There's Something About Jane

Woman drinking from Mr Darcy coffee mugJane Austen seems to get more and more popular each year. Whether it’s a new film based on one of her novels or a new adaptation that adds zombie violence to a comedy of manners, the six novels she wrote are constantly being adapted and reinvented. I’m constantly on the lookout for authors with a similar style or who can write a good sequel to one of her existing novels. While there’s no one quite like Jane, some of these authors come pretty close so check them out!

Original works similar to Jane’s novels:

Indiscretion An Accomplished Woman  North and South  A Room With A View The Corinthian I Capture the Castle

Sequels, Reimaginings, and Retellings:

Bridget Jones's Diary Mr Darcy, Vampyre Mr Darcy Takes A Wife Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict Austenland
