Audiobook Review: THE SECRET DIARIES OF LIZZIE BENNET by Bernie Su and Kate Rorick

Lizzie’s “secret” diary written during the timeline of the videos! Squee!   I might be a teensy bit obsessed with Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The number of times I’ve read the book can’t be counted–I’ve got it in paperback (three copies, I think? No, wait–four. We have the LBD version too), hardcover (twice, at least), digital (two copies? three? not sure), and on audio (again, twice. Not sure why). I’ve owned two copies of the 1995 BBC classic on DVD (two words: COLIN FIRTH), and one of the Keira Knightley one (it’s definitely not the most true-to-the-original version, but…

Roman Díaz doesn’t do love. It hasn’t worked out for him. He could never survive trying to live with his heart wide open the way Ashley Bowman does. But it’s hard to keep his walls up around this woman. Every mile he spends in her power leaves him more ravaged by memories and emotions he can’t control—and drags him closer to succumbing…

Week in Review: What I’m Reading (10-11-2013)

While watching the latest version of Emma with Mini Moe #2 to get ready for the first two episodes of Emma Approved (latest offering from Pemberley Digital, the lovely people who brought us The Lizzie Bennett Diaries), I was suddenly struck with an idea for my NaNo novel. (This is huge, because it usually doesn’t happen until panic mode has set in, somewhere around October 31st. If at all.) For whatever reason, I was fixated on Jane Fairfax this time around, and just how rotten Frank Churchill treats her. To be fair, it does usually bother me, but this time I…
