First published in 1813, "Pride and Prejudice," Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners - one of the most popular novels of all time - tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr Darcy, have moved into their neighbourhood. "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." So begins the novel, that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues.

Re-readables is a newish feature that I started in 2020, then promptly forgot about. I am hoping to bring it back this year to share my thoughts on the books that I am currently re-reading. (I LOVE re-reading books!)

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is hands down my most favorite book ever. I originally read the book back in 2009 and immediately fell in love with the story. I wasn’t much of a re-reader at the time, (what was I thinking?!), but I have since re-read this book quite a few times over the years, and I also started a tradition to make this my first read of the year, every year. (It definitely takes the pressure off of trying to pick the perfect first read of the year, and it helps to start the year with a book I know I am going to love.)

Pride and Prejudice is definitely my most favorite read by Jane Austen. I absolutely adore Elizabeth Bennet and her crazy huge family, and she is definitely one of my most favorite characters ever. I also love Mr. Darcy, because he’s one of those characters you really don’t like at first, but then he grows, and grows, and GROWS on you throughout the book. He’s seriously the best, and ‘watching’ the relationship grown between him and Elizabeth is the best. There is a reason why this book is one of my most favorites ever. If you haven’t read it, you definitely should.

One of my reading goals for 2021 is to read more classics, and I am so excited to re-read the rest of Jane’s books in the upcoming months. I am also hoping to read some of the other popular classics like Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, but I am the most excited to just read all of Jane’s books again.

Overall; I really enjoyed reading this book again! I think it’s my 5th or 6th time reading it, and I already can’t wait to read it again. It really is fantastic, so check if you haven’t already!
