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). 😉

Today’s list is for all of those who enjoy traveling through time and imagining themselves in Jane Austen’s world!  Whether it is time travel, time-slip, body-swap, or some other phenomena – I thought it would be fun to share my favorite Austenesque Time Travel novels.  I hope you enjoy!!

 

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

Another Place in Time

Author: Mary Lydon Simonsen

Type of Novel: Time Travel/Time Slip

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

My Review   I   Add to Cart   I   Add to Shelf

“Through Ms. Simonsen’s vivid descriptions and informative prose, I was able to see, feel, taste, smell, and breathe in 1812 in Another Place in Time. What a fantastic trip! Ms. Simonsen doesn’t need advancements in science or sophisticated technology, she can travel through time with her mighty pen!” Continue reading »

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.

Filled with soul-searching, slow-paced exhilaration, and sweeping romance, Cassandra Grafton’s A Fair Prospect is definitely one of my favorites!”

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

As you might have guessed, I’m a big fan of modern-day retellings!  I love seeing Darcy and Lizzy in our contemporary world – it’s always fun to see what professions or interests authors like to give these characters.  Plus, it’s often a hoot to see modern-day representations of Mr. Collins, Lydia Bennet, and Caroline Bingley!  So much fun!

Overall, I’ve read 54 Austenesque Modern Adaptations, and 33 of them are modern Pride and Prejudice adaptations!

That’s quite a lot!  And many of them were fantastic 4.5 or 5 star reads.  It was not easy to pick only 10 top favorites…but I did, and here they are! 😀
