I have always been a voracious reader and time has not changed that. Every year I like to read through everything written by Jane Austen. Over the last few years I’ve discovered some other books that I love that I think are perfect for the Jane Austen lover. So if you love her books you’ll love the ones I have on my list.
And with Mother’s Day just around the corner these are some great gift ideas!
1. Jane Austen: The Complete Collection– kindle edition (it’s only $1.99!)
We don’t have room in our tiny apartment for all of our books (or really any of our books) so I bought the kindle edition of all of her books. It’s so nice to carry them all with me wherever I go with the kindle app on my phone or when we are traveling using my Kindle Fire.
And I know most of us have read the most popular of her novels like Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Emma, and Persuasion but Jane Austen wrote some other great stories too! There is also Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park, and Lady Susan!
2. A Novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman (3 book series)
If you just cannot get enough of Elizabeth and Darcy this series is perfect. Told from Darcy’s point of view you may end up loving him even more after reading this series!
3. Death Comes to Pemberley (movie)
And if you love mysteries and want to watch something other than the BBC version of Pride & Prejudice (also available for free via Amazon Prime Instant Video) or the Keira Knightley version Death Comes to Pemberley is for you. I have to admit that Lydia was my favorite character in this. Her portrayal was too perfect. Best part is right now it is available on Netflix!
If that is still not enough for you and you still need more then this book is another fun read. And the kindle edition is FREE! There are 2 more books in the series but I have not read the second or third books yet. If they are as fun as the first one they will be fantastic.
5. George Knightley, Esquire (2 book series)
This is another great series that is told from Knightley’s point of view. It is written by a different author than the Darcy books but it is equally well done. I got this series for Easter and finished it in just a few days and it is now being passed around by my sister-in-laws. It’s now on my to-read every year list!
Obviously this is not a Jane Austen book but I ADORE this book. I read it twice in a row the first time I read it because the first time through was just not enough. I have a hard time putting it down. I just recently re-read it and it is still a favorite. And warning you may just love the guy in this book more than Darcy!
