All About the Brontes Challenge Reviews


Happy New Year to Everyone! Tomorrow is the official start to the All About the Brontes Challenge. If you would like to sign up, please go here for Challenge details and sign-up.

Please post your reviews for your Bronte related items in Mr. Linky below. Please put your name or blog name followed by the item reviewed. For example if I was going to post a review of Jane Eyre, I would put, Laura's Reviews (Jane Eyre). If Mr. Linky goes down as it does often, post your review links in the comments section.

Thanks everyone - I can't wait to read the reviews and discuss!

  5. Sorry Laura! Ignore my e-mail. It seems Mr Linky is working again now. I've just inserted the link to my first review.

  6. Oh no... Sorry Laura, it seems that my first post had an error so I had to re-link to the page.

  7. I'm off to a great start with the Bronte's challenge! Loved my first book of the new year! (Jane Eyre's Daughter by Elizabeth Newark).

  8. I highly recommend "The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte!" I feel I have learned so much about her!

  9. I read my first novel! Agnes Grey was a great easy first read for the challenge!

  10. I read Agnes Grey and agree with Carrie that it was a great first read for this challenge. Sorry that I forgot to include the novel's name in my blog link - posted too quickly and couldn't edit.

  12. Finished Jane Eyre! Wow! I'm on a roll (till we start back homeschool next week and my church book club starts up again in Feb!)

  13. I've just posted the link to my review on Agnes Grey as the first was broken. I still forgot to include the book title! I'll get it right one of these times.

  14. I don't seem to be very good at reading directions today. My review, linked with only my name (Dana Huff) is on Syrie James's The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Brontë.

  15. Gah... I think I just linked to my site, not the review's specific link... here's that if anyone has trouble getting to my review, it may be buried after a few posts:

  16. I seem to be having trouble posting to Mr. Linky... Here's my review of Shirley in case it doesn't show up on the list

  17. I also don't see the Mr. Linky? Here is my post on Villette http://englishmajorjunkfood.blogspot.com/2010/02/villette.html

  18. I just completed my initial commitment to the challenge-3 reads, Wide Sargasso Sea, Jane Eyre and Agnes Grey-I liked what I read so much I am going on for six reads-Wuthering Heights, Villete, and the Tenant of Wildfell-I am really enjoying all the great posts

  19. I love this challenge. It would be unfair for me to join it since I have read from each sister. I confess that "Jane Eyre" is not my favorite of the major novels. I love it, the language captivates me. I reread both "Wuthering Heights" and "Jane Eyre" this fall, and wrote my senior paper in college on "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall". These are great books people. Enjoy them.

  20. Not sure Mr. Linky is working. Just in case, here is my post on Wuthering Heights 2009 http://wp.me/p9KTB-9b

  21. Here is my post for Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

  22. I just posted on The Professor but, being overly literal, put my real name in the link instead of the blog name, First Impressions. I guess there is no way to fix it, huh?

    ReplyDelete
  23. You can find my review for Wuthering Heights here: http://jaynesbooks.blogspot.com/2010/03/all-about-brontes-challenge-wuthering.html

    Its of the most recent version that appeared on PBS about a year ago.

  24. I've just put a review of The Professor By Charlotte on my blog http://juliescraftsandhobbies.blogspot.com/

  25. Finally! Here's my post on Jane Eyre. http://restlessviolet.com/2010/04/jane-eyre-a-cold-day-in-spring/

    It was a joy to write about it.

  26. I'm so loving this challenge, and watched two great classics adaptations of Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights

  29. I just finished mine! Thanks for organising this challenge, I really enjoyed it!

  30. Well, it wasn't much of a review, but I wrote one crazy rant about Shirley. Let's see if I can still squeeze in Agnes Grey and meet my goal.

  31. Five out of six! Villette read and reviewed.
    As always, many thanks, Laura!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I did it! Yeah! It was fun rereading all the books, though I don't think I'm up for many more challenges in the near future. Thanks!
