Book News Roundup – July 4, 2014

ElizabethAndDarcyCurtis Sittenfeld, author of some of my favourite high-brow chicklit, is updating Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice as part of the Austen Project. Here is how she’s dealing with the Bennett Sisters’ situation.

The BBC will adapt The Imperfectionists, one of my favourite books of the last five years, into a miniseries. Congrats to author Tom Rachman, who was raised in Vancouver!

A new literary destination. Oh the Places You’ll Go!

To (belatedly) celebrate Canada Day, here are 100 books that will make you proud to be Canadian.

The movie version of S.J. Watson’s chilling psychological thriller, Before I Go to Sleep, gets a release date. If you haven’t read it, the book would make a great beach read this Summer!

Happy weekend!
