Jane Austen lives on

Jane Austen is fantastic, but you probably already know that. She is such a popular author that her books have generated hundreds of spin-offs. Whether its adding sea monsters to Sense and Sensibility, or writing about the married life of the Darcys and Bingleys, everyone seems to have a take on Austen's beloved books. Above all, I enjoy it when these spin-offs are clever.

This is my new favorite modern day adaptation. Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg. All our favorite characters from Pride and Prejudice make an appearance. Not necessarily how you might expect, but in really clever ways. Catherine de Bourgh as a mean girl anyone? Not all the scenes are delivered in the same way as the original, so the story still feels fresh. Which is your favorite Austen book or spin off?
