Attempting Elizabeth Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Attempting Elizabeth 
Jessica Grey
Release Date: January 24th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Review Copy: From author in exchange for honest review

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.

Everyone grab your girlfriends and read this!

Ladies, ever act all stupid around a guy? Trust me, Kelsey knows your pain. She was hilarious, adorable, and I just kind of wanted to hug her at times.

Goodbye English accents, and hello Australian! Mark and his Australianness are to drool over. He can come get drunk anytime. I mean! Oh he's very much a Mr. Darcy.

Yes, there is a lot of P&P referenced in it, but as a reader who loves the classics, I loved every moment of it. Then again, let's face it. You picked up the book because of the P&P aspect.

The term new adult needs to be used with it's original definition. It's a very clean read. There is a wonderful romance that flourishes and I sucked in every moment.

So, if you're looking or your next beach read, or in my case, sitting by the fire with hot chocolate in hand. This is definitely a go to book.

 So, because I loved this book so much, I think it's only fair that I host a giveaway for it.
Thank you Jessica for providing the book.
