If you have been following me for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that I love Jane Austen. I have loved her since I was first introduced to her by Rory Gilmore more than a decade ago. Do you remember when Rory told Dean to read Emma, and he admitted he liked it? Pretty sure I set out the very next day to purchase my first Austen. (My Gilmore girls love runs deep. Just being honest.)
I have noticed on Instagram that many of you also love Miss Austen. And since I read a lot of novels (and since Austen only wrote 6 of them) I’ve compiled a short reading list of other great works – both new and old – that any Austen lover would adore. Most of them are set in England in the 1800s, but a few of them are set in Canada in the 1900s.
