[The Folio Jane Austen] | Jane Austen, Robert William Chapman, Joan Hassall
post image

Found this mismatched set of Folio Society Jane Austen in a junk store. I told Shopkeeper that I collected Jane Austen and it's missing Sense and Sensibility. Since it was one of those places that uses old books a decoration I asked if they had put it somewhere else. "Sorry No. Did you see the other set?" Leads me to set of Mark Twain. ?‍♀️

Crinoline_Laphroaig "That's not Austen." I say."Oh but it's so pretty." She says. She never could grasp that actually wanted to READ books not decorate. 2d

In honor of Sense and Sensibility - Just a Dashwood cocktail. "Carefully administer the dashes, one for each sister." Sadly my Angostura dashes just went flat. Drink still tastes yummy. ?

It's a truth universally acknowledged that there are a lot of new Pride and Prejudice variations in the book world right now. Pride and Prejudice with settings far from Jane Austen's England.
Now I feel the need to read the original. 🤓

Delightful as a good cup of Chai. Window into a world I know nothing about: Canada's Muslim Community. Fun story yet also tackles issues of stereotyping. Particularly loved Ayesha & Clara's friendship. Two very different women, yet they are friends, who look out for one another & are always there for each other. I think Jane Austen would approve. 💖💕

Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen
post image

For all my Love of Pride & Prejudice; I must say that Sense & Sensibility has one of the best Literary Heroes - Colonel Brandon. Now when I read this Classic I always see him as the perfection that is Alan Rickman from the movie. Colonel Brandon is a quiet unobtrusive man for the most part. However, when you need a Hero he always comes through. 💙💙💙💙💙

This made me hungry. So very hungry. You could almost smell the food coming through the pages. I always complain about the lack of dessert options at Indian restaurants. Here we have a chef making glorious Indian feasts that end with things like Saffron Creme Brulee. Yes there are some problematic moments, but then DJ would cook and I was in love. It's inspired me to cook. Appropriate on Julia Childs Birthday. 👨‍🍳🎂👩‍🍳

Earlier this year I saw Pride and Prejudice at Kansas City Repertory. It was the craziest thing. There was booty shaking dancing, Lydia drunkenly lounging over punch bowls, a very excited Mrs B, Wigs flying on stage as the actor playing Mary transformed to Mr. Bingley, and henceforth it will always be Lady Catherine de BURGH. It was incredibly witty and roll in the floor hilarious. 🤣🤣🤣

Pride | Ibi Zoboi

Almost a So - So for me. In this Retelling of P&P it's Zuri(Elizabeth) who Dislikes at First Sight. She continually judges Darius (Darcy) and even at Come Together moment never actually admits to it. It's 'Ok.Yeah.' and then she justifies her actions some more. Makes her a hard character to like. Maybe Author's plan? Never quite got Darcy's motovation either. Ending moved it to a Pick.

I love cats. But alas my Mr. Darcy does not. From time to time I look at Rescue sites and dream of kitten like this one. I would name it Jane Pawsten. Until then I love Book Cats like Footnote: "Normally the chair was Footnote‘s but the cat ceded it to her on the understanding that she would compensate by providing her lap. Arsenic dutifully compensated." ?

JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘d be surprised how someone can change. I had an ex fiancé who was dead set against cats, but I lived alone and I got one and then he was the biggest mush with the cat ever. He evolved into a cat lover. Cats are underrated in the States. 2w

Nothing makes my Bookworm heart happier than a series that ends well. Gail Carriger has woven a wonderful conclusion to Custard Protocol. It gave me Percy's story, charming new character Arsenic, and old favorites from Finishing School and Parasol Protectorate. My only complaint is that I wish Epilogue was about 50 pages longer. I just wanted to see so much more of these beloved characters. 😻

I've been saving these Modern Day Retellings of Pride and Prejudice for this month. Looking forward to seeing how the story works in different cultures. I've got Gin Austen for Cocktails and Be More Jane for Inspiration. (I'll tag them in the comments.) This month's Classic will Sense and Sensibility. I'm will be listening to it on Audible. Rosemund Pike has such a lovely voice. I'm sure it will be delightful.

I don't usually read Politics. I prefer to escape reality. Needed Nonfiction for #goodreadssummerreadingchallenge - Stranger than Fiction. My usual complaint with Nonfiction is that it's boring. This was wonderful! Interesting & Upbeat. Pete & Chasten's Romance would make awesome RomCom. On the political side, I like Mayor Pete's Positive and Practical approach to government. That and I really want Chasten to be First Gentleman.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Normally this early on I wouldn't pay much attention to Election. Mayor Pete came to my attention after reading an article this: https://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a26963386/chasten-buttigieg-twitter... 3w
