#Bookaday Day 1: A book to curl up with by a fire.

Villette - A.S. Byatt, Charlotte Brontë, Ignes Sodre

I'm going to give this book-a-day thing a shot because I love seeing other people's posts. For Day 1, I'm choosing Charlotte Bronte's Villette as the ideal book to curl up with in front of the fire.


I adore each Bronte novel, but this one is my favorite because I felt a memorable connection to the character Lucy Snowe. I understood her and felt that she would understand me. My heart broke for her over and over again.
