Because I am participating in the Jane Austen Giveaway Hop last week’s book recommendation post has been bumped to today! Here’s what I recommended on Facebook and Twitter last week!
1. Clockwise by Ellie Strauss. This is a fun contemporary YA about time travel! So you get modern America, pre-Civil War, and a bit of the 1960s. I adore time travel done well.
2. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. This is one of the often overlooked Austen novels. It is so much! I love it.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Great adaptation of Cinderella. You know I love fairy tale adaptations, and Meyer is pretty great at world building. I liked Scarlet even better than Cinder, but you should definitely read Cinder first!
4. The Return of Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I read through all of the Sherlock Holmes novels and short story collections this year. I love so many of the shorts in this collection.
5. Once Upon a Second Chance by Marian Vere. I reviewed this book for Indie Jane last year and was so glad I got the chance. It’s a sweet and fun modern adaptation of Austen’s Persuasion.
