Just Finished....

The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy by Maya Slater. This book was interesting and entertaining. It certainly gives insight into the character of Mr. Darcy, and what motivated him to act the way he did in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It gave insight into some other characters as well. I always think books written in the diary entry style are fast readers, and this book was no exception. I found the tidbit at the back of the book from the editor to be interesting also. Is it true that this diary was found in an old desk, and matched Austen's story exactly, save for the names involved? I don't know how true it is, but how cool is that if it is true?! I would recommend this book to all fans of Jane Austen's work and characters, but even without reading any of her books, this read can stand alone.

I really liked this book. I seem to enjoy books written in diary form...not sure why!

Random Magic does not officially release until January 2010 so that's why you can't find it at the library. I received it for the blog tour and I have to send it on to the next person when I'm finished with it. I'm going to try to post my review on Monday.

Love you!
