Where Pride and Prejudice ends, a new relationship begins.

Good-humoured but detached and taciturn, Mr Bennet is not given to intimacy. Largely content with his life at Longbourn, he spends his evenings in the solitude of his library, accompanied only by a glass of port and a good book. But when his cousin, the pompous clergyman Mr Collins, announces his intention to visit, Mr Bennet is curious to meet and appraise the heir to his estate.

Despite Mr Bennet’s initial discouragement, Mr Collins quickly becomes a frequent presence in his life. They correspond regularly, with Mr Collins recounting tales of his follies and scrapes and Mr Bennet taking great pleasure from teasing his unsuspecting friend.
When a rift develops between the men, Mr Bennet is faced with a choice: he must withdraw into isolation once again or acknowledge that Mr Collins has brought something new and rich to his life.

Tender, heart-warming and peppered with disarming humour, The Longbourn Letters reimagines the characters of Pride and Prejudice and perfectly captures the subtleties of human relationships and the power of friendship

Thanks Rose. Some great choices there, and another nod for Harry Potter. I must admit that aside from watching Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry on TV I don’t know a lot about Jeeves and Wooster. Maybe I need to remedy that huh? And Little Women. I used to read that loads when I was younger.

So what do you think? Are any of these in your list of favourites or maybe some have made their way onto you to be read lists now? Make sure to join me on Saturday when Kate Field will be sharing her personal #BookLove with us all.

Have a fab day all
