Kirk (goodreadscomkirkc) | 789 comments Welcome Mr Knightley!!!! Great great choice! Lol, he is my favorite Austen male... although sadly in real life I'm more likely his grumpy brother John.

True, lots of Georges with a good seasoning of the rest would be just right. :)

Splendid, Anji! We can't know what real life will bring, but its always fun to make goals and go for them. :)

Some of those have such clever titles. Love it! Oh, the Walking Tour, Brave Jane, and Transatlantic Sister look good.

Ah, you really didn't stay long on your visit with our Mr. Knightley, but he's a gentleman through and through so he understands.
Fantastic start to the year, Kirk! :)

Ha, yes, that would be dry reading, for sure. Glad there's more to it. I'll let you get back to your surreptitious nap in the deep winged chair by the fire.

Thanks!!! Lol...many of them probably aren't worth your 5-15 min reading time. And I went wild with non P&P ones a couple of days ago. :)

Thanks. Hard to say if i want to stay here or go visit Mr. Darcy. I noticed Elizabeth does not have her own level so I'm assuming she shares Mr. Darcy's library. LOL!

Debbie (dmbrown) | 1246 comments I've been reading a bunch but have had no time to write reviews on the most recent books, as you'll see in this list. I'll try to get reviews up sometime in the not-too-distant future.

I'm in the middle of three weeks of Hunchback of Notre Dame performances. Just in the choir that supports the production, but it's still taking up a lot of time and I haven't been able to get in much computer time!

Anyway, here goes:

51. Darcy's Bodie Mine: A Pride & Prejudice Western Variation - 3 stars
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

52. A Life Apart: A Darcy and Elizabeth Pride and Prejudice Variation - 2 stars
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

53. Breathe Like You - 4 stars
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

54. Northern Rain: A North & South Variation - NOT JAFF - 5 stars

55. Building Mr. Darcy - 4.5 stars

56. The Rose and the Mask: A Beauty and the Beast Retelling - NOT JAFF - 5 stars

57. News Comes to Pemberley - 2 stars
https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

58. The Forgotten Bonnet: A Sweet Pride and Prejudice Variation Short Story - 4 stars

59. One Good Gentleman: Rules of Refinement Book One - sort of JAFF - 5 stars

60. Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth: London in Love: a Pride and Prejudice Variation Romance - 3.5 stars
