The Jane Austen Book Club: Northanger Abbey

Time for a short little blurb before I turn of Parks & Recreation and settle in to read for the night. (Side note, how awesome is Leslie Knope? Love her!)

But last week on my way home from the wedding, I thought back to the one time I met the Bride's mother, and I'd been reading at the time. Reading Pride & Prejudice, but when I told her, she got a little flustered and said she'd never read it.

To be completely honest, I don't know many who actually have read it.

I promise. I won't judge you if you haven't read it. I could barely finish Insurgent, and couldn't get into Allegiant, despite them being the most popular YA books right now (After Hunger Games and Twilight). People like what they like, and will read what they want.

Since it's been years since I last read any Jane Austen, though, I decided now would be a good time to read through them again. On the way home last weekend, I started reading Northanger Abbey, the story of young girl who meets a handsome clergyman, and visits his family at their estate, where her imagination gets the better of her. It was Jane Austen's first novel, but it wasn't published first.

At the end of the month, I'll write up a blurb about the book, and if you join me, feel free to write up your own review and thoughts for us to discuss.

Have a great September!
