AustenesqueTopTen

I think it time for another Austenesque Top Ten list, don’t you?

My first Austenesque Top Ten list was for my ten favorite Austenesque novels to read around Halloween.  Today’s Top Ten list includes my ten favorite Austenesque novels inspired by Sense and Sensibility.

So if you are a fan of Elinor and Marianne and want to know what novels I’d recommend, check out the list below!

* These lists are based only on the novels I have read and are my top ten favorites.

**These lists are subject to change.

Jane Odiwe’s ‘Willoughby’s Return’ is the only one on your list that I’ve read, but I read that one because I like author. I hope to read Caldwell’s book soon.

FUN!!! The only one I can recommend that isn’t on your list is Rifts and Restorations by Eucharista Ward. It’s not as good as her Mary Bennet story, but it does provide a very different and imaginative continuation from Margaret’s perspective. Have you read it? I think I remember having a hard time finding it.

I’ve just put Rifts and Restorations by Eucharista Ward on my wish list! Thanks for the recommendation!

Jane Odiwe’s books are some of my favourite Austen inspired novels. I haven’t read this one but I intend to get it now! Thanks for a great list!

(I also have the screenplay and diaries and love them – Alan Rickman was hilarious!)

I have read both of Jane Odiwe’s books and loved them. I read ‘Expectations of Happiness’ which I liked but initially had a hard time getting into. I loved Jack’s ‘Three Colonels’. I do want to get and read Beth’s book and Amanda’s. They are on my wishlist!

Lilyane Soltz

“Willoughby’s Return” and “The Dashwood Sisters Tell All” were both wonderful reads and, indeed, worthy of five stars. Next up for me is “The Three Colonels”. Thank you for every one of your lists – I’ve loved them all!

I love your lists Meredith! Your review inspired me to buy one of these, the Rebecca Ann Collins one, so hopefully I’ll enjoy it as much as you did 🙂

Sophia Rose

I’ve read three of those and loved them (3 Colonels, Col Brandon’s Diary and S&S Movie book). I just bought Sass and Serendipity on clearance for less than $2 at the Book Outlet if anyone is interested in checking out the sale. And those I don’t have are already on my wish list. 😉 Thanks for sharing your list, Meredith.

I’ve read 8 of the 10. However, I will have to really look over my personal notes in order to figure out what I appreciated about each one. Sensing Jane Austen doesn’t really appeal to me but the modern day might. Great choices.

Teresa

I haven’ t read any of the top ten but I think “Expectations of happiness” and “Willougbhy’ s return” seem to be a very good choice!. By the way, happy holidays in England! 🙂

Catherine Commons

I’m surprised to realize I have 7 of your top 10. I’ve gotten so enthralled with P&P that recently I’ve neglected S&S. I just received The Three Colonels by Jack Caldwell, so will start reading it right away. I will probably reread some others after seeing your ratings. I always trust your reviews, Meredith!
Hope you and Mr Bingley are having a wonderful time in England.

I have the Jane Odiwe book and I’ve read the Amanda Grange book. I really like their books. I have a book by Rebecca Collins, but it’s the Women of Pemberley. I’d like to read the Victoria Connelly and Jack Caldwell books (and maybe the others if they were to drop down in front of me!). I have A Weekend with Mr. Darcy by Victoria Connelly. I think it’s the first Austenesque book that I won a few years ago.
