The Actor and the Housewife

The Actor and the Housewife

8.09 $1.99Audiobook: 7.49 (Whispersync)

At 7 months pregnant, a Mormon housewife has a chance connection with her celebrity crush (think Colin Firth), and the two strike up an improbable friendship. They're drawn together by their quick wit and brilliant banter (which are wholly responsible for the book's enjoyable dialogue). Over the years, the relationship becomes more significant to them both, even though they have little in common on the surface. An exploration of family, stardom, and whether or not men and women can be friends. I didn't love reading this book (well, except for all the witty banter), but I did love talking it over with a friend after I finished it.

Austenland

Austenland

Author:

This is charming but not particularly convincing, but devoted Austen fans still can't resist it. (I intend to watch the movie with Keri Russell, but have heard such terrible things about it that I haven't brought myself to do it yet.)

Midnight in Austenland

Midnight in Austenland

$10.99$1.99
Author:

From the publisher: "The follow-up to reader favorite Austenland provides the same perfectly plotted pleasures, with a feisty new heroine, plenty of fresh and frightening twists, and the possibility of a romance that might just go beyond the proper bounds of Austen's world. How could it not turn out right in the end?"
