Announcement: Jane Austen Month

  I have decided to do something that might be a little crazy, okay it's a lotta crazy. I have decided to make September Jane Austen Month. I don't know if any other blogs do this, but I have decided to set aside the month of September to dedicate it to Miss Austen. During this month every blog post I upload will be dedicated to Jane Austen. I will be rereading my favorite of her novels as well as reading some of her novels that I have not read yet. Some things to look forward to this month:
 Book Reviews
Movie Reviews
And so much more!

        I strongly encourage anyone who wants to participate in Jane Austen Month to do so (please just give credit where it is due) and to incorporate it into your blog, YouTube channel, or wherever else you want to show your love for Jane Austen. I also have never done anything like this before, so please bear with me as this is likely to be an experience for me as well.
         Jane Austen Month starts September first and will go through the end of the month.



  1. The beauty of having your own blog, is it is totally yours! You can do whatever, whenever you want! Go for it!

  2. I like the idea of dedicating a whole month to an author. I'm not a huge fan of Jane Austen though. I have a few friends who are so I'm going to share this on FB for them.

  3. Such a good idea! Austen is an iconic author!

  4. A great idea, Baleigh! If there is anything the JAFF authors of Austen Authors can do to help, contact me and Regina Jeffers at: If nothing else, please share the event and your posts on our Facebook Group: Austen Authors Have fun! Sharon Lathan

Pride and Prejudice Vs. Emma

As some of you may know from my Five Favorite Classic Novels post: Emma and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen are two of my favorite classic novels so it only felt fitting to compare them to each other for the first post for Jane Austen Month.  I just want to make it clear that I love both of these novels and that they both have things that I enjoy about them.

1. Female Leads:
          In my opinion, Jane Austen has created some of the best literary characters of all time. The main characters that she creates are no exception to this rule.
          In Pride and Prejudice, it is Elizabeth Bennet. Witty, opinionated, and basically who every Austen fan strives to be like.  She is loyal to a fault, but she isn't afraid to disagree with someone. She, however, judges people before she even really knows them (Guilty!!!). She has incredible character development though, and she isn't afraid to admit that she is wrong when…

114 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Royal Wedding

So, I got done watching the live stream for the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle! I decided to post my thoughts here for you all to see. From the hats to the adorable royal kids to just the overall happy vibes at this wedding, this wedding was a joy to watch. I hope you all enjoy my 114 Thoughts I Had While Watching the Royal Wedding. Fair warning though, some of them might not make any sense, and please forgive any bad spelling, grammar, or punctuation as I was just typing these on my phone as I went. Thank you all again for reading!
My Thoughts So many hats!!!A lot of celebs Everyone looks, or most people anyway, very happy. This music is lit. I’m digging it. Alright. These people look less happy. I wonder if something is wrong. You conduct that band!I love the random outside shot with the birds for some reason. That car is moving very slowly. Is there a speed limit at royal weddings?And we’re back in the church. And back outside Who are these people?Aww both ladies are…

Ever, Jane Game Review

The front of Hatch's when you first enter the game.
So, I've been playing the game Ever, Jane for a while now, and I am just going to admit, right here and now that I am totally in love with it. The entire concept is just magical to me, and while there are some issues that need to be worked out (the game is still in open beta) the overall idea and concept of the game is wonderful. For those of you that have been following my blog, you know that I did a Jane Austen Month back last September, so I don't really think it was a surprise that I got into this game at all.
So, what is Ever, Jane?
Ever, Jane is an MMO game based on the world and works of Jane Austen. Set in the Regency in the Town of Tyrehampton your character is dropped off (in the game it's by either an aunt or uncle, but most people just make up their own background stories for their characters. More on that down below). Suddenly you are in charge of your own life in a brand new town that you know nothing abo…
