forgotten about it. Since this is second in the series (and I just finished the first), it‘s the perfect time to read it! 😊 This takes place in the same locale, just a new hero/heroine.
#FeedingMyAustenHabit 🤣🤷🏻‍♀️

@eanderson Have you read this one?

Laughterhp I didn‘t know there was a second one! I really liked the first book. 2y
robinb @Laughterhp I just happened to stumble upon the fact that I owned it when I was looking at the first one on Amazon. I noticed it said “2 in series”, so I thought, Hey I might try the second since I liked the first. Further checking revealed I bought the second 6 years ago. 🙄🤷🏻‍♀️ It MUST have been on sale then as I ALWAYS read in order. 🤣🤣 2y
LeahBergen Have you watched the movie of Austenland yet? It‘s a fun one! 2y

It‘s fluff and it‘s silly, and I laughed a lot and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I love that the main character is a middle-aged divorced mom, I love the murder twist, and it was just fun and clever and exactly what I needed.

JaclynW I should remember to read this when I need a fluff book in between some emotionally draining books. I've read Austenland and thought it was fun. I forgot about this one. Are any of the characters the same from Austenland? 2y

#Readathon wrap up: I read the books on the right completely, and the ones on the left are still in progress. 7 hours, 30 minutes (including 1hr 45min audio) - usually I hit 10-12 hrs. Oh well, there‘s no such thing as failing the Readathon! Page count was 852, thanks to a couple of graphic novels. Special thanks to my trusty RAT buddy @LauraBrook . We‘ve never met, but have been doing Dewey‘s Readathon together since April, 2011! 😘📚

Jinjer Friends that readathon together stay together!!!! 2y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was the perfect fall read! Murder mystery meets Northanger Abbey meets Mansfield Park! Definitely some unexpected twists mixed with some very predictable ones 😉 And Shannon Hale's writing is witty and sweet.

HAPPY JANE AUSTEN DAY! #FaveJaneAustenAdaptation #SeasonsReadings2016 I think these are the only adaptations I've read. I enjoyed them both. Had a superb girls night when I got a friend to see Austenland in the theater with me! Midnight in Austenland will make more sense if you have read Northanger Abbey.

KVanRead Loved the movie. I will have to try the book! 3y
CogsOfEncouragement When I learned they had cast Jennifer Coolidge as Miss Charming, I immediately exclaimed to myself - Perfection! I expect it will be a delight to read the book picturing her in the part. 😃❤️📚 3y

Wow, I'm incredibly disappointed. The first book was so fun and this one was such a dud. I was wondering what was taking me so long to finish such a short book.
