Pride & Prejudice + Eligible

The last book in the Austen Project finally has a cover image! I have been waiting around for this one for a while so I am glad we finally have something new about the book.  

Sense and Sensibility by Joanna Trollope was a good start but with each new book, I found myself enjoying the series less and less.  That is just me though and the opinions on each book really vary.


The book will be coming out April 19th, 2016.

******************************************************************


Eligible
by Curtis Sittenfeld

When Mr. Bennett falls ill, Elizabeth and Jane leave their lives in New York and return to their old home in Cincinnati.

However, they come home to find that their old house is falling apart and that their other sisters Mary, Kitty and Lydia are largely absent and more concerned with their own lives.  Mrs. Bennett too is more focused on marrying off each one of her daughters.

Jane and Elizabeth realize that a lot has changed since they left. There is even a new Doctor in town named Chip Bingley, who recently starred in a reality dating show.  At a holiday barbecue, Chip and Jane meet and their connection is instant.  

Elizabeth is happy for her sister but less happy when she meets Chip's friend, Fitzwilliam Darcy.
