Emma Escapism 📚

So I started reading Emma by Jane Austen. I wanted watch the 2020 adaptation with Anya-Taylor Joy, and it was a great excuse to give the book a read.

Well, I guess I’m technically LISTENING to the book. Turns out I had received the Emma audiobook on Audible, with Emma Thompson narrating!

Is this just a case of me trying desperately to escape the reality of my current world and submerging myself in alternative realities? Yes, why do you ask?

I am not the biggest reader of Victorian fiction but I am quite enjoying Emma so far.

Oh to be a young, rich and beautiful lady who meddles in her friends’ affairs in posh 1800s England.
