Austenesque ARC

Hi friends! I love that my quarterly ARC giveaway always falls in November, because it is a month we (mostly Americans) spend reflecting on all we are thankful for, and some of the things I am most thankful – after my Mr. Bingley, family, and health – are Jane Austen, her characters, Austenesque authors, and the wonderful Jane Austen community of readers. I am so grateful for this delightful way to spend my free time and all the wonderful people it connects me with. 🤗❤️

I am also so thankful to the kind friends of this blog who have sent me some books that are searching for new homes!  Thanks for spreading all this book love, friends!

*Since the giveaways of these previously owned books are open just for US readers (sorry friends, international shipping costs sometimes 3x the price of the book), I am hosting a Winner’s Choice ebook option for all our international friends!

There are 6 ARCs/previously owned books and in this giveaway but I’ll choose 7 winners – 6 for the books I’m giving away and 1 who will choose one of the 6 books to receive as an ebook.

All books are in gently used/like new condition.
