    First, a huge thanks to NetGalley for an ARC of a book that basically killed me dead with all the feels. Second, do you like angsty swoon? Like ALL THE ANGSTY SWOON? Then this book is for you!! I can't even properly describe the amount of feels I had while reading this book. I'l...

    I'm a sucker for Jane Austen retellings (even the bad ones), so as soon as I heard the premise for Seeking Mansfield, I wanted to read it. Mansfield Park is a tricky adaptation in any case--Fanny Price is one of Austen's quieter heroines, and I'm never entirely comfortable with the pyg...

    I read an earlier draft of this book and devoured it! Even with 3 small children clamoring for my attention I couldn't put it down! As an avid YA reader and devoted Jane Austen fan I can say with assurance that this is a fun, delightful book! The characters are well developed and the s...

    A retelling worthy of Miss Austen. Finley Price has two loves: the theater and her adopted family. When teen movie stars, Emma and Harlan Crawford, move across the street for the summer, Finley's quiet life suddenly gets a lot more complicated. As Emma flirts with Oliver, Finley mus...

    I am the very first person to say that I am tired of Jane Austen retellings (as I write my own fairy tale retellings, but that's beside the point) and so I have to admit that I was even a little nervous about this one, despite it being something other than Pride and Prejudice. Sinc...

    Austen retelling plus theater - I've waited months for this book and can count myself among the lucky early readers. I rather like Austen's Mansfield Park, and Watson puts a fantastic contemporary spin on the story. Even if you've never read a word of Austen, you'll fall for Finley, he...

    If you love Austen (as I do) and slow-burning romances (as I do), then you will love this book (as I did!) The word "charming" was invented to describe SEEKING MANSFIELD. A clever, sweet retelling peppered with pop culture, Shakespeare, and--of course--Austen references. Really enjoyed...

    Oh my gosh. I cannot gush enough about this book (but I will on the blog soon, I promise!). I loved Finley. I loved seeing her grow and come into her own and see her take ownership of herself and her life. I think she is an excellent example of how some of the worst life situations can...

    It's taken me a while to write this review because every time I've thought about SEEKING MANSFIELD, I've spiraled into deep contemplation over my feelings about love triangles. (Not joking. True fact.) Because I don't like love triangles. (I know, I know, blasphemy.) So why, then, did ...

    I was quite excited for this book. I loved the synopsis and the hint at BFF to more. Sadly I was either bored or annoyed while reading. Finley is a decent enough character. She has a traumatic past and that definitely plays into her actions. It was nice to see her grow and branch o...

    I received a copy of this title from NetGalley. It does not impact my review. Seeking Mansfield will be available 5/16/17. I love a good Jane Austen re-telling and I haven?t read any based on Mansfield Park, so picking this book up was a no brainer. It?s been such a long tim...

    Kate Watson?s sparkling YA romance, SEEKING MANSFIELD?a riff on Jane Austen?s 1814 novel, Mansfield Park? centers on 16-year-old Finley Price, the theater-obsessed daughter of deceased movie star Gabriel Price, who is sent to live with her godparents, the Bertrams, after her fa...

    Guys, you need this book in your life. A lot of people think Mansfield Park is one of Austen's more lowkey, unobtrusive books--but Watson finds the charming core of that book and turns it into her own in a hilarious, romantic, and awesome retelling. You will love Finley. And Harlan. An...

    Did Seeking Mansfield Just Out Swoon Mansfield Park?! The answer is YYYAAASSS!!!! I am, admittedly, a huge Austenite, but Kate Watson made me fall in love with Bertram and Crawford even more than Jane Austen herself did. Which if you haven't read Mansfield Park yet, that is SERIOUSL...

    Because I love Jane Austen so much, I?m picky about my retellings. But, I?m happy to report that SEEKING MANSFIELD did a beautiful job of capturing everything that?s charming and wonderful about MANSFIELD PARK while updating it for a modern audience. (I actually prefer Finley to ...

    1. Do you like theatre? (Go to #2) 2. Do you like love stories/love triangles? (Go to #3) 3. Do you like marvelous combinations of the two in a gorgeously swoon-worthy YA package? Well, you're in luck! I think you can tell by now that I thoroughly enjoyed Seeking Mansfield. I'...

    I beta read an early copy of this and was surprised by how much I liked it. Kate's writing was easy to get into, and even though Young Adult isn't my thing, I found her characters likably flawed and complex, and the story was one I wanted to finish. Great book. ...

    Rating : 3.75 stars what is it with me and the .75 stars ?? Mansfield Park is probably one of my least favorite books of Jane Austen. I liked it, but Mansfield Park lacked a heroine like Emma or Lizzie. Fanny Price was dull, irritating and invisible. Finley Price was not. Se...

    Un remake del clásico de Jane Austen, pero con muchas variantes. Tenía demasiado en mente lo que sucedía en el clásico, y esperaba esos sucesos, pero aunque la idea es la misma, hay muchos rasgos y hechos que no ocurren y otros que son nuevos. Me ha gustado como está explicado, co...
