Happy Monday, readers! Today, Austenesque Reviews is paid a visit from an author who may be new to some of you – Sue Barr, who just recently published a Pride and Prejudice sequel about Caroline Bingley, titled Caroline, Pride & Prejudice Continued… Book One!  I hope you enjoy meeting Sue and this wonderfully fun post she put together!

Hi readers, I’m excited to share another of my Austenesque Top Ten lists with you today!

For those who haven’t seen this kind of post before, it is where I share some of my all-time favorite Austenesque works.  Sometimes I group them by novel (Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility),  sometimes I group them by sub-genre (Sequels, Modern-day Adaptations), and sometimes I group them by theme (Summer, Halloween). 😉

A year ago I decided I best tackle the most popular novel and sub-genre out there in all of Austenesque…Pride and Prejudice Variations

It is way too hard to pick just 10 favorite Pride and Prejudice variations though, I’ve read hundreds!  So I broke it down a little by years. A year ago I shared my favorite 10 Pride and Prejudice variations from the years 2007-2011. And today I am sharing my favorite Pride and Prejudice variations from 2012-2014.

 

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

**These lists are subject to change.
