A Very Jane Filled June


It's no secret that I love Jane Austen. Last June when I heard that Misty of Book Rat would be hosting an event called Jane In June, I was thrilled. An entire month devoted to Jane Austen and adaptations of her work? Sounds like my kind of event!

Suffice it to say I will be posting a few Jane-ish reviews and maybe even have a few giveaways for you guys here on Consumed by Books. In addition to all of the great posts by Misty and other bloggers, this year Misty has organized a read along. She hosted a poll over at her blog to see what book Jane In June participants wanted to read, and Pride and Prejudice is the winner! Misty has broken the novel into segments, and every Wednesday participants will respond to questions or a prompt about that week's reading in either a written post or a vlog (spoiler alert: I plan on vlogging). What a cool idea, right? Plus, if you haven't already picked it up, Pride and Prejudice is a must read.

Instead of just listening to me blather about how awesome the read along will be, stop by Misty's blog and check out her post which has complete details. I hope everyone is excited to celebrate all things Jane Austen!

  1. I've been meaning to read more Jane Austen and the adaptations, especially Prom & Prejudice. I may have to join in on this. :-)
