Blog tour: Attempting Elizabeth by Jessica Grey

Attempting Elizabeth by Jessica Grey
Publication date: January 24th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Kelsey Edmundson is a geek and proud of it. She makes no secret of her love for TV, movies, and, most especially, books. After a bad breakup, she retreats into her favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice, wishing she had some of the wit and spirit of Elizabeth Bennett.

One night at a party Kelsey meets handsome Australian bartender Mark Barnes. From then on, she always seems to run into him when she least expects it. No matter how Kelsey tries, she always seems to say the wrong thing.

After a particularly gaffe-filled evening around Mark, Kelsey is in desperate need of inspiration from Jane Austen. She falls asleep reading Darcy’s letter to Lizzy and awakens to find herself in an unfamiliar place that looks and sounds suspiciously like her favorite book. Has she somehow been transported into Pride and Prejudice, or is it just a dream?

As Kelsey tries to discover what’s happening to her, she must also discover her own heart. Is Mark Barnes destined to be her Mr. Darcy? In the end, she must decide whether attempting to become Elizabeth is worth the risk or if being Kelsey Edmundson is enough.


My review

I adore Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen so I had to read this. I liked how it all worked in the book, the jumping into chapters as differen Pride and Prejudice characters like Gorgiana, Lydia, Caroline and Lizzie. Kensley' s attempts to figure out how to go back or how to stop always ending up at the sam chapter were at time hilarious. I liked seeing Darcy and Lizzie through her eyes, I loved Mark Barnes who is a particulary swoony guy himself and I liked how Kelsey finally cocluded that she is good enough all on her own. A nice, sweet and endearing read.
