The new handsome, clever, and rich adaptation of @emmafilm is like sorbet for the screen. Jane Austen’s reimagined protagonist, Emma Woodhouse, is so restless in her sleepy town that she misguidedly plays matchmaker without noticing the love that’s been there all along. 🌷

This week, I decided to add another design to my Jane Austen Collection of quotes to my #Society6 store, Bonny Lass Creatives, and I decided to go rather specific with this design, too.⠀
I was thinking about how a cute bag with a few board books in it would make a great baby gift. So, I opened the clip art and digital papers folder and selected those that would say baby very clearly.⠀
Since I have a bag already in my collection with a quote about a young lady, today, I went with a quote about a young man. This quote from Pride and Prejudice is, of course, referring to Mr. Bingley, but I thought that it also seems to be perfectly fitting for a sweet little boy.⠀
Now, I do have this quote in a simple blue patterned design (not baby-like at all), but I'm not sure if I upload that design as well or just leave it at this one. What do you think?⠀
'Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition.' ***************
I went to see the new Emma film adaption today. I really enjoyed it. I absolutely love Jane Austen novels and film and tv adaptions! #bookaddict#bookstagram#bookish#janeausten#emma#emmafilm

Hello everyone this week's Monday post is all about Pride and Prejudice.
I finally got around to reading Pride and Prejudice and I loved it! One of my favorite characters in this book, beside Eliza obviously, is Mrs. Bennet. One of my favorite scenes in the book was when Mrs. Bennet sent Jane to Mr. Bingley's on horseback, knowing there was a very good chance of rain, and Jane catching a cold, but staying the night at Mr. Bingley's wouldn't be so bad. Especially if it means the two grow closer. Which is exactly what happens. Mrs. Bennet clearly knows how to get things done.
If you would like to read my review of Pride and Prejudice check it out on my blog. If you haven't read the book and want to know what it's about check out my summary in the beginning of my post. To get to my blog click the link in my bio.
Some of you know how long I’ve been wishing for this, and now it’s finally happened:
We’re the incredibly happy parents of a little princess/cheeky monkey/troublemaker😻
You can be sure she’ll feature this feed in the future because I simply can’t stop taking her photo📸
Check out my story to hear more about her — you’ll also find it under the highlight “Our Furbaby”. Finally — what’s her name you may ask?
Well, we’ve considered many names really. I wanted something HP related for one, something enchanting like the patronus charm✨. But I’ve also been very tempted to call her Cirila because she reminds me soooo much of the Witcher princess with her silver fur and badass attitude.
However, we’re leaning towards Tigris Athena because 1. It’s after my first baby girls. 2. I experienced a sign on our trip that pointed towards Tigris when we were already considering it. 3. I’ve prayed to Athena a lot lately for courage, and it would be an homage to one of my favourite greek goddesses. 4. It’s bookish (Hunger Games, Greek Myths). It’s also way easier to call upon her using Tigris🤣
Happy Monday everybody 🌼
Hope your start to the week has been good. Today is actually my “Tuesday” so not as sleepy as yesterday 🙈
Emma is a classic that I would definitely want to read this year. Preferably in March. I don’t know why, but it has a March feel to it (whatever that is). .
I’m on a fence with Austen so far. I read Sense and Sensibility (meh) and Persuasion (yes!!) and waiting to read a third book by her to sway me (hopefully into a “yes!!!” category. .
🔸What is your favorite Austen? (Or if you haven’t read any, just a classic book)🔸 .

Lacock Abbey is a hidden jewel in Wiltshire. This lovely building has been set of films and TV series such as Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice.
*ORGULHO E PRECONCEITO, Jane Austen*
Avaliação: 5 / 5⭐
“Eu não teria dificuldade em perdoar o orgulho dele, se não tivesse ferido o meu”
O segundo livro da irretocável Jane Austen, sem dúvida o mais famoso dessa sublime escritora, publicado em 1813, com quatro meses já era o livro da moda na época. Uma das leituras mais agradáveis que já fiz em minha vida, “Orgulho e Preconceito” ganha o lugar dos melhores livros que já li.
Nessa obra prima da literatura inglesa, Jane Austen nos apresenta personagens inesquecíveis. A irresistível Elizabeth Bennet e, o pretensioso aristocrata Sr. Darcy são figuras presentes em todo o enredo da obra. Diferentes aspectos são inseridos durante essa elegante narrativa, orgulho e preconceito é o tema constante, mas também vemos a dicotomia em ascendência e desprezo social, julgamentos antecipados, escândalos e sofrimento amoroso, tudo colocado de forma memorável pela autora.
Que ironia refinada a autora traz em sua escrita, suas observações meticulosas do comportamento humano dão um toque de diversão incontestável durante a leitura. Não há como deixar de se apaixonar por essa autora, e principalmente por essa obra, são tantas reviravoltas de tirar o fôlego, que as últimas 180 páginas li de uma só vez.
Esse ano coloquei o desafio de ler as 6 obras de Austen, essa foi a 2 leitura e não vejo a hora de começar a próxima. Ainda mais nessa nova coleção da editora @editoramartinclaret , com capa dura e estilo inspirado nos bullet journals, edições que só aumentam o prazer da leitura.
Não deixem de se encantar pela maravilhosa Elizabeth Bennet!
“With the mention of Derbyshire, there were many ideas connected. It was impossible for her to see the word without thinking of Pemberley and its owner.”⠀
Love this Jane Austen quote! What an apt epigraph for my new book bundle.⠀ ⠀ #PrideandPrejudice#JaneAusten#BookBundle#NewRelease
QOTD: what are you reading right now?
I found myself in a bit of a reading slump last week - I was under the weather and had a string of DNF books I just couldn’t stick with. Over the weekend I finally settled on re-reading Jane Austen’s “Emma” and am back in my groove! I truly forgot how funny and entertaining “Emma” is.
Happy Monday, friends!

My latest reads and some fun Mardi Gras loot 📖🎭🎊. I had to read Sense and Sensibility for class and I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would! Im really looking forward to read more Austen now 👍🏾. Then, I read My Sister the Serial Killer for my book club. It wasn’t what I expected at all but I couldn’t set it down and I enjoyed it in the end (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️). So far, this is only book I’ve read for #readblacklitbingo 🖤. Also, swipe to see me in some fun mardi gfas beads and loot from the parades I went to this past week and a half!

Happy birthday to @rosevictoriawilliams ! So full of energy, ambition and such a kind heart 🥰 Here's a before and after - who says young ppl don't need lifting facials?! .
My current #janeausten collection, including a felted Jane ornament. Or is she an action figure??? SO excited to see the new Emma movie soon (March 6, apparently!). My premier item in this stack is the Sense and Sensibility screenplay and diary, from my favorite movie, AUTOGRAPHED by EMMA THOMPSON!!!! Or, Queen Emma as I call her.
What is your favorite Jane Austen book? Also, bonus question: Sanditon, yay or nay?
Following the antics of a young woman, Emma Woodhouse, who lives in Georgian- and Regency-era England and occupies herself with matchmaking - in sometimes misguided, often meddlesome fashion- in the lives of her friends and family.
If you are a fan of Jane Austen’s novels such as “Pride And Prejudice” and “Sense And Sensibility.” You would dive right into Emma. The cinematography is breathtaking. Each frame of the movie is an art piece. Emma portrayed by Anya Taylor Joy is young and fresh face new comer who I predict you will see her in allot of upcoming movies. Emma is considered to be a promising almost perfect young lady who has allot of suitors who want her hand in marriage, but rather succumb to their wishes she turns them away and prefers to matchmake other of her lady friends. Her secret is unbeknown to others, her deepest unconditional love, and affection towards her father whom she doesn’t want to leave him behind. In those days you had to marry into grand wealth to continue your comfortable life. As a viewer, I enjoyed the witty writing of Jane Austen’s novel and the beautiful ending. Emma does find love! I recommend this film. #codywizman#codsters#coffeewithcodyllc#emma#janeausten#anyataylorjoy#billnighy#beautifulmovie
Seguimos con el reto de clásicos, esta vez he tenido que cambiar el orden porque no tenían ningún libro de los dos que pedí en la biblioteca de mi ciudad y han tenido que pedirlos en otras de otros lugares de la región, este me ha llegado primero, de una biblioteca a casi una hora de la mía, he tenido que esperar una semana y retrasar un poco el reto, ya que había cogido el hilo otra vez. He de decir que este libro me lo recomendó @jane_morland_books para el reto de @martinarumas y @carmenandresreyes teníamos que elegir uno de Jane Austen y estaba indecisa, así que gracias a Lorena estoy conociendo esta lectura aventurera por lo que ha costado conseguirla, me está gustando, aunque es un poco lineal, ya os contaré lo que me parece "la abadia de Northanger" ¿Lo habéis leído? ¿Os gusta Jane Austen? ¿Cuál es vuestro libro favorito de esta autora? Os deseo una feliz noche ❤️✨🤗 #laabadiadenorthanger#janeausten#janeaustenbooks#retoliterario#janeaustenfan
Emma is a perfectly pleasant period film, I'm not very familiar with the source material written by Jane Austen so I went into this one blind. Anya Taylor-Joy is very good in the lead role and Miranda Hart and Bill Nighy are both fairly funny throughout. I did however feel that the films dragged in parts and felt significantly longer than its 2 hour 4 minute run time. This is likely due to the lack of plot, not much happens throughout the film and the characters and locations are very repetitive. The costume/production design is very good however. 6/10 #emma#film#review#janeausten#odeonlimitless#period#costumedesign#anyataylorjoy#billnighy#cinematography#cinema

🙏Un petit coin de chez moi 🙏
😶Ce soir, pas de partage de livre, juste un petit aperçu d’un rituel qui m’apaise...
✨C’est la rentrée à l’école, la reprise de cette course effrénée (que bien des parents connaissent!😱😂😰)et ces derniers temps, j’ai beaucoup de déceptions amicales...
Une bougie 🕯, la contemplation de d’une jolie illustration ❣️ (que je change au fil de mes humeurs, des saisons), celle d’une belle couverture de livre posé...
✨J’aime écouter le silence et bien évidement, ouvrir un livre pour déconnecter et me ressourcer 🙏✨🙏
. 🌙✨Douce nuit mes étoiles✨🌙
Hello booksta ! 🥰
Lecture terminée ! 🌟
Je suis saisie d'une profonde tristesse ce soir 😭 Je dis au revoir à Elizabeth et Fitzwilliam Darcy... J'ai vraiment adoré cet univers ! Je me suis attachée au caractère des personnages, j'en ai détesté, j'ai eu honte à la place de Lizzy en lisant les dialogues avec sa mère, j'étais folle de rage, profondément triste, pleine d'espoir ou incroyablement heureuse tout au long du livre (autant dans le journal que dans le récit d'origine ou dans l'œuvre de @lhattie_haniel_romanciere). Vraiment je suis fan de Jane Austen ! .
First day back after half-term and already have a list of things I want to do as long as my arm! 🙈
Luckily I came home to my first Classic & Coffee Bookclub subscription and the extra Emma Book Crate I ordered from @bookishlyuk

From my last novel, set in the 1960s. ‘The House Near Fallowfield’. She made her way back to her own front door. She found Bernard waiting outside. He grinned when he saw her. ‘So now you're gardening in mid winter.’ ‘Oh there were one or two things Albert wanted to get done and I was helping him. He's got a real garden with grass not like my silly, paved maze full of gnomes and fish. If I stay here I think I'll change it all.’ ‘Oh yes. Those gnomes are dangerous.’ She looked at him. ‘Why do you say that?’ ‘I hurt myself and almost ripped my trousers on a gnome's peaked cap just a moment ago. Almost lost my keys and a wallet. They fell out as I stumbled over it.’ ‘Someone lost their cigarettes and keys here the other night. An intruder we thought. We found a broken gnome, a packet of cigarettes and a keyring with a Catholic saint on it.’ ‘Well it wouldn't have been my keyring. I stopped praying to saints a long time ago. And I don't smoke.’ ‘Yes, you do. I saw you smoking the other night.’ ‘I don't really smoke. Only if I go out and have cigarettes on me. I play a lot of tennis and smoking doesn't help you if you play sports.’ She went into the kitchen and put the kettle on. There was a knock on the door. Bernard opened it. Still in the kitchenette Frankie heard voices in a foreign language. Clearly not French. She thought Italian or perhaps Spanish. She hurried to the door. ‘Who is it?’ she asked. ‘It's my friend, Salvador. I asked him in for a cup of tea, too. I hope that's all right.’ Salvador was standing by the door, still open behind him. His jet black hair slicked back, a little black line of a moustache over his upper lip. A heavy overcoat, worn as if it were a cape, hung from his shoulders. ‘Good morning, Frankie. I had a message for Bernard and as I knew he had come to visit you, I came over looking for him.’ The gate in the front garden creaked open and the two men turned around. Albert came up the garden path and stood on the doorstep.
Happy Friday! Do you have any of the new @chilternpublishing editions yet? I think Emma is my favorite cover out of the new ones. What’s yours? *
What do you have planned for the weekend? My mom is coming to stay with me and I’m excited to take her around and spend time together. Have a good weekend!
