One of my favorite books ever and also one of the most influential books in my life. I think I was 13 or 14 when I first read it and I’ve read it 3 times more since. Jane Austen is truly one of my favorite writers ever and that’s not just the English major in me speaking. I think Jane Austen is one of the reasons why I became an English major. She was definitely one of my gateways into the classics.
