Name: Ashli
Class: 8C

Book Title: Pride and Prejudice
Author: Jane Austen

What did you like about this book?
This book opened a whole new genre for me to explore – Classic Romance. These stories are set back in history and have a different approach to romance. I like the way Jane has no interest in romance but when she meets her soulmate romantic feelings begin to flourish. 4/5 Stars
