The description made this sound so good. I just couldnt get into it, the main character seemed so judgemental. Premise was great, excecution was flawed.

Im really struggling with this one. Its not awful but its not great and im not getting into it like i do other books. Should I bail or stick it out? Ive read about 20 pages.

RamsFan1963 @audraelizabeth Give it another 10-15 pages, if you still feel the same, then bail the @#$% out. Life's too short, and your TBR piles too high, to waste time on a bad book. 2w
audraelizabeth @RamsFan1963 Thanks, your 100% right, im only planning on reading over 100 books this year. 2w

Normal people have a 'note copy' and a 'pretty copy' right? I think I'm a lost cause. 😂

In all seriousness, this book is my escape. Sometimes I like to get lost in it, other times I like to strip it back and theorise and analyse it... But that's just me. #litstudent #wutheringheights #classic #myescape

I've been holding off reading this as it felt like the perfect Halloween read and that is was.

I‘m not sure how a retelling of Wuthering Heights with witches and wizards managed to be boring but there you go. I finished, but it was a struggle

I lingered round them, under that benign sky; watched the moths fluttering among the heath, and hare-bells; listened to the soft wind breathing through the grass; and wondered how any one could ever imagine unquiet slumbers, for the sleepers in that quiet earth.

An excellent retelling of Wuthering Heights. I think I liked it more than the original.

Got these beautiful flowers & this gorgeous book from my sweet daughter last year for Mother's Day & I love it. 🌸🌹
I don't usually reread books I've read (unlike my kid) but Jane Eyre is one of the exceptions. Harry Potter & #Dracula too.

A beautifully written novel from the point of view of the servant, I won't call this a re-telling as it is so much more than that. Nelly is a fully realised character who has relationships Mr Earnshaw, Hindley and Hareton. The story is heartbreaking at times, but relived by her friend, Bodkin. Although it is a spin off, I think that it would stand alone as a fantastic novel about life below stairs.
