It has taken two weeks but I FINALLY finished The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and this quote about sums up my feelings for it 🙃 Don’t get me wrong, it’s well written and generally interesting but it could have been about 100 pages shorter and the story would still be intact  (maybe even  better).

Anne Bronte either had a great gift for human observation and depicting emotions and situations not her own, OR she actually lived through some of the stuff she wrote about because this story is incredibly descriptive and a true representation of the good and bad in people. I recommend this book for people who don’t mind having the same person/situation described in twenty different ways, and/or who like strong, kicka** heroines who don’t let dumb men push them around 😏

“I cannot think well of a man who sports with any woman’s feelings; and there may often be a great deal more suffered than a stander-by can judge of.”

-Jane Austen, Mansfield Park

Fanny Price calling out the players😂 She’s truly such an underated Austen heroine! I’ve got about 80 pages left in Mansfield Park and I hope Austen gives Fanny all that she deserves for dealing with such bratty friends and family!
