In Which Trai Enters a Sense and Sensibility Challenge
Hello, all! It's 2011 and I'm starting off the New Year by entering a Jane Austen-related challenge. (Eek!) I'm still doing the Heyer challenge (and I'm way behind on that one!), but this one runs the whole year and seems like so much fun!
Sense and Sensibility is my favorite Austen, and it's one of those that people love or hate--many of them don't agree with the book's final resolution. I love it! There aren't many S&S sequels out there, but Laurel Ann of Austenprose (link in the sidebar) has been great enough to make up a list and pose a challenge to us Austen readers.
I'm entering at the level of Aficionada, which means I have 9 to 12 selections to read or watch before 2012. My choices are:
* Sense and Sensibility (Marvel Illustrated), Nancy Butler and Sonny Liew
* Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters
* Sense and Sensibility: The Screenplay and Diaries, by Emma Thompson and Lindsay Doran
* The Dashwood Sisters' Secrets of Love, by Rosie Ruston
* The Dashwood Sisters Tell All, by Beth Pattillo
* The Third Sister, by Julia Barrett
* The Three Weismanns of Westport, Cathleen Schine
* Willoughby’s Return, by Jane Odiwe
* I Have Found It (Kandukondain Kandukondain)
I don't know what my schedule will be yet--it depends on the library and all that--but I'm definitely excited and hoping to complete this challenge. Go to Laurel Ann's blog if you'd like to sign up for yourself!
