The beginnings of a Jane Austen collection

Some people attribute a love of certain movies to their book counterparts. It’s wonderful albeit sometimes disappointing to find movies that try to live up to the stories, characters, plot that is set-up and given thorough detail in the book. For this certain case though, I’d like to share that the opposite happened to me. My discovery of the book, and later on the author, is all thanks to a movie.

I became a fan of Victorian, Regency Era-related literature back in High School when my friend introduced Romance Novels to me. I found them short but fun, interesting and very much appealing to my then (and ever-present) romantic self. I read book after book after book whenever one was available. However, my first encounter with this certain book at that time discouraged me from reading further. For an English class, one of our choice for books was Sense and Sensibility, which I was very excited to start on. Soon after I started though, it was obvious that I could not devote the time nor the concentration to actually find interest in the book and finish it. So I stopped after a few pages and decided to choose another book. After all, if it was Regency Era I was attracted to, my short and not so difficult romance novels were always there.

I thought I had given up on Jane Austen. That bad start made me think that I was probably not fit to read Austen books. To each their own, since each person has a certain genre or theme of books they like to read. Maybe, Austen books weren’t my thing. That was what I thought, till I watched Pride and Prejudice (2005 – Keira Knightley version). When I first watched it, I cannot remember. But it was like love at first sight.

Ever since then, I’ve been actively (not obsessed), pursuing my still-growing love for Jane Austen’s works.Β This is my collection so far…
