Tell me a book you haven’t read that you feel like you

Tell me a book you haven’t read that you feel like you ought to read for whatever reason. If you’ve been following me for awhile, then you know I’ve never read anything by Jane Austen and that I finally got the audio for “Pride and Prejudice” last week. (Also, thank you to all the people who held a DM intervention for me and told me to please get the Rosamund Pike audio over the one I had. 🤣🤣🤣. There were a lot of feelings and you can’t just brush off that many people with strong feelings about it! Ha) . Shortly after, this gorgeous Jane Austen tarot deck arrived at my door, gifted by @penguinrandomhouse . It just kind of felt like fate was telling me I was on the right life path. 😂😂. I collect tarot decks and whether I end up loving Jane Austen’s books or not, I’m obsessed with this one just for the sheer beauty of it. But my fingers are crossed that I’ll come to meet and love all the characters in these cards and love this deck on a more emotional level. . This week I decided I’d like to learn a little more about Jane Austen, since she’s been on my mind so much. Here are a few fun facts that you may already know about her, but are new to me: . 🌸 🖋She initially published her novels anonymously. At the time it wasn’t respectable for a woman to be anything other than a wife or mother. The author was listed as “a lady” . 🌸 🍻She brewed her own beer! I imagine it was a common skill, but it’s still kind of funny to think of her brewing her own specialty beer at home. (Her specialty was spruce beer with molasses) . 🌸 😒She dedicated “Emma” to The Prince Regent, who she did not like due to the way he treated his wife. But he really liked Austen’s work and made a subtle order that her next novel should be dedicated to him. . I have enjoyed reading about Jane Austen and her spirit and am so far enjoying Pride and Prejudice! . #janeausten #prideandprejudice #mansfieldpark #senseandsensibility #Emma #northangerabbey #persuasion #jacquioakley
