    Alas, I have not picked up and read any of these yet though three are on my list already. Thanks for sharing the new arrivals, Meredith!


    These are great lists Meredith but oh my word you would think Austen only wrote P&P and nothing else!!!!!


      It is her most beloved novel for sure! I can definitely recommend the Allie Cresswell series – it focuses just on Emma characters. And I am guessing Emma the Matchmaker is inspired by Emma as well. 😉 But I do agree that it is a shame that books inspired by Jane Austen’s novels are not more popular!


    Wow! Am I behind. I’ve only read three! Thanks for your list!


      It is getting harder and harder to keep up! And I bet you are keeping busy with your students and end of the year fun and performances! 😉


    An average of 40 books a month or so over the last year–no one can keep up with that level of reading. I do hope you get a chance to read the best of them, Meredith, and enjoy all the ones you choose.


      I definitely intend to read a bunch from this list (including yours!!), hopefully some time in 2019! LOL! 😉 Thank you, Suzan, a big congrats on your new release, we wish you all the best!


    Thank you again for another monthly list! I see half a dozen I am interested in reading.


    so many books, so little time–best wishes and happy reading


    Ah, you know it’s real when ‘The List’ comes out. Even though I’ve been making appointments, and buying Birthday and Graduation cards, and (trying) to plan May events, it wasn’t really real that May was right there under our noses….until ‘The List.’ 😀

    I’ve read 1 book from the above list, unless you count book 4 of Jennifer Joy’s books 4-5 set of Meryton Mysteries Series. Then it’s 2 books. I read Christie Capps His Frozen Heart (keeping it in the family.) 😉

    There are 4 books from the above list that are must reads, Suzan Lauder’s, Lory Lillian’s, Jennifer Joy’s, (book 5) and Allie Cresswell’s books. But there are more I’d really like to read someday. Authors I haven’t even tried yet. And you asked if we got much reading done in April and my answer is YES. But it’s still not enough. I’ve got such a TBR pile of truly great reads I’m aching to get to, plus my Wish Lists. And I absolutely forced myself to read something other that JAFF this month in order to give myself a breather (huh? why would you ever want that??) and to attack my other TBR non-JAFF stack. But of the Austenesque books I read this past month 3 of them were quite long, making it more volume than numbers.

    You didn’t say, but I hope you enjoyed your movie! 🙂 And I wish you and Mr Bingley a wonderful May. Now, drum roll please, onto ‘The Agenda.’ Woo hoo, can’t wait.


      Oh, and isn’t that book cover of Rachel John’s book adorable? A lot of great covers this month.


      LOL! It makes me so happy that you always look forward to the list and that it marks the end/start of a month for you, Michelle!

      Yes, you did keep it in the family! LOL! 🙂

      The 4 you selected are brilliant choices, I agree!!

      LOL! (your comment is making me do this a lot!!) Why would you?!? JK, I do occasionally read 1 book outside the genre once in awhile, but I can never go too long without Jane Austen’s characters!

      We did enjoy the movie, it was wonderfully done…I just don’t know if I am at peace with all that took place. (won’t say more, because I don’t want to spoil anything!)

      Yes, I’d really like to check her books out, they seem fun!


    Thank you for sharing your monthly new finds, Meredith. I see there are some new Austenesque works that I have missed. You must have spent lots of time searching, compiling and posting it. I really appreciate your tireless effort.

    Btw, tell me I’m wrong but I think you may have missed this YA P&P book, First Impressions.
