Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert: I am going to review each section of this book separately. It must also be noted that I listened to this book on audiobook. I will only do that when it is a non-fiction and read by the author. In this case, I think it might have had something to do with what I thought about the book. Part 1 (Italy): I really enjoyed this part. I would give it a 5 star rating. It was interesting, engaging, and complete (for lack of a better word).

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Elizabeth: She is the perfect blend of flaws and positive attributes. Austen really created a character that you could follow like she was a really close friend.

I love Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. It is great to be introduced to the characters and how their friendships were formed. I have to say one of my favorite moments is learning how the 3 kids became friends because there are some things you just share that you cannot help but become friends and Downing Mountain Trolls are one of them. This is one of my favorite series to read and love my annual re-reading of them. If you are one of the few that have not read the books–you really should whether your young or young at heart!
