Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

A piece of an Austen novel

The Watsons - Jane Austen

This fragment of an Austen novel about a sister raised by a wealthy aunt now returned to her former home has evidence of Austen's wit and keen observational skills but it's not as polished or well written as her finished books, or even Sanditon, which is both mildly shocking and very endearing.
