The AIA News-Herald: vol 1 iss 5

AIA News Herald rainbow

We've hit our final week of Austen in August 2018! I know, I can't believe it either. And I also can't believe that next year will be the 10th Anniversary of All Things Austen every summer right here on The Book Rat! *mind blown*
So I know we're all sad to see it go, but let's start the week with your special Austenish paper, hot off the presses!

this week

This might be a busy week... so much Austen, so little time!
  • A giveaway of hand-painted & lettered watercolor bookmarks, to coordinate with the printables from earlier this month!
  • And speaking of, more printables!
  • The final sneak peek at Maria Grace's A Proper Introduction to Dragons
  • And a peek at her recently released book, How Jane Austen Kept Her Cool — as well as a chance to win a copy!
  • I'll finally get around to sharing my thoughts on this year's group read-along, Longbourn (promise!)
  • And I'll take a look at some recently released and upcoming Austenesque books on my radar
  • We'll finally (hopefully) take a look at part of my Jane Austen collection
  • and maybe, just maybe, hear the story of how I became a tried-and-true Janeite
  • A Janeite Convo on re-setting Austen in unusual times and circumstances, that has me REALLY, REALLY WANTING some of these books to happen. Pronto.
  • and one final Janeite Convo, of sorts, to send you off with some Austen read-alikes to while away the time until next AIA!

    1. Already the end week. Hard to believe. I've loved every bit. So many wonderful posts and visitors and books. I've added so many to my list just from the newsletter alone. :)
      I love the newsleter. You've made this a wonderful event, Misty.

    2. Thank you for the recap. I have added a group of books from the list above.

    3. There's a few titles that I've not heard of such as Kellynch and Set in the Silver Sea. Thank you for highlighting these amazing books, Misty.

      In answer to your question, there are a few upcoming releases I am interested in. Among them are the recently published Obstacles by Belen Paccagnella, Lizzy Brandon's Recognizing Love, Emma and the City and next month's highly anticipated release of Rational Creatures.


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