Weekend Bookblogging: Groaning Shelves Edition


Amongst all these musicals and plays of Jane Austen’s novels, there are still plenty of books being published of interest to Janeites–and keeping our reviewers busy!

One of the books we picked up at the JASNA AGM was In the Garden with Jane Austen by Kim Wilson, a followup to her lovely Tea with Jane Austen. The Wisconsin State Journal has a short article about it. Stay tuned for an AustenBlog review in the next few weeks.

We heard from Jane Odiwe, whose Lydia Bennet’s Story is now available in bookshops and online. Look for a review of this title soon as well.

We also heard from C. Allyn Pierson, whose new book And This Our Life: Chronicles of the Darcy Family: Book 1 is now available. We received a review copy, so look for this one as well, and lots more!

And while we’re on the subject of Nice Books…Go Gothic With Northanger Abbey continues at Austenprose. The Editrix contributed her humble mite, a salute to Da Man (naturally), and there’s lots of discussion and giveaways and other stuff going on. Do check it out!

That’s it for Weekend Bookblogging this week, Gentle Readers, and always remember: Books Are Nice!
