Well, it has taken a quite a bit of time, but here it is…finally!  The Pride and Prejudice Comprehensive Guide for Novels published in 2012.  It looks like I barely scratched the surface with my reviews this year! LOL!  There are so many new releases, it is hard to keep up!

I hope you will find this list helpful, please let me know if I am missing anything (if I am, it was not intentional).  It is getting a little harder to keep up with all the new releases.  Especially since a lot of them come out as eBooks only and those are not as prominent on my radar.

If you want to see more lists, go HERE.  I’ve been busy the last two weeks giving make-overs to all previous lists!  I hope they look improved!

Of the novels I haven’t read, which do you recommend?  Do you have a favorite from 2012?

    Hi, I’m reading “Imperative” by Linda Wells. I suggest you to label it also with “MA” because it is quite descriptive in love scenes between Lizzy and Darcy.



    Oh my! I have a lot to catch up on too it seems. I’ve only read three that are on your list that you haven’t, but they weren’t ones that struck me as worth recommending so I’ll leave it right there.

    My favorite on the list of the ones I’ve read is Three Colonels. I do look forward to the Mary Simonsen Darcy Goes to War, but I’m dreadfully behind.

    Amazing work on your list there.


      There are three books on my TBR from this list (Mr. Darcy’s Refuge, The Disappearance of Georigiana Darcy, and All My Tomorrows). Hopefully I’ll be able to get to them soon! I agree with you about Three Colonels! It is phenomenal! 🙂


    I love the new list. I look forward to these and so each and every time it gives me something to look forward to using.


    Awesome Meredith! These lists must be absolutely daunting to compile at this point. May I make a push for inclusions of my short story, Emma & Elton? Thanks once again for continuing to provide this wonderful resource!


    Thanks for taking your time in making this huge list. I appreciate the great effort you make to give us notice about the Lizzie and Darcy’ s books. And thanks to your reviews I’ m improving my english a lot!. Teresa.


      It is my pleasure, Teresa! I’m so happy that this blog is helpful to you! That is my main goal here! Your English is great! Estoy trabajando en mi español un poquito!


    Thanks for making this list, Meredith! I’m sure it’s a lot of work!
    I would recommend Mr. Darcy’s refuge (but that’s already on your list, there are some lovely romantic scenes in there. I also liked Mr. Darcy goes to war, wonderful transition of P&P to WWII.


      So glad to hear you would recommend MDR, makes me even more excited to read it! And I’d love to read Mr. Darcy’s Goes to War, it sounds wonderful! 🙂


    One of my obsession is to save the book covers so it is easier to see which ones are on my list. I notice that you incorrectly name An Unexpected Lady by Lelia Silverman as An Expected Lady.

    Great list, btw, Meredith.
