Dear Readers,

I now consider this blog to be my Juvenelia. Have fun perusing the archives, and find me at my new haunt, here.

All About the Brontes Challenge 2010-My Goals!

Hat tip to JaneFan! Laura's Reviews is hosting a read-a-thon challenge called the All About The Brontes Challenge, which invites participants to read or watch 3 Bronte-penned or Bronte-related works in the upcoming year.

I've already read the complete Bronte novels including most of Charlotte's juvenilia (but not quite all), and a bunch of major Bronte-inspired works, so my goals are a bit eclectic, but awesome nonetheless:

1. The Infernal World of Branwell Bronte by Daphne Du Maurier.
2.The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1996 - Masterpiece Theatre starring Tara Fitzgerald and Toby Stephens) I'd also like to re-read the book, which I read in high school at the recommendation of an English teacher, and don't remember that well, though I do recall absolutely loving it.
3.The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Elizabeth Gaskell. A must-read I've shamefully put off. But my honey got this for me for Hannukah! What a guy.

Anyone else want to do this challenge? Check it out here!


  1. I'm organizing a Jane Eyre book club type thing on facebook later this month! :) Clearly Brontes are in the air.

  2. Happy New Year !!!

  3. It is ON!!! I haven't done a Bronte spree in a long long time.

  4. Oh, Toby Stephens is adorable in The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. The book is on my list this year. Enjoy the film!

  5. Thank-you for joining my challenge! You've got a great list and I look forward to reading your reviews!
