Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

I'm actually reading this book for the July #AYearAThon and it's definitely different for me because I don't read classics. 

Book Beginnings
"The family of Dashwood had been long settles in Sussex."

The Friday 56
"Then, lowering her voice a little, she said to Elinor, 'She is his natural daughter.'"

So, what do y'all think of my Friday read? Have y'all read this already? Tell me in the comments below!


  1. I have never read this one much to my embarrassment! I keep meaning to read more classics and it keeps not happening. I do like the excerpts. The 56 sounds like some gossiping is going on!

  2. I don't think you can go wrong with Jane Austen ;) I haven't read this one yet but I think I have it on my shelves...somewhere..

  3. I love this Austen classic!!

    Happy weekend!

  4. I reread Sense and Sensibility two years ago. I really enjoyed it. This year I vow to read Middlemarch. We shall see.

  5. I am listening to the audiobook! I love Jane Austen; you made my heart smile. Thanks for sharing :)
