I've heard such good things about BEFORE I FALL. That's definitely on my to-read list!

I am especially intrigued by "Becoming Jane Eyre." Can't wait to see what you think of that one. But all those historical fictions look *delicious*.

As you can see from my Sunday Salon (when it finally posts to the feed), I have also been on an Austen kick lately!
