1. Pride & Prejudice
2. 13ish? I know I was in jr high
3. McFadyen (💜 shy Darcy)
4. Anne Elliot
5. Henry Tilney
6. Crawford siblings
7. 1995 Persuasion - it was just so perfectly cast and the tone felt true to the book

Thanks for starting this off @sprainedbrain 😁

Fellow Janeites, what are your #AustentatiousAnswers

Fantastic companion piece to a brilliant show. This book is a bit of an oral history - providing insights from the creators, productions crew, and actors of various episodes. Learned some fun snippets of info and my understanding of some episodes has certainly increased. Highly recommended.

Doing some late night power reading cause:
A) Book Club tomorrow and I‘m currently 71% done and
B) I‘m not loving this book like I wanted to so this final stretch is feeling longer than it probably is. 🙄😂

Thank goodness Elliot is providing some #catsoflitsy cuteness to help me finish up this book! 😻

LauraJ Good tabby! 3w
ShyBookOwl I've been looking forward to this one. What aren't you enjoying? 2w
Eyelit @ShyBookOwl I love the idea/concepts and world put forth, I just don‘t think much of the execution. Quite a bit is repetitive and there‘s a lot of angst that gets old real quick. There is one character I absolutely loathe, and cringe whenever the story shifts to their PoV. All in all I‘d give it an overall ok rating. I just really wanted to like it more. Maybe my expectations were too high 2w
See All 6 Comments
ShyBookOwl @Eyelit aww. I get that. Is it a translation? I wonder if that might account for the repetition. Sometimes translations can be clunky, but I'm not sure if that's the case with this one. 2w

3rd meeting of the #LitsyATXReadersSociety and our theme this month was Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Of course I had to read one of both. 😄 I‘ve reviewed both of these in earlier posts and was happy to share them with local Littens. I got quite a few great recommendations as well! Love this group 🥰

I was not expecting this book to be half as haunting (or eerily beautiful) as it turned out. Recommended by a slight acquaintance ages ago, I finally picked it up from the library this week. It bowled me over with its simple yet spare story. The art is amazing. I highly recommend this one.
(Side note, the timing of this read could not be better as it‘s very reminiscent of Black Mirror, and I just finished binging that series this week)

So glad the library had this available for checkout immediately! I just finished the series last night and my obsession is still going strong. Hopefully after I finish this behind the scenes book I can get back to my regularly scheduled reading. 😄 #libraryhaul #onlywayoutisthrough 😂

whippoorwill815 Omg I LOOVE Black Mirror but know almost nobody else that watches it. I haven‘t watched the new season yet because of it only being 3 episodes and I know I‘ll binge watch it and be sad it‘s over so soon 😂 1mo
Eyelit @whippoorwill815 I‘m lucky that I‘ve got a couple of friends and coworkers I can obsess over it with 😄 I‘m glad I‘m a latecomer to the show cause I could just binge away. Tho I‘m a bit sad it‘s over now. I can always rewatch later! 1mo
Soubhiville That show is crazy! I really like it, but can‘t binge it because every episode requires processing for me- lots of thinking and discussion! I‘m still in season 4, and probably discovered it a year ago. 1mo

This was a pretty good espionage comic. I think the less you know going in really adds to the experience. I got this on the recommendation of a comic store employee and I‘m glad that it paid off. I‘d def recommend this to others. I doubt there will be more to the series (my googling couldn‘t find evidence of continuation) but it ends in a somewhat conclusive but open for more way - and if there were more I‘d go along for the ride.

Soubhiville I like this artwork. 2mo

This is a decent modern take on the red riding hood mythos with a great dash of social commentary.

I‘m giving this a pick, tho it kinda teeters on that edge of so-so and pick. I think the storytelling/world building could be stronger, but I liked the ideas and definitely liked the concept of women taking back their own and trying to protect each other and their city. I think there is a volume 2 and I‘m going to check it out, for sure.

ohyeahthatgirl There are 2 volumes! I looved the art so much that I didn't care about the plot issues as much. 2mo

This short little book was a delight from start to finish. A woman impulsively buys a traveling bookselling caravan and comes to love the independence of travel as well as learning to appreciate the magic of books. Also, I‘m surprised this isn‘t a movie (if it is, I‘ve never encountered it) - cause it has the feel of a rom-com at times. 📚😍📚

Mehso-so

I wanted to like this way more than I actually did.

Pros: pretty good story, strong female protagonist, kind of has a slight (slight) Firefly vibe

Cons: underdeveloped characters, atrocious dialogue (everyone talks like they are from the late 90‘s despite being set in the future (in space!), and at one point a villain literally says “easy peasy lemon squeezy”), the art isn‘t my favorite

Overall: Meh. I didn‘t hate it, but no big love either
