Wishlist Wednesday #9



Wish-list Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Dani at Pen to Paper Blog where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wish-list for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wish-list and onto our wonderful shelves.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Paperback, 507 pages
Published February 4th 2003 by Penguin
Orphaned into the household of her Aunt Reed at Gateshead, subject to the cruel regime at Lowood charity school, Jane Eyre nonetheless emerges unbroken in spirit and integrity.

She takes up the post of governess at Thornfield, falls in love with Mr. Rochester, and discovers the impediment to their lawful marriage in a story that transcends melodrama to portray a woman's passionate search for a wider and richer life than Victorian society traditionally allowed.

With a heroine full of yearning, the dangerous secrets she encounters, and the choices she finally makes, Charlotte Bronte's innovative and enduring romantic novel continues to engage and provoke readers ...

Ok I have a confession... I have never read Jane Eyre or pretty much any of those type of classic books.. I know I’m bad. I have them on my kindle app but I would love to have some really nice copies that way I have a nice collection on my bookshelf. Unfortunately I am so picky that I have yet to find one with covers that I really like.

I really have no other excuse to why I haven’t read it. I really just want to read it because it’s a classic and everyone seems to love it. So, I’m just going to stop here so I don’t embarrass myself anymore. ;-)

  1. I haven't heard of this one :) Sounds interesting though. I don't really take to well to reading classics or anything. It reminds me of those dreaded literature classes in high school!
    Thanks for stopping by my WW :)

  2. I read Jane Eyre ages ago and remembered almost nothing about it, then decided to pick it up again last year and loved it! I have a friend who rereads it every year or so... from what I hear, there's a "cult" of Jane Eyre lovers out there! Give it a try -- you may be pleasantly surprised!

  3. Wow. I can't believe you never read it! I have two copies of the book, and watched the movie. At some point in life I was so into this book! You SHOULD read it!

  4. I suggest you watch the BBC version with Ruth Wilson and then read the book. Classics can be so dense sometimes, and it helps me to have the voices already in my head before I begin.

    1. That sounds like a great idea! I didn't even know there was a movie.. Show's how much I follow classics! Having seen the movie I'm sure will help get through it easier.
