Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027
Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen, Anna Quindlen While I quite like Pride & Prejudice, I still don’t see why most people salivate over the book. (My guess is Colin Firth. Thanks, BBC.) I noticed more of the satire and Austen’s commentary of social expectations rather than great, epic romance(!!!). Mr. Bennet, though, is my favorite character just for his awesome snarkiness, and I do love the little subplots strung throughout the book. It’s a must-read, but it only ranks in the middle of my personal Jane Austen list.
