Jane Eyre | Charlotte Bront
post image

I mostly read fantasy & sci-fi so most genres (chick-lit, historical fiction, romance, etc.) fall outside my comfort zone. Last year I decided to try to read more books in any genre other than SFF (esp. books by women). I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed Jane Eyre, Alias Grace & Bridget Jones's Diary. I ended up buying more Atwood & Fielding & want to find more C. Brontë. #Riotgrams #BookOutsideYourComfortZone @bookriot

TK-421 Also, I think these books work for #TimbitTunes #ThatGirl? @Cinfhen @TheKidUpstairs 13mo
erinreads I read Jane Eyre for the first time last year and absolutely loved it! 13mo
TheKidUpstairs @TK-421 absolutely they do! 13mo

Cinfhen Excellent choice ❤️ 13mo
Emilymdxn I‘m trying to expand my reading too! It can be so rewarding right?? So glad you enjoyed these all 3 of those are some of my favourite books. 13mo
jenniferw88 Brontë's other novels are: Shirley, Villette & The Professor. Don't forget to try Emily & Anne Brontë too! 13mo
TK-421 @erinreads 🙌 12mo
TK-421 @Emilymdxn 🙌 Very rewarding! 12mo
TK-421 @jenniferw88 All of Charlotte's novels are on my tbr radar, I just need to buy or borrow them. I own a lovely used copy of Wuthering Heights & it's on my #LitsyAtoZ2019 list. I may try Agnes Grey or the Tenant of Wildfell Hall this year too. 12mo
jenniferw88 @TK-421 I thought that might be the case after I commented lol! Oh well, if other littens didn't know what the books were called, they do now! 😂😂😂 12mo

#timbittunes #thatgirl

Is it just me or is #thatgirl Little Nell written as the most saccharine sweet child that ever lived? Apologies to the fans but this is my least favourite Dickens. #misshavishamforever #alsobarkisandpeggoty

TK-421 It's not just you! Dear sweet little Nell 🙄 13mo
Cinfhen Have not read this one! I‘m bad when it comes to the “classics” 🙈🙈🙈🙈 13mo

Centique @Cinfhen *whispers* “you‘re not missing much on this one” 😉 13mo
Cinfhen 😘 13mo
MayJasper I am reading this. I am struggling a bit. I love his descriptions but am not too keen on the characters especially the main ones. I struggle to have any empathy with Grandfather in particular. 12mo
Centique @MayJasper good luck! I love his writing too, but yes, his main characters in this one just didn‘t connect with me either. Still it was a very influential book so I‘m glad I read it. 12mo

In this book Sarah Weinman tells the story of the kidnapping of Sally Horner and makes the case if it wasn‘t for #ThatGirl Nabokov would have never written Lolita .He always admitted Sally‘s case as an influence,but this author contends that the depth of the connection might run deeper.And I‘d know if I agreed if I ever got it off of TBR mountain and read it.

TheKidUpstairs Sounds fascinating. I think I'd rather read this than Lolita! 13mo
Cinfhen It‘s on my TBR too!! I bought it as a #KindleDailyDeal recently 13mo
Cinfhen I recommend this fictionalized account of Sally Horner‘s story @TheKidUpstairs @Leftcoastzen it was excellent 13mo

Leftcoastzen @Cinfhen I read Rust and Stardust, I liked it a lot. 12mo
jveezer The two-month review podcast talked a little bit about this in discussing the Nabokov section of Dubravka Ugresic‘s novel Fox. Very interesting. 12mo
Leftcoastzen @jveezer I will have to check that out! 12mo

Shirley | Charlotte Bront

So far I've met Carolina, Hortense, the Misses Sykes (Mary, Harriet & Hannah), and Rose & Jessy Yorke. But still no sign of #thatgirl Shirley. Who is this eponymous heroine?

A fitting library haul for #ThatGirl on #TimbitTunes. I didn't plan this, but it worked out well 😁

Blonde: A Novel | Joyce Carol Oates

I loved this book in high school. A fictional bio of Marilyn Monroe. I bet she was often referred to as #thatgirl #timbittunes

Cinfhen I wanted to read this until I saw the page count 🤪🤪pass!!! #pagecountphobia 13mo
Blaire @Cinfhen 😂😂😂I probably wouldn‘t take it on now...it makes me realize how much free time I had at 17 even though I felt soooo busy. 13mo
Christine11 I‘ve come across this book a few times and it seems really interesting but definitely a big time commitment! 😅 13mo

Cinfhen Crazy thing is, I‘m not really busy anymore...I could sit with this book but I literally get anxiety and some ADD behavior creeps in if a book is over 400 pages. It‘s only in the past 2 or 3 years that this #PageCountPhobia has begun 13mo
Blaire @Cinfhen it is a big commitment. Esp when 3 others books could‘ve read in the time. It is good tho if you ever need a real chunkster. 😍 12mo
Cinfhen I‘ll keep it on my #MaybeOneDay list xx thanks 😘😘 12mo
