Austenland: A Novel

Austenland - Shannon Hale This was somewhere between 2.5 and 3 for me. This was the first book in the Austenland series and I had read the second book first. (you can read them as stand alones). I must say, I enjoyed the second one far more. I found it tough to make a connection with the main character Jane, and didn't like how the story was set up. Jane didn't really embrace Austenland which kind of ruined it for me, as I find the prospect of staying at a place like Austenland amazing. On the positive side, I liked the ending of the book far better than the second. Such mass confusion as to who was acting, who was real, who Jane would eventually end up with. I found it the saving grace of this book.
