Pride & Prejudice

About a week ago I saw the move Pride & Prejudice (2005) for the first time. 
And I just fell in love with it.

Watching the movie made me wish I'd live in the 19th century and that says a lot - I've always loved living in today's world with all the technology (and nail polishes), but this really made me want to go back in time.
I loved all the actors and the scenery was so beautiful!

The next day I searched out the Pride & Prejudice book that I knew we had.
It was even better.
As always, the book was much more detailed than the movie. I love reading books, especially good ones and this was definitely one of them. 
Even though I knew how it'll end, I couldn't put it down.
This is my copy of the book. It's in Estonian and it was published in 1985. 
Interesting fact - the book is 7 years older than me.

And of course after I finished the book, I had to watch the BBC Pride & Prejudice TV series starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

Guess what? It was also amazing!

It surprised me how much it followed the book. Almost every single conversation was there. I really love those kind of movies and TV series. Plus I'm a huge fan of Colin Firth.
I just don't have enough good things to say about this series. 
It's a must-watch.

I get obsessed/ excited really quickly when I see or read something good, so it was no surprised that the past week the only thing I read and watched was Pride & Prejudice.

I can't obsess enough how much I loved Mr. Darcy and how nice Elizabeth was. Or how much I disliked her mother and Mr.Collin's attitude. 
I could go on for days!

I haven't had this hyper-fangirl phase for a long time about anything. I seriously wanted to go back in time and live in the 19th century. 

Preferably in Pemberly.
With Mr. Darcy.

And as a birthday gift to myself, I went to the store and got this huge book.
The Complete Novels of Jane Austen: which include 
Sense and Sensibility
Pride and Prejudice
Mansfield Park
Northanger Abbey
Lady Susan
 This Christmas is going to be filled with amazing literature.

This post is so all over the place, but like I said before, I'm going through the fangirl-phase.
And for those who actually read all this praise about P&P - on Saturday, there will be a manicure post, inspired by one and only P&P.
Pin It Now!

My fave is the BBC version starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. They did an amazing job. I usually watched that in one sitting.
I'm a fan of Mr. Firth's too.

Love the book and the 2005 film version. You are right, it was shot sooo beautifully.

I can't stand the film (Keira Knightly irritates me) but the mini series and books are amazing; plus: omg Colin Firth... *swoon* I can't wait to see what your p&p inspired nails will look like :)
