Austen in August: A Reading Event Hosted by Adam

Oh my... It's ages since my last post, and I truly wish I had more time to blog and to socialise. I haven't even been on Twitter for God knows how long. Work has been so crazy lately!!! And, I am missing my blogosphere friends. :-(

Despite being so busy with work, I have not neglected reading. So far I have read 10 classics, which is what I aimed at this year, and I've also read 13 other books. That means that I have read 23 books until now, and my goal for this year was to read 30 books at least. So, I'm on schedule...

Originally, I planned to read all major works by Jane Austen in spring, but I got tempted by other books, which is why I still have to (re)read Emma. I'm also participating in the What Would Jane Do?, The Romance, and the 2013 Women challenges, and have some Austenish books on my TBR list. Hence, when I got an invitation to the Austen in August reading event, which is hosted by Adam from Roof Beam Reader, I couldn't say no. So, thanks for the invitation and for hosting the event, Adam. My answer is: YES!

For this event I'm planning to read:

1. Emma by Jane Austen (for the obvious reason)
2. Austenland by Shannon Hale (because many people say it's one of the best reimaginations)
3. Sanditon, The Watsons, and Lady Susan by Jane Austen (if I still have time, after finishing the above two, and because I've never read these)

So, that's that. My sign-up post for the Austen in August reading event. If you'd like to join, just hop over to Adam's blog, read the details and sign-up too!

See you in August, when, hopefully, I will have more time to write reviews and chat!


  1. Woo hoo! Glad you're back in the "world" and joining us for Austen in August. It's a fun time - looking forward to it again this year. :)

  2. Welcome back! Look forward to reading your Austen posts.
