Jane Eyre is my favorite book! Great choice in reading. Did you enjoy it? I've not heard of any of your other reads, though. Enjoy your week reading!

Have you watched any of the movie versions of Jane Eyre? I read The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte last week and loved it.

Nise' that book is actually why we read this one! However at the end we had a couple of people who didn't like JE, and a couple more who didn't finish it (and had given up) so we're not going to read Secret Diaries for Book Club after all, but I have it at home and it's on my long To Read list. I did watch the BBC movie a few years ago but I don't remember it well. Hannah, my review is a couple of posts back. I did like it but not as much as the first time I read it, 12 years ago.

Ooh, I *love* Jane Eyre! Great choice :)

Here's what I'm reading.

I was unable to get through Jane Eyre and I feel terrible about it. Everyone raves about this book. I think I need to try again. :)

Carin Siegfried said...

Sheila, I didn't get through it the first time either (I was about 14). The beginning is very slow, but if you can get through the part with her family and then at Lowood School, it picks up considerably once she gets to Mr. Rochester's house.

Lots of good reads! Jane Eyre is the best - that's a good one for the 'Flashback Challenge' - I could reread that one anytime!

Happy Reading!
