Enthusiastic about Emma...

Guess what came this week?

New books are pretty much one of the greatest things in the world.

I've been trying to read a little in between homework, whenever I have a few extra minutes. I've finished "Prada & Prejudice," which was pretty cute. I generally stay away from Austen-themed books or spoofs. Well, let me rephrase that. I stay away from the Austen spoofs that are of the vampire/sea monster variety. I've read this one, "Enthusiasm," and "Austenland." I think "Austenland" has been my favorite so far.

I'm working on two of the others right now. Along with "Emma." Speaking of Emma, I'm so excited for part 1 of the new mini-series on PBS tonight!

Until next time,

  1. I'm excited to see what you think of The Magician's Elephant! I thought it was lovely. P&P was cute. Austenland is definitely the best spin-off I've read. I wish that one was a movie! Have you seen the BBC Lost in Austen? It reminded me of that book a little bit.

  2. I missed the first part of Emma because we had a church group obligation. I should watch it online so that I am prepared for Sunday night when part two comes on. I love books too. The smell of them, feel of them, words in them, everything about them!


Please feel free to leave a comment, I love to read them! :) I reply to each one, so be sure to check back, especially if you asked a question.
