I love to read, especially classics from prolific authors like Jane Austen. So, when I saw on the Laurence King website a couple months back that they had a Jane Austen puzzle, I had to reach out and see about reviewing it and sharing it as part of my holiday gift guide.  

Buy now from Amazon for only $19.99

When I am not reading or homeschooling my girls, I love to sit down at the card table in our living room and try and put together a few puzzle pieces. And, over time, as the family makes their rounds back and forth to the puzzle table, we eventually put it together. What a great feeling of accompishment it is when you put the last few pieces together in a large puzzle.  This 1000-piece puzzle was not just challenging, but it was also stunning to look at. 

It includes  60 characters from Jane Austen's liteary works, as well as great houses and breathtaking scenery, that will leave your eyes to wande as you place each piece, and think back on the stories you have read from Jane Austen over the years.

More about this puzzle:

"Piece together the world of Jane Austen, from the rolling hills of Derbyshire, via Hampshire and Lyme Regis, to the golden stone of the Bath skyline. As you immerse yourself in the proposals and balls of nineteenth-century England, why not take a turn around the garden with Mr Knightly, surprise Mr Darcy at Pemberley or escape to the seaside with Anne Elliot? Austen and her real-life contemporaries can be found amongst unforgettable characters from all six of her novels. From whispered intrigues to harmonious weddings, Janeites will delight in the details as they build this 1000-piece puzzle."


Emma is one of my favorite Jane Austen books, and the movie with Gwenyth Paltrow is still top on my list of best movies to watch and not grow tired of them.  As I worked on this puzzle this past month with my girls, I found myself wanting to watch Emma, and was delighted in the movie, as it had been some time since I saw it last. Once the movie was done, I set out to piece together the Emma portion of the puzzle, and was happy seeing this whimsical world of Jane Austen puzzle slowly come together.

This was the first literary puzzle I have done, as I usually do holiday, animal or scenic puzzles...but, I have to say, after completing this one, I am eager to do more of the "The World of" puzzles available from Laurence King. I have my eye of the Charles Dickens and Frida Kahlo puzzles.  And, for Christmas I am buying my Dad The World of James Bond 1000 piece puzzle to work on.  

If you are a puzzle lover or know someone who is, then I highly recommend you head on over to the Laurence King website and browse their selection of puzzles including the "The World Of" ones.  You will not be disappointed!
