Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict [10/50]

Empire dresses and timid courtship!
*wistful sigh*
Rating: Great bedtime story for Austen-land dreams.

*spoiler free*

I read this book before bed over a few nights.
After finishing it I feel 3 things:
1- It was an easy read and a fun one,

as I do love the Austen world and throwing a 21st C mind in the mix-
well it certainly can take a bit of the romance out
and make an Austen fangirl think.
i.e. Life before toilets and TP.
Life before modern medicine.
2- Rigler's nose really has clocked some serious Austen-time
She's much better at referencing Austen than that Fowler woman.
The quotes and references didn't over power the story.
3- It was a little like 'Lost in Austen' (which I loved btw)
but different enough that I liked it.

 aka.*favorite quotes*
This quote really stuck with me:
Cray, eh?
Ladies have come so far since then.
And then there is that marriage issue.
{an aside}
  But SRSLY!
If you haven't watched Lost in Austen,
