“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners—one of the most popular novels of all time—that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues. Renowned literary critic and historian George Saintsbury in 1894 declared it the “most perfect, the most characteristic, the most eminently quintessential of its author’s works,” and Eudora Welty in the twentieth century described it as “irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be.”
My first Jane Austen book! I do wish I had actually gone the physical book route because I went with the audiobook and it all seemed to go so fast. To me this was the type of book that you had to turn the pages at your own pace. That being said, I really enjoyed this book anyways but for I fact I will still have to go back and physically go through the book because it felt a little fast and like things didn't stick. It made me so happy to finally meet Mr. Darcy and all these characters that are frankly iconic. Now, the characters just seemed to opposite of me in every way, very self absorbed in a way that just made me roll my eyes. In any other book this would've been a massive turn off but blissfully, I really though of how things where back in the day and how women didn't really have a choice in many matters during that time. Before I continue to read another Jane Austen novel, I will attempt to revisit this one in the near future.
If you like classic romance.

So I have previously shared why I posting this so be sure to check up on my post about Bellatrix. I couldn't post about Bellatrix and not post anything on Diana, so here it is.
This is the day that I adopted her. She face of pure evil. Look at how tiny and cute and fuzzy and just... Agh.. she was everything. Still is.
Very much like Bella she has her own weird habbits
She would growl at all her toys
Prefers to drink out of faucets
Imitates her sisters chattering... And kind fails at it.
often plays tug-of-war... Even with herself
Likes to watch TV
Gets in places she probably shouldn't
She of course also sleeps in any position
The sink is still one of her favorite places to sleep in, surely she wont feel the same during the winter.
The worst part of all is that even in the worst of places, she still manages to look good for the camera. I swear she poses.
Purrito actually doesn't mind baths... Actually, she doesn't mind many things at all, she is pretty damn fearless, she truly lives up to her name.
Even with a belly pouch, she still manages to look good. Yes, I am totally jealous.
So I literally have shared so many pictures of Bella throughout twitter or Instagram and today they(the animal shelter) called to check up on her. See how she was doing
I, of course, offered to send pictures, turns out I have so many pictures and videos that I have to share that I decided to share with everyone and make a blog post instead because otherwise, I would have to send 15 emails.
There are small stories for some pictures that I simply couldn't not send.
I of course also did one for Diana
This is my proof as to why you should adopt and not shop. The moment I went into the room with her, I knew she was the one. And she truly is.
This is the first day I adopted Bella, she would often sleep on my shoulder and would lick my face until it felt like sand paper. You can probably see how red my face it.
She isn't all that good at taking pictures
She is very flexible and can sleep in just about in position
She has gotten incredibly long and thin
(when she heard her first rainfall)
Sometimes she takes good pictures... I guesssssss
(She's about to drop a sick album, be sure to check out her soundcloud)
(her face about the game of thrones season 7 finale)
I wish I was kidding. But this is actually from the moment after the credits were done.... I swear
She is also known to chatter, it is pretty much how she wakes me up each morning when she spots birds. She is my alarm clock.
She wiggles her butt right before an attack
For the most part she gets along with her sister, Diana
She licks me every time she gets, which is multiple times a day, I simply let her and thank her afterwards xD It typically goes on for a few minutes. Its impossible to pet her without being licked
She is one of the greatest living things that has come into my life, I wouldn't change her for the world
