The Austen-tatious Indian - My Guest Post!

When the lovely Priya who blogs at Uniquely Priya asked me to write a guest post, I was incredibly flattered and honoured and equally nervous about writing a good post. The topic was obvious to me the moment she asked me though. Of course I had to write about Austen. Thank you so much Priya for asking me to write this!


The Austen-tatious Indian 
"I must have been 11 when I chanced upon an abridged version of a novel that would go on to be one of my most favourite books. It had a horribly illustrated pink and orange cover which put me off the book for a long time.

In 2005, after having read some excellent reviews, I decided to watch Pride and Prejudice. It was love at second sight. Proof again of what Austen says in the book: first impressions might be terribly wrong. I adored the movie. Matthew Macfadyen was dreamy, brooding and passionate. And yes, I had never heard of a Mr. Colin Firth. I decided reading the book would be a good idea. And the rest is history. "

Read the rest here at Priya's blog and be sure to tell me how you like it! :)
