Currently Reading: Pride and Prejudice

Source: Tumblr 
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife."
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Everyone knows the opening sentence to Pride and Prejudice. I have read it a million times myself, but I never finished the actual book itself. Can you believe it? How can I consider myself a book lover when I have never read Pride and Prejudice. And I had never seen the movie until this weekend either (I know).
This year it is finally time to read Pride and Prejudice however. Whenever I tried to read it before, I always had a problem with the language in which Pride and Prejudice was written. It took me a lot of effort to read so much as a page and I put it away most of the time in favor of reading another, easier read. However, after seeing the 2005 movie over the weekend and absolutely loving it, I decided to give it a try. I find that having a general idea of what the plot is about, makes the book a lot easier to read and I'm definitely enjoying myself now. I'm about half way and it's awesome so far.

Some things I'm especially loving at the moment:

  • Mr. Darcy (Duh)
  • The quintessential British Culture
  • All the pretty dresses
  • The romance (swooooon)
  • The story
  • The small romantic moments
  • and so much more ...
