What to Read Wednesday

January 13, 2016

One thing I want to be better at this year is to not only share good books, but really help people find good books that they like.  So Wednesdays around here I’m going to start a new series – What to Read Wednesday, where I give you read alike books, and suggestions about books you might enjoy. This way everyone can grow their reading list!  If you have any books you would like me to feature on What to Read Wednesday, leave me a comment and I’ll try my best!

My only dilemma I’ve had come up with the What to Read Wednesday idea is what book to start with!  There are so many good books and so many suggestions!  I’ve finally decided for my first post I am going to share some books that are similar to one of my all time favorite books,

pride and prejudice book

What to read if you like Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

pemberly chronicles

1. The Pemberley Chronicles, by Rebecca Ann Collins

This is, hands down, one of my favorite Pride and Prejudice spin offs.  It is a series of 10 books that will take you  from the wedding through generations of the Darcy family.   This is also a good series to read if you enjoy the show Downton Abbey.


2. Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries, Carrie Bebris

This is a fun seven book series.  If you enjoy a little bit of mystery then these are the books for you They aren’t too gruesome or violent, either, which is always a bonus, for me since I’m not always a mystery type person.

lost memoirs of jane austen

3. The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen, Syrie James

This is a delightful little novel that I adore!  If you are a Jane Austen Fan, then Syrie Jaames should be one author you don’t want to miss.

darcy at last

4. Darcy at Last, Jane Grix

This is a new author I discovered in the last month and I love loved her work.  She has a couple novels you can chose from as well as these short novella’s that are perfect for when you only have an afternoon you can spend with the Darcy’s.


5. Austenland and Midnight in Austenland, by Shannon Hale

Last, but not least, no list I make of Pride and Prejudice read-alikes could be complete without these two fun novels.  Shannon Hale has been one of my favorites for years and her books always hit the right spot.  These are clean enjoyable books for any modern day Jane Austen/Pride and Prejudice fan.


Are you a Pride and Prejudice fan?  Have any suggestions?

What would you add to this list?

Leave me a comment and let me know what books I left out (because there are just so many to choose from!).
