    Updated (January 4, 2018) with full review:My reaction: I was on the fence for the first 5 or 6 chapters of this book, but really ended up enjoying it (and polishing it off in a day!). Initially I kept trying to figure out which character was supposed to represent which Austen character (as I knew the book was Austen-inspired) and I was seeing all the parallels. This was kind of distracting for me, especially considering that it pulled from both ...

    This was definitely a new twist on Pride and Prejudice for me. I've seen zombies, but I've never seen magical books.

Beim Lesen merkt sie jedoch, dass es sich um eine Art Tagebuch handelt und dass Eintragungen in das Buch in Erfüllung gehen. Emma benutzt dies natürlich auch gleich, um selbst einige Wünsche in Erfüllung gehen zu lassen. Anfangen möchte sie mit dem unmöglichen Darcy de Winter, der sich aufführt, als g...

    Meinung:Da mir Mechthild Gläsers "Buchspringer" sehr gut gefallen hat, war ich gespannt auf ihr neuestes Werk, das mich durch dieselbe locker-leichte Art auch sofort für sich gewinnen konnte.Die Ich-erzählende Protagonistin Emma besucht das Internat Stolzenburg, weil ihr Vater dort Rektor ist.In den Ferien war sie "nur" bei ihrer Mutter, während die anderen Schüler des Eliteinternats rund um die Welt im Urlaub waren. Doch das stört Emma nic...

    Zauberhaft, auch wenn man den Jane-Austen-Bezug mit der Lupe suchen muss.
