Publication date: January 24th 2013
Genres: New Adult, Romance

Kelsey Edmundson is a geek and proud of it. She makes no secret of her love for TV, movies, and, most especially, books. After a bad breakup, she retreats into her favorite novel, Pride and Prejudice, wishing she had some of the wit and spirit of Elizabeth Bennett.
One night at a party Kelsey meets handsome Australian bartender Mark Barnes. From then on, she always seems to run into him when she least expects it. No matter how Kelsey tries, she always seems to say the wrong thing.
After a particularly gaffe-filled evening around Mark, Kelsey is in desperate need of inspiration from Jane Austen. She falls asleep reading Darcy’s letter to Lizzy and awakens to find herself in an unfamiliar place that looks and sounds suspiciously like her favorite book. Has she somehow been transported into Pride and Prejudice, or is it just a dream?
As Kelsey tries to discover what’s happening to her, she must also discover her own heart. Is Mark Barnes destined to be her Mr. Darcy? In the end, she must decide whether attempting to become Elizabeth is worth the risk or if being Kelsey Edmundson is enough.


Hello Guys! First I want to be honest with you. I never read Pride&Prejudice in my 20 years life. And I don't when I'm going to read. However I was heard all characters in the book. I can't say I like those things also I can't say I don't like.
Therefore I love the story.I love  Kelsey.She's such a smart person.Somehow she manage the time travel to novels. Everyone wants that right? When I was reading I little bit jealous her.

 I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but Kelsey quickly won me over with her nerdiness and her love of staying home with a good book (most likely Pride and Prejudice, her favorite). I absolutely loved that she was more Darcy-like than Lizzy-like! Attempting Elizabeth is the story of Kelsey Edmundson, a literature grad student who doesn’t know where her life is going. After a bad break up, she is distrustful of men and of herself.Luckily she finds herself in the her favorite novel.

Unbelievable! That’s the word I would use to describe Attempting Elizabeth! I truly loved this story! I felt it had a fun uniqueness about it. I loved the whole novel jumping aspect of the story, but there was much more to it than that...I don’t know if I can say anything about it without giving anything away. But I will give it a try!Attempting Elizabeth gives a whole new spin to P&P. I loved it.Author Jessica Grey takes the story of Darcy and Elizabeth and brings it into modern fandom. She wraps the story of Kelsey and Mark in a crunchy coating of geeky goodness. This is a story for the sci-fi, cosplay, Star Wars-loving ardent admirers of Jane Austen.
