8 New Jane Austen-Inspired YA Books

by Dena McMurdie

As a devoted fan of Jane Austen, I’m constantly on the lookout for new books inspired by her work, especially those for young adult readers. Luckily for me, dozens of new spinoff novels, adaptations, and retellings are released every year. I know I’m not alone in my obsession, so I put together a list of the newest books and upcoming titles to share with fellow fans. Whether you’re looking for a coloring book, something funny, romantic, or mysterious, you’ll find it here.

Coming in 2017: Keep an eye out for Seeking Mansfield, which comes out Spring 2017. With all the charm and heart of the original story, Seeking Mansfield is a funny, romantic retelling set against a theater backdrop. Great characters and plenty of swoon-worthy moments make this a wonderful addition to any reading list.
