- The Family Fortune by Laurie Horowitz
⭐ ⭐ 1/2
There are a few wonderful lines (see yesterday’s post), but overall I was very disappointed in this book. Horowitz did her best at putting the plot of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in a modern context, but she forgot to keep the characters’ charm. Also, there is a so much fat shaming in this book! There is an entire chapter dedicated to describing a character who 1) isn’t in Persuasion, 2) isn’t in the rest of this book (except for a brief telephone conversation), and 3) is fat (I know this because the author said it repeatedly).
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

Mansfield Park will never be my favorite Austen, and this dramatization is unevenly adapted, but with this amazing cast, it was a joy!

Emma wore her happiness lightly but carefully, like a lace shawl.
