My Austenesque Favorites!

A question pops up in my inbox and on Twitter and in comment sections across my corner of the internet from time to time, and that question is: So, I hear you like JAFF; what are some of your favorites?

JAFF, for those of you who don't know, stands for Jane Austen Fan Fiction, aka sequels and continuations and reimaginings and reworkings of Jane Austen's work. The category is HUGE, and spreads into books and media that you might not even realize is influenced by Austen (her works are public domain, after all, and timeless in a way that allows people to make use of them in just about anything). Because it's such a huge category, and because I host a JAFF lovefest every year, new ones are constantly coming to my attention -- meaning that this list of "favorites" is likely to change, and change again, and keep growing and expanding for the foreseeable future -- though these are my favorites, for now. (Or, at least some that I've really liked, with a little something for everybody.)

If you want to see my whole Jane Austen collection (only slightly out of date...ish), check out this video.  Or head over to Austen in August to enter to win a JAFF book of your choice!

(no offense to any other Janeite author whose book I've read, these are just the ones that jump out at me when I think of some faves! And there are still a LOT of JAFF books out there and on my own shelves that I have yet to read, so... hope to be expanding this list in the future!)
Austensibly Ordinary
Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy
Persuade Me
There Must Be Murder
For Darkness Shows the Stars
Mistaking Her Character
Epic Fail
A Weekend with Mr Darcy
Murder at Mansfield Park
The Duff

  1. I find it amazing that you narrowed it down so well. I know how deep your Austen shelf is so that must have been agony. LOL!

    I've only read five of those, but I'm in luck because five more are on my shelf waiting for me. I'd already added Interference to the wish list after reading your first impression, but the Duff...I'll have to see about that one, too. I've read a couple that I put on my Austenesque shelf b/c though they never claimed it- they are tributes to an Austen story.

  2. I think I read the wrong version of Sanditon because I don't think I liked it. I need to get the one you mentioned in this video. Actually if I would have liked it I would remember it and own it.

  3. Great post! Don't think I caught it last year. I've read 11 of your 14 and would totally agree with you about Sanditon and Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy being on my list too!! Yes, all the reasons you said! I have Interference on my TBR and look forward to checking it out! Must look for The Duff too. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thank you for sharing your favelorites list. I have read 2 so have more to read.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
