This Year I Am Reading…
Can you believe that this is my first time reading Jane Eyre?! I am actually listening to the audiobook narrated by Thandie Newton and it is no surprise that she is incredible. This is truly the perfect fall read and has the potential to become one of my new favourite classics. Maybe even on the level of Pride and Prejudice! I am surprised by just how readable and accessible it is. I am very much intrigued by the story.
Last Year I Was Reading…
This is coincidental because I just finished a Christmas book yesterday, In a Holidaze. I guess it is becoming a tradition to read a Christmas book in October? So strange! Anyway, I really loved a lot about Royal Holiday. It is one of my favourite books in The Wedding Date series. It made me crave scones that is for sure!
Obviously Jane Eyre and Royal Holiday have next to nothing in common. The only think that stands out about them to me is that I would consider them seasonal reads- Jane Eyre for Fall and Royal Holiday for the holiday season.
What were you reading this time last year?

I love the wedding date series too 😊
It is really fun!
Yes I can’t wait for more books!
I loved Jane Eyre! I read it in university and couldn’t get over it! The ending kind of made me mad but overall I really enjoyed it
It is strange that the ending has never been spoiled for me. I am so curious!
Nothing in common? Aren’t they both technically romance novels? (I added a link to this post on my link party for #ThrowbackThursday, by the way.)
I guess so! I’m not on the romance part yet and I have heard mixed things b
Hope you enjoy the rest of Jane Eyre! It’s definitely a great fall read.
Mmmmm. I never thought of that. Now that you said it. I think it is a great book for the fall. Probably winter too.
Exactly! Something about classics scream winter to me.
