Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice is a novel of manners by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, Mr. Bennet living in Longbourn.

(NLA) Set in England in the early 19th century, Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr Darcy, have moved into their neighbourhood. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy has difficulty adapting to local society and repeatedly clashes with the second-eldest Bennet daughter, Elizabeth.

"It's literally one of my favorite books! It's the perfect amount of "enemies-to-lovers" and you can really grow with the characters. Of course, like everyone else said, the reading my be hard considering it's from the 1800's, but it is so worth it. If it's really that much of a challenge though, then maybe reading a more modern version would help, however I still TOTALLY recommend this book. #enemiestolovers #janeausten #prideandprejudice #enemiestoloversisthebestgenre"
