I'm not a huge fan of Regency romances, i enjoy them while I'm reading them but they all tend to blur together in my mind afterwards. I normally don't read one unless it comes highly recommended, which was the case with Slightly Dangerous by Mary Balogh. @lucyparkerauthor was very enthusiastic in recommending this Pride and Prejudice retelling, and I have to thank her for it because I stayed up until early morning to read this in one go. I was hooked right from the time Christine meets Wulfric! Actually I was laughing so hard. Christine is a smart heroine who is just so vibrant and full of life, a very pleasant character to read about. And she takes the dark and broody Duke of Bedwyn completely by surprise. I really enjoyed how Mary Balogh took elements of Pride and Prejudice but made the story completely her own. Had so much fun reading this book. Highly recommended for historical romance readers and fans of Jane Austen retellings. .
What's your favorite retelling of a classic? Or Pride and Prejudice in particular, if you have one?
If you could make a horcrux, what would it be?
I think a book would be too obvious so I'd say, a timepiece. I love pocketwatches a lot and wish I could collect but since I'm already collecting books, figures and Funkos, that might be pushing the limit ⋆
Do you collect anything other than books?

Could think of other characters for this one but I went with Fawkes because he's absolutely amazing and I love his and Dumbledore's tandem

This stunning Fawkes bookmark is actually double sided and I'll be taking another photo of it sometime. Paris is so talented and I have a lot of faves from @inkandwonder.designs and this is one of them
