Goodreads reading challenge: 75/60

Austentatious Book Club 

August – Pride & Prejudice

September – Persuasion

October – Northanger Abbey

November – Emma

December – Mansfield Park

January – Sense & Sensibility

Unfortunately, my busy school- and workschedule don’t alow me to read along with the book club. Reading a work of Jane Austen takes me quite a lot of time, especially for someone who is not a native English speaker the writing style can be complicated. I did really enjoy Pride & Prejudice, so I’m planning to read her other works as well. Just not in the upcoming months.
