I shared this on my personal blog but I also wanted to share it here. ;)  -Vanessa

As some of you may know I am a big Austen fan and I recently found this little gem on YouTube.
I need to play catchup, but I've already heard it's a great series.

I recently was contacted by Sterling publishing to review the book Jane Austen's World by Maggie Lane. So, I thought it would be great to do a giveaway on my blog. :)

In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen expert Maggie Lane has penned her most inclusive work yet. This beautifully illustrated book gives readers a detailed look into the life and times of the beloved author, including her family, love life, musical talents, style of dress, and more!

Fans of Austen will love Lane’s five-part volume as it takes them from Austen’s daily life to her seemingly immortal influence over literature, television, and film. Also included are examples of Jane’s “visual world:” popular art, interior design, fashion, and even fads such as spas and seaside retreats. The final chapter details the history behind all six of Austen’s published novels as well as their modern movie adaptations. Additionally, Lane discusses the attempted completions and sequels to Austen’s work after her death.

Spring is here, and that means BBC will soon begin filming their recreation of the Netherfield Ball! I'm so excited! I wish I could go. <3
