SPEND THE HOLIDAY WITH ELIZABETH & MR. DARCY: Pride & Prejudice Inspired Holiday Reads & Cozy Accessories

Austenesque/Pride & Prejudice Holiday Themed Reads & Cozy Accessories

Looking for something to read as the festive season winds to a close? Well turn off the TV and warm your heart with Christmas themed reads that will satisfy the Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice fan who can appreciate a good retelling or variation inspired by her work.

The one thing that we can all probably agree on is that reading a Holiday romance around this time of year makes everything feel just a little bit more magical.  There’s just something that makes us want to curl up somewhere cozy with a familiar, feel-good story.  Even though it may be cliché, the thought of sitting by a fireplace, reading nook, or getting into bed early to settle down with a new tome is a comforting and wonderful experience.  Nothing quite celebrates the feeling of the season like an engaging and utterly charming book.

Happy 241st Birthday Jane Austen!

Happy 241st Birthday to the lovely, genius and way ahead of her time, beloved English novelist, the one and only, JANE AUSTEN!

Worth re-posting every year (and slightly edited and updated) for your FYI...

Remembering and celebrating her birthday today, Jane Austen, the woman who wrote the original Pride and Prejudice novel (which had been made into several TV and Film adaptations including the 2005 film, Pride & Prejudice), which was her first (can you believe unsuccessful?!) submission to a publisher back in 1797 (218 years ago) titled "First Impressions" (later changed to "Pride and Prejudice"). She revised "First Impressions" and published it entitled "Pride and Prejudice" in 1813 (203 years ago, 11 months ago this year!).

Watch: Peter Wight in Netflix's The Crown starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith

I recently finished watching (in less than a day), Netflix's new original miniseries The Crown (The early reign of Queen Elizabeth II of England is portrayed) starring Claire Foy (Little Dorrit) and Matt Smith (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies). It premiered earlier this month, November 4th with ten episodes. Having not read any news (other than it was going to be on Netflix and I didn't know who the actors were going to be in the main cast either) or spoilers about this miniseries. I thought it would be done after 10 episodes, but it looks like, this was just season one and season two is coming soon. When? I don't know, but I sure can't wait! I got hooked watching this miniseries, since I love watching period dramas and especially with the royals or monarchies (ie. The Young Victoria, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Duchess, etc.). I thought this was a very good and a must-watch miniseries (I was fascinated by it, whether it was accurate or not about Queen Elizabeth's life story in her early reign) with a great ensemble cast, beautiful score, great production quality and writing. It got me hooked watching and what a pleasant surprise to see Peter Wight (aka P&P 2005 movie's own Mr. Gardiner) albeit in a cameo role as a Newspaper editor in Episode 6! I thought he looked familiar! I didn't know he was in this drama. So, that was interesting and yet so random at the same time. If you haven't seen this yet, I highly recommend you do. This Thanksgiving break would be the best time to binge-watch this, if you have the time to watch, of course.

Watch the trailer for The Crown below...
