Welcome to A to Z! This year, I'm highlighting women's fiction books (and probably instilling a decent amount of cover love in the process).
J is for Jane Austen.
I know lots of people who think that Jane Austen is just romance, but really, she is addressing all sorts of women's issues of the time through her romantic stories. One of the most beloved, Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice, is strong willed, determined to love for love, stands against the discrimination she experiences because of her lesser class...all of it. Yes, there is a heavy element of romantic relationships, but I think they contain so much more.
What is your favorite Jane Austen novel? Favorite movie rendition? Favorite character?
