My day off of work this past Wednesday was spent reading the book I mentioned in my previous blog "Me and Mr. Darcy" by Alexandra Potter. Although there were a few instances where I could predict what was coming, I all in all enjoyed reading this book. The ending was actually something I didn't expect, but I'm not the most avid book reader so you may predict the ending from the beginning. The main character Emily Albright is very much relatable to myself. The language used is also modern as could be. Even though the date for this book is in 2006, I still found it relatable and was surprised that it incorporated fashion (a Fashion Marketing and Management Graduate can appreciate that).
In "Pride and Prejudice" I found it hard to think Mr. Darcy was this perfect man that all women want. As the main character explains her love for Mr. Darcy I soon began to see why he could be so perfect, but by the end was satisfied to see he had his flaws and I was glad to see that I hadn't missed something about him in the first place. (Hopefully this made since). The next book on the list is "Since and Sensibility" by Jane Austen again! I'm not sure when I will get to reading that and when I will finish, but for now I set aside the book reviews. Who knows what the next will be about?!
So it's been a while since my last blog (over a year in fact). Considering it's almost March, It's a little too late to say I'm starting the new year off by religiously blogging my butt off. So all I can say is "Hello welcome to my blog! You'll find many random things that may or may not interest you, but I can assure you that I am 100% passionate about what goes on here. Hopefully that helps and captures your interest. You'll at least get to know a little more about me!"

Today I spend my day with recent book purchases. I finally finished the classic "Pride and Prejudice" by the great Jane Austen. I do have to confess that when I started reading this book I had a big question mark on my face. I could barely understand what was going on with the wording of everything. Granted this book was written centuries ago, so totally understandable in that aspect. So I decided to watch the movie with Kiera Knightly as the dear Miss Elizabeth. Afterwords, everything made more since. Although it may have ruined the ending I still enjoyed reading it and felt very accomplished.
So what's next?
Me and Mr. Darcy by Alexandra Potter!
From what I have read this is a modern take of Mrs. Austen's love story, that mentions the main characters love of Jane Austen books. So I'm very interested and may mention my thoughts of this in a future blog. Who knows? Keep you posted!!!
