“I always deserve the best treatment, because I never put up with any other.”- Emma Woodhouse, Emma
It's that time of year . . . I get to announce our 2019 March book club pick!
Emma is a dreamy classic I can't wait to get my hands on! I knew from the very first lines ("Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition, seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her."), this had to be the next book club read.
March is such a funny month! You're dangling awkwardly between winter and spring- there's no snow but you can't seem to find warm sunshine either. But I'll be content to wait out the weather with a steamy cup of tea and this charming book in my hands.
What's it about?
"Emma Woodhouse is one of Austen's most captivating and vivid characters. Beautiful, spoilt, vain and irrepressibly witty, Emma organizes the lives of the inhabitants of her sleepy little village and plays matchmaker with devastating effect." (Review from Goodreads)
