I lack sleep
First impressions are by far the most important when it comes to meeting new people but when it comes to other things such as reading books, such impressions are hardly to be trusted.
This term’s HHR book is Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. How hard it was for me to understand and comprehend it at first but as the chapters go by, I seem to be more acquainted with the deep words and the manner Jane had written the text and the bad impression it had given me at the start turned the other way around to be its opposite.
I am still halfway through the book but so far, reading it, I got a glimpse of how it was to live during the era of its publication. A time where women abide to the strict rules of society. A time where your place in society really did matter and a lot more waiting for me to discover.
I got my copy free from my brother who used to read it when he was still a junior.
