Meet the Janeites - Amelia (CNJ JASNA Regional Chair)


Name: Amelia

How did you become a Janeite?  In college after reading Emma for a history class. That summer I had a kind of boring job and started listening to audiobooks. I decided I enjoyed Emma, maybe I'll read more Jane Austen novels and picked Persuasion. That did it for me, I had to read them all and soon found myself in grad school and made a friend who also enjoyed Jane Austen.  We were both reading this blog and decided to try a meeting out before we joined JASNA.  The rest is CNJ JASNA history.

Favorite Jane Austen Novel?  Persuasion 

Favorite Character?  Captain Wentworth

Favorite Movie Adaptation?  From Prada to Nada. It's not the best movie or adaptation, but I find it highly enjoyable. 

Any Sequels or Adaptations you enjoy?  Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star by Heather Lynn Rigaud

Anything else you want to share?  I'm kind of picky when it comes to sequels or adaptations of the novels, but over the last few years I've found I'm pretty on target for any Mary Bennet story.
