    Thank you for the review, Tressa.

  2. I do and I can't wait to read this one!

  3. Looks like a sweet book, and I always like new approaches to books by Jane Austen.
    By the way, you have a very pretty blog! :-)
    Thanks for visiting Literaria.

  4. I like to read retakes on Jane Austen's work, I like how someone else puts a twist on the story. I have a few on my kindle but I cannot remember the names of them at this moment.

  5. Aw, this one sounds sweet, as does some of the other Mormon novels I've read about. Someday I'll have to read them. :)

    No, I really don't want to be able to see the future. Now if I were a time traveler, it would be a bit different, but I still wouldn't want to see MY future.....

    Like fairy tale retellings, I'm intrigued by new works on old tales. I like what Cheryl said - putting a twist on the story. It's interesting to see how the original has evolved, and in this case, been modernized.

  9. This sounds like such a fun read. I like twists to old favorites.

  14. I loved Persuasion, and I am really looking forward to this one and Emma. I love these types of books. I am really looking forward to reading this.

  15. I love retellings, especially those of Jane Austen novels that have been modernized. Well of Jane Austen novels as a whole.

  16. I have not completed a Jane Austen book yet but have a bunch on my Kindle to read.

  17. I like that this book will appeal to people of all faiths. Of course I also like Jane Austen retellings, so I will definitely take another look at this book.
