#pemberlittens #thewatsonsreadalong #chapter3 Oh so many new great characters. The ball starts and Miss Edwards actually show some personality warning Emma against Mr. Musgrave and Mr. Tomlinson (a complete over by talkative bore).Emma dances with some soldiers when the Osborne‘s arrive with Mr. Howard, Mrs. Blake and her son Charles. Literally the whole ball stops for their arrival. It is clear the Osborne‘s‘ you know what does not stink.👇👇

MicrobeMom Miss Osborne promised her 1st 2 dancesto 10yo Charles but then rudely stands him up. Emma to the rescue. He is adorable and having the best time dancing with Emma who he thinks is very pretty indeed. This draws a lot of attention. After tea, Emma promises her first two dance to Mr. Howard but both Mr. Musgrave and Lord Osborne is interested. She enjoys her dances with Mr. Howard but the Osborne‘s who are not want to stay long 🙄, must leave👇 3mo
MicrobeMom But the entire Osborne clan must say goodbye to Emma. Miss Osborne is quite cold but everyone else is warm. The evening is over for Mr. Musgrave as he disappears after the Osborne‘s leave. 3mo

BarkingMadRun I‘m Team Howard right now, we will see how I feel going forward 🤣 3mo
julieclair Emma is causing quite the stir. Fresh meat, lol! Since Charles is unfortunately not old enough, I‘m rooting for Mr. Howard as her suitor. 3mo
TheBookHippie @julieclair FRESH MEAT 🤣🤣🤣🤣 3mo

Crinoline_Laphroaig This is me! "I had an idea that I might ask her in to coffee sometime but hesitated about it because I did not quite know how to convey the impression that it was not, of course, to become a regular thing." 3mo
TheBookHippie @Crinoline_Laphroaig can I put this on my front door ? 🤣🤣🤣🤣 3mo

Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheBookHippie a tasteful doormat. 3mo
mollyrotondo @Crinoline_Laphroaig this is definitely me 😆 I don‘t want to seem standoffish but I don‘t want to regularly meet with acquaintances lol 3mo
mollyrotondo So interesting that Helena confided in Mildred about her marriage and her interest in another man. Helena is so self absorbed it‘s annoying but I wonder if our feelings will change about her as the story unfolds. 3mo
TheBookHippie @Crinoline_Laphroaig oh yes a doormat! 3mo
TheBookHippie @mollyrotondo I wondered that as well. 3mo
DivineDiana @mollyrotondo I‘m wondering the same! 2mo

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront

#wanderingthroughwutheringheights #pemberlittens #chapter3
Mr. Lockwood is stuck because of the snow & is put up in a room no one is to enter. There he finds Catherine‘s name etched in the furniture and reads her journal. He then has horrifying nightmares of a a never ending sermon and Cathy trying to attack him. This wakes up Heathcliff who cries for Cathy‘s return. After Heathcliff berates the woman, Lockwood leaves. Never to return?

mollyrotondo What a great summary 😱 and Lockwood fighting off the ghost by rubbing her arm on the broken to make her bleed was probably the most disturbing part of the moment. 🩸 9mo
MicrobeMom @mollyrotondo omg yes. So disturbing!!! 9mo

I found this picture https://wuthering-heights.co.uk/locations/wh-tour-catherine of Mr Lockwoods sleeping spot. And while he had terrible dreams, I think it would make a perfect Book Nook. Just someplace other than Wuthering Heights. 😱

Librarybelle That‘s a great representation…thanks for posting this! 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Librarybelle @BarkingMadRun I was trying to wrap my head around the description. So I went to Google. 9mo
suvata I imagined it more “gothic” than that illustration. The picture you shared actually looks like an inviting spot. I just thought it would be more “dark and dreadful”. I guess I am really getting into the darkness of this book. 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @suvata I think it's dark and dreadful thanks to the company he is in. 9mo
suvata @Crinoline_Laphroaig You have a point there. 9mo
Bookwormjillk Thank you for this! 9mo
TheBookHippie Oh this is fabulous. I agree. 9mo

Having the hindsight of the whole Harry Potter story and world makes me appreciate everything so much more this time around.

I always wished there had been more books released about the Marauders era. Specifically I wish we learned more about Lily and Petunia. You can feel the fear they feel in this chapter at finding out they‘re not rid of *that* world.

Saknicole Definitely so sad to see later about Lilly and Petunia‘s relationship. How Petunia came to hate her sister and later Harry is so sad. I would definitely love to read more about their generation! 2y
Linsy Ditto!! Even just a short story would be so cool. They clearly loved each other at some point — the complete reversal is heartbreaking! @Saknicole 2y

#pemberlittens #chapteraday #chapter3

When Mr. Norris dies it causes an upheaval in the whole family. The Bertram boys‘ career paths are in flux, Fanny is told she will go live with Mrs. Norris and then finds out she won‘t and Mr. Bertram plans to go away with Tom for at least a year.

We‘re definitely about to see some great exposition in Fanny‘s development.

This was my reaction when Mr. Tilney suggested women were inferior letter writers.

This was also my reaction when Catherine thought “no young lady can be justified in falling in love before a gentleman‘s love is declared”

But Catherine got her dance, and a laugh, finally 😬

KVanRead Yes!👏😂 2y
batsy And very improper that a young lady should dream of a gentleman before the gentleman is first known to have dreamt of her! 😂 2y

I forgot how good this book is. Harry begins to feel the depth of the trauma he has endured, painfully unaware its about to get much, much worse. I love when these guys burst in to take him away from Privet Drive. #OrderofthePhoenix #Chapter3 #PotterADay

"Their clothes were mended as well as their bruises, their tempers and their hopes. Their bags were filled with food and provisions light to carry but strong to bring them over the mountain passes. Their plans were improved with the best advice. So the time came to midsummer eve, and they were to go on again with the early sun on midsummer morning."
