How is it almost August?!?! The good news is that it’s time once again for a month-long celebration of all things Austen.
The goal is to read (or reread) as many Jane Austen works/spinoffs/biographies as possible throughout the month. 2017 marks the fifth year of this fun event.
I have several Austen related blog posts planned, and have written a guest post that will appear on Roof Beam Reader in the second half of August. Stay tuned!
My Austen in August TBR List:
- Jane Austen at Home, Lucy Worsley
- The Austen Escape, Katherine Reay
- Eligible, Curtis Sittenfeld
I also want to start reading my copy of the Harvard University Press Annotated Mansfield Park, but don’t plan on finishing it in a month. I prefer to dip in and out of these editions since they are packed full of detailed information.
Potential Additional Reads:
- A Jane Austen Education: How Six Novels Taught Me About Love, Friendship, and the Things That Really Matter, William Deresiewicz
- Jane Austen: A Life, Claire Tomalin
- Jane of Austin, Hilary Manton Lodge
I’m not sure I’ll have time to pick any of these up, but you never know.
My Austen in August Rewatch List:
- Emma (2009)- BBC miniseries
- Lost in Austen (2008)- ITV minseries
- Love & Friendship (2016)
- The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (2012)- Youtube series
I’m probably being overly ambitious, but my inner Janeite can’t help it!
Will you be joining in on the Austen in August fun?
