THIS IS BOOK #3 IN THE SERIES! (#3 to be published but not actually 3rd in series)
The author’s note found at the beginning of the book Emmalee explains that the books were published slightly out of order. It’s not a huge deal since each book has different main characters. The chronological order is Pride & Popularity, Persuaded, Emmalee, Mansfield Ranch (not yet published), Northanger Alibi, and Sense & Sensational (not yet published).
Book 1- Pride & Popularity- MY REVIEW
Book 2- Northanger Alibi- MY REVIEW
Jane Austen’s Persuasion was my favorite of her books so it was really fun to read this modern retelling. Like I always say, I LOVE retellings.
Amanda, the main character, was very true to the personality of Jane Austen’s character. She was belittled and unappreciated by her family and friends which made her reserved and unsure of herself. It seemed more sad in a modern setting for some reason. I really felt for Amanda, but sometimes I just wanted to yell, “stand up for yourself girl!”
The romantic story line was so intriguing and frustrating. Gregory moved back 3 years after Amanda turned him down because her friends thought he was a ‘nerd’ or something. Now he was a hottie and her friends didn’t even recognize him as the same guy. There was lots of denial and hidden feelings happening throughout the story, but it was all so entertaining. I really enjoyed it!
The Jane Austen Diaries are fun and romantic reads! I can’t wait for them all to come out, and then I’ll read them all over again.
