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…

13 Things to Expect From Jane Austen Month

In case I haven't been talking about it way too much, Jane Austen Month starts September 1st here at Baleigh's Better Life. The idea behind the month is to not only celebrate one of my favorite authors but also to give me the chance (*cough* motivation) to read some of the works I haven't gotten around to yet. We (I say we because I really want anyone who wants to participate in this to do so) will be reading, rereading, reviewing, comparing, discussing, and just be having lots of fun this coming month.
Day 1: Pride and Prejudice Vs. Emma- This blog post will be all about comparing my two favorite Austen works.
Day 2: Pride and Prejudice Revisited- This is all about getting to talk about what I think of Pride and Prejudice now (or after I reread it in a few days.).
Day 3: Northanger Abbey Book Review
Day 4: Sense and Sensibility Book Review
Day 5: Emma Revisited
Day 6: Mansfield Park Revisited

Day 7: Persuasion Book Review
Day 8: Jane Austen Movies Ranked- Wh…

Jane Austen's Heroes and Scoundrels Ranked

A few days ago I did my blog post over ranking Jane Austen's Heroines. I had a lot of fun picking and choosing which female characters would go where in the list. I have decided to do the same thing today, but with Austen's men. Now, like the blog post about her heroines, I will only be talking about the main love interests in the stories. Which means that there will be more characters listed here than in the one about heroines. Basically, if they were interested in the main character or the main character was interested in them (or if everyone thought they liked each other *cough* Frank Churchill *cough*)  they ended up on this list.

14. Mr. Willoughby:
       Breaking one of our main characters hearts? Check. Getting someone pregnant and then abandoning them? Check.  Going after a rich woman because he got disinherited for knocking up a girl? Check. Willoughby is one of those Austen characters that does a complete 180. At the beginning, you are thinking that he is a good cha…
