People that call Jane Austen a “romance writer with no substance” just kill me. She was extremely satirical and was extremely perceptive. 💗💗💗

Johanna414 Yes! 6d
Melissa_J Fully agree. I hate it when people refer to Pride and Prejudice as a romance novel. It‘s not. Yes, there is a love story in it, but just because a novel contains a love story doesn‘t automatically make it a romance novel. 6d

emz711 @jenniferajanes I just read Rebecca and honestly it didn't do it for me. Like not gothic enough? Maybe I'll have to try again 7d
emz711 @HOTPock3tt something about Austen 7d
jenniferajanes @emz711 I‘m a sucker for big plot twists. I can tolerate the slow build I guess because I know what‘s coming. The first time I read it was in high school. I remember liking it then too, but I honestly had an amazing teacher... whose name was Rebecca. 🤣 (edited) 7d
BooknerdsLife @emz711 Theres just something very special about Classics 😍 And there are so many gorgeous copies out there & I‘d like to read every single copy that I bought so am collecting them very slowly! I still need to give Jane Austen another go, maybe I‘ll try Persuasion next 😅🤗 7d
emz711 @BooknerdsLife it in s the best, truly. If you like gothic novels, Northanger Abbey may be right up your alley 7d

emz711 Come on, I know there's some Wentworth lovers out there! Some never Darcy's. Where they at? 7d
HOTPock3tt @emz711 @jenniferajanes I‘m currently reading Rebecca and i can‘t say that I love it 🙁 it‘s dragging a bit and I keep picking up other books... maybe it gets better further into the book (I‘m almost Halfway thru) 6d
jenniferajanes @HOTPock3tt @emz711 I guess I need to think more about why I like it. It has been one of my all-time favorite books since I read it in high school, and I‘ve read it multiple times since then. Time for reflection.... 6d
emz711 @jenniferajanes nah! You like what you like. I read persuasion every year. It's my jam! Everyone else can have Darcy 6d
HOTPock3tt @emz711 I loved Northanger Abbey too! it was a lot of fun!! @jenniferajanes Rebecca is one of my moms‘ all time favorite books so I grew up hearing her talk about it all the time. I think it definitely has quite an appeal. Maybe I just have to finish it to see the overall appeal 🤔 (edited) 6d

This is the box that made me cancel my #coffeeandaclassic subscription box. Idk why, but everyone else on IG had a beautiful, pink, hardcover. Mine was neither beautiful, pink, or hard. I reached out to them...no response, so I cancelled. Comparison is the thief of joy, I guess.

As much as I love Austen, I didn‘t find this book had enough of a story to compel me to want to pick it up and read it.

Austen sure knows how to write strong male characters, and I fell in love with captain Wentworth, just as I did with mr Darcy. The touches of feminism throughout were also very interesting.

There is no denying that Austen provides us with a very telling insight into what life was like within her era.

I've been craving some #rereads of my beloved Jane Austen lately. My TBR just keeps growing so it's been years since I did a reread. I realized on my way home today that 10 years ago I was in Austenland writing my thesis on her, so of course I'm feeling nostalgic! I'll definitely be revisiting more of these gems over the next few months. What are your favorite rereads?

I adore this book. This was my 3rd reread and it‘s just as good as the 1st time. It‘s my favorite Austen & the scene with Wentworth‘s letter makes me swoon every time. I love that the romance isn‘t based on a few chance meetings. Anne and Wentworth have watched 8 years pass and they have matured. They know themselves and their minds better and aware not easily persuaded any more. Plus, it has some delightful obnoxious characters like Mary!

At the beginning of the year, I found a reading list challenge that *said* 2019. And it had books I wanted to read (or re-read).
But apparently it was the 2018 challenge with an updated date, but not updated books. And some time earlier this week, they updated the books... And I don't want to read these new ones.

So reading Persuasion anyway.
Defiantly.

One of my favourite Austen novels and an underrated one imo. I think this story about “the one who got away” is rather romantic. The reader knows Anne and Wentworth are in love but they don‘t yet - and still it‘s not one of those “🙄 how can you be so blind and dumb, girrrrrl”-books 😂. The letter at the end is just💙💙💙. And of course this novel contains the typical Austen humour too, especially when she describes characters in her honest way 😂

Finished my second #MakeMeReadIt book today. This may be my favorite Jane Austen to date. 🙌🏻 For me, it had much more depth, wit and relatable characters. I loved getting into Anne's head and seeing how she remained true to her feelings.
I found this gorgeous edition at a thrift store that has sticker of purchase from The Jane Austen Centre in Bath. How cool is that!

I loved this novel by Jane Austen. I can't believe I hadn't read it until now. As all Jane Austen novels, it is a love story but this one is of lost and returned love. Pride and Prejudice is still my favorite Austin novel but this is a close 2nd.
