If You Love Jane Austen . . .

I had seen this book at the store, but some reason I had decided not to purchase it. Well, last week I sent Dustin to the store to pick some things up and he returned with this book for me! I was a bit skeptical at first, but I really enjoyed this book. It brings Jane Austen to life and makes you feel like you KNOW her. I hope that she had an experience like the one in this book. I have often felt sad for Jane that she never married. She wrote about love so it must have at times been difficult for her knowing that she never had her Mr. Darcy. Maybe she did, she just kept it a great secret. If you are an Austen fan than this is the book for you!

P.S. It is fiction. The author does a wonderful job of weaving things into her life from her books.

Stardust

I'm currently reading Stardust by Neil Gaiman. Dustin and I watched the movie and really liked it so I'm currently reading the book that inspired the movie. You might think that this is a kids book, but it's not. There has already been a ummm questionable sex scene and the f-bomb. Other than that the book is great so far. It reminds me of The Princess Bride, but not as good. I still recommend at least seeing the movie if you haven't yet.
