On My Wishlist

Do you have any books that you desperately want but haven't bought yet? The books can be old, new or forthcoming.

I just finished re-reading Sense and Sensibility. This naturally makes me think of all those Jane Austen books I don't have or have never read.

Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon (Penguin Classics)
From Amazon:
These three short works show Austen experimenting with a variety of different literary styles, from melodrama to satire, and exploring a range of social classes and settings. The early epistolary novel "Lady Susan" depicts an unscrupulous coquette, toying with the affections of several men. In contrast, "The Watsons" is a delightful fragment, whose spirited heroine - Emma - finds her marriage opportunities limited by poverty and pride. Meanwhile "Sanditon", set in a seaside resort, offers a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and spectators, treated by Austen with both amusement and scepticism.


  1. I read Sanditon recently and really enjoyed it, and have been hunting down a finished version. Hope you get to read more Jane Austen soon :)

  2. I've only read a couple Jane Austen books and I really enjoyed them.
