Jane Austen July is a month-long readathon ran over on Goodreads, all about reading Jane Austen and related works. Ive been meaning to take part for a while, but the timing’s never lined up for me so this is my first year. I’m excited to take part.
The readathon is hosted by Katie @ Books and Things and Marissa @ Blatantly Bookish.
1. Read one of Jane Austen’s six novels
2. Read something by Jane Austen that is not one of her main six novels
3. Read a non-fiction work about Jane Austen or her time
I’m skipping this one.
4. Read a retelling of a Jane Austen book
Charlotte by Helen Moffett
5. Read a book by a contemporary of Jane Austen
A Simple Story by Elizabeth Inchbald
6. Watch a direct screen adaptation of a Jane Austen book
In all honestly I’ll probably rewatch the BBC Pride and Prejudice for the dozenth time.
7. Watch a modern screen adaptation of a Jane Austen book
Bride & Prejudice (2004). It’ll be a rewatch but one I love.
