Coming to Life - Persuasion

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
 
Tonight I am hosting our final book club meeting on the book Persuasion.
It had been over 10 years since I had read a Jane Austen book,
and let me tell you, it took me reading almost half the book
to finally get into a grove when reading Jane's writing style.
But I fully enjoyed this small book.
I totally recommend it to you all.

There are so many great characters in the story that make you either
 chuckle in laughter or want to throw the book across the room in frustration.
And the main heroine, Anne, in my opinion,
is one of the most relatable characters in any Jane Austen book. 

And of course you can't not love this famous quote by Capt. Wentworth:

"You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope."

Our next book in the book club...
Wuthering Heights!

Love Persuasion! It's been quite a while since I have read Austen myself. I have been thinking about pulling some out this winter.

What fun reads for your book club! How does yours work?
