Add Attempting Elizabeth on Goodreads. I just finished Awake and I loved it. 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 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?

Their relationship was so authentic and imperfect but ultimately perfect. Jun 03, LeeAnn rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. It's dumb. It's cute.

It's amazing because It doesn't seem like it's going to be worth reading but it ends up fun. And it works. The end.

It's the best answer to anyone wishing they were somebody else. Caution: The name of deity is taken entirely too much especially at the beginning. That stinks and lost it a star. Apr 21, Holly rated it it was amazing Shelves: I really loved this book. It was just a feel good book that I think I read at the right moment in my life.

What a wish to have come true! Nice idea, but lacking in execution. A heroine whom the reader can love, a charming hero, lots of Pride and Prejudice and a variant of time travel - what a grand combination! This is one of my favorites of the Austenilia. Dec 02, M1ssb3rry rated it liked it.

I have to saythat I liked this book Grey intergrated her own characters so well into the story and Mark was definitely a better Darcy as he was "real". Dec 31, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: romance-clean. Austen fan fiction, but different than your standard retelling of one of Jane's stories. It was just fun. I loved the snarky heroine. Apr 21, Pamela rated it really liked it Shelves: A feel-good book to make you smile. Apr 16, Amber Smith rated it it was amazing.

This book was so good. Nothing like what I thought it would be. Apr 16, Kara rated it really liked it Shelves: jane-austen-and-sequels , ya. This was so fun! Definitely a great plan by Ms. The social awkwardness, the open-mouth-insert-foot moments, jumping to wrong assumptions, her interactions with Mark were hilarious. They could never seem to have a full conversation without offend This was so fun! They could never seem to have a full conversation without offending one another.

And speaking of Mark. Handsome with an Aussie accent makes for a great combo! And he certainly makes Kelsey flare up like nobody's business. They have fabulous chemistry and try hard as she can to deny it, Kelsey realizes it. But something about Mark sets off her awkward button and she always seems to say the wrong thing.

I loved the first half of the story where they keep running into one another and being forced into conversations and wanted that part to last a bit longer. For she was sure that she was hallucinating and was, in reality, locked up in an asylum somewhere. As she tries to understand exactly what's going on and keeps re-setting her day over and over, her reasoning and thought processes are so funny. And it does take a little while, but she eventually finds her way home again. She actually ends up returning to the story multiple times.

All while dealing or not with her real life attraction to Mark and also trying to understand her own self. She's working on her Master's and is slightly worried about what her future holds. A hot guy and the ability to travel into a book make for loads of distractions from that. Yet sometimes she wants that distraction because hello, she gets to experience her favorite story as if it were real. And she had to keep the story moving so she could meet Mr.

Imagine seeing him in the flesh!

{Review} Attempting Elizabeth by Jessica Grey

Just as Jane Austen imagined him and just as swoon-worthy as you expected. That part is rather awesome in Kelsey's mind. She'd stay there a lot longer if the real world and Mark wouldn't keep calling her back. The transitions from real world to book world were smooth, but you never find out exactly how it works or why it works.

Which is okay. The story didn't need all the details of how, it simply needed to happen to push the story onward. Traveling into the story also helps Kelsey understand herself a bit better. She sees some of her flaws in the characters, which helps her grow and change. And ultimately be ready for a guy like Mark to sweep her off her feet. Because of course he's going to do that! It's just the journey to that point that's so entertaining. Nov 07, Alice rated it really liked it Shelves: Have you ever fantasized that you are the protagonist of the book or are reading? 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. 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.

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. To which thanks to this book makes me wonder if you were Kelsey , to which book they would like to travel?

Nov 05, Jessica rated it really liked it Shelves: arc , e-books , new-adult. Kelsey is a Literature major completely in love with Mr Darcy. After having her heart crushed, her best friend forces her to go to a party where she meets Mark. Mark is a big mass of muscle with chocolate eyes, reddish hair and an Australian accent. Kelsey can't seem to say or do anything right around Mark.

Right away she insults him and then caves into herself. The next morning she finds him in her apartment and once again she makes herself look like a fool.

After a disaster of a night of seein Kelsey is a Literature major completely in love with Mr Darcy. The problem is she wakes up as Georgina Darcy.

GINTAMA Elizabeth live action

In the beginning, any steps they made forward always ended tragically after something Kelsey would say. Her geekery is so funny! I related a lot to her character so watching some of the things she said and did were like watching myself. That is coming from a huge Darcy fan. It was pretty awesome to have a modern comparison to what he looked like. I always pictured him tall, dark, handsome and brooding. I love how everyone in this book as described. I had a perfect picture in my head of each character and they were lovely.

You could see the characteristics from the characters in Kelsey or Mark but as they grew and found love, you were able to see them alter into other characters. I recommend this book to all Austen lovers. You will not regret it! Aug 30, Kimberly rated it it was amazing Shelves: 5-star-reads. I'm just going to come out and say that I absolutely adored this book!

It's been awhile since I've come across an indie novel as well-written as this one, and it was quite refreshing. I have to admit that I share a lot of qualities with our heroine, Kelsey Edmundson - we're both geeky, awkward, voracious readers, who are uncomfortable in our own skins, and we both swoon over the fictional Mr. The hero of this novel, Mark Barnes, is just as swoon-worthy as Darcy, only instead of an English I'm just going to come out and say that I absolutely adored this book! The hero of this novel, Mark Barnes, is just as swoon-worthy as Darcy, only instead of an English accent he has an Australian one which is just as hot!

Unfortunately for Mark, Kelsey has just gotten out of a bad relationship, so he's treated rather unfairly by her at first. Kelsey's misconceptions of Mark were very similar to the misconceptions that Elizabeth Bennett forms of Mr. Through her adventures in Regency England, Kelsey had to decide whether she would continue to live her life vicariously through fictitious characters, or if being herself was enough.

The character development that occurred in this novel was amazing, and I felt it was very realistic. I also loved Jessica Grey's writing style, and felt that everything connected well and transitioned smoothly - the whole story sucked me right in! The quotes from various fictional characters that Kelsey looked up to such as Han Solo or Dr.


Sam Beckett which were featured at the beginning of each chapter were also a nice touch. The author even included a handy little guide at the end of the book to show where each quote came from! I like it when authors do special things like that for their readers. The only fault I found in this book was that there were a few typos in the form of words missing here and there, but that was most likely a result of file conversion rather than actual author error, and it didn't detract from the story at all. I will definitely be reading more of Jessica Grey's work in the near future - 5 out of 5 stars!

How cute is the book? I tricked myself again because I signed up for this blog tour months ago; between then and picking up the book, I forgot that it was New Adult. So many of those books are overdramatic romances about college kids who have way too many issues. A lot of people I received this book for free from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. More often, I find that New Adult is romance with younger characters. Attempting Elizabeth hit the spot, though. She is constantly comparing the men she meets to Darcy or Wickham though she rarely meets a Darcy. Suffering from a recent breakup and embarrassing herself in front of hot, Australian Mark has led her to return to her favorite book time and time again.

It reminds me a little of the movie Lost in Austen, except Kelsey is a character instead of herself. It allowed her story with Mark to develop. I enjoyed both characters, even if Kelsey was a little too obsessed. I could relate to her dorky humor. Something else I really enjoyed were the switched roles. That was a nice take on the story. The only downside was that it obviously needed a little more editing. I definitely recommend this book to Austen lovers who want a little contemporary retelling with a twist.

Jan 21, Candy rated it it was amazing Shelves: austenesque. Kelsey Edmundson is going through a rough spot in her life. She recently broke up her with boyfriend and would rather stay home and read her favorite novel, Pride and P Amazing! She recently broke up her with boyfriend and would rather stay home and read her favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice, but her best friend Tori Mansfield has different ideas.

Tori drags Kelsey to a club for the evening where she meets Mark Barnes, a hot Aussie with an amazing accent. Unfortunately, Kelsey is stand-offish, bordering on rude to Mark. Feeling like a total idiot, Kelsey retreats back home and to her favorite book where the strangest thing happens, she falls asleep reading and wakes up in Pride and Prejudice as Georgiana Darcy!

She is there quite a bit before she learns how to get back out of the book. I could really identify with Kelsey. I also liked how Mark questions her, and how he pushes her to think about herself; whom she is. And in the end she finds herself and maybe even love. I found it so interesting that the roles were reversed here, Kelsey is more like Darcy with her awkwardness and stand-offish ways and Mark was more like Elizabeth, smart, fun and gorgeous!

Ok, Elizabeth has fine eyes, but I couldn't resist saying gorgeous because that describes Mark.
