  1. Just wanted to say that I look forward to your review of Secrets in the Snow <3

  2. Sounds like an interesting few days. Are the giveaways open to international readers like me? I live in the UK..

    1. P.S. Sorry, forgot to say that my second favourite Jane Austen novel is Persuasion, not least cos of that swoon-worthy letter.

      Also, when you check out the free colouring page from LitCube, it says it's a quote from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, when it's actually a quote from the 2005 film adaptation.

  3. My second most favorite Jane Austen Novel is Mansfield Park ♡ Thank you

  4. Hey, I'm twinsies with Linda Romer because my second favorite JA is Mansfield Park. :) But I also have to say that Persuasion is my top favorite instead of good old P&P. Actually, I love all her novels so I'm happy for the event. :)
    I've got Secrets in the Snow to review as well. Looking forward to your thoughts on the others.

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  5. Hi,

    my second favorite is EMMA. It's a fun read and fun to view as a movie. I love Mr Knightley just as much as I do not like Frank Churchill.


  6. Hi,
    Sense and Sensibility is my 2nd favorite. I love double love stories. Team Marianne but I grown to love Elinor! rearadmiral00 at gmail dot com

  7. I'm so glad I came across your Jane Austen Event!! I do adore Pride and Prejudice, but I love Emma just as much!! I just love all the characters and their interactions, it's so much fun to read, no matter how many times I've read it, seen the movies, or read novels inspired by it! Thank you!
