This was an interesting take on P&P. It was fun to see beloved characters again and to really get to know Mary Bennet who is mostly invisible to her family. She visits her sisters and Kitty is also single but has her sight sent on a gentleman. (I was surprised it wasn’t Denny).👶🏼The book starts …

She’s a talented author that beautifully blends in real characters, wisdom and a sweet romance.👩‍🏫At the beginning of the book, Agnes has grown up in Buffalo and loves her best …

So this book is what kickstarted my bookstagram account last year. She got her publisher, Revell, to send me a book for review as an influencer. And I know it’s super corny and lame but that made me feel so cool! At this point I was using Net Galley and starting to review a lot …

I love when books inspire me to paint! I love the Jonquil Family series with Philip as the oldest son to lead them (Regency) and this new series about the Jonquil parents (we love Mater but never got to know the father). This new era – Georgian takes place in the 1780s and was so …

You can never go wrong reading one of @authorsallybritton books! This was a fun take on a Regency. If you ever get tired of reading of balls and men dressed in cravats this is a nice shake up.⛵️Hope, secretly switched places with her twin sister Grace, to go to the Caribbean with neighbors. Grace never …
