1.) Reasons you chose this book
I have often dreamed of being married to Mr. Darcy, so whenever there is an Austen rendition I feel compelled to read it!
2.) Reasons you liked or disliked this book
- "Christmas Present" by Amanda Grange- I enjoyed this holiday version where the Darcy's are celebrating the season with a ball at the Bingley's. It was nice to see all of the characters in a different sort of setting. There were no surprises, but the love between Elizabeth and Darcy shined brightly.
- "A Darcy Christmas" by Sharon Lathan was my favorite story out of the three. I enjoyed going back in time with the Darcy's while they reminisced about their years together. It was also fun to read about their children.
- "Mr. Darcy's Christmas Carol" was boring and unoriginal. I was hoping to see something different rather than the basic Christmas Carol story retold for the 100th time. It just didn't work for me.
Reasons for recommending:
- If you're a die-hard Austen fan then I know that you will really enjoy this book. However, if you're just looking for fun Christmas stories this probably wouldn't be the one I would pick up first. I love all things Austen, but I guess I was expecting something different and wasn't overly impressed with the collection.
Thank you to Danielle @ Sourcebooks for sending me a review copy. I was not compensated for my review.
