I’m excited to share that I’m participating in my second Jane Austen July this year put on by the ladies at Books and Things & Blatantly Bookish. I will never get enough of Austen, and I love having the month of July to really spend some time diving into her works and to works inspired by her!
Here are the challenges ~
1. Read one of Jane Austen’s six novels
We will be doing group readalongs of two of her six novels:
Emma: 1st – 17th of July
Pride & Prejudice: 18th – 31st of July
I have read all 6 of Austen’s novels, but Emma & Pride and Prejudice are my two faves! I’m so stoked to be rereading these both!! I have lost count of how many times I’ve reread them, but they just never get old for me!
. 2. Read something by Jane Austen that is not one of her main six novels
This was on my TBR for last year, but I didn’t get to it. I’m really hoping that I do this year as it’s her most popular work aside from her 6 completed novels.
3. Read a non-fiction work about Jane Austen or her time
4. Read a retelling of a Jane Austen book
5. Read a book by a contemporary of Jane Austen (1775-1817)
6. Watch a direct screen adaptation of a Jane Austen book
7. Watch a modern screen adaptation of a Jane Austen book
Are any of you participating in Jane Austen July or any other fun bookish things for the month??? Do you have any Austen or Austen-inspired recommendations??
