I am really loving my re-read of JANE EYRE. What was going to say? My love? My darling? My Jane? The unknown is what is so swoon-worthy. #swoon

Talia Hibbert does it again. Zach and Rae gave me all the feels. While I'm bummed for this series to be over, it definitely goes out with a bang (lol pun intended).

My week has sucked completely.
Thank goodness I had this book. Eloisa James never disappoints! This is book three in the series so i don‘t want to accidentally spew spoilers. If you want a great binge read for the Labor Day weekend read this series. Seriously!

mabell I hope you have a better week next week! Thank goodness for books! 😄 11mo
EloisaJames Im sorry about the suckage! But very glad if Born helped!! 11mo

My absolute favorite scene in this movie, when Darcy helps Lizzie into the carriage... so much chemistry, so much said without words.... #swoon 💕
#unpopularopinion time.... I like this film adaptation WAY better than the BBC/Colin Firth one.... 😊

erzascarletbookgasm 🙌❤️ 14mo
Librarybelle While my favorite version is the Colin Firth version - I think it follows the book the closest- I fully appreciate MacFayden‘s Darcy. He‘s very swoon worthy too! And, you‘re right about the chemistry in that version...it‘s so good...I pick up another detail every time I watch it. 14mo
writerlibrarian So much ♥️♥️♥️♥️ 14mo

Melissa_J This is my favourite adaptation, too! 14mo
Cinfhen Confession....I haven‘t seen ANY of the P&P films 🙈 14mo
emilyhaldi Me neither @Cinfhen !!! Perhaps I should try this one but tbh I really don't like Kiera Knightley 🙄 14mo
Cinfhen Oh wow @emilyhaldi we might be the ONLY 2 people on Litsy NEVER to have seen a P&P film 😱 14mo
KarenUK @emilyhaldi @Cinfhen I wasn‘t much of a Keira fan either until I saw this movie.... she does make a great Lizzie.... and the music and scenery is gorgeous... 😍 14mo
Cinfhen You‘re actually selling it to me, Karen 🧡 14mo
Dragon Just rewatched this one on Netflix , all the feels ! 💕 14mo
Ddzmini Yes 😋 14mo
readinginthedark I enjoy this one but don‘t feel it‘s a faithful adaptation at all. I‘m picky, though; Charlotte‘s character in this version was just totally wrong. But I like it as a more artistic version than the others, and I agree that this moment is 💗 14mo
sprainedbrain I‘m with you! This is my favorite adaptation and Matthew Macfadyen is my Darcy. 😍 14mo

#HeyJune starts today with one of the most iconic Beatles song ever #HeyJude 🎧🖤Here‘s my favorite Jude, who‘s been in several book to movie adaptations 🙌🏻🤩

Kimberlone I love your theme this month! I am terrible at keeping up with photo challenges, but the Beatles are my favorite ever, and I might just have to try and play along with this one. Plus, it would give me a chance to show off my Beatles swag and books. 14mo
Cinfhen Just pop in whenever the mood strikes!! Would love to see your Beatles swag 😍😍😍and the creative playlist comes from @GypsyKat 🙌🏻💕 14mo

Cinfhen Right??? @eanderson He‘s a total hottie🔥💥🔥 14mo
Kalalalatja 😍😍😍😍 14mo
KarenUK @Cinfhen @Cathythoughts I loved the Anna Karenina movie.... it‘s an unusual adaptation- very theatrical and stylized... visually gorgeous 😍 14mo
KarenUK @Cinfhen My dad met Jude Law at a funeral recently, and said he was so kind, and a real gentleman... 14mo
Cinfhen OMG!! @KarenUK I would have passed out!!!! And movie does look very theatrical ~ costumes look spectacular (edited) 14mo
erinreads Great choice for a Jude! I used to be OBSESSED with this man. 🔥 I dragged multiple people with me to see him as Hamlet on Broadway multiple times in 2009. Even made my husband do some ~light~ stalking with me since he was staying a block away from our hotel in Washington Square. 😬 (edited) 14mo
writerlibrarian Clever choice 😁 14mo
Cinfhen Hahahaha @erinreads you clearly have wonderful taste in men 😜and light stalking is NOT sketchy behavior 14mo
Cinfhen Thanks @writerlibrarian 😘 14mo
emilyhaldi Keepin it creative over here!! 14mo
Cinfhen C‘mon @emilyhaldi is there REALLY any other Jude!???! 14mo
rabbitprincess I really enjoyed him and RDJ in Sherlock Holmes 😊 14mo
GatheringBooks such an eye candy, this one. 14mo
GlassAsDiamonds Must admit that I enjoyed his Watson better than RDJ‘s Holmes (but these on repeat are often my airplane viewing!! 😊😊😊😊). 14mo

When this beauty arrived in the mail, I was shocked! It turns out I had unwittingly opened a birthday present early. (Whoopsie! Thanks, Mom!) It has such an understated, but striking #cover and the illustrations are beautiful, too. A gift like this makes me feel very special.

batsy That just made my heart beat faster #swoon 😍 1y
Moray_Reads The cover is almost enough to make me but it. Almost 😣 1y
Cinfhen YOU are VERY special 💗happy early bday 1y
rohit-sawant Oh, that's fabulous! 1y
saresmoore @Moray_Reads It‘s not THAT pretty. And the spine is such a boring shade of brown, so... 😬 Am I helping or hurting? 1y
saresmoore @batsy Exactly my reaction when I opened it! Doubly so since I realized immediately that I had opened a birthday gift by mistake. 😳 1y
saresmoore @Cinfhen Thank you! ♥️♥️♥️ 1y
saresmoore @rohit-sawant I‘m so impressed by the Folio Society editions. I‘m a fan of everything but the price tag! 1y
Moray_Reads @saresmoore I think I'll be okay. I don't like the book and that *just about* staves off the need to own the Folio edition 😧 1y
saresmoore @Moray_Reads 😂 I wish I couldn‘t relate, but I own quite a few beautiful copies of classics I don‘t like! 1y
kathedron That is gorgeous! 😍 1y
ValerieAndBooks What a lovely (early) birthday gift!! 1y
LeahBergen Wowza! 😍😍😍 But wait... who‘s the translator? 😆😆 1y
saresmoore @LeahBergen You know that‘s the first thing I checked! 😂 It‘s Louise and Aylmer Maude. I will most certainly be comparing it to the P&V that made me fall in love with this story! 1y
LeahBergen @saresmoore And, once again, I read this in the Garnett translation. 😄 1y
saresmoore @LeahBergen I think that‘s the one I read originally, too. Reading it in Pevear & Volokhonsky‘s translation was like reading a whole new book. I think it might be their best work of translation. 1y

Today‘s theme for #RomBkLove is groveling. I LOVE a good grovel or maybe just a really good make-up scene. Over on Twitter a challenge came up for the heroine as the groveler and as I was scrolling through my books this one hit me. After they have a huge blow up where they both say things they regret, she woman‘s up and gets a press pass to the locker room after one of his games to plead her case. #swoon
