Book Thirteen

My goal for several years has been to read 50 books in one calendar year – 52 weeks – but I have always fallen off the rails around 25 books. This year, I’m twice as determined. I will be posting short reviews of each book with my thoughts and any recommendations I received for the book as well as a link to purchase the book from Amazon, (though I recommend checking your local library first). If you have questions, leave a comment! If you want to follow my journey, find me on Goodreads.

Has anyone noticed those cute little book exchanges that pop up on Facebook now and then? This is a result of one of those. Edenbrooke is a sweet little read about a young woman not quite as intrigued by Bath as her peers who welcomes an invitation to an estate in the countryside. Like any Regency novel, it has its fair share of grandiose gardens, unbelievable libraries, and handsome suitors. It’s a quick read, but definitely worth the chance if you fancy a little Jane Austen every now and then. Marianne has only one quirk that didn’t seem to belong throughout the novel: twirling.
