Jealousy in July: Jane Austen – Seeing Green? – Plus Giveaway! — 41 Comments

  1. I enjoyed the post. It is interesting about Jane Austen’s contemporaries and how she may have been jealous, but if she were to come back today I believe she would be shocked, pleasantly so, as to how popular her stories are. I love the excerpts. The Regency is my preferred era, but enjoyed these modern excerpts. Thank you for the generous give away.

    • Thanks for the kind words, Deborah. So many great writers and artists weren’t famous during their lives…but their legacies live on. Jane was no exception. So glad we have her books to savor and enjoy. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the chance to win– I’ve been drooling over these books for a little while now and would love to color them! Lizzy will definitely have to wear something green at some point!

  3. Wonderful post. Love the excerpt. I miss Emma. I have not spent any real time with her lately. I must very soon!

  4. Dang! Now I want to read the book even more than I did before! It’s on my wishlist, but perhaps it will be moving to the top…. 😉

  5. Thanks for this lovely giveaway and beautiful post. I would love to win the coloring books since coloring was my passion when I was much younger. I enjoy the soothing element and how it allows me to travel back in time which is wonderful. My left hand and wrist could use this therapy since my recent wrist surgery requires movement for full mobility.

  6. What a lovely tidbit of a story! I’ve been debating getting these books (I have an extremely limited Kindle budget, dependent on how many freelance essay grading jobs I get), but after reading this vignette, I am quite tempted to buy the book. And that’s saying a lot since I am not usually an Emma fan; she tends to annoy the bejeebers outta me. 😉

    Thanks for sharing it with us, Katie!!

    Susanne 🙂

  7. Yup have to continue the series! I enjoyed ‘What Would Lizzie Bennet Do’ and this excerpt has me wanting to know how Emma and Mark come together after such an auspicious start! LOL! Thank you for your generous giveaway!

    • Thank you, Carole. I’m glad you liked the first book and hope you enjoyed this peek at Emma’s first encounter with Mark. Thanks for the comment and good luck in the contest. xx

  8. I love the way this story is going – poor Emma! Obviously, now I NEED to know where this goes from here….

  9. Ironically, long before adult coloring books caught on I have saved my own box of crayons and a large coloring book (gospel scenes). I would probably keep these books on shelves and never really color in them. The story looks interesting. I have found many modern JAFF to be excellent after finally deciding to take that first step into reading one.

  10. Coloring books are fun, even at my advanced age. Lol. Like you, I probably would not color in either book; I’d want to keep them looking pristine and perfect.

    Thank you for commenting and thanks for the kind words. 🙂
