Book Recommendation : Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

I know, I know. It’s a classic. Everyone must have read it in school. But here me out, I promise it’s worth your time to reread it, and recommend it to your daughters or younger sisters. Any girl, really.

This book is a classic for a reason. I first read it in my teens, it hit me hard in my early twenties and still makes me come back to it again and again every year.

It compels you to be a strong, independent woman. You learn to respect yourself more and work hard to live an honest life.

The happy ending is the cherry on top. It means Hope.

This book is a happier version of Villette, which -in my opinion- is Charlotte’s Masterpiece. But Villette requires a higher level of emotional maturity to fully understand the protagonist’s character, so I think twenties is the best time for a girl to read it.

This quote here expresses the idea of having enough courage to pursue your dreams; to leave your comfort zone… and just go. This is a major part in anyone’s life, so I wanted to share.

Check out how beautiful and positive this sounds:

“I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had courage to go forth into it’s expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst it’s perils.”
