Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027
Mansfield Park - Amanda Claybaugh, Jane Austen This is a very unmemorable book. There are a few good lines, but I was actually quite bored while reading it. Not to say that I disliked it, but Fanny is fairly unremarkable as a heroine. You don’t get the sense of desperation of her situation or her relationships as you do with many of the other Austen novels. Also, a lot of the book, particularly the play scenes, come off as massive filler and don’t contribute much to the story
