Book Haul Pic 2! 💕📚💕

I added another Penguin Clothbound hardcover to my collection today! This time it's Madame Bovary, which I've been wanting to get for awhile now! I love the dark purple and orange cover! 😍 And I've been resisting this Mansfield Park Chiltern edition for ages now but I finally caved and got it today! The picture doesn't do it justice - it's exquisite! It's so pretty it actually makes my heart ache! ❤📖❤ #bookhaul

SRWCF I could stare at those covers for the rest of eternity! 😇 5d

Branwen @erzascarletbookgasm @RaeLovesToRead @IndoorDame @DivineDiana Thank you! They are so gorgeous! @vivastory It was hard to only get just the one! I have a feeling I'll be hunting down the rest of them sometime in the future! 😁 @SRWCF SAME! I CAN'T STOP GAZING AT THEM! 😍 @Becker I'm thinking about also ordering The Tenant of Wildfell Hall too...it was just as beautiful! I can't resist them! 💕📚 3d

24-5 Oct 2021 (audiobook)
Listening to Billie Piper‘s narration of Mansfield Park has encouraged me to watch her as Fanny Price. Fanny is not, however, a favourite. Why is she so sickly? She does not seem to be able to walk for more than 10 minutes! As a heroine, I much prefer Lizzie Bennett‘s strength and athleticism. I also deplore Fanny‘s passivity and her inability to express her needs or attempt to change her situation.

mjtwo On this reading, I actually wondered whether there is an insinuation of abuse by her uncle. Their confrontation after Fanny rejects Henry Crawford was quite violent and gave an impression of earlier violence in her attic room. Similarly his attitude towards his pretty niece on his return from Antigua seemed a little off kilter. (edited) 3mo

I did keep up with the #Pemberlittens chapter-a-day but am horribly behind in posting Litsy reviews...

Even the worst Jane Austen is better than 95% of books out there... And yes, I think like most people, this is my least favourite of Austen's work. It drags in places, it doesn't have the same humour as her other works and Fanny is a little flat as a heroine. But the prose is beautiful and there are places where classic Jane shines through.

Almost finished reading this monstrosity of a book! Although it‘s not my favorite Austen (shocker), I don‘t think Fanny is as loathesome as some people say. I think Fanny has an admirable sense of self-control considering how abused she has been. While this is a more modern interpretation, I believe this book has a lot to say about anxiety and psychological abuse. #pemberlittens

The first time I tried to read Mansfield park I bailed but after finding this audio production with full cast narrated by my favorite Dr Who companion Billie Piper I am happy to say I finished 🙂 overall mixed feelings about story and characters. I did admire Fanny sticking to her refusal to marry Mr. Crawford but other than that just wasn‘t my fav Austen heroine. #pemberlitten @sprainedbrain

And I‘ve finished the audio. Abridged of course because this book was terrible! No love lost on this one. #pemberlittens @sprainedbrain
Was anyone else terribly disappointed that Fanny and Edward‘s relationship was more an afterthought?

I hope Emma is amazing, I need me some romance, humor and characters I want to cheer for.

BUH-BYE FANNY.

StaceGhost The thing I liked most about this book was the suspicion some literary theorists have that Fanny was based on Belle Dido, the daughter of mixed race who grew up an aristocrat in England before slavery was abolished 10mo

Okay #pemberlittens. I was hating on this book so much I decided the book looked too heavy. So I decided to finish via audio. Thank god Juliet Stevenson is narrating. I just finished her narration of Diane Setterfield‘s Once Upon a River and I love her slightly gravelly and smooth at the same time voice.

With the #PemberLittens, I‘m reading Austen‘s novels for the 3rd time. As I was reading this, I realized that of the Austen‘s we‘ve read so far, this is my least favorite one. I‘ve also said that I love them all equally. But even my least favorite Austen, is still a good book.

It‘s just that you have to read all the way to the end, to really appreciate Fanny and her character.

After every book, I think that Austen can‘t manage to write an more

Not that many books I can suggest as background reading for Mansfield Park!

There's (obviously) the play they were going to put on, and if you're interested in the idea of Fanny as a slave Castle Rackrent should be a good comparison text.

Some of the last boxes to be unpacked at the new house are the book boxes, but I did finish Mansfield on schedule! I‘m very sorry that I wasn‘t able to keep up with my chapter-a-day posts this time but I‘m loving catching up on all of your posts.❤️

MP is still not my favorite Austen, but it‘s also not my least favorite, so there‘s that. 😉 I enjoyed my time with Fanny, her miserable family, and my conflicted feelings on the Crawfords.

👍 I watched the BBC miniseries and loved it! The hairdos were odd but I thought the acting was really good and it stayed very true to the book. I liked this portrayal of Fanny, and Sir Thomas was really wonderful. I also thought they displayed Mary Crawford, Fanny, and Edmund very clearly. Mary really is always butting in right before Edmund at moments when, if Edmund showed up five minutes sooner, he might have fallen in love with Fanny.

Kdgordon88 Thanks for this review! I‘ve been trying to decide which adaptation to watch...although who am I kidding, I will eventually watch all that are available. 😂 10mo
