Final Anniversary Giveaway & Winners announcement

This past week we’ve been celebrating From Pemberley to Milton’s 5th anniversary and we brought you 5 different posts with many giveaways to thank you for all your support. But that was not the only thing we did, I’ve also decided to create a Facebook page fully dedicated to this blog and finally renovate the blog. Well, I can’t exactly say I’ve finally renovated it because in the end I was able to keep my previous theme, which I never wanted to change, but I’ve been finally able to add the menus I’ve been wanting to add for years. 

Before I announce the winners of this week’s giveaways, let me just go through the changes I’ve done at From Pemberley to Milton and announce one final giveaway 🙂

A while ago I did a survey asking my readers if it would be interesting to have an easy access to my previous reviews and posts, and the majority replied it would, so now I’ve finally implemented a way for you to do just that 🙂

Apart from the usual menu that was already available I’ve been able to add sub menus that will direct you to other pages. Hopefully this will make it easier for you to peruse reviews, guest posts and excerpts from the past, and also allow me to keep everything more organized (I am a little obsessed with that).

So, if you go to each one of the previous menus, you’ll see that in all of them, except the About page, you’ll have sub menus.


If you click directly into Pride & Prejudice menu you’ll see the page will remain the same, so a list of all Austenesque Books I’ve read with the links to the reviews of the books I did review. But if you click on any sub menu, then you’ll be directed to more specific pages. You’ll find only the books I’ve reviewed organized per author, per genre and also per format! I’ve added a new page dedicated to my audiobook reviews and in it you can easily see which audiobooks I’ve reviewed with specific information about the narration too.

If you want to search for something even more specific, you can click in the reviews per genre, and you’ll see another layer of menus, where you’ll find the reviews organized by sub genre.

My favourite genre is regency variations, so that’s where you’ll find most of the books I’ve reviewed, and because I don’t read or review as many other genres, I’ve decided to group them. So you’ll have Prequels & Sequels in one single page, then Different Eras & Time Travel where you’ll find all books I’ve reviewed that are set in an era that is not regency, this means you will also find the modernizations in this page.

I couldn’t find a proper genre to pair the secondary characters with, so that one stands alone, and at last I’ll have a page dedicated to the Austen Inpired novels and also fan fiction of other Austen novels that are not P&P.

The number of North and South fan fiction books I’ve read is quite small compared to the Jane Austen fan ficiton, so you’ll have the main page where you’ll find all the books I’ve read, and the sub menu N&S Reviews Per Author where you’ll find all the books I reviewed.

Then on Authors Corner you’ll be able to find all the Excerpts, Guest Posts, Interviews (character and author) and Cover Reveals that were published on From Pemberley to Milton.

Lastly you’ll find a new sub menu on About called My Jane Austen Roadtrip where you’ll find all the road trip posts I’ve done. I’m hoping to increase this page and maybe design some road trips you may do yourself, but that is a future project 🙂

I hope you like the new pages that are now available at From Pemberley to Milton and that they may be useful for you 🙂

To celebrate this facelift, I would like to offer to one reader one ebook of his choice of any book I’ve either reviewed or hosted on this blog. Take your time to check out the new pages and once you’ve found one book you’d like to have let me know in the comments. This giveaway is open until the 17th of August and all you have to do is comment on this post which book you’d like and which was the post previously published on this blog that got you curious.

I also wanted to reward my most faithful readers, so on the 17th I’ll check who are the readers with most comments on this blog and offer each one of them this Mr. Darcy tote bag.

And now, it’s time to announce all the winners of the previous giveaways 🙂

  2. I love all of the menus!

    Hi Rita,
    Congratulations on your 5 years!
    I’m glad that you didn’t change your page much. Change is always upsetting. The pull-down menus are really nice! Very handy.
    For your facelift giveaway, if I were to be selected, I am interested in “The Rogue’s Widow”, by Nicole Clarkston.


  4. sheilalmajczan

    Congratulations on that anniversary and to all the many winners. Don’t know which book I would select. I have read so many I would have to go back and look at each to see if I read it. No time today to do that.


  5. suzanlauder

    I poked around and like the new layout, Rita. It’s not easy to implement such a thing, so brava.


  6. Congratulations again for your Anniversary. Looking for more years!!
    This is awesome. Love your facelift. Easy to find old reviews/posts.
    If I am fortunate I would like to have Victoria Kincaid’s The Unforgettable Mr. Darcy.

    Thank you for the chance.

    Blessings to you always!


  7. Sophia Rose

    Wow! You must have spent days on those pages and tabs. I peeked into each one. That is so handy. I like how you organized them.

    Yay, glad to win one of the prizes. Thank you and the authors for your generosity. Congrats to the other winners!


  8. Congratulations to the winners!

    Thank you!

    Love the new look and the menus, Rita, so useful! And fingers crossed for another JA Roadtrip when the world stops running mad…

    Dear Rita,

    Heartiest congrats on your new blog! 🎈🎊
    It looks lovely,is well laid out and very easy to navigate.

    I see that I’m a winner of one of Lory Lilian’s books! My thanks to you both for such. I’ve read quite a lot of her books but ‘A Man with Faults’ seems to have escaped my notice. My Amazon account is a U.K. one and I’d love a copy of this story.

    Another book which flew under my radar is Amy D’Orazio’s ‘A Period of Exquisite Felicity’ which you reviewed on Feb. 22nd 2018. You were very impressed with it and enthusiastically awarded it 5 ⭐️.I look forward to reading it.

    Best of luck for the year ahead with your blog. Stay safe. 🍀


  13. What a wonderful way to kick off your beautifully-updated blog … with winners!

    Congratulations to every one. Happy reading!


  14. Congratulations to all of the winners!


  15. Congratulations every one!
    Especially Rita, for the great all these 5 years keeping us informed, entertained and supplied with great reading suggestions!
    If by chance I would win the giveaway, I would love The Elizabeth Papers – beeneaning to read it but haven’t bought it yet!


  16. Cristina Silva

    And to you and the new blog layout

    Thank you


  17. Congratulations to all the Lucky winners….


  18. Your menus look so wonderful, Rita! I admire such lovely organization (I am sure we are acting like Mr. Collins and his delight with shelves in the closets!)
