I've read both Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.Curenly reading the last one in English.These are some of the most amazing books in history and what warms my heart even more when I'm reading the is that they were written by women :P

I looove Jane Eyre. I've started Wuthering Heights several times, but have never got round to reading the whole of it. It's currently on my extensice reading list, along with all the rest of the Bronte novels!

I've read Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre, I have yet to read the other books from the Bronte sisters. I don't know who the authors are but I want to read the new ones about zombies or whatever supernatural forces are in it. I guess I like Jane Eyre better because I like the love story between Jane and Mr. Rochester which is not destructive like Cathy and Heathcliff's love.

How come I haven't seen this thread before :o...the Brontë sisters changed my life. I too read WH and JE, and I both loved them. WH was the reason I wanted to do my final paper for grammar school about the Brontë books (in the end, it was only about JE). I love JE even more than WH I think...WH is brillianty written, but it's also very sad and dark...I sometimes really had to put it away because it made me feel miserable...and JE, the story's amazing, the characters...and so romantic! :) <3

Jane Erye freaked me out lol.

If I asked you to keep your soul -
would you understand why that's much harder?”

I enjoyed Jane Eyre but one book by the same author that I feel is underrated - "Villette" by Charlotte Bronte, I read that earlier this year, it was excellent, if you enjoyed Jane Eyre or any other Bronte sisters works, I recommend this book, it's a semi-autobiographical account of the time when Charlotte moved to Belgium to teach at a school in Brussels. The book basically sheds light on her time there.

I tried wuthering heights but as I don't fluently speak English, that as too hard and stopped. But promised myself to read it once in French ! 


Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
