Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen

Somehow am just finding out about this and am flabbergasted! New S&S, sign me up! But Hallmark?!!! Just, how? Why?! And who's coming to my watch party? #PemberLittens

1. I think Anne Elliot is my favorite, but I also love Lizzy and Elinor.
2. I can‘t decide. It‘s obviously one of Jane Austen‘s characters, but I love them all. Okay not all, but Mr. Darcy, Mr. Knightley, Captain Wentworth, Edward Ferras, Colonel Brandon - they all share 1. place 😬
3. Little women. I really like it, but I have to admit it‘s going slooow 🙈
Thanks for the tag @BeeCurious 😊
#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

BeeCurious Great answers! It is really difficult to decide on just one favorite character.
Even if you finish Little Women before June/July, I hope you'll consider following along with the chapter-a-day buddy read via #pemberlittens #hashtagbrigade.
Little Women will be a reread for me but I always learn something new from other reader's perspectives and comments. 🙂
BeeCurious If you are looking for people to follow on Litsy, you could try looking up the books you like (such as Little Women or Persuasion) and then follow the readers who posted reviews for that book. Someone made that suggestion to me when I joined. 🙂📚 6h
Eggs Thanks for playing🩵🩵 3h
Eggs @BeeCurious Great suggestion❣️ 3h

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb20: Ch.17-18: Wow Charles is such a jerk! A spoiled brat who needs to have a reality check. Now, granted, I know his childhood was hard because of their father, but spending even more on food, and treating Tom and Susie like he did - not cool. I‘m so angry on Tom‘s behalf. We‘ll see how things go but I‘d be kicking Charles to the curb.

Librarybelle Ugh…Charles! 1d
BarkingMadRead So frustrated! To be putting Tom deeper in the whole is so wrong! Poor Susie, stuck in the middle! 1d

mcctrish Who is the food for? Is he in cahoots with Dain? Nobody says anything to anyone 🤦🏻‍♀️ 1d
DebinHawaii Charles is an asshat! 🍑🎩 1d
LiseWorks I think he is jealous cause didn't Tom get the title and inheritance even when he was kicked out? 1d
Cheshirecat913 Charles is so infuriating. Why Charles? Why not help each other. Don't go cozing up to Dain! I hope that isn't Dain's house he was going to. 1d
CogsOfEncouragement It seems the brothers need to have a gab sesh. There is a lot they need to share with each other. 24h
julieclair It‘s hard to imagine how Charles can be so selfish. 23h
CrowCAH Charles is very childish. He never grew up. I think he went to a woman‘s house. Why else get up early and look presentable than for a lady lover? And he could be lavishing her with ham gifts. 14h
julieclair @CrowCAH And we all know how very seductive ham gifts are! 😂🤣😂🤪 now

mcctrish @Bookwormjillk absolutely must be real murder and the more the merrier after all this blah blah blah! Dmitry is BONKERS! 1d
Aimeesue Mitya is a bit obsessed with winning. He doesn‘t even like her! (edited) 1d
currentlyreadinginCO I am confused whether Grigory or Fyodor was maybe murdered? 24h
BarkingMadRead @currentlyreadinginCO I don‘t know! I would have said Grigory, since he‘s the only one bleeding 🤣 16h

#Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent Feb.19. Ch.15&16: I‘m glad Vicky and Tom are speaking and trying to solve the mystery of who is after Vicky and why. And now we get a bit about why Althea has been acting cold to Vicky - she thought she had abandoned her! I guess Dain knew how close they were and wanted to keep them apart. So, what‘s Carmichael up to? I think there is something to do with the two estates and the land, like Tom mentioned.

Librarybelle Carmichael is being very suspicious 2d
BarkingMadRead Carmichael has definitely been acting a bot off, and now it all makes sense. I‘m definitely #Teamtom on this theory! 2d

mcctrish Whatever Carmicheal helped Vicky‘s dad with land wise is going to = mucho dollaros so he and Dain want Oakridge ( or whatever it is called) through Althea or Vicky and they want to buy as much land of Tom‘s as they can. Not sure they care about buildings at all, might just level it all and leave the girls with nothing and control it all 2d
CogsOfEncouragement Always glad to see at least some clear communication between fictional characters. 2d
julieclair I think Tom has it all figured out. Now he just has to prove it. Hopefully Vicky will help him. 2d
CrowCAH Something is afoot. But what? I‘m with the group about the land holding the key to the mystery. 2d
DebinHawaii Yep, gotta be the land & either the water rights or there is something else there that‘s valuable. 2d

BarkingMadRead @mcctrish 🤣🤣🤣☠️☠️☠️ 2d
Bookwormjillk Your chapters were off? Now I‘m confused. 2d
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk I was saying chapter 7:5 and 7:6 instead of chapter 8:1 and 8:2 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2d
Bookwormjillk @BarkingMadRead ah, got it. So we read the same chapter just the numbers have been off. No murder today but seemed like he might have grabbed a murder weapon at the end. And I was cracking up at the whole you can have 3 million rupees if you just go pan for some gold conversation. Maybe tomorrow? Murder Tuesday? (edited) 2d
Bookwormjillk Actually true confession I find this book so confusing that I‘m worried I won‘t actually know when the murder happens 2d
TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk SAME will I even know? 2d
TheBookHippie We‘re all upside down… 2d
SamAnne LOL. I was wondering….glad I‘m on track! 2d
Librarybelle Okay…now I know I‘m 2 chapters ahead, somehow! Maybe I somehow two chapters in a day??? Talk about confusion! 😂 I kept reading the daily checkins and thought “but I read that a few days ago…” 2d
currentlyreadinginCO I was confused bc I was trying to catch up but thought my chapters were wrong 😂😂 2d
mcctrish @Bookwormjillk I mean there‘s been no murder yet, is there even a murder? We were promised murder but maybe we just get so spun in circles from Mitya running around with his hairbrained schemes we commit the murders 🤔 2d
Daisey @Bookwormjillk @TheBookHippie Glad to hear I‘m in good company with my confusion! 🤷‍♀️ 🤣 2d
BarkingMadRead @currentlyreadinginCO @Daisey @Librarybelle I‘m so sorry! I was running on autopilot 🤣 2d
Daisey @BarkingMadRead I was slightly confused by the chapters but only because I was behind and catching up. My comment was about the book as a whole! 2d
Librarybelle I think we can completely blame the craziness of this book! Overall, I like it, but admittedly there are parts that make absolutely no sense to me. It could be the translation I‘m reading or I‘m reading it when I‘m very sleepy. 2d
Bookwormjillk This book will always have a spot in my heart just because I don‘t really always understand it, but I am so enjoying reading it with you all. 2d
TheAromaofBooks I think I'm also ahead a chapter or two somehow, but if I stop now, even for a day, I'll never pick this one up again 😂 #pleasesomeonekillsomeone 2d
currentlyreadinginCO Figuring out where I was added to the experience 🤣 2d
Ruthiella I didn‘t notice! 😂 2d
Graciouswarriorprincess It is a crazy read and I think I am off the schedule too but enjoying reading it. 2d
dabbe @Librarybelle I'm with you! If I have my numbers right (in my l'il world), I read part 3, book 8, chapter 5 today. Are we 2 chapters ahead? #brainfried 2d
dabbe @TheAromaofBooks 😂😂😂 Any action besides running around on wild goose chases would be good! 2d
Librarybelle @dabbe I read that today too! I guess we are 2 chapters ahead. 2d
TheAromaofBooks @dabbe @Librarybelle - I think some of the group may have gotten bogged down during the It's Your Life, Father Zossima chapters 😂 2d
Librarybelle I bet, @TheAromaofBooks ! They were…well…interesting 😂 @dabbe 2d
KAO Count me among the confused. I too am unintentionally ahead on reading. As if I weren‘t already confused enough by this book, my own lack of coordination on chapters isn‘t helping me! (edited) 2d
BarkingMadRead @KAO @Librarybelle @dabbe yes! The weekend of the 10th, I spread out the chapter about the Elder‘s life, since it was so long! So you are a little ahead! 2d
dabbe @Librarybelle Meaning we could skip a couple of days? 😱😂😃 1d
dabbe @BarkingMadRead Lordy, was that long! Thank you! 💙🩶💙 1d
dabbe @TheAromaofBooks The ones with the letters as phases of his life? Whew, doggy, that was a slog--but not nearly as bad as Ivan's thoughts on religion that went on fooorrreeevvveeerrr. 😳😂😍 1d

Emma | Jane Austen
post image

"Emma's very good opinion of Frank Churchill was a little shaken the following day, by hearing that he was gone off to London, merely to have his hair cut... There was an air of foppery and nonsense in it which she could not approve." Reading Emma is always a mixed bag for me, as I detest her snobbery and conceit, but you have to hand it to her on this one! Frank Churchill, fuck alllllll the way off; foppery and nonsense indeed. #PemberLittens

BarkingMadRead 💯 emma is definitely a snob, and my least favorite heroine, but i think she means well (edited) 2d
Andrea313 @BarkingMadRead I think she always means well for herself, and learns to mean well for others. 😉 But through so much of the book, damn, I want to throttle her! 2d
BarkingMadRead For sure!! 2d

I lost my library audiobook for a few days, and I was almost to the point of finding a version on LibriVox. Luckily, my hold came back in fairly quickly, and I spent time this weekend catching up on the past week‘s chapters. So glad for the buddy read to keep me going through this one. Now, are we actually about to get to the murder?

#PemberLittens #HashtagBrigade #TheBros #1001books #audiobook

Ruthiella 500 pages and no murder yet! 😂 3d
TheBookHippie @Ruthiella 🤣🫣🤦🏻‍♀️😝🤷🏻‍♀️ 3d
Bookwormjillk Murder is taking its sweet time in this one 🤣 3d
Daisey @Ruthiella @TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk It‘s taking so long . . . 2d
Ruthiella @Daisey @Bookwormjillk @TheBookHippie Never has a book made me quite so bloodthirsty! 🤣 2d
