Everything Austen Challenge X Two Wrap-up

Last day of the Everything Austen Challenge and I am finished with not a day to spare!

Many thanks to Stephanie at Stephanie’s Written Word Blog for organizing and managing the Everything Austen Challenge and letting me spin-off my mini-challenge, Everything Austen Challenge X Two.

Here are my reviews of the books and movies I selected. I changed some of my selections from my original list, but that is a ladies perogative.

Love, Lies and Lizzie, by Rosie Rushton

Mr. Darcy Vampyre, by Amanda Grange

Prada and Prejudice, by Mandy Hubbard

Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, by Laurie Viera Rigler

Darcy and Anne, by Judith Brocklehurst

The Other Mr. Darcy, by Monica Fairview

According to Jane, by Marilyn Brandt

A Match for Mary Bennet, by Eucharista Ward

A Truth Universally Acknowledged, by Susannah Carson

Willoughby’s Return, by Jane Odiwe

Jane Bites Back, by Michael Thomas Ford

Sense and Sensibility (1971) movie

Phew! It was fun and I am ready for the next Austen reading challenge for 2010.

Many thanks to all who participated in my leg of the extended challenge. The winner of a copy of one of the books or movies that I read or watched will be drawn from all the participants who finished the Everything Austen Challenge X Two on January 1st, 2010.

Congratulations to all who met the challenge and completed it.

Everything Austen Challenge X Two

Everything Austen ChallengeWe are so happy to see that the Everything Austen Challenge at Stephanie’s Written Word blog has had such an outstanding response. As of today, there are over 115 participants ready and willing to read and or watch six Austen or Austen inspired books, or view movie adaptations and spinoffs over the next six months. Sign-ups continue through July 15th, so don’t delay. There is an abundance of all around Austen geekiness and prizes too! Here is our list of six choices to meet the challenge: 

Movies: 

Pride and Prejudice (1995)

Sense and Sensibility (1971) 

Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth in Pride and Prejudice (1995)

Books: 

Love, Lies and Lizzie, by Rosie Rushton

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, by Amanda Grange

The Other Mr. Darcy, by Monica Fairview

Darcy and Anne, by Judith Brocklehurst 

As we mentioned in our post on Jane Austen Today, we are very happy to participate – but fear that we shall meet six more quickly than we would like to reveal. So in the genteel spirit of Austen one-upmanship, we raise your ante of six Austen inspired books or movies to twelve by January 2010. That’s two Austen inspired books or movies a month. SO easy, you won’t even have to try, right? Here is our second set of movies and books: 

Movies: 

Clueless (1995)

Persuasion (1996) 

Cher and Dion in Clueless (1995)

Books:

Prada and Prejudice, by Mandy Hubbard

Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, by Laurie Viera Rigler

Darcy’s Hunger, by Regina Jeffers

Willoughby’s Return, by Jane Odiwe 

To participate, sign up for the Everything Austen Challenge and follow Stephanie’s protocol for reading/viewing and posting your choices. If you meet the Everything Austen Challenge X Two by reading and or viewing 12 Austen inspired books or movies by January 2010, you will be eligible not only for the drawing of copy of a Lost in Austen DVD, but also for a copy of a book or movie of your choice from my reading/viewing list that I am throwing in the pot. 

Hope everyone enjoys their choices. I am looking forward to mine.

Cheers, Laurel Ann
