I'm a Bad Janeite. I've never read Jane Austen's last unfinished novel Sanditon. Now that it's coming to PBS I was looking for it in Print. Found it Half Price Books in Austin. 🏖

@neet_reads you totally pampered me! This is a package of awesomeness, imo! The books are ALL on my wishlist, loving the tote and the sleeve, pretty bookmarks and I‘m going to have a lovely quiet time sipping tea in my new, spot-on mug. Oh, the bar of chocolate is recuperating in the fridge 😋. Thank you so much, I appreciate and love everything. 🤗😙❤️

neet_reads I hope the chocolate is still edible. Sorry, I know you said chocolate wasn‘t a good idea, but I worried at the end that I didn‘t have much in the box & threw it in there just before posting! 2y
Kalalalatja How lovely! 2y

I adore Jane Austen 😍 but this was a strange read. Lady Susan is complete, but is written in an epistolary style - very unlike Austen, although the normal characteristics are there. The other two parts here are unfinished novels, which is the main reason why I wouldn't rate this higher. They're both SO Austen, and I want to know what happens!! They both evoke the worlds of her completed novels, I only wish they'd been finished 😔 Worth a read!

I have officially read every word of Jane Austen's fiction now! Out of the three novellas here, Lady Susan is superior. The other two are pretty meh.

I revisited an old favorite after watching the film Love & Friendship, which is an excellent adaptation of Austen's Lady Susan. Love & Friendship is the best adaptation I've seen, second only to A&E's P&P with Colin Firth. Austen's witty dialogue sparkles in Lady Susan!

Abailliekaras Kate Beckinsale was just beautiful in the film! 3y

I love Lady Susan!!! She's so scheming and wonderfully unaware of what a horrible person/mother she is. Definitely a change from Austen's other heroines, who can be scheming at times (I'm looking at you, Emma), but actually do have good intentions.
