#Readathon update -- Hour 10

So far so good would be an understatement because so far it's been fantabulous!

I finished my first book -- Katie Oliver's Prada and Prejudice and it was so wonderful that I was tempted to scrap my TBR and just read Katie Oliver books all day. While not quite as blatantly Austen-ish as I had thought it was going to be, there were elements (aside from the last name of the main character being Dashwood) that clearly screamed Austen to me. Family angst, humor, strong but still flighty female heroine, and the men .... ohhhhh the men. Dominick is a right prat who, at times, would even make Willoughby look like an altar boy and Rhys is the stuff of Austen dreams. I'll be seeing them all again soon in the next book in the series .... but not today.

I opted to stick with my TBR and am currently 25% into Jane Odiwe's Jane Austen Lives Again. It's 1925 and a medical miracle has allowed Jane to be resurrected 108 years after her death -- and to be resurrected looking 20 years younger than she was when she "died." She's been employed as a governess at a manor house in the country, but when she arrives she discovers that her "charges" aren't young children at all, but young women of marriageable age and that she's been brought to help sort them out. Basically, she's been placed in one of her books .... or all of them meshed together!

It's great fun and I'm looking forward to continuing the tale in 3 ..... 2 ..... 1 .....
