Good Read

If you know of Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice, and are a FAN...you need to read this book! It's Austenland by Shannon Hale. I read it in a day. Short, easy-read, and very entertaining. There were even some moments that I laughed out loud. I've read two others by Shannon Hale, recommended by Emily, and really enjoyed them.

Sounds like a good one. I'm excited to read it. Oh and by the way. I know you probably completely understand what I'm going through with my little one times two! I can't imagine having two to worry about. You're a hero in my book.

I love Shannon Hale! She really is one of my favorite authors, but I was disappointed the way Austenland ended, I thought it defeated the purpose of the book. But it was entertaining, and I remember laughing out loud myself.

Have you read Goose Girl? It is my favorite Shannon Hale book and probably in my top 5 favorite books. I don't remember too much about Austenland, but I do remember her saying something about Colin Firth at the beginning that made me laught out loud.
