Everything Austen Challenge Update

I've just been going like crazy on my list! I'm actually just going to keep going on everything Austen until the deadline. I want to see how many I can get in in the next five months.

Watched From My List:

  1. Pride and Prejudice (2005)
  2. Sense and Sensibility (Emma Thompson)
  3. Emma (Gwyneth Paltrow)
  4. Persuasion (newer version)
  5. Pride and Prejudice: A Latter-day Comedy
  6. Sense and Sensibility (2007)
I still have P&P (1995) to watch!

Read From My List:
  1. Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict
I still have Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict (in progress), Confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Intimations of Austen, Mr. Darcy, Vampyre.

Watched Not On My List:
  1. Lost in Austen
  2. Persuasion (1995)
Read Not On My List:
  1. Jane Austen For Dummies
There are quite a few more movies in the works that I'm going to be watching and I really want to reread Austen's original novels and finally read Mansfield Park. I also am looking forward to some fan-fiction that I've read reviews on from fellow Austen Challengers! It looks like a great last half of the year!


  1. I'm not sticking to the list alone either. In fact I've read/watched things not in the list more than the ones I have in the list. But you're right, I just want to go on with anything Austen that I can find, regardless of having completed the contest.

    P&P 1995 will be awesome fun too! Looking forward to your review :)

  2. Wow! You really have been whacking them off your list. I've found myself watching/reading more stuff that's not on my list than that which is. I just watched Mansfield Park last night, and it was interesting! Hope you enjoy reading the book. I still need to read "Sense and Sensibility."

    Out of the Austen novels you've read so far which one has been your favorite?

  3. I would have to say P&P is my all-time favorite, but Persuasion is a close second with Sense and Sensibility not far behind.

  4. Wow--you're having fun with this. I could not have imagined a better challenge--love, love Austen!

  5. Looks like you're making great progress. Best of luck with everything else!


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
