Review: Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo


Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo
English professor Emma Douglas has always done everything just the way her minister father told her she should-a respectable marriage, a teaching job at a good college, and plans for the requisite two children. Life was prodigiously good, as her favorite author Jane Austen might say, until the day Emma finds her husband in bed with another woman. Suddenly, all her romantic notions a la Austen are exposed for the foolish dreams they are...

  1. I must admit that this title doesn't appeal to me. Sorry...

  2. I haven't read this one yet but I did read her other book Mr Darcy Broke My Heart, awhile ago, and I liked it.

  3. Here's another one that I think would be an interesting read, plus there's that cover *love* thing again lol

  4. I have read it but it was when it first came out and now I can't recall what I did and didn't like about it.

  5. I'm not really an Austen fan, nut I might check this one out! Great review! :)

  6. Sounds interesting.

    I've just remembered that a few years ago I did read one of Beth Pattillo's chick-lit books: The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society. It was good.

  7. This is a wonderful book that made me laugh and made me think. I enjoyed reading it. The characters feel very real. The letters while fictional feel like they could possibly hold a measure of truth. Beth Pattillo delivers a modern day romance that also holds interest for fans of Austen.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
