  1. Impressive list! I'm trying to read The Real Jane Austen: A Life in Small Things … one book in a month is about what i can handle right now. I would really love to hear about some worthy sequels/adaptations. I've never found any that satisfied me.

  2. Wow! That's a list!!

    I'm keeping it simple this year – focusing on just one book – Sense and Sensibility, but hoping to check out some of it's adaptations (books & movies) too.

    Good luck – I look forward to the reviews 🙂

  3. Oooh, I've got 'Longbourn' and 'The Pursuit of Mary Bennet' on my list as well. I've decided that this year I should try to read some adaptations, because usually I run away screaming when I see them! Hop by my #AusteninAugust Masterpost if you have the time 🙂 Hope you have a good rest of the weekend!
