Name my book!

Well, I haven't started on my new project yet, and I haven't even re-read any of the Jane Austen books yet. I've had a really busy week. We have relatives in town because my cousin is getting married on Sunday.

I have thought of a few more ideas for this proposed book, though. The names may change, but right now this story is about three sisters named Adelaide (or Addy), Callie and Paige. The main character is Addy, but I'm thinking about making her younger than Callie instead of the oldest.

One other character is going to be a good friend of Addy, and he will be a Mr. Knightly/Henry Tilney-ish character. I haven't named him yet.

The name challenge
I need inspiration for this book, and that's where you come in. I want you all to think of titles that sound like a Jane Austen book and comment on this post with them. Think of as many as you want! It will be fun! I will pick one to use as a working title, and announce which one I picked in another post.

Here are the real Jane Austen titles;

Lady Susan
Mansfield Park
Northanger Abbey
Pride and Prejudice
Sense and Sensibility

Now it's your turn! Have fun!

1.Angst & Ardour (
no that’s rubbish, but it was the first thing that came into my head)


3.Optimism for Beginners
(this is the only one I actually like – I’d read a book with this name)

... I give up. That was a fun challenge though. Good luck!

P.S Have you read ‘Evelina’ by Frances Burney?
