It’s COLLIDE’s Release Day! — 8 Comments

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I had seen the movie but hadn’t read the book until this past September! I had read Ms. Gaskell’s ‘Wives & Daughters’ and enjoyed it. I’m looking forward to now reading modern or period variations/versions of North & South! I shall hope on over to your website…I totally agree about the ‘smolder’!

  2. Congratulations, Melanie!! I am a devoted Gaskell fan, having read all of her novels and her biography of Charlotte Brontë, so I am very much looking forward to reading Collide!! I adore Nicole Clarkston’s N&S variations, too, but a modern N&S story I have yet to read. I can’t wait!!

    Heading to the Kindle store right now!! 😀

    • Thank you, I hope you enjoy it! I didn’t know Elizabeth Gaskell wrote a bio of Charlotte Bronte! I haven’t read anything other than N&S but I have seen Wives and Daughters and Cranford. They’re on my TBR list for sure!

      • Just a warning, one that I was NOT given when I read Wives and Daughters: it is unfinished. Mrs. Gaskell died before completing the novel, but my friends who recommended it to me never gave me this vital piece of information, so I happily read nearly 650 pages and just when the romance seemed to be finally unfolding came an abrupt editor’s note, explaining Gaskell’s death and the path the novel would have taken, according to her notes.

        I liked Cranford very much, but I preferred Mary Barton, actually, more than Cranford. I really want to read her Gothic Tales, but the Kindle book is beyond my budget. Most of her novels are available in free Kindle versions, including her Life of Charlotte Brontë.

        Thanks, Melanie! I can’t wait to start reading Collide!
