May book prompt #3...

Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen’s most popular novel. The book I never seem to understand why it is so loved by so many. The movie people oggle over, that I feel doesn’t even come close to the epicness that is Sense and Sensibility. 406 more words


Entitled to Feel Entitled

I never asked to be bitter.  I asked to be, to quote the movie Pride And Prejudice, “completely, and perfectly, and incandescently happy.”  That is not how it has turned out.   1,773 more words

"Sense and Sensibility" - Book Review

Jane Austen never fails to impress me with her vividness of words, engagement of characters, and incitement of plot. Many aspects of “Sense and Sensibility” cannot go unsaid because of how powerful they were in relation to me as a reader.  428 more words


Review - Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice

RATING: 3.0 

Publication date April 19, 2016 by Random House 

I’m a fan of retellings of Jane Austen, whether in books of films. Most of Austen’s writing depends on observations social conventions and the class structure of its time,which is tricky to translate to modern-day traditions.  195 more words

Book Review

The P Word - Piggybacking!

The problem with being an UK author published by a US company with primarily US authors and readers is that I’m always missing Facebook drama when it kicks off. 622 more words
