Are you guys over Jane Austen?
I mean, I'll never be over my dear Jane, but if you are sick of Austen in August, specifically, lemme know. And IF YOU ARE NOT: well, this post is for you...

austen in august, jane austen

Most of you know the drill by now, but for those who don't or need a refresher:
What the Eff is AIA?
The Deets:
  1. Started in the summer of 2010 in a different month and with a different name (but still alliterative, because I'm me), Austen in August is a celebration of all things Jane Austen, featuring reviews, discussions, vlogs, giveaways, interviews and more! WE'RE COMING UP ON A DECADE-STRONG, YOU GUYS! [See years one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and eight, my god -- we've been doing this for so long!] You can stop by any time during these 2 weeks and get lost in Austen. It's all very austentatious. . . alright, I'll stop now.
  2. In the past, I've tried to cram lots and lots of posts into a short time frame, but this year, I'm going to try to be a bit more leisurely and see how that works out for all of us — which means, AIA will run for the entire month of August, with (theoretically) daily posts! You can just read and comment on the daily posts, if you'd like, but  as always, I will also be welcoming guest posts. Wanna review or giveaway your favorite adaptation? Share your Top 5 MOJ (Moments of Jane)? I'd love to host your awesome post! Fill out the form below email me with what you'd like to do and I'll reserve a spot for you!
  3. Are you an Austenite author who wants to be involved? EMAIL ME! I'd love to have you involved!
  4. Once again I will be hosting an Austen Read Along to coincide with the event. We've worked our way through the core of Austen's works, so I thought we'd start in on adaptations and continuations.
    There's a poll going up tomorrow on which book will be read this year -- please weigh in!

That about covers it.
So if you're interested in being a featured guest right here on this blog (or on my vlog!),fill out the form below! It'll remain open for the next few weeks, after which you can email me directly if you're still interested.
I LOVE seeing what everyone comes up with every year, and getting to hear from new voices, so  if you've been on the fence and too shy in the past, I'd love to feature you this year! I LOVE pulling in new Janeites, you have NO IDEA.
(I also love catching up with old Janeites, so remember: all are welcome!)


  1. Woohoo! This event is such a treat! I'll have to think of what I want to do to participate then do the form. And, I'll share it about! :)

  2. Good. Thank you. I´ll look forward to August and AIA.

  3. I saw Sophia Rose's FB post and signed up. Thank you!

  4. I'm finally on the ball this year! I'm planning on reading whichever book is picked! Yay!

  5. I'm a fan of it being all month! :D

  6. Hurray, AIA is almost here. I am looking forward to reading the Austen book for this year.I'll be back to see which one it is.

  7. Wahooo! Looking forward to it!!!!!

  8. I will join in, if only to read Mansfield Park!


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