Team Bronte or Jane Austen? Me first: Bronte! Wuthering heights is my favTeam Bronte or Jane Austen?Me first: Bronte!Wuthering heights is my fav Phuong #questionnaire
Wuthering Heights was a masterpiece.
My two favourites but Bronte is #1
Team Austen 🙂
Austen, then Bronte
Austen, then Charlotte Bronte. I am not much of an Emily Bronte fan. Wuthering Heights, the second half in particular, pushes ‘dysfunctional family’ into the realm of extreme psycopathy; Heathcliff is more monster than brooding hero. I don’t know what was going on in that claustrophobic little parsonage in Haworth, but it did strange things to Emily’s head.
@Elizabeth lol call me weird but the pure madness and toxicity of wuthering heights is what i enjoy most??. This book just gives me such raw emotions that though not pretty, i will remember and cherish forever.
Also, the setting is so beautifully described. I’m gonna make a shameless confession that i usually skim read a lot of landscape description in classics because, you know, it’s so lengthy and kinda boring. But this book, in particular, I enjoy every bit of the description.
Charlotte and Anne Bronte, then Austen, then Emily Bronte…but Emily might grow on me.
@David mine is actually in reverse?: emily, anne, and charlotte
@David also i think Wuthering heights is kinda of a hit or miss though…
Brontes no question. Particularly Jane Eyre
@Maureen yess that’s one of my favorite as well! Although I don’t really like rochester that much…
Bronte! Jane Eyre is an absolute favorite
Currently reading “Emma”! Team Austen, then!
“I could no sooner pick a favorite star from the heavens.”-quote from Ever After
I LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!!! 🙂
@Jamie Omg, me too!!!
@Lara One of the only ones that I can watch, just, over and over! Ah! 🙂 My fave Cinderella adaptation by far. I love that you quote it!
@Jamie I agree. My favorite, as well! Now I’m going to have to watch it again lol.
Jamie Tolstoy I will most definitely check it out. Thanks!?
@Lara I am part of the Jane Austen fan club as well and it is very fun!
Bronte, Bronte, and more Bronte!
Team Austen! But love Jane Eyre and the tenant of Wildfell hall.
Just finished reading ‘Shirley’…confirms my love of Charlotte Bronte, who’s probably my favourite female author (not just my preference over Austen). I’d definitely recommend it and Villette to those whose only exposure to CB is Jane Eyre (which is a great novel, but it shouldn’t eclipse the others the way it does.)
@David I definitely want to check out Villette?
Austen- P&P was very monumental for me! Bronze is spectacular, but Austen holds a special place in my heart!
@Lynne I love this shirt!
@Lynne omg that’s so cute?
