Front and back interior covers have this 60’s looking floral print. It doesn’t really compliment the journal, in my opinion.

Made by Canterbury Classics, a Baker and Taylor trademark.

Other titles I’d like to see added:

  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • The H.G. Wells Collection>>>individual titles would not make a long enough journal, in my opinion.

I don’t know what I’ll use this journal for right now. I like picking it up and looking at it.

Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James

Summary:

A murder has taken place on Pemberley grounds. Wickham is the main suspect. Life as Darcy and Elizabeth know it has become chaos. Will this finally rid them of the troublesome Wickham and Lydia?

Opinion:

My summary sucks, but other websites will have better summaries. I was disappointed with this book. Intro chapters regarding the Bennetts and Lizzie’s relationship with Darcy prior to their marriage are written in such a tone that it could be assumed the author was nothing more than a vicious gossip. Colonel Fitzwilliam’s character is quite different than in P&P. He’s almost hateful and scornful in regards to Georgianna. Doesn’t read like Austen. I’ve read fan-fiction that was more genuine. Points of view skip around, not thrilled about that. Very cynical overtones.

Would not recommend this book.

Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford

Summary:

Jane Austen has been turned into a vampire by another literary great. She has successfully continued to live around the world undetected. Her world is completely turned upside down when a book she’s been working on for the past two centuries gets published cans the vampire that turned her shows up.

Opinion:

I didn’t find this book particularly interesting. It is the first book in a series. Will not complete the series. Not recommended.

Jane and the Damned by Janet Mullany

Summary:

Our beloved Jane Austen has been turned into a vampire. The entire Austen family heads toBath, where lies the only known cure. Napoleon’s troops invade, take over the city, and make their way across the island. It is up to Jane and the rest of the Damned to defeat the French and drive them out of the country.

Opinion:

Surprisingly pleased. I’ve read a few biographies on Jane Austen and enjoyed the parallels. Had to keep reminding myself that Mr. Darcy wasn’t going to show up and save the day. I did enjoy the book, but it didn’t end the way I expected. Recommend.
