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 will lead him by the hand, Mr. Markham, till he has strength to go alone; and I will clear as many stones from his path as I can, and teach him to avoid the rest – or walk firmly over them, as you say; – for when I have done my utmost, in the way of clearance, there will still be plenty left to exercise all the agility, steadiness, and circumspection he will ever have. 

-Anne Bronte, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

​Happy Mother’s Day! This is a wonderful quote from my current read, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Moms show us the way until we’re ready to take the world on for ourselves 😊

Finally finished Jane Eyre and now on to The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Charlotte’s sister, Anne Bronte! I loveeeddd Jane Eyre and I hope I like the other Bronte books just as well! I had only ever seen the Jane Eyre movie and I can now say that the book is one million times better than the movie. So many details are left out of the movie and you definitely don’t get all the feels between Jane and Mr. Rochester ❤
