Jane Austen Novels Ranked

       

            Okay, if you have been keeping up with my Jane Austen Calendar that I put out, you will know that this is not the blog post I was supposed to upload today. However, due to some time restraints and the fact that I have been awful at forgetting to do things lately, the calendar is going to be a bit mixed up these next 10 days of Jane Austen Month. 
          Now that that is out of the way I am here to rank all 6 of Jane Austen's novels! I will be ranking them based on my opinions of the novels. I hope you all enjoy!

6. Persuasion:
            As you might have read in my book review for Persuasion I could not get into this story at all really. I feel bad because I read this book when I wasn't quite in a good place so I don't know if this is a fair judgment of this novel, but still this book did not keep my attention the way it should have.  So, regardless of my feelings while reading it, this novel still makes the number 6 spot. 
5. Mansfield Park :
          I really like this novel, but I just don't like it as much as other Jane Austen works. I think it might be that I couldn't connect with the story as well as I could Austen's other works in this list. Regardless of that I did give this book a fairly positive review on my blog! 

4. Sense and Sensibility:
            This novel about two sisters and their complicated love and personal lives is a gem for every Austen fan. I really enjoyed this book and even rated it 3.5/5 stars on my book review for it. The only issue I really had was that it seemed to drag on in some places and I found myself not being able to concentrate on the novel as much. Still I really enjoyed this novel!

3. Northanger Abbey:
             This book is so good! This novel is a bit more cutesy then any of Austen's other works, and I honestly loved that about it. The overly romantic reader Catherine Morland and the sarcastically adorable Henry Tilney make this novel the amazing read that it is. I rated it 5/5 stars on my book review for it, so that should be proof that I love it!

2. Pride and Prejudice:
             Yes, Pride and Prejudice is my second favorite Jane Austen work, but I will assure you that the line between this novel and the number one on this list is a very thin line. This novel that follows the 5 Bennet sisters, but mostly Jane and Elizabeth and their love stories is a novel that I personally think everyone should read at least once in their lives. This novel is so good and I talked about it favorably whenever I did Pride and Prejudice: Revisited on my blog back at the beginning of this month! So, go check that out if you want to read it!

1. Emma:
           My all time favorite Jane Austen novel, this story follows Emma Woodhouse, the rich meddling little matchmaker who seems content with solving everyone else's problems while not fixing her own. This story has a great romance, great character development, and incredible writing. In my post Emma: Revisited I gave the novel 5/5 stars so you can read that if you want to know more of my thoughts on this novel!


I hope that you enjoyed this post! We are officially two thirds of the way done with Jane Austen Month and it has been so much fun so far!

Love,
Baleigh

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.

https://media.giphy.com/media/jDuKjA45JfDnq/giphy.gif  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…
