Calendar changes from Aug to Sep and suddenly I'm super busy. This book was my constant companion this week. Took a break to enjoy Ricotta Pancakes w/ Banana Pecan syrup and a London Fog. Last of my #austeninaugust2019 reads. I'm actually glad I was so busy because it forced me to slow down & savor book. The most insightful book on Austen I have ever read. Glad I bought a Print copy because it's definitely a keeper. 📚🍌🤓

Crinoline_Laphroaig I love how it's divided into Chapters about Austen novels and how that particular book affected the Author's life. Writing style is readable and relatable. Ending will give you all the feels.

Andrea313 I looooove this book! So glad you enjoyed it. ❤️📚 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Andrea313 I now want to reread Austen in order how books are mentioned in this book. 2mo

Andrea313 @Crinoline_Laphroaig Ooh, that'd be fun! And then also read the corresponding chapter...I'd probably do that. 2mo
ValerieAndBooks This was a pick for me — and after reading it, said I wanted to re-read Jane. Scrolling down to this book profile and finding my review, was shocked that it was 3 years ago and I still haven‘t re-read any 😱 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @ValerieAndBooks Just not enough reading time! 2mo
ValerieAndBooks @Crinoline_Laphroaig yes exactly 📚📚📚! 2mo

After visiting Chatsworth and Lyme Park, I often mused which one was the Inspiration for Pemberley this quote seems to answer:
"Chatsworth has been suggested for Pemberley, because Jane Austen teasingly placed it in the vicinity of Bakewell, but Darcy was no Duke of Devonshire and Chatsworth could not be kept up even on £10,000 a year."

Thank you all for indulging me in my love of Jane Austen.
While officially #austeninaugust2019 is over; I'm not quite ready to let go. Finishing tagged book this Holiday Weekend. It's quite delightful. "Her genius began with the recognition that such lives as hers were very eventful indeed—that every life is eventful, if only you know how to look at it." ?

Happy Friday! We kick off the Weekend with the Jane's Addiction Cocktail. Gin and Pomegranate Juice, Splash of Lime, and Topped with Pink Bubbles. Sadly I didn't have any Raspberries to Garnish; but I can as the book says "ponder Jane's Love of Love. Tastes a bit like a grown up Hawaiian Punch.???

Tonight's Cocktail is the Gin Austen from book of same name. It's refreshing mix of Gin, Lillet, Orange Bitters, Sage, and Lemon.
Nice use of fresh Sage leaves in the Summer. 🍸

Welcome the Weekend! A little something extra for #austeninaugust2019. I'll be trying several of the recipes in Gin Austen. We start with my favorite character Elizabeth Bennett's cocktail The Fizzy Miss Lizzie. It's refreshing and effervescent. 🍾🍾🍾
