I'm late posting because this happened. MY OVEN IS IN!!!! It's been on a dolly plugged in with industrial extension cord for 2 Years. No more unplugging so we can use cooktop. I can actually set the clock!

Anywhoozle thats #neverendingremodel back to the book. Thoughts Chapter 4?

#Chapter4 #pemberlittens

mollyrotondo Rockingham is home! Do you think he suspects that something is going on between Helena and Everard? 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @mollyrotondo if doesn't he's totally clueless. Your wife isn't home when you come home from the army because she's out with her 'colleague'⁉️ Definitely suspicious. 3mo
mollyrotondo @Crinoline_Laphroaig totally suspicious. And then they say they have a lot of work 🤨 and she comes back to their home with a man and invites the lady they barely know to join them in his welcome home and does not insist on alone time after so long apart? If he doesn‘t he‘s choosing to ignore it 🧐 3mo

julieclair This whole chapter made me feel very uncomfortable. All kinds of weird tension. Why are Helen and Everard always arguing? And neither Helen nor Rockingham seem to want to spend time alone together. 3mo
julieclair @Crinoline_Laphroaig Congrats on the oven! Isn‘t it amazing how long remodeling projects can take? 🤪😵‍💫 3mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @julieclair definitely not a happy couple. 3mo
rwmg All right, I surrender. I'm going to have to re-read this. But can I keep to just one chapter a day? 3mo
Sparklemn My favorite line of the chapter - “I decided that I was an interfering busybody and went upstairs to get my supper.“ Words to live by. 😉 3mo
DivineDiana Congratulations! 👏🏻 The relationships between Helen and her men are strange. There must be more to it! 2mo

#pemberlittens #thewatsonsreadalong #chapter4 the chapters very much match today, so I will only do one post. Started with the Osborne‘s leaving the ball and Emma return home to her father and sister.

Emma really enjoyed her time at the ball. The Edwards‘ are not happy with Miss Edwards and her dance partners of choice (all soldiers). The next morning many visitors that find Mary not that beautiful. Her carriage does not arrive but Mr.👇

MicrobeMom Musgrave arrives with news that Elizabeth cannot pick her up but he is happy to take her home. Emma doesn‘t want to go with Tom. She resists, he fights back, and Mrs. Edwards offers her carriage. Emma goes home with Miss Edwards much to Mr. Musgrave frustration. Emma tell Elizabeth all about the ball and how she was not impressed with Miss Osborne or Mr. Musgrave. Her dad returns from visitation having met Mr. Howard. 3mo
julieclair I was proud of Emma for her determination in resisting Tom Musgrave‘s offer. Also pleased that Mrs. Edwards picked up on what was going on, and offered her carriage. 3mo

Wurthering Heights | Emily Bront
post image

#wanderingthroughwurtheringheights #pemberlittens #chapter4 I am glad chapter 5 was short. Not really feeling gothic tonight. Hindley is sent to college because he is just awful and life at the Grange house would be good if not for Joseph (all fire and brimestone) and Cathy (not acting like the perfect lady she should be). Cathy is a true feminist living by her own rules. No one can handle a girl thinking for herself and being 👇👇

MicrobeMom Mischievous. One night Cathy is ill and sits with Mr Earnshaw and Heathcliff has his head in Cathy‘s lap. Mr. Earnshaw dies after quickly deteriorating health. Joseph notice and when Cathy notices all hell breaks loss. 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig Really appreciating your Chapter Recaps. Helps me keep it straight in my mind 9mo
MicrobeMom @Crinoline_Laphroaig thanks! It helps me digest what I just read! 9mo

Please Mrs Dean sit down and tell us all the gossip!

This helped some with figuring out Characters although I'm still going to need a Family Tree. 🤔

#Chapter4 #PemberLittens

megnews I thought it helped too. My book has a family tree. I‘ve bookmarked it and refer to it frequently. 9mo

TheAromaofBooks I did post a family tree that I found online and printed off. It's marked as spoilers because it shows who marries who. But it's helping me a lot with this story! 😂 9mo
CrowCAH Is it gossip if it‘s the facts?! 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @CrowCAH "I never gossip. I observe. And then relay my observations to everyone." Biffy 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @TheAromaofBooks Thank you! I'll take the Spoilers for something I can refer to. 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @megnews I grabbed a screenshot of one. Definitely need to refer to. 9mo
mollyrotondo My Penguin classics edition has a family tree that I look at about every 30 seconds 😂 it‘s not a big family but so difficult to keep everyone straight. But I love it 😂 I also love Heathcliff‘s intro into the family. Nelly says how much the kids and mother hated him and were cruel to him. Nelly didn‘t like him either at first but then warmed to him. But she makes a point that it wasn‘t that the Earnshaws were cruel and Heathcliff was kind… 9mo
mollyrotondo …Heathcliff wasn‘t the kindest, warmest person either. Everyone in the book seems to be brooding in one way or another. The Earnshaws were definitely despicable toward boy Heathcliff but he was no mild weak child either. Very realistic character writing. 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @mollyrotondo it's definitely broody! You make so very interesting points that I haven't thought about. 9mo
Bookwormjillk It did help a little but I might be more confused now 🤣 9mo
suvata I think I have the family tree figured out but I wonder, if Heathcliff is so rich, why does he live in a house that seems to be considered “shabby” and in need of repair. 9mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig @suvata I'm curious about that as well. Hopefully it will be explained as story moves along. 9mo
suvata @Crinoline_Laphroaig i‘m sure it will be explained later in the story. 9mo

Mansfield Park | Jane Austen

#pemberlittens #chapteraday #chapter4

Edmund continues to be a champion for Fanny demanding she needs a horse. He has taken to the role as the head of the family in Mr. Bertram‘s absence.

The older Bertram daughter is on the brink of marriage and the second half of this chapter focuses on the theme of marriage as we meet the Crawfords.

Northanger Abbey | Jane Austen

#pemberlittens #chapteraday #chapter4

To Catherine‘s great disappointment, she doesn‘t see Mr. Tilney at the Pump-room and is quickly regressed to “I wish I knew someone here 🙄”

Catherine quickly warms up to Miss Thorpe and finally makes a friend. While we are still getting to know Catherine, what we CAN say is that she is hungry for connection and companionship and becomes very infatuated with people very quickly.

suvata Great quote 2y
KendallHershey Aw I really love this. This has been on my TBR for a while. 2y

I have a very hard time liking Marianne. Probably because I'm practical like Elinor. 💕💙
