Abigail Bok (regency_reader) Steaming right along, Sheila! At least you didn’t waste too much time on the disappointing one.


message 8: by Anji (last edited Jan 03, 2018 12:55AM) (new)

Anji | 291 comments At least No. 3 made up for the disappointment of No. 2! We all now know to avoid that one. Taking a hit for the team!

Nick Imrie (nickimrie) Good job keeping up the pace!

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments Thanks.


message 16: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 1246 comments I had looked at your #9 but passed on it because I get easily bored with books about teenagers. Now that I'm not around many of them anymore, I don't relate. Judging from your review and rating, probably the right choice for me.

But hey! Another notch in your Austenesque belt! Good for you, Sheila!


message 17: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments It was just a matter of "I downloaded it so I am going to read it"...but if a book is really bad or offensive, I will put it down and not finish it. Others might like it and the author did not deserve that I would ignore it when I got it for free.

message 21: by Abigail (new)

Abigail Bok (regency_reader) Really steaming along, Sheila! Hope you get some 5-star reads soon!


message 22: by Mary (new)

Mary | 245 comments Great progress,Sheila!🎉👏


message 23: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 1246 comments Yes, Abigail's right... You're due a 5-star book real soon!


message 24: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments Come February I will rejoin KU and maybe some of those I have been saving to read under that membership will fit the bill. I am just attempting to read all those just sitting on my Kindle unread...over 50 unread stories at my last count. Some are NOT JAFF.


message 25: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 1246 comments Only 50?? I've got LOTS more than that unread on mine!! You go, girl!


message 26: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments I have been reading those for the last 1.5 months so the count has gone down. There are lots of unpublished ones on a list I have that others (inc. you) have recommended as 4 or 5 star reads so I count those separately. Then there are the paperbacks I have from back before I got my kindle which I read but wasn't posting reviews at that time. I want to reread those and post reviews. And part of that is the 27 paperbacks I won as the blog prize for The Darcy Monologues. I promised myself to reread those in honor of winning. I have done so with some but not all.


message 27: by Elin (new)

Elin Eriksen (vaarin) | 545 comments I have 50 something, unread on my kindle too but 96 on Bookmate that I need to reread in order to add a review here so I can keep track of what I have read and which I want to add to my kindle before unsubscribing Bookmate.
Much more fun to read new ones though...


message 28: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments Yes, that was the problem with me...new ones kept calling to me. So I quit KU as to eliminate that voice. Will rejoin to read all those in February but making a little dent in my unread ones.


message 32: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 1246 comments Hmmm... Still none worth 5 stars, I see!


message 33: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments 16.) Swimming in Rain 4 stars


message 34: by Dana (new)

Dana (danarlynn) | 118 comments Wonderful list! I just finished Sketching Character today, and I loved it!


message 35: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments Thank you - that is a good one.

As Debbie says, "Only 50?" I guess I'm storing up the several hundred on my TBR list (and constantly adding to it faster than I can read them) against the day I retire and don't have the disposable income I have now. Wish I could retire AND have the income!


message 38: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments 18.) Mansfield 5 stars


message 39: by Abigail (new)

Abigail Bok (regency_reader) Yay! A five-star read for you at last.


message 40: by Debbie (new)

Debbie (dmbrown) | 1246 comments Well, considering the author, odds for 5 stars was pretty high! I've been meaning to re-read that soon. Nice choice, Sheila!


message 41: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments Yes, I do want to read her Persuaded.


message 43: by Sheila (new)

message 45: by Nick (new)

Nick Imrie (nickimrie) Thanks for the warning! Was it very terrible?

Yes, ODC did NOT have a HEA which for me is supposed to be a guarantee in JAFF variations.

22.) Darcy's Choice: A Pride and Prejudice Variation 1 star ...by the same author and the first story in this book is the one above.


message 47: by Sheila (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments 23.) Jane Austen in Blue Jeans 4 stars (not really a JAFF book)


message 48: by Sheila (last edited Jan 19, 2018 08:36AM) (new)

Sheila Majczan (sheilalmajczan) | 1321 comments 24.) Darcy's Bodie Mine: A Pride & Prejudice Western Variation 4.5 stars: not yet published so there is no link. This book takes Darcy and Lizzy and drops them into Bodie, California in 1878. Gold rush times. Lizzy is a singer in a saloon.
