Today marks a very special day for Jane Austen fans. On this day in 1813 the novel that brought us Mr Darcy, Elizabeth Bennet, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, and many more memorable characters, was published for the first time. It has arguably become the most successful and most well-loved of all Jane Austen’s novels, inspiring many television and film adaptations, and hundreds of spin-off stories and sequels.
It is my all time favourite story, and one I just can’t put down no matter how many times I have read it! To celebrate this special day, I have compiled a list of top 5’s all with a Pride and Prejudice theme. I hope you’ll share yours with me too.
Firstly, a belated Happy New Year! I’ve been away from blogging for a while so apologies to my followers (this is what happens when you work for a gift company at Christmas!) But I’m back now and very excited as later this month marks the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice!
From other blogs I’ve been reading, I’m not the only one who is set to celebrate on the 28th so I thought I’d try something a little different! I would love to hear from other Jane Austen fans about why you love this book and include your comments in a special tribute post on the 28th January: the day that Pride and Prejudice was published in 1813.
