Stacking the Shelves

Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!
I only purchased one book this week for my Kindle. It has been on my TBR list for a while and the movie premiered at Sundance this last week. So, I thought it would be a perfect time to get it!
Austenland by Shannon Hale
Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

Decked out in empire-waist gowns, Jane struggles to master Regency etiquette and flirts with gardeners and gentlemen;or maybe even, she suspects, with the actors who are playing them. It's all a game, Jane knows. And yet the longer she stays, the more her insecurities seem to fall away, and the more she wonders: Is she about to kick the Austen obsession for good, or could all her dreams actually culminate in a Mr. Darcy of her own?


  1. Austenland seems like such a cute book. It's definitely one I've had my eyes on for a while now!

  3. I picked up Austenland too this week! Of course, I forgot to mention it in my post. I can't wait to read it though. I'm also really excited about the movie.

    Happy reading :)

  4. I think I've seen the movie adaptation of this. If it was this book then I can assure you that it'll be funny and off the rocker quirky. Enjoy the time travel, Kendall!


I love any and all comments! It keeps me honest!
