Tour Review of Attempting Elizabeth by Jessica Grey


AEAttempting 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.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Have you ever fantasized that you are the protagonist of the book or are reading?

or even your favorite book ? The first step is to admit it as a reader !

Well, since we have admitted ,Now the review. Well, when I read the synopsis of the book caught my attention the fact that the protagonist Kelsey Edmundson , was transported to a favorite book : Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
That factor was the point that caught my attention , and I decided to read it. Although I would have loved  read in the summer,I don't Know why, but a good iced tea, your favorite chair or favorite place and some headphones with soft music and automatic disconnection the world.

Our protagonist is Kelsey , and can say that is a very good representative of the reader  female gender has a book  favorite in good times  like falling in love  or bad as when you have a very strong break with a boyfriend , aka the ex , that book is your friend and you identify with the protagonist or you wants a lovely man like Mr. Darcy .

But life can not give to Mr. Darcy who is one of the most desired characters in literature , but rather comes across a boy named Mark Barnes . His problem is a lack of confidence or rather of communication, and when this is complicated and Kelsey feels the worst decides to read a favorite book Pride and Prejudice, and it is here where things start getting complicated .

Imagine arriving at your favorite book be one or more of the characters in it ? That happens to Kelsey and will have to go through the real life and your favorite book and ask: can be stronger the desire to be Lizzy and have a Mr. Darcy or overcome their fears and insecurities , be Kelsey Edmundson and discover if what life brings good or bad will make you grow.

The book is good, funny in parts , but lets you see the human side of each reader for the love of a book and its history , as the magic of imagination or reality can create. Kelsey is like any girl, you grow or young, you will identify with her easily and Mark good could become a good choice literary character of felling love .

If you read Pride and Prejudice will remember some or all of the passages and you wanted to read it again, because Attempting Elizabeth , and if you read first Attempting Elizabeth but have not read Pride and Prejudice as well be a good guide for you to add to your list of books to read .

I highly recommend it , if you're a fan of Jane Austen 's novel this turn you liked , if you're a reader who likes twists , or if you are also looking for something new , also a good choice .

To which thanks to this book makes me wonder if you were Kelsey , to which book they would like to travel?
or relive your story ? or what was the first sack them that desire?

My stars for this book: 4 stars

PS: If I were Kelsey ... my first book that made me want to travel within it, was ...
Interview with the Vampire ,
and it was not for Lestat , was rather by Louis and landscapes which described in it .
