Emma Book Giveaway!

In honor of the new Emma film currently in theaters, I’m giving away this beautiful Penguin Clothbound Classics edition of Emma by Jane Austen! [Giveaway now closed.]

Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think? I’m hoping to see it this weekend. I’m so curious to see this new version! I’ve read and heard a lot of interesting reviews about it. Some of the casting looks great (Miranda Hart as Miss Bates and Bill Nighy as Mr. Woodhouse). The fashion/costuming is supposed to be incredible.

I’ve heard this one is a bit of a romp, so of course I’m excited to see for myself! I’ll be sure to post a review as soon as I see it!

To get us all in an Emma kind of place, here are a few of my favorite quotes.

Emma Quotes:

“Vanity working on a weak head produces every sort of mischief.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

“If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

“It was a delightful visit;-perfect, in being much too short.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

“A woman is not to marry a man merely because she is asked, or because he is attached to her, and can write a tolerable letter.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

“I don’t approve of surprises. The pleasure is never enhanced and the inconvenience is considerable.”

― Jane Austen, Emma

  1. I am looking forward to seeing the movie and have a ticket!

    1. How fun!! Enjoy!

  2. Haven’t seen it yet. It just came to the movie theater where I live. I’m looking forward to seeing it soon.

    1. I hope you get to go!

  3. Hi, Rachel. I am planning to see the film. Think it sounds fun, though some aspects of it I won’t care for as I like staying true to the novel as much as possible. Thank you for the give-away. Emma may be my favorite J.A., though Anne my favorite heroine.

    1. We are kindred spirits for sure. I think Emma is my favorite JA as well. And Anne will always be my favorite heroine! I really hope this version stays close to the book, though I’m sure it will take a few liberties.

  4. So excited. Definitely getting ready to go see Emma. Already pre-ordered the DVD too!

    1. Me, too! I think a watch party with some local friends will be in order when it comes to DVD.

    3.5 stars. I won’t say more until you’ve seen it, other than that this is to the 2009 Emma what the 2005 Pride and Prejudice is to the 1995 Pride and Prejudice. It is reimagined and condensed. However, I loooove the music, and the costumes were so fun! A lot of quirky fabric and style anachronisms and they show the total flexibility of designer Alexandra Byrne, who went with such a reserved and soft color palette route with the 1995 Persuasion.

    Also, Robert Martin gets his own theme song, which is awesome! Listen for it whenever they’re at his property! 😍

    1. Love it!! xo

  6. I hope to see the new movie soon. I loved the last version with Gwyneth Paltrow. From the commercials, this one looks very funny!!

    1. Yes, it looks so humorous!

  7. I’ve already subscribed to your lovely blog and I do very much intend on seeing the new movie, but I may have to wait until it is out on dvd/blu ray as it does not look like my theater has it 🙁 boo!

    1. Thank you for entering and following along with my blog! I am hoping to do a movie night with friends when it comes out on video. I think it’s limited in theaters in some cities.

    I already subscribe and follow! Can’t wait to see Emma!

    1. Me, too! Thanks for entering and following!

  9. The Gwyneth Paltrow Emma is my very favorite movie but am looking forward to the new one.

  10. Loved the movie! I love Emma!

    1. Oh, yay! I LOVE love love Emma!

  11. I can’t wait to see it! Emma is my favorite novel of hers. 😃

    1. Me, too!!!

  12. Well, I Think my new movie buddy will agree… 4.5. The filming and costuming and color was absolutely stunning.

  13. I saw the movie and was delighted. And I had not expected to like it.

    1. Oh, good! I didn’t know what to expect either!

  14. I haven’t seen it yet, as our town’s movie theatre just closed last week. 🙁 I’m hoping to see it, but it may not be until it comes out DVD or on Netflix. I’m very picky about the adaptations of her novels. My favorite is the 5-hr P&P version by A&E with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. The closest Emma adaption, IMHO, is the one with Kate Beckinsale as Emma. But Jane Austen is my favorite author (I even blogged about how she has influenced my writing at https://www.liladiller.com/blog/comparing-jane-austen-to-lila-dillers-love-is-series).

    1. Thank you for sharing. Your writing looks intriguing! I am picky as well. This one might not be for the purist, but I still love seeing the different versions to see how they are done. The costuming alone looks quite beautiful!

  15. I am going to see Emma. I can’t wait! I love all the Jane Austen books.

    1. Oh, good! I do, too!

  16. I’m already a newsletter subscriber and IG follower! I haven’t seen the new adaptation yet, and am still on the fence about whether to see it in the theater or wait til it’s out on DVD/streaming.

    1. Hi, Patrice! Great to hear from you! I got to see it this weekend. Can’t wait to write about it this week. xo

  17. Will wait until it is available on DVD!

    1. You should have a watch party with some other Austen fans!

  18. Oh I am so ambivalent about seeing the movie. I love the book so much and am
    reluctant to see it in case it strays, and possibly even parodies the theme of the book. Will probably see it though, the trailer does look tempting. I hope for the best!

    1. I totally understand. I couldn’t help myself. I want to know about it for myself!

  19. The new Emma is a delight! The production quality is brilliant – a feast for the eyes. I’d love to see it again.

    1. Hi, Joy! I just got to see it this weekend. I agree!!

  20. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I eventually will. It looks and sounds like the best “Emma version” to date. Also, I’m already a newsletter subscriber of yours.
