Is anybody else’s mind simply blown by the realisation that is is August again, already? Mine certainly is. But August means Austen in August, the super-fun reading event that celebrates everything Jane Austen.
I’ve got a much shorter to-read list this time around, mostly because I don’t know how much time I’ll get to read this month. So I’ve only got a few choice selections:
Emma – this will be my Austen re-read for the month, as 2015 marks two hundred years since its publication (I know, Miss Woodhouse looks simply amazing for two hundred – how does she do it?) Completed (finally); review here.
Jane Austen Cover To Cover by Margaret C. Sullivan Completed; review here.
Why Jane Austen? by Rachel Brownstein Completed; review here.
Everybody’s Jane by Juliette Wells Completed; review here.
Bonus: A review of the 1999 film version of Mansfield Park, and a post on the new Jane Austen waxwork.
As you can see, this year I’m continuing my theme of reading books dedicated to dissecting the Jane Austen phenomenon.
Are you participating in this month’s event? What will you be reading?
