Austen August Wrap-Up and Concluding Thoughts

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately Austen August has now come to an end and it’s time for me to wrap-up everything I’ve read. I really loved immersing myself in Jane’s world and felt that I began to understand her, why she writes, what she was really writing and her story so much better.

I only managed to read 3 books (Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park and Emma), which was 2 less than I was planning to read. I am definitely going to continue reading the last 2 remaining Austen novels at another point of the year.

My favourite out of the 3 novels I read was definitely Pride and Prejudice; I loved Lizzie and all her sisters, I thought the plot flowed so well and all the characters were well developed. My least favourite of the 3 was Emma. As previously mentioned in my review of the book, I found it to be quite slow in terms of pace and its ability to keep me hooked.

Despite this, I truly did enjoy reading and exploring Austen’s life and I’m so glad that I chose to dedicate August to her story. I think I’m more in love with Austen now than I’ve ever been before. I’m even considering dedicating another month to another author (perhaps a Dickens December…?).

As I’m currently on holiday, blog posts will resume properly from the 11th September. Hope you all have an amazing couple of weeks!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Pride and Prejudice is definitely the best novel out of those three. In fact I always think Emma and Mansfield Park are her weaker novels, or they are for me, as I couldn’t get into them in the same way. I hope you enjoy Persuasion and Northanger Abbey when you get around to them!

      1. Yes, I have. I really liked both of them but Northanger Abbey was my favourite out of the two. It has a really different feel to it, and you get to see more of Jane Austen herself in the novel which was nice.
