everything austen challenge – officially over

Friday, January 1, 2010 |

Unofficially, will continue forever. I mean…wait. I got all that Austen out of my system, didn’t I? Err…

The Everything Austen Challenge was hosted by Stephanie’s Written Word, and it was a huge success. That’s not just me talking, either. I met many people throughout the blogosphere with a passion for Austen, and we all enjoyed the challenge together. But let’s get to the fun part: where I list what I was supposed to watch/read, and then what I DID watch/read.

My original list:

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre

Prada and Prejudice

Emma (1996)

Becoming Jane (2007)

Lost in Austen (2008)

My extended list – Everything Austen (x2):

Darcy and Anne

Me and Mr. Darcy

Persuading Annie

Sense and Sensibility (2008)

Persuasion (2007)

I Have Found It [Kandukondain Kandukondain] (2000)

What I ACTUALLY read/watched (click for link to my review post):

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters

Emma (1996)

Becoming Jane (2007)

Darcy and Anne

Sense and Sensibility (2008)

Persuasion (2007)

Mansfield Park (2007)

Captain Wentworth’s Diary

Northanger Abbey (2007)

PLUS, my dad reviews Lost in Austen (2008) and a look at an old favorite – Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field.

In case you weren't counting, that adds up to 12 items, though a couple of them creatively filled the 'requirements.' So I hereby declare that I completed the challenge! In 2010 I hope to read: Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, Prada and Prejudice, According to Jane, Mr. Darcy and Me, Scones and Sensibility and Persuading Annie. And if a couple more should pop up in my reading list? All the better!

Miss Austen is a little addictive, isn't she?!

I love Jane Austen, but am afraid of the spin-offs.
