Räbeliechtli, Jane Austen Style

Oy. I haven't posted since June? Life is speeding along at such a pace, I can't process it. The little man in my life is pretty all-consuming. I can't believe it's already November! Obviously, I didn't manage my annual Twisted Austen story. I'm truly sorry about that, as I greatly enjoy the event. Look for a revival next year. NaNoWriMo begins today. I'm going to try to finish the project Read more of this blog post »

“Miss Morland, no one can think more highly of the understanding of women than I do. In my opinion, nature has given them so much, that they never find it necessary to use more than half.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“I use the verb 'to torment,' as I observed to be your own method, instead of 'to instruct,' supposing them to be now admitted as synonymous.”

Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

“Elinor was to be the comforter of others in her own distresses, no less than in theirs; and all the comfort that could be given by assurances of her own composure of mind, and a very earnest vindication of Edward from every charge but of imprudence, was readily offered.”

It was my pleasure Rachel. I hope you enjoy both Pemberley Manor and First Impressions. I hope to read your thoughts on both books here!

Rachel Hi, Alexa! Thanks for accepting my friend invite! I was thrilled when I saw you were a member of GoodReads! I received Pemberley Manor just a short while ago and hope to read it soon. Thanks SO MUCH for the cute cat note card with it! :) It was great to be one of the winners of your blog giveaway and I can't wait to read First Impressions!

Alexa Adams Thanks. I'm rereading in honor of the Emma premier on Sunday and have been adding my favorites as I go along.

SarahC I loved the Emma quote you just added -- I have been savoring that one for the last few days myself -- what a coincidence that you pulled out the same one.
