Are the Ms. Darcy ones related to Jane Austen's Darcy at all? I have all 3 twilight books at my bedside waiting for me to finish the political one I am reading. I am no help. But if you haven't read the Jen Lancaster hilarious biographies you must. Have you read The Girls? I liked it.

Celia Fae said...

She can't read the Jen Lancaster. Bad words remember?

When I saw your title I was sure you'd come up with something extra creative. Fun.

Suggestions: scriptures, Ensign, my Sunday School lesson. Get to work.

Nor said...

Yeah, you're keeping your G rating. Might as well rate you c.1880.

Nor said...

real time, celia!

I only read blogs, so I am no help.

So you are ready for me to deliver "Austenland," then? I would describe this book as "Super fun, I was so sad when it was done."

I'm waiting for the new Shannon Hale book to come out this week called "Book of a Thousand Days." I will let you know how that one goes. My sister has recommended "The Book Thief" to me with rave reviews.

Oh, if you are interested, there are a few more Elizabeth Aston "Darcy daughters" books. Of course their stories are all very similar but that is why you keep reading them, huh?

Are you up for a lunch date this week (or next) at my house? Kids, of course, are welcome.

Ilene said...

Oh, I have "Eclipse" ready for you to read too.

"Christy" - G-rated and about a teacher in the Appalachian mountains in early 1900's

"Watership Down" - also G-rated excellent book about a bunch of rabbits (description does not do the book justice)

"The Awakening" - Kate Chopin

Anything by James Michener - usually dense, but well-written and good reads - if you like historical fiction

If you like mysteries, Anne Perry has written 2 series of books (the Pitt series and the Monk series) both of which are excellently researched, written and read very quickly

and a million others - I am not a huge popular fiction fan but I have a thousand favorites I can recommend not written in the last decade and still worth reading

"Austenland" is a lot of fun. Did you ever read "Savage Garden" by the same guy who wrote "Amagansett"? Very very good. Also "Love Walked In" by Maria de los Santos is a fav.

Paige said...

Tell Ilene I will be there for the playdate. And I'll bring my timid children to wreck her house.

Wish I could read as much as you do. Love East of Eden. Anything by Adrianna Trigiani (Grandma Romney is a fan too, so you know it is clean!)

Ryan said...

Not true ...
Grandma told me about some R rated movie that she liked one time and I said, "wasn't that an "R" Grandma?" and she said ... "Yes it was, but I didn't believe it so I had to check it out for myself." That lady is fun.

Have all you Austen fans read Pam Aidan's series? They are here - http://wytherngatepress.com/books/

Pam Aidan is actually Pamela Mogen, the librarian here in Liberty Lake... and I've had people who are Austen fans say her books are quite good.

I am guessing that they meet the 'G" rating too ;)

Ilene said...

Oh, I've read the Aiden series. It was entertaining and the best of the "Darcy" stories that I have read. Sometimes a little too cheesy (dare I even say that as a fan of the Twilight series?). But totally "G" rated.
