And in that moment, the reason for my bitterness had become clear to me. I wasn’t angry at Jamie or the red coat deserters. I was angry at myself, for forgetting my plan to make my way back to the stones.

Pride and Prejudice

By Jane Austen

Illustrated by Hugh Thomson



This is the 1895 illustrated edition of Austen’s most popular novel, Pride and Prejudice.  It was deemed the ‘Peacock edition’ because of its beautiful gold foil cover.  Hugh Thomson was a famous Irish pen and ink illustrator, and is best known for his works on Jane Austen’s and Charles Dickens’ novels.


This is a treasure from the Mount Holyoke College Archives and Special Collections.  To find out more visit this book in person in the treasure case located in the library reading room or visit us online.

Be the villain you were born to be. Stop waiting for someone to come along and corrupt you. Succumb to the darkness yourself.

This is surprisingly motivating.

Remember when we all loved Twilight? You could practically hear the strangled screams of preteens everywhere shouting “TEAM EDWARD” “TEAM JACOB”. But as we grow older we realize that books aren’t always as great as we originally thought.

This isn’t a hate read of Twilight but it’s also not a “I love this series” reading of it. We are going to reread the series and reevaluate what we once thought and discuss it with each other!

How do I sign up?

  • There isn’t an “official participants list or anything. All you have to do is liveblog, interact in discussions, post pictures, or anything else. Just be an active reader and blogger!
  • Note that you can join in if you’ve already read them or if it will be your first time!
  • Tag all your posts #TwilightReadAlong and I will be checking it daily. It will make it easier for us to see what others think of it and discuss with them.

The dates

  • Twilight Oct. 1-15
  • New Moon Oct. 15-31
  • Eclipse November 1-15
  • Breaking Dawn November 15-30

Will there be activities?

  • Yep! There will be an introduction type thing, discussions, maybe some polls, nothings certain yet.

I look forward to reading the series with you all! :)
