Austen in August: What I’m Reading

Happy Friday everyone! Since we are a week into August, I decided to talk about some of the books I’m reading for this month’s Austen in August events.

AustenInAugustRBR-ButtonAdam at Roof Beam Reader is hosting his annual month-long event dedicated to Jane Austen, and this is the first year I’ve participated. At the end of the month I’m hosting a giveaway for all pre-registered Austen in August participants here on my blog :)

Misty at The Book Rat is hosting her annual two-week event later this month, and this is the third year I’ve participated. Last year I contributed a guest post and the year before that I joined in her group read-along of Mansfield Park.

This month I’m hoping to read 1-2 Jane Austen novels plus a selection of Austen adaptations/inspirations:

senseandsensibilityLady Susan

Amelia Elkins

Jane Austen Book Club

For Darkness

Are you participating in any Jane Austen events this month? What books are on your reading list?

  1. Thanks for including my Amelia in your Austen in August activities! I wish I could devote more of my time this month to Austen and Austen-inspired books, but August is my busiest month at work and I just don’t have as much time for my hobbies. That said, I am re-reading Sense and Sensibility right now.

    I really need to read The Jane Austen Book Club. I saw the movie and loved it!

  2. I didn’t know there was another Austen event this month, I’ll check it out! I thought about reading The Jane Austen Book Club because I loved the movie, but we’ll see. I’m currently reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but it’s not what I expected. Next up will be Northanger Abbey, my first time reading the book.

    • I’ve been curious about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, mainly because it’s pretty popular and they’re making a movie version. But…zombies. lol, I’m not too fond of them. I’ll have to hear your thoughts after you finish.

      But Northanger Abbey is fun! I love the gothic elements and the characters, especially Mr. Tilney and Catherine Morland (whom I relate to a lot).
