So glad I finally read this book. It was my first long chapter-a-day read with the #pemberlittens and won't be my last. I liked getting to know the staff and thinking about everything that was going on “downstairs“ while the well-loved events of Pride and Prejudice unfolded “upstairs.“ I did not like how one of my favorites from upstairs acted completely out of character toward the end of the book. The pic is called Sewing Maid by Alexis Vollon.

I have conflicting feelings about this one.I don't see the need of making Jane Austen the protagonist, more than to throw in a couple of quotes and maybe reach a wider audience, the story would have been the same if it was Jane Doe instead. I think for that reason I was quite bored and confused the first part of the book. But I ended up enjoying it as a good murder mystery, so I'll stick around for another month of #JaneandtheExcellentReadalong

rwmg Which is pretty much why I don't read historical mysteries that cast a real person as the detective. 5h

Today‘s #bookmail includes the tagged for #DeadPhilosophersSociety, A Secret Sisterhood for #PemberLittens, A Mind Spread Out on the Ground for #SheSaid - and a bunch of feminist works because that‘s the mood I was in when I was on Book Outlet that day. Also a cute puzzle/find ‘em/geography thing for the kiddo.

kspenmoll When is a Secret Sisterhood being read- I have the book. 1d
ravenlee @kspenmoll it‘s the September/October book about JA for #PemberLittens. I don‘t think there‘s a schedule yet, or even a designated host - @sprainedbrain are you leading this one? 1d
sprainedbrain Nope, @BarkingMadRun will be leading this one. I will be posting reminders about all of our Sept/Oct books this weekend. 😉 1d

#Pemberlittens ?‼️

If you're going to write Austenesque you should know that original novels were not written in one book. Pride & Prejudice was 3 Volumes.

“The producer gave them to me as a gift when I signed on to do the film. I‘d prefer jewelry, but never mind. These are nice. First editions, I believe.”

A momentary silence filled the house as Jane stopped breathing. She stared at the six books that now lay on the table."


Crinoline_Laphroaig Such a dumb mistake. It didn't serve any purpose for the books to be First Editions. Cheap paperbacks would have worked to get the point across to Time Traveling Jane that she was a published author. 2d

I truly enjoyed this story. Poor Anne her life was not easy. It was interesting to see Jane from a different perspective. That as a friend and a sister. This author really did an amazing job bringing these very real people to life for the reader. #pemberlittens

Bklover Sounds good! 2d
KristiAhlers @Bklover it really was so very good. I need to pick up her other titles one day. 2d

4.5⭐️ I really enjoyed the book and noticed much more of the story the second time I read it. I really liked the behind the scenes of the book, while still having a lot of familiar characters around. #2022 #historicalfiction #retellings #fiction #bookreview #bookstagram #pemberlittens

Read this as my #doublespin for August

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Such an amazing book by Susanna Clarke, also wrote my J pick Jonathon Strange and Mr Norrell

Also The Princess Bride, Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice. For my fellow #pemberlittens

batsy I loved Piranesi. A book that continues to linger in my mind 💕 4d
AllDebooks @batsy it really is a haunting story isn't it? I think it's going to be one of those that reveals more layers and meaning the more you reread it too 4d
