July books
Pride and Prejudice: An Annotated Edition - Jane Austen,Patricia Meyer Spacks
The Annotated Pride and Prejudice: A Revised and Expanded Edition - Jane Austen,David M. Shapard
The Science of Herself - Karen Joy Fowler
The Philosopher Kings - Jo Walton
The Star Side of Bird Hill: A Novel - Naomi Jackson Groves
China to Me - Emily Hahn
Ross Poldark - Winston Graham
Crystal Kingdom (The Kanin Chronicles) - Amanda Hocking
Imitation - Heather Hildenbrand

After receiving two annotated editions of Pride and Prejudice for my birthday in June, I started July by reading both at once, which took some figuring out. I soon settled on reading Austen's text on my Kindle so the flow of the story wouldn't be interrupted--those side notes were too tempting otherwise. Every chapter or two I'd go to the physical books to catch-up on the often fascinating annotations.

 

I loved reading Pride and Prejudice again, of course, but I'd forgotten how unsuited Elizabeth and Darcy seem at first. Even though I knew how the story goes it added some delightful tension to the story. 

 

The Patricia Meyer Spacks edition of P&P is a gorgeous hardback with color illustrations and more emphasis on discussing literary criticism critiques of Austen's work than David H. Shepherd's offering. Shepherd's book is a paperback with lovely black and white illustrations, and his book gave a little more attention to interesting bits of historical background than Spacks book did. 

 

While I was reading Austen I was also reading a pretty good Kindle freebie, Imitation by Heather Hildenbrand, that had piqued my interest by having a clone as a main character. It wasn't Orphan Black wonderful, but the story did hold me to the end. 

 

Below are links to the books I read and reviewed in July:

 

The Science of Herself

The Philosopher Kings

The Star Side of Bird Hill

China to Me 

Crystal Kingdom 

Ross Poldark
