I don’t usually do an IMM post when I only get one book during the week but I decided to make one because Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field by Melissa Nathan is the first book that I bought this year! I was trying to see how long I could hold out but my friends and I dropped by Fully Booked Fort yesterday and I was surprised that this book was actually available because it was out of the stock the other times that I inquired about it. I decided to get it because I was worried I might not be able to find copies later on. Does it count as a purchase even if I used a gift card that I received for Christmas? I’m interested in this one because Janice recommends it and Julie James gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.
Also, I’ve never read a Pride and Prejudice retelling so I wanted to give this one a try. The only other Pride and Prejudice retelling that I’ve read is Austenland by Shannon Hale.
Here’s the summary from Melissa Nathan’s website:
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a large ego must be in want of a woman to cut him down to size …. Sharp, witty journalist Jasmin lands the role of Elizabeth Bennett in a one-off fundraising play adaptation of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. Hollywood heartthrob Harry Noble is playing Mr Darcy, and is every bit as obnoxious as Jasmin could have hoped. This is Jane Austen’s matchless love story with added 21st century fizz.
I’m loving all the pink in that cover. I think it goes well with my current layout. What about you, what’s in your mailbox?
