Austenland by Shannon Hale

This is more of a three and a half star book, but one worth rounding up to four rather than down to three. Chick-lit isn’t really my thing, but I like to read a good one every now and again for a quick read that I can just enjoy without having to think too much. And of course, this one has to do with Austen, so I decided to give it a shot.

To sum it up, it was really cute. I know that’s not a literary term, but it really says it all. The narrator was easy to relate to, especially in terms of her feelings about Pembrook Park – a little embarrassed to be playing dress up, but still wanting to get lost in the fantasy anyways. It was fairly predictable, although it did have a couple nice little twists at the end. I think I smiled all the way through the last couple of chapters, which is always a good sign. I probably looked like a grinning idiot to everyone else at the lunch table at work, oh well! If you want something fluffy and fun, I would highly recommend this one.

  1. Ah, this one I have picked up before but never bought because I just wasn’t sure about it. “Really cute” works for me; sometimes that’s just what I need.
