Jane Austen ♥

Who wrote in an era when romance used to mean something.

This lovely Jane Austen blog is running by three people. We also have personal blogs, theraspberryskies (Bade), hihievet (Tugce), and letspackyourbag (Gülce)


We read almost every book of hers and, we adore her characters, her writing style. Despite her quite life, she managed to write marvellous novels about love, although she never married someone as we learned.

We do not own these photos. We find them on the internet and put here. We generally don't credit them (it feels weird actually cause we take care and pay a special attention to credits in our personal blogs) because it's hard to credit each picture here. Sometimes we find them from google pictures or are just hanging around the web and run across a photo. If you have the credit of a photo or if you really own the credit of a picture, inform us, and we'll add the credit! :)



Silly things do cease to be silly if they are done by sensible people in an impudent way.

[Mrs. Weston]  "She is loveliness itself.  Mr. Knightley, is not she?"

"I have not a fault to find with her person," he replied.  “I think her all you describe.  I love to look at her; and I will add this praise, that I do not think her personally vain.  Considering how handsome she is, she appears to be little occupied with it; her vanity lies another way.”

Emma, volume 1, chapter 5

I have no idea that she has yet ever seen a man she cared for. It would not be a bad thing for her to be very much in love with a proper object. I should like to see Emma in love, and in some doubt of a return; it would do her good.

Mr. Knightley

I suppose there may be a hundred different ways of being in love.
