Staff Picks - All Things Jane Austen!

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

The Girl from Summer Hill by Jude Deveraux

I love all things Jane Austen! I also enjoy audiobooks for my daily commute up and down 400. While both of these two recently released novels are inspired by Pride and Prejudice, Eligible features a reality-show twist while The Girl from Summer Hill features a novel-within-a-novel as a local theater production acts out the classic roles on stage and off. Some of my older favorites based upon Jane Austen's works include: Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler, Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford, Definitely not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos, Austenland by Shannon Hale, and Me & Mr. Darcy by Alexandra Potter.
