Classic Double Challenge: 2012

Melissa, over at One Librarian’s Book Reviews, has started a challenge where you pair a classic with a related modern book.

This is her description: “Essentially, the Classic Double Challenge will encourage you to read one older book (classic) and a newer book that relates to the older one in some way.”

I am going to sign up for the Medium level which is four books or two pairs of related books.

I am definitely starting with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and Jane by April Lindner.

The Winston Brothers (Winston, 1-3) by Lori Foster

Lori Foster enchanted legions of romance readers with her seductive novellas featuring the Winston brothers. Now, these tantalizing tales are available for the first time in one volume.

This book includes the stories for Cole, Chase, and Mack which were originally published in separate anthologies.  I loved this series the first time I read it, but I am not as impressed now.  Maybe it’s just not what I am in the mood to read.

Hearts and Swords (Celta novellas) by Robin D. Owens

Award-winning author Robin D. Owens returns to the futuristic world of Celta with four original romantic fantasies as four different couples find their HeartMates and their destinies on Celta.

This was a wonderful addition to the series.  My favorites were the first story of the ships before landing on Celta and the last one about the Clovers.

I think I would have liked the others better if I had recently read the books they were spun-off from.
