Kirsten  (kmcripn) Finished listening to Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie yesterday. A romantic ghost story inspired by Henry James' classic novella The Turn of the Screw.

Other books I've read (off the top of my head) inspired by classics were Megan Shepherd trilogy:

1) The Madman’s Daughter inspired by The Island of Dr. Moreau

2) Her Dark Curiosity inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

3) A Cold Legacy inspired by Frankenstein

Leslie | 825 comments Oh, I listened to the audiobook of Dodger - inspired by Dickens' Oliver Twist (clearly!)... it was fun but Oliver Twist is a better book.
