Hello! If you are here it means that you love Jane Austen at least as much as I do. So welcome! Next January 28th it will be the bicentenary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice. To celebrate such a special date, the blog Austenprose has started this challenge that will last all the year long. During this celebratory year, I will read and watch different adaptations, spin-offs, and reimaginings of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's second published novel. Since I have loved Jane Austen all my life, having re-read all her novels innumerable times, I am going for the Aficionada level, and I will read/watch 12 adaptations. Here it is the list of books, movies, and series that I will review every month. Join the fun!

January: Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict, by Laurie Viera Rigler.
February: Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict, by Laurie Viera Rigler.
March: Pride and Prejudice (BBC series, 1995).
April: The Jane Austen Book Club, by Karen Joy Fowler.
May: Miss Austen Regrets (Jeremy Lovering, 2008).
June: Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues, by Linda Berdoll.
July: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Seth Grahame-Smith.
August: Bridget Jones' Diary (Sharon Maguire, 2001).
September: Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One, by Sharon Lathan.
October: Lost in Austen (ITV series, 2008).
November: Becoming Jane Austen (Julian Jarrold, 2007).
December: The Man Who Loved Jane Austen, by Sally Smith O'Rourke.

Aaah... Whenever I read "Jane Austen" somewhere I feel my stomach flickering and this year I'll have a good excuse to read P&P and all her novels again (not that I really need one)...
This challenge sounds interesting and funny!!! It'll be a pleasure to follow your reviews...
I read Bridget Jones Diary some time ago and Two shall become one by Sharon Lathan, but I don't know the other novels you mention.
Let this 2013 be a great Jane Austen year!!! :D
