Books to Read if You Loved – Pride and Prejudice

First of all, isn’t this graphic pretty? I’m proud of myself, but can’t take the credit. I recently heard of a site called Canva. Go check it out. You can use it free for personal use, or there is a pro version.

If you’re like me and enjoy Jane Austen’s books, I’d like to share with you a few spin-off, or fan fic titles I enjoyed. I’ve read all of these – not stinkers in the bunch.

These are in no particular order. Some may contain affiliate links.

One Thread Pulled: The Dance with Mr. Darcy by Diana J Oaks

It’s a long book, but I really liked it. It was great spending more time with each character.

Pride: A Pride and Prejudice Remix by Ibi Zoboi

Such a fun retelling

Caroline Bingley or Mary Bennett, a novella by Jennifer Becton

The author does wonderful spinoffs. I enjoyed both very much.

Four Stars

As you can see by the length of the title, only 122 pages, the reader is in for a short, sweet love story.

Readers who trudge through long, heavy titles should seek out books like these. They are a perfect reading ‘snack’ in between those exhausting books.

Emily and Olivia have traveled across country to find Emily’s Uncle Jules. Olivia knows she needs to make sure the little girl is safe and settled… and then leave. It’s the leaving that is the tough part.

Jules is single. He has no plans to marry, his house hasn’t even been started yet. He can’t take care of a little girl. He certainly shouldn’t think about a wife!

Oh, so sweet and lovely. I really appreciated the fun ranch hand characters and the episodes of eager men who came courting. I will check out more titles by Cheryl St. John. She has many!! There is even a nonfiction book on writing.
