A few months ago I read another one of Lisa See's books, Shanghai Girls. I really enjoyed the book and I've been meaning to read more by her, so I was delighted to be given the chance. This book has been made into a movie (it comes out later this summer) so hopefully I'll have the book read in time to see the movie in theaters.
A Wife for Mr. Darcy by Mary Lydon Simonsen
Call it a crime, but I've never read Pride & Prejudice, or anything else by Jane Austen for that matter. I do plan on eventually tackling them though, so have no fear for my soul. I have at least seen the movies and am familiar with the basic stories. There's been tons of books written as almost "companion" books to Jane Austen's works, and I always thought it'd be fun to try one out. I've never known where to start though, but it looks like at least this decision has been made for me.
