Last week I finally completed something off my 103 in 2013 list. I have to admit that I am not amazing at completing things off lists like that… :) But I have completed two things on my list (#69. Host a cookie exchange) and now I have finally completed 98. Read Emma. This book is so cute and sweet and I love it, and I love her. The end...
Emma is my very favorite Jane Austin heroine. I don't really know why exactly, but just think that she is so sweet and lovely. Plus she gets Mr. Knightley. :)
I have watched many different versions of Emma, but my very favorite is the 2009 version, (it was my favorite even before I read the book,) and as I read I was so glad that they followed the book almost exactly. Having watched the movie, I had Romola Garai in mind, and how she looked for the movie. She is the way I will always picture Emma. And I especially love the dresses in that version. They are so sweet and beautiful, and all throughout the book I was imagining Emma in those dresses. And Mr. Knightley. Need I say more? I love him so much. He is the perfect gentleman and I have loved his character in every version I watched because it's Mr. Knightley. :)
Anyway, have you read Emma (or watched any of the movies?) and what are your opinions on them both? :)
