So I'm continuing with my theme of finding books for "Lost in Austen".  This week I bought the first book in two series that are considered young adult Austen spin-offs.  While I am certain that the Jane Austen Diaries series is considered young adult I'm not so sure about Darcy & Friends.  How do I know for sure?


Pride and Popularity (The Jane Austen Diaries #1) by Jenni James
The Importance of Being Emma (Darcy & Friends #1) by Juliet Archer

  2. Looks like you got some good books. I LOVED The Statistical Prob...! I don't remember if you saw my review of Gated. Interesting read. I also reviewed The Boyfriend App on the blog a while back. There were a couple of things that bothered me and if it wouldn't have had those things I would have really liked it. I keep forgetting to come check to see how you've been liking your Austen spin-off books. Have you loved any of them so far?

  14. Oh wow! Such a GREAT haul!! I loved The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. I listened to the audio, so that may have been why... but it was amazing. I really enjoyed The Boyfriend App too. It was cute. I liked Golden, but I was definitely the odd man out there because most people absolutely adored it. I hope you love it! I'm listening to Gated right now on audio, and it's pretty good. I'm liking the second half more than the first. I've heard a lot of awesome things about The Bone Season... I'm thinking about getting it myself, perhaps on audio. (Can you tell I love my audios?! :D) I've really had my eyes on the Ashes Trilogy too... it sounds really good. I hope you enjoy all of your goodies this week!! :)

    1. I've listened to a few audiobooks. I'm not the biggest fan, but it may be the narrators that I had. If my commute were longer, I'm sure I would listen to them more. ~Pam

  20. I love the look of your books from the library! So many there I want to read - like Golden and The Boyfriend App.

    The Austen inspired books look great. I love the miniseries Lost in Austen and most new takes on her classic novels.

    1. I've really been trying to get books from the library lately. I used to just go to Amazon and buy everything, but now I check first at the library and most of the time I get the books in a week or so. Not the instant gratification of the one-click button, but it helps money-wise. ~Pam

  21. Out of your list, I've only heard about Gated and the Bone Season. There are glowing reviews about them. I hope you enjoy them too.

    Happy reading!
