Mr. Darcy’s Diary (Jane Austen Heroes, 1) – Amanda Grange

Monday 9th September
«  »I left London today and met Bingley at Netherfield Park. I had forgotten what good company he is; always ready to be pleased and always cheerful. After my difficult summer, it is good to be with him again. … » »

The only place Darcy could share his innermost feelings was in the private pages of his diary…

Torn between his sense of duty to his family name and his growing passion for Elizabeth Bennet, all he can do is struggle not to fall in love.

Mr. Darcy’s Diary presents the story of the unlikely courtship of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy from Darcy’s point of view. This graceful imagining and sequel to Pride and Prejudice explains Darcy’s moodiness and the difficulties of his reluctant relationship as he struggles to avoid falling in love with Miss Bennet. Though seemingly stiff and stubborn at times, Darcy’s words prove him also to be quite devoted and endearing – qualities that eventually win over Miss Bennet’s heart. This continuation of a classic romantic novel is charming and elegant, much like Darcy himself.

Pride and Prejudice has inspired a large number of modern day sequels, the most successful of which focus on the rich, proud Mr. Darcy.

Mr. Darcy takes a wife (Darcy and Elizabeth, 1) – Linda Berdoll

Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy-beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken-a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines.

And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy-tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heartthrob whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife.

Their passion is consuming and idyllic-essentially, they can’t keep their hands off each other-through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage.

Hold on to your bonnets! This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to « Pride and Prejudice » is not for Jane Austen purists. Self-published in 1999 as « The Bar Sinister, » this sequel continues the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy through a sweeping tale of adventure.

Tout ce qu’on ne s’est jamais dit – Celeste Ng

Lydia est morte.

Lydia Lee, seize ans, est morte. Mais sa famille l’ignore encore…

Sa mère, Marylin, femme au foyer, rêve que sa fille fasse les études de médecine qu’elle n’a pas pu accomplir. Son père, James, professeur d’université d’origine chinoise, a tant souffert de sa différence qu’il a hâte de la retrouver parfaitement intégrée sur le campus.

Mais le corps de Lydia gît au fond d’un lac.

Accident, meurtre ou suicide ? Lorsque l’adolescente est retrouvée, la famille Lee, en apparence si soudée, va devoir affronter ses secrets les mieux gardés. Des secrets si longtemps enfouis qu’au fil du temps ils ont imperceptiblement éloigné ses membres, creusant des failles qui ne pourront sans doute jamais être comblées.

  1. I didn’t think there was a series featuring just Elizabeth and Darcy!? I’ve read Pride and Prejudice but it was never my favourite book to read but I guess that was when I was at school. The enjoyment factor is far less then. Have a great weekend. 🙂

  2. Not a fan of P&P and even less so of books written in a diary format I’m pretty sure this Mr Darcy’s Diary won’t be making my wish list. I do however have a certain friend who would love these books.

  3. Il me semble que j’ai aussi Le journal de Mr Darcy dans ma PAL… Mais que je ne l’est pas encore lu. Honte à moi! Tout ce qu’on ne sait jamais dit à de très bons retours. J’ai hâte de découvrir ce que tu en penses. Bisous Melliane. 🙂
