Book reviews, opinions, musings and ramblings. General bookish excitement!

Sensational Quote Sunday

Some books change your life. They change the way you see the world. They do this not only with the story as a whole, but sometimes with an idea, a beautiful phrase, or even a word, that resonates with you the way nothing has before.

Sensational Quote Sunday is my way of paying homage to those books that remind me every day why I love reading.

I’ve been reading Jane Austen again! After visiting Bath on my recent travels, I couldn’t resist reacquainting myself with Anne Elliot and Captain Frederick Wentworth. There’s nothing quite like re-reading something as timeless, witty and romantic as Persuasion, so today I give you my favourite quote from this literary gem:

Persuasion

In Austen terms, Pride and Prejudice will always be my favourite, but Persuasion is a close second. Is there an Austen novel you admire above all others?
