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.

The Darcy and Bingleys by Marsha Altman

The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy by Maya Slater

Searching for Pemberley by Mary Simonsen

Haunting Mr. Darcy by KaraLynne Mackrory

Austenland by Shannon Hale

Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo^

^ this book doesn’t seem to be available on ebook, sorry!

I will randomly select a winner for each book + 1 international winner for a winner’s choice ebook.

    Another generous giveaway! Thanks, Meredith! I’d love to have “The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy”, “Searching for Pemberley”, or “Haunting Mr. Darcy”.


    Yay, for another ARC giveaway. I would love “Haunting Mr. Darcy” or Searching for Pemberley”. Thanks Meredith


    I would choose Austenland, Haunting Mr.Darcy, or The Private Diary of Mr.Darcy. I love seeing good books find new homes.


    I have not yet read Searching for Pemberley, The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy or The Darcys and the Bingleys. I would put my preference for those in the order I wrote them. Good luck to the other readers. And thanks for the give away, Meredith.


    I’d love Austenland or The Private DIary of Mr. Darcy.


    I’ve always wanted to read Haunting Mr. Darcy.


    I have Marsh Altman’s and Mary Simonsen’s print books. I would really love The Haunting or Mr. Darcy, but any will do. Jen Red


    Austenland by Shannon Hale

    thanks for the chance


    I would love to win The Private Diary of Mr Darcy or Searching for Pemberley or Jane Austen Ruined My Life! The others I already own, much to my surprise. Thank you so much for the giveaway!


    Searching for Pemberley would be wonderful and Jane Austen ruined my life. Thanks for this lovely feature and giveaway.


    I would be thrilled to win either Mr. Darcy’s Diary or Searching for Pemberly. Thank you for a chance to win one.


    I would love to win The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy or Jane Austen Ruined My Life. Thanks for the giveaway!


    I’m in Canada, hence an International. Could I wait to see if I win before making a difficult choice among the books? It is so generous of you to offer this giveaway.


    What a wonderful choice of books! Please don’t enter me in the drawing for I have so many still to read on my kindle and I am certain I have most of these. Good luck to those in the drawing.


    I love your ARC giveaways and would be interested in the following books in order of preference: Searching for Pemberley, Austenland, Haunting Mr. Darcy, The Darcys and Bingleys, Jane Austen Ruined My Life and The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy.


    Hi, I am na international reader and would like to win aan ebook. Either The Darcys and the Bingleys or The Private Diary of Mr Darcy.


    Hi Meredith! I would love a copy of ”Austenland’. I’m in the UK. Great selection btw – I’d heard of some of them but not all.


    Any of the books offered would be wonderful!


    I would love Mary Simonsen’s Searching for Pemberley.
    Thank you so much for this giveaway.


    Your giveaways are so much fun 🙂 I love Haunting Mr. Darcy, but Searching for Pemberley and The Secret Diary of Mr. Darcy look good too!


    What a great collection! Austenland is one of my favorites <3 I haven't heard of Searching for Pemberley or Haunting Mr. Darcy. Excited to read those!


    Lovely giveaway! I’ve read all of these except for The Darcys and Bingleys, so that would be my choice.


    Thanks for hosting another wonderful giveaway…I’d love to read Haunting Mr Darcy or Searching for Pemberley..


    I would love Searching For Pemberley.


    Thank you, Meredith, for a lovely giveaway!

    I would be thrilled to read Haunting Mr. Darcy – – I haven’t read or heard of that one.


    I would love either the haunting of mr darcy or mr darcy’s diary thank you very much


    Haunting Mr Darcy, please!


    I could read any of these, but “Haunting Mr. Darcy” or Searching for Pemberley” are at the top of my list.


    Hello! I would be absolutely ecstatic with any of them, but if I have to pick one, I choose Jane Austen Ruined my Life. Again, though, I would be ecstatic with any of them so I would like to be considered for any one of them. Thank you!


    That is a nice list to be thankful for, Meredith. It’s pretty close to my own. 🙂
    Thanks to your friends who donated.

    If I won, I would like either The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy or Haunting Mr. Darcy. Thanks for the opportunity!


    Hi Meredith. Thank you so much for this giveaway. I really love P & P and it is so hard to choose. My first choice is the haunting of Mr Darcy. Followed by the Darcy’s and Bingley’s, and last The private diary of Mr Darcy.


    Thank you for this generous giveaway. I would love to be entered for Jane Austen Ruined My Life, Haunting Mr Darcy, or The Private Diary of Mr Darcy.


    The Private Diary of Mr Darcy & The Darcy’s and the Bingleys. Both are on my wishlist 🙂


    Thank you for this opportunity to win a book inspired by Jane Austen. My choice would be Jane Austen Ruined My Life. Best wishes to you and all the winners.


    Many thanks for your kind generosity. Not having read any of these books I would be grateful for any one of them. Altho’ I confess that I don’t know how you manage to part with books you’ve enjoyed!


      That’s great that you have all these books to discover and read for the first time. 🙂

      Oh I definitely can’t do that, Janis. Any book I part with is because it is a second copy of a book I own. 🙂 I believe some of the donors also have second copies of some of these books, perhaps on ebook and choose to donate the paperback due to lack of space on their bookshelves. 😉


    I would love to win any of these lovely tales. Thank you for the opportunity. 🙂


    Would love to win the ebook of The Darcy and Bingleys by Marsha Altman. The cover on its own is tempting me ;D


    Haunting Mr Darcy or Searching for Pemberley. Thanks!! I love your blog!


    My top three of these would be:

    The Darcy and the Bingleys by Marsha Altman
    The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy by Maya Slater
    Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo

    Haven’t read ang of these and would love to. Thank you for a chance to win!


    I’ve read Austenland, but would love to have any of the rest. If I had to pick one I especially wanted, it would be Haunting Mr. Darcy, but, as I said, any of the others except Austenland will be very much appreciated!!

    Thank you, Meredith, for your generous giveaways!!

    Susanne 🙂


    Haunting Mr. Darcy is my first choice. Others I’d be interested in winning: the Maya Slater book or Beth Pattillo book. (I think I have the Marsha Altman book and I think I won Austenland from you a few years ago.)


    The Darcy’s and Bingley’s for me should I win!!
