CELEBRATING PRIDE & PREJUDICE 200th ANNIVERSARY

RETELLING JANE AUSTEN AND FAN FICTION

pandppartyhop1

I’m a sucker for Jane Austen. I’ve read the books and have seen every BBC and American production made. I also enjoy modern stories based on ANYTHING by Jane Austen. So, I decided to share some of the ones I’ve read in honor of Alyssa Goodnight and Courtney @ Stiletto Storytime‘s Pride and Prejudice Anniversary Party Blog Hop. I am looking forward to reading Alyssa’s Jane Austen inspired books Austentatious and Austensibly Ordinary.

My short and sweet fan letter to Jane Austen,

Thank you for creating some of the most memorable characters EVER! I’ve loved getting lost in their lives, the settings, the romance, the stories. Swoon. Love and appreciate how you wrote some strong female main characters we could admire and male characters who love and respect them. May all your books be read and loved and cherished for hundreds and hundreds of years to come.

xo,

Liza

Thanks so much for participating in the event Liza! I knew as a fellow Austen fan that you would want to join in. Such an exciting milestone…it’s amazing when you think about it that something written over 200 years ago still impacts us the way it does today!
