What My Daughter is Reading - July 2

What My Daughter is Reading is brought to you courtesy of Jill at The Well-Read Child. You get to let everyone know what your child is reading so that we can all find new and exciting reading material.

The Amazing Dancer and I are both reading in the Everything Austen Challenge at Stephanie's Written Word.

The challenge runs from July 1 - January 1, 2010 and you complete six Austen-themed books and/or movies.

The Amazing Dancer is reading 5 books and watching 1 movie:
  • Austenland by Shannon Hale
  • Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
  • Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman
  • Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard
  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
  • Pride and Prejudice movie with Kiera Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen
I'm going to read 5 books and watch 1 movie also:
  • Austenland by Shannon Hale (this will be my 3rd reading!)
  • Emma by Jane Austen
  • Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding
  • Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard
  • Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo
  • Clueless with Alicia Silverstone
As you can see, we have some overlap. It will be fun to discuss things as we go along. Of course, everything is subject to change, but these are our plans!


  1. Oooohh--I'll have to check out the Everything Austen challenge! "Emma" is my all time favorite book, and I wrote my thesis on Jane Austen. You and The Amazing Dancer might like the YA novel called "Cassandra's Sister" written by Veronica Bennett (wonderfully appropriate last name!)

  2. The everything Austen is a challenge I'd probably not finish. My post is here.

  3. Thanks so much for joining my challenge! Austenland is one of my favorite Austen inspired books!!

  4. Ooohh Austen! Reading Emma right now! I'll have to go check out the challenge :)

  5. Oooh...I loved Prada and Prejudice and Enthusiasm! Both were fun reads targeted towards younger audiences. I've never actually read a Jane Austen book, but Austenland looks awesome. Enjoy!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
