It is currently snowing here in the Seattle area, and with today’s prompt, it is fitting. Nothing like a good book from your favorite author on a cold winter-snowy afternoon. I’ll just grab a cup of hot chocolate and get down to who is my favorite author.
Jane Austen is my favorite author.
Have you just ever wanted to read something light heart and slip away into a world where you do not have to think much. The stories are predictable, especially when it comes to my favorite book, yep you may have guessed it, Pride and Prejudice. When I am not feeling well or need a pick me up, I turn to Jane Austen.
Her writing is full of satire, happy endings, and lessons learned. All of her characters end up where they are meant to be, and when you look back at her life, it was a piece of herself wanting the same things her characters wanted. Her style of writing still stands strong in this modern era of literature.
I have visited the Jane Austen House Museum in the village of Chawton and to the townhouse in Bath, Jane Austen Centre, where she stayed with friends. You can say I am a Jane-ite in a way, and yes I do love a good Spencer coat (which should come back as a trend imo).
I’ll leave you with this from the lady herself:
If you are curious, this is my ranking of her books from love to least like.
- Pride and Prejudice
- Sense and Sensibility
- Northanger Abbey
- Mansfield Park
One response to “My Go To Author”
LOVE your thoughts and, yes, I LOVE Jane Austen, and YES, Pride and Prejudice shows up in my bookcases (1 copy in each bookcase for easy access to read often)! Your summary of her writings mirrors my reasons for loving her writings – her insights and her stories are like parables to me revealing human nature and resolving challenges that leave me uplifted even on a cloudy day.
