Sense and Sensibility | Jane Austen

Chapters 16 and 17 bring the return of our old friend Edward Ferrars! The Dashwoods are delighted to see him, but sadly Edward goes all Sad Keanu on them, unable to shake off, or even mask, his low spirits. Elinor is "vexed and half-angry" about his behavior- and honestly, I get it! I always WANT to love Edward- he is kind and honorable, and I sympathize with his feelings of social awkwardness; but the dude is also kind of a drag.

Ruthiella If Marianne is allowed to spend “whole hours at her pianoforte alternately singing and crying” for days (which 16 year old me totally understands), then Edward should be allowed to be a little sad. Besides, we know why he‘s depressed and he has a pretty good reason for it! Lucy Steele! 😱 7h
Andrea313 @Ruthiella You're very right! Lucy is HORRIBLE, and it's absolutely reasonable to infer that Edward is managing some level of depression. I guess I just sympathize so deeply with Elinor and wish he would have been even slightly effusive about seeing her. I know he tries not to lead her on, but if that's the case, why leave the Steeles to even come visit? 6h
Ruthiella @Andrea313 Yes, it is hard on Elinor and doubly so when her own sister assumes her feelings aren‘t deep because she is able to hold her composure. ☹️ 5h
Blueberry I enjoy reading your chapter reviews 💜 5h

Wuthering Heights | Emily Bront

Poor Catherine is so, so sick and weak- can't read a book, can't hold a letter, is "doomed to decay"- but hey, there's Heathcliff and suddenly she has not only the strength to stand and embrace him, but enough to seize his hair and *keep him down on his knees*. They shout at one another about love and death and regret and both wind up weeping until Edgar comes home. I don't know how Nelly stands it, srsly. #WanderingThroughWutheringHeights

Bookwormjillk Nelly loves the drama. 8h
TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk Yup! 😝🤦🏻‍♀️ 7h

#wanderingthroughwutheringheights #pemberlittens #chapter15 E and the servants go to church. Nelly gives H‘s letter to C and he visits with her. H and C are extremely self-centered. They blame each other for C poor health. They hate, love, hate, love until E returns. C faints and H leaves only after Nelly says she will tell him of C‘s condition the next day. C and H are just awful humans. I really don‘t get how the stand each other.

Chapter 17 gives us another peek into Edward‘s personality…. #pemberlittens #buddyread

Ruthiella Indeed! Dare I say he has a sense of humor behind his reserved exterior? 🤔😀 16h
BarkingMadRun @Ruthiella it looked that way for a minute! Good for him! 15h
Ruthiella @BarkingMadRun Upon my honor! I mixed up the chapters! It‘s in the next one that Edward shows a bit of self deprecating humor. He is quite glum in this one. 5h

Absolutely stunning! A work of ever shifting themes and focus, wherein, I can say, there are many many villains, yet only one hero who will defy expectations. Part romance, part humor, part mystery and thriller and horror and philosophical musing—THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is divine and a wonderful start to my book reading this year!

I'm going to have to agree with Nelly. If you love someone you don't wish them to be unhappy when you die.

This is why I've instructed the Nibilings that when I'm gone I don't want a funeral. I want them to toast my life with my good whisky.🥃

Bookwormjillk These chapters get weirder and weirder. I‘ll say it again as someone who has never read this book it is not at all what I expected. 21h
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Bookwormjillk keeps you wondering how much more dysfunction can happen. 21h

mollyrotondo But Catherine is so miserable! She blames Heathcliff and Edgar for “killing” her but really she caused her own misery. I don‘t feel sorry for her in the slightest. I agree with Nelly but not as it pertains to Catherine. 18h

Not gonna lie, my favorite part of reading this book right now is x-ing off characters as they die 😂 Only halfway through the book...hoping for at least a 95% mortality rate! #WanderingThroughWutheringHeights

TheAromaofBooks @megnews @Lcsmcat @Crinoline_Laphroaig @Clare-Dragonfly @JackOBotts - Finished chapter 17 today and couldn't stop humming “Another One Bites the Dust“ whilst updating my character sheet 😂 17h
Bookzombie I wish they had done this in high school, lol! First, just seeing how the people are connected (I had to watch the movie to clear some of that up if I remember correctly), but then also getting to mark them off as they died might have made me like this one more. 😂😂 16h
