All About the Brontes Challenge

Yes, shut up, I know I said I was going easy on the challenges but I couldn't pass this one up. I love the Brontes so I must do All About the Brontes hosted by Laura's Reviews. Besides it doesn't really start until January. I have buckets of time.

Here is my list for All About the Brontes:
  • The Life of Charlotte Bronte by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte
  • Either Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys or Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier (said to be inspired by Wuthering Heights)
  • Watch my Jane Eyre DVD again
I'm reading The Life of Charlotte Bronte now so I already have a head start. Yay me! Will you join me?

  1. I know how irrestible it is.They keep coming up with wonderful challenges everyday:)

    I took up the short stories challenge today. :)

  2. Oh, I am so in for this one! I love the Brontes too, and just read Villette last summer for another read-along. You know about BronteBlog, right?

  3. I'm definitely joining up closer to January. I told myself I have to finish up a current challenge first :)

  4. This one does look very tempting. I read The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte and really loved it. It definitely made me want to read the Bronte's work.

  5. Shona- I took a challenges break for awhile. Now I'm back in.

    Amy- Yes, I'm on the Bronte Blog everyday. Can't get enough Bronte!

    Kathy- Thanks!

    Bookshelf- I have a few I must finish too.

    Nicole- I want that one but my library doesn't have it. Must find it.

  6. Thanks for joining the All About the Brontes Challenge and for the tip about Jamaica Inn. I'll be adding it on to the list on the blog in a few minutes.

    I look forward to reading your reviews - you have some great choices!

  7. It is very interesting for me to read that article. Thank you for it. I like such topics and anything that is connected to this matter. I would like to read more soon.

  8. I've been thinking about joining this challenge, too. But I'm already involved in so many challenges....

  9. I'm in! I am in love with all things Bronte. When I wrote and researched my novel "The Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte," about Charlotte's life and love story, I read just about every book about them in existence, but I look forward to digging into them again-- and to watching (again!) the 2006 version of "Jane Eyre" starring Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens. I loved it!

    One fascinating book that hasn't been mentioned is "Mr. Charlotte Bronte--The Life of Arthur Bell Nicholls," by Alan Adamson.

  10. I really liked Jamaica Inn. I hope you read it. I'd love to hear your take on it!

  11. Argh, so much for my resolution not to join any new challenges in 2010! I can't resist the Brontes.
