Today I wanted to introduce a new section of the blog entirely on books. Okay I’ll admit, I haven’t read as many book as I would like, but this is something I am planning on changing in the new year.
Reading is a simple and easy way to relax and escape reality and immerse yourself in a different time or place. Whether you like fiction or non-fiction, a period piece or a futuristic novel, there will always be something out there for you.
In this section I will highlight some of my personal favorites and those that were recommended to me in order for you to get a suggestion on what to pick up next.
The first book I will highlight is my all time favorite that I have read more times that I can count: Pride and Prejudice
Written by Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice appeals perfectly to those who will not define themselves based on society.
As summarized by Goodreads, “In this historic romance, young Elizabeth Bennet strives for love, independence and honesty in the vapid high society of 19th century England.”
One of the reasons I love this book from beginning to end is because it has two of my favorite things: a female lead that does not care what society tells her to do and a story of love.
Although set in a different time , I think the overall message of pursuing one’s own heart is something that can speak to any person in today’s world.
I also just love 19th century England.
So go ahead pick up a copy and enjoy badass Elizabeth Bennet defy the norms set for her time.
