"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." This iconic first line from Pride and Prejudice sets up the narrator's subtle snark perfectly. While poking fun at the obsession with courtship and marriage and the world of gossip that writes its own truths, Austen also points out the desperation of many woman who must marry in order to secure their safety

To try and explain just how much this series and its fandom have meant to me in an Instagram post would be impossible, so I'll leave at thank you. Thank you to J.K. Rowling for creating a world where there is hope, where diversity is celebrated, where outcasts are welcomed home, and where an entire generation was able to fall in love with reading. "After all this time?" "Always."⚡️?

It's taking me a long time to read this novel, but I'm really enjoying it!! An academic vampire novel? How could I not?

so I'm still figuring litsy out. Any hashtags or features discussion tags you've found that are fun or particularly active??

sara.the.librarian I love this book! Seriously one of my favorite books of all time. It's hard to explain it to people though since the main character is never named! 😅 3y
thebookdiviner I also adore this book! Kostova is such an interesting writer. And I'm with @sara.the.librarian - legit have no idea how to explain it to other people 😂 3y

sara.the.librarian @thebookdiviner For real! Saying things like "And then the main character does ..." or "The main character meets so-and-so" will get you some off looks. When I met my best friend in college (she too has already read the Historian) and we were bonding over books, I mentioned how weird it is that we never find out her name and I watched this slow realization and horror spread over her face. I think she gave her name somewhere along the lines. Haha. 3y
thebookdiviner 😂😂 I do that when I can't pronounce someone's name in a book, just make up my own name for them. Totally! And even giving basic descriptions doesn't really work, because it's a vampire book, but not really; it's historical fiction, but also not really. It's just all over the place but in a really good way @sara.the.librarian 3y
sara.the.librarian @thebookdiviner Totally agree! It's so good that I can forgive it being impossible to explain! 3y
Atasteforbooks @thebookdiviner @sara.the.librarian that's part of why I like it!! It's hard to pin down and refuses to be easily or neatly categorized! (edited) 3y

If you're a fan of Jane Austen you should definitely check out Frances Burney! Evelina is one of my favorite novels! It's a courtship novel following a young woman entering London society and trying to figure it all out and avoid its many traps. So funny and clever!

Back to work, but day dreaming about being at Hogwarts as always...

If you could escape to one fictional place, where would it be and why?? I think mine would be Hogwarts or the Shire!
