Books 4 & 5

Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Range, though not P&P by far, it was a fair companion piece to the original. Panned by some reviewers as "fanfic," I found it to be an interesting look into the allusive mind of Mr. Darcy. Although I wasn't blown away, it was a quick satisfying read after P&P.

Wuthering Bites by Sara Gray was just...bad. To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Wuthering Heights but I was ready for a twist with this monster mash-up. I was sure Bites would make me like the vamped out version of the story, but no, it was dull. The author continuously had her characters refer to the vamps as "beasties." The vampires weren't very vampire like and it was just nonsense. You would think a vampire Heathcliff would makes a lot of sense, but there wasn't very much vampire Heathcliff. Again, this book was just bad. I had to force myself to finish this book. I would not recommend it.
