You can read the books, spin-offs, and/or even watch the films. Just choose six Austen-themed things. Who can resist that?
Aside from the fact that this is one cool challenge, I watched a movie recently that would fit perfectly for this so I thought why not join. So here are my six choices, which of course are subject to change depending on my reading & watching whims.
- Persuasion. I recently bought this book and I remember several of you telling me it’s your favorite book. I know Melody reviewed it not too long ago either so that’s the one I want to read next.
- Lady Susan. The Slaves read this one last year and I just didn’t get around to it in time for the discussion but I still want to read it.
- Emma. I just watched this film but more on it later. Suffice it to say, I loved it.
- Miss Austen Regrets. Christine sent me this DVD and if she liked it, I know I will too.
- Northanger Abbey. Another DVD Christine sent me. Northanger Abbey is quite special to me. I read this one when Christine and I were wandering around in Bath several years ago. I can’t wait to see the film version.
- Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler. I first heard of this book from Naida and it sounded really cute, plus I won a copy of it via a giveaway she had.
So those are my picks. I know from my sidebar it looks like I’m behind on most of my challenges but I’ve got a couple of updates so more on those tomorrow.
