AUSTEN IN AUGUST is an annual event hosted by Roof Beam Reader. The goal of this event is to read as many of Jane Austen's works as possible, during the month of August. Biographies, audiobooks, spin-offs, re-reads also count. I'm so excited to participate in Austen in August, as I'm a great fan of Jane Austen and I always try to find reasons (although I don't really need them) to reread her novels.
The book I'll try to read during the event are:
- Mansfield Park. This is the only work of Jane Austen that I've read only a few times. Time to fix that!
- Love and Friendship. I actually haven't read this one and it's about time.
- Edmund Bertram's Diary. It will work as a perfect companion to my reread of Mansfield Park.
- Emma: A Modern Retelling. Because it's been a long time that I wanted to read The Austen Project.
- Sense and Sensibility. Another Austen Project.
- Northanger Abbey. Yet another Austen Project.
