How to Tell If You Are in a Jane Austen Novel (The Toast)

You probably can’t call yourself a book nerd if this article from The Toast doesn’t make you laugh. Here are a few signs you are living out a Jane Austen plot:

  • Someone disagreeable is trying to persuade you to take a trip to Bath.
  • Someone disagreeable is trying to persuade you to join a game of cards.
  • A picnic has gone horribly wrong.
  • Someone you know has fallen ill. Not melodramatically ill, just interestingly so.
  • A charming man attempts to flirt with you. This is terrible.
  • Your mother is dead or ridiculous.
  • You are in a garden, and you are astonished.
