Bought:

Lady Susan / The Watsons / Sandition
by Jane Austen
edited by Margaret Drabble
-Classic, Romance
Amazon | Goodreads

=====> After browsing the used book section of Book Passage, I found this gem. I still have yet to read The Watsons and Sandition.


AND binge watching: on Netflix

Gilmore Girls (2000)
tv series, season one
Creator: Amy Sherman-Palladino
Starring: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel
-Comedy, Drama | imdb | my rating: 4

A drama centering around the relationship between a thirtysomething single mother and her teen daughter living in Stars Hollow, Connecticut.

=====> I have been wanting to watch this whole series and have seen episodes here and there. For some reason the autumn season has put me in the mood to get into the cozy Stars Hollow world.


AND watched: on DVD

Outlander (2014)
tv series, season 1, pt2
Creator: Ronald D. Moore
Based on book by: Diana Gabaldon
Starring: Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan
-Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi | imdb | my rating: 5

Follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, where she is immediately thrown into an unknown world where her life is threatened. When she is forced to marry Jamie Fraser, a chivalrous and romantic young Scottish warrior, a passionate relationship is ignited that tears Claire's heart between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

=====> I finally got the second part DVD of season one to catch up. Loving how this is produced and plan to listen to the podcasts that Ronald has created to go along with each episode. He is good at sharing details and fun tidbits.


Currently flipping through: from the library

Young Jane Austen:
Becoming a Writer
by Lisa Pliscou
-Biography
Amazon | Goodreads

=====> To coincide with my Jane Austen-ish virtual book event. IF you haven't already, check it out (here) with giveaways :-)

  1. Looks like someone is on a bit of a Jane Austen kick at the moment huh! I never did enjoy any of the classics myself-a bit too slow and over descriptive for me I'm afraid! Have a great week in books and entertainment!

  2. I love Gilmore Girls, and binge-watched that show on Netflix a while ago, but wouldn't mind giving it another go. But...there are four new mini-series events coming, reprising the characters! Yay!

    Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

  4. My daughter used to watch Gilmore Girls, but I confess I've never seen it. Sounds like you have been having a lot of Austenesque enjoyment and I'm happy for you <3

  5. I read that book (Lady Susan, The Watsons, and Sanditon) just this spring when I was getting ready for the Love & Friendship movie. My copy had nice editorial notes that were so helpful. And that Young Jane Austen book is so cute. I got to read that one for a review a year or so ago.

    Outlander...sigh. I've watched half the first season and need to get caught up. Love the book series so I do want to watch the TV adaption.

    Have a good week!
