Ruthiella Very short but not too bad for a dream sequence. I‘m a little nervous about Jasper the dog. I don‘t remember him. 😬 2mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig Such a great opening line. 2mo
BarkingMadRead @Ruthiella I don‘t remember! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 @Crinoline_Laphroaig I love it! @TheBookHippie oh nooooo 2mo
willaful @Ruthiella I don't remember either but according to this spoiler website. it's okay. (Click at your own risk!) https://www.doesthedogdie.com/media/20561?index1=-1&index2=-1 2mo
TheBookHippie @BarkingMadRead library has it just need to get it to my branch so I should be able to catch up. Supposed to be in by Friday 😅 2mo
IndoorDame Apparently Manderley is based on a house she saw and fell in love with called Menabilly (you can find stunning photos online) and according to what I‘ve read the dream in this chapter could just as easily foreshadow her actual journey with the house, all of which happened after she wrote and published the book. 2mo
Clare-Dragonfly This is gorgeously written! I haven‘t read this before so it‘s all new to me, and I‘m glad to be finally reading it. 2mo
Ruthiella @Clare-Dragonfly Awesome you are reading it for the first time! It‘s a great plot. 2mo
Ruthiella @willaful Thank you! 😊 2mo
Bookwormjillk Woohoo new book! I only have the audio version in my library so I‘m reading it that way. 2mo
dabbe @IndoorDame I read too that she was given a lease by the owner at the time, spent money renovating it, and lived there for 20 years before giving it back to the family. I never knew this, and the last time I read it was in the early 1990s before the Internet. Thank goodness for instant knowledge! 🤩 2mo
dabbe The passage where the narrator talks about the wind coming from the western sea reminded me of Cornwall and the island off of it that is prevalent in AND THEN THERE WERE NONE ... and also P.B. Shelley's “Ode to the West Wind.“ Oh, what a tremendous novel embracing Gothic and Romantic literature from the early 1800s. I'm in heaven! #byebyebadbros 🤩 2mo
5feet.of.fury Add me please 😊 2mo
TheAromaofBooks LOVE how atmospheric this chapter is!! 2mo
IndoorDame @dabbe couldn‘t agree more on both counts! #hailtheinternet #byebyebadbros 2mo
KAO I am excited to start something new! Optimistic here! 2mo
dabbe @IndoorDame 💚🩷💚 2mo
peanutnine This is my first time reading and I'm loving the descriptions so far! 2mo
Roary47 @Clare-Dragonfly I completely agree it is so beautiful already! I‘m also a first time reader with you and @peanutnine it will be fun reading with all of you. 🥰💛 2mo
julieclair Please add me! I was too intimidated to attempt the bros, but now I'm back in the brigade! 2mo
julieclair @IndoorDame Thanks for this great info about Menabilly! My husband and I will be touring Cornwall next month. I wonder if it's visible from the road? 2mo
IndoorDame @julieclair oooh, definitely let us know if it is!!! 2mo
julieclair @IndoorDame Will do! 2mo

Bookwormjillk Short chapters for the win 2mo
Ruthiella I think he did a good job of demolishing the prosecution‘s arguments. 👍 2mo
dabbe De-do-do-do de-de-blah-blah-blah is all I want to say to many long-winded chapters (thanks for the assist, The Police). 😃 2mo

Bookwormjillk We needed a short chapter today. 3mo
BarkingMadRead @Bookwormjillk we earned it! 3mo
currentlyreadinginCO She loves having almost been murdered!! 😂😂 3mo
dabbe Is it horrible of me that when I go to read a chapter, I quickly figure out how many pages it is, and then I (almost) jump for joy when it less than 10? 🤩 3mo
Cuilin I‘m so behind, still playing catch up. 3mo
mcctrish @dabbe we are twins 🤣 I start every reading by looking ahead at how many pages a-thinking “yes” #lessthan10 or “groan” #toomany I am seriously ‘a-doubting and a-feared‘ this book will ever end 3mo
BarkingMadRead @dabbe @mcctrish for real! 🙄 @Cuilin there are some shorter chapters ahead! You can do it!! 3mo
dabbe @mcctrish #greatminds 🤩😂😍 3mo
5feet.of.fury I told myself I either have to catch up this weekend or throw in the towel, this is where I am now. 3mo
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury you can do it!! 3mo
5feet.of.fury @BarkingMadRead the comments seem like people are getting more into it, it‘s helping me rally. For a while we all seemed to be just suffering together lmao 3mo
BarkingMadRead @5feet.of.fury the last section has been so much easier to read! It‘s crazy 😜 3mo

AnnR The first chapter was unexpectedly lovely. I'm so glad there was no drama. 9mo
Bookwormjillk Short and lovely! Just what the doctor ordered after Vanity Fair! 9mo
julieclair Please add me to the tag list. Thanks! 9mo
Daisey I enjoyed listening to the first chapter on my way to work this morning. Also appreciated the tag as I couldn‘t remember if I officially signed up for this one or not. 9mo
julieclair The two halves of Chandrapore sound very different. Beautifully done descriptive writing. If all the chapters are this short, I should have no trouble keeping up! 😆 9mo
Cuilin I have the same copy!! 9mo
mcctrish @julieclair I agree on all counts. School starts on Tuesday and I‘m in a panic over how many chapter a days I‘ve thrown my name in for 🤦🏻‍♀️ how the heck did it become September so fast 😆 9mo
julieclair @mcctrish I'm in the same boat with chapter a days. But they are all so much fun! 9mo
Bklover @julieclair I agree! One half sounds awful! 9mo
eeclayton I think I'll sit this one out after all. I'm quite overwhelmed with work and haven't even finished Vanity Fair. I'll rejoin you in October, but until then can you remove me from the tag list, please? @BarkingMadRead 9mo
BarkingMadRead @eeclayton I got you! We will see you in October! 9mo
eeclayton @BarkingMadRead Thank you ☺️ 9mo

Ruthiella I‘m thinking back and do we have any real confirmation of his initial preference for Kitty except as per Kitty‘s interpretation? 🤔. Also, anybody catch the return of Isabella Thorpe? #Ohnoshedidnt 11mo
BarkingMadRead @Ruthiella I believe it‘s all been Kitty and Emma saying so, I don‘t remember him ever showing any interest 11mo
mcctrish #kittyisthenewlydia this chapter has reached a feverish pitch #whohascaughtmrpriceseye can Mr Moreland make an appearance? #theresgoingtobeaballatpemberley I‘m getting beauty and the beast vibes 🎶 tale as old as time 🎶 ( for the ball when Georgiana will realize Mr Price has eyes for her ) 🎶barely even friends and then somebody bends unexpectedly 🎶 11mo
TheAromaofBooks @mcctrish - Thank you for that perfection 😂 11mo
dabbe Elizabeth seems to be the “Emma“ in this book. And now I can't get the song “Matchmaker“ or “Beauty and the Beast“ out of my head! 🤣 11mo

Chapter 16: Rosalie wants one more conquest before her assumed engagement….. #westonisntfallingforit #rosalieisdetermined #whatcouldgowrong #shortchapter #pemberlittens

IndoorDame Scheming little witch knows exactly what she‘s doing! It made me so mad that she knew she could only take her sister along to see him or the plan would backfire! 13mo
Clare-Dragonfly Ugh, Rosalie, so gross! I doubt it‘s working, though. Weston knows who would be a good wife for him. 13mo

mcctrish @indoordame Adina SAME!!!!! Rosalie is the WORST! 13mo
Bookwormjillk I felt Agnes‘ awkwardness when she said no to the umbrella in my core. 13mo
TheBookHippie @Bookwormjillk 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 13mo
eeclayton @Bookwormjillk I find this part of Agnes so relatable. Thinking about the man all the time, then being completely useless when the opportunity presents itself -- been there, done that! 13mo
Clare-Dragonfly @Bookwormjillk YES, dame! 😂 Dear autocorrect, I wrote “same” but we‘ll go with it! 13mo
Bookwormjillk @Clare-Dragonfly ha! I love it. 13mo
Ruthiella Rosalie claims she would have sent the footman back for Agnes? I doubt it. 🙄 I think Mr. Weston was looking at Agnes the whole time…waiting to see if there was any way to catch her attention. 13mo
BarkingMadRead @Ruthiella yeah, I don‘t see that happening, either. More likely, Rosalie would have left her behind 🤣 13mo
TheAromaofBooks I'm so scared about how Rosalie is going to sabotage Agnes's life once she realizes which way the wind is blowing! 13mo
willaful @TheAromaofBooks It's going to be ugly... 13mo
dabbe I love how Weston gently persisted with the umbrella exchange. That was 🤩🤩🤩 for that time period, right? Not only do I want Agnes to succeed as our hero, I want the villain to PAY. And pay good. Don't let me down, Anne! 13mo

Bklover This “men know best” business is making me nauseous. 🤢 1y
peanutnine @Bklover same. I audibly groaned 🙄 1y
Aimeesue @Bklover same! UGH 1y
CoffeeNBooks @Bklover same! 🤨 1y
ravenlee But why is Celia so awful too? Do she and Rosy share a brain, so if Rosy is using all of the will and stubbornness then Celia has to be a doormat? I mean, I think James is being a jerk, but Celia encouraging it…ugh. Everyone sucks. 1y
Addison_Reads @ravenlee "everyone sucks" describes how I've felt through most of this book. ? 1y
