#wonderingthroughwutheringheights #chapter24 #pemberlitten Oh Cathy, you stupid stupid girl. Ellen finds out she is visiting WH in the evenings. She tells Ellen of the miserable grouchy Linton and how mean he is to her. How she continues to make fun of Hareton because he is learning to read. Yet Linton‘s horrible attitude and abuse are not his fault and she must continue to see him. Ellen runs right to E and the visits are to stop! Oh Cathy!

Wuthering Heights | Emily Brontë

Nope. I‘m following along on the chapter summaries because they are better than the book @Crinoline_Laphroaig ! Just can‘t make it through. Couldn‘t get through Jane Eyre either. I have a horrible time with classics. 🤔 I‘m even listening to it! 🤷‍♀️ sorry! #pemberlittens #buddyread #wutheringalong

Tiffiney I found this one to be a tough read too. 12h
Texreader I‘m the same. I get so bored. 8h
CoverToCoverGirl This one wasn‘t my favourite either, but I did manage to get through it, with difficulty. 7h
Crinoline_Laphroaig Honestly if I wasn't hosting I would have skimmed and read the last Chapter. It's definitely going in the Category of Classic I have now read and never have to read again. 6h

Today's chapter made me sigh out loud in exasperation about 75 times; these people are all a giant mess and need to never have any human contact ever again, except for maybe Hareton who seemed like he was about to apologize before Cathy *whipped him*. Anyway, head to the comments for a link to some excellent writing on Wuthering Heights to make you laugh, kicking off with a section from today's chapter. RIP The Toast, you were the best of us.

To the surprise of none of us #PemberLittens - Cathy has been sneaking out.??‍♀️

If like me you feel things are getting repetitive and wondering when this slow train wreck will finally end⁉️ After today we have 9 Chapters left. My copy Page 270/352.

Happy to see the 1st line of tomorrow is: “These things happened last winter, sir,” said Mrs. Dean; “hardly more than a year ago."
The End is in sight. ‼?

"Sadly, young Arthur [Conan Doyle] has left us to take up general practice on England's south coast. To be honest, I think my former clerk's passion is more for scribbling than prescribing — his parting gift was a promise to make me the detective hero of one of his stories, no less." - - - Dr Joseph Bell

Retelling of one of my favourite books/stories + medical royalty = I might even ignore inconsistencies ???

This was one of the #BlindDateWithABook books we exchanged at the #ReadingRetreat. And the blurb made me put it on #MountTBR.

Doing immersion reading with book and #audiobook.

DivineDiana Like the term “immersion reading”. This is my favorite way of experiencing a book! 17h

Finished Wuthering Heights last night, when I couldn't sleep. I quite enjoyed this reread, but sort of the same way I sometimes enjoy terrible reality television: for the chance to think "You are all* awful people. And real stupid. When the bad things that are most definitely going to happen finally occur, you will deserve them." I don't get how anyone reads this as a great love story, but it was a fun ride

*except poor Hareton

KathyWheeler I never understood the people who view it as a great love story either; it always felt more akin to gothic or horror to me. 1d
Tamra This is one of my favorites and I need to reread! 😆 1d

quietjenn @Tamra I have read it since high school or maybe early college. There was a *lot* that I didn't remember! 1d
Tamra @quietjenn that happens to me all the time. 1d
Liatrek I agree! Just not a love story. 1d
batsy @KathyWheeler Yes, definitely! 22h

Home on my own, feeling nippy ok there, what better way to spend the evening ☺🤗😍.
I've read Purcell 's other two and enjoyed them with their spooky ideas.
Plus a new tea, cocoa nibs, cinnamon and liquorice. Mmm. 🍵

#wanderingthroughwutheringheights #chapter23 #pemberlittens Ugg Linton!!! Cathy goes to visit Linton. He is very sick. He and Cathy have fight about their parents and the past. Cathy pushes his chair and he has a coughing fit. This leads to a full-on tantrum. Ending with Cathy staying she will visit him daily. Even though he is just terrible. Ellen wants to prevent it but get sick from cold wet feet for 3 weeks! I wonder what happens 🤷‍♀️

Bookwormjillk Whatever could Cathy be doing in the evenings? 2d
