If ever a book deserved a BIG birthday bash it's Pride and Prejudice. So me and Ash over at Typing Tiara decided to throw it a birthday bash blogger style. And not just because Mr. Darcy still makes us swoon. Let's talk about the fact that Jane Austen was a female author in a time that wasn't very friendly to females, the fact that her heroine had a mind of her own (heck yeah!) and that this is one of the only women-written novels studied in most high schools (YAY for it, BOO for the education system).
What does this call for? A READ-A-LONG of course! During January let's all read Pride & Prejudice together. Since it's almost impossible to review Pride and Prejudice for those of us who have read it over and over and over and over again, I thought it might be fun to also watch your FAVORITE adaption to compare the stories. Or if you're more capable than me you can just review the book.
For me that means I'll be rewatching The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (see what I did there? See how I found an excuse to watch them again? Not that I need one but this "time wasting" will now be legit blog business).
List of potential Pride & Prejudice adaptions:
- The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
- BBC Mini series with Colin Firth
- BBC Mini series I just discovered on Netflix
- Lawrence Oliver
- 2005 version
- Bride and Predjudice (because why not)
- Bridget Jones Diary
- Lost in Austen
If you're participating use the button belowand add me and Ash over at Goodreads. On January 28th come back to Galavanting Girl Books and post you're links to your Pride & Prejudice blogs and we'll all come together to swoon over Mr. Darcy and pretend that we're Elizabeth Bennet, again.
