Jane Eyre | Charlotte Brontee

Pickpick

Loved this classic - plot, writing and characters! Jane Eyre is one of my favorite fictional characters now. Love her sassy, resilient & strong attitude.

Rating: 5⭐

Also #ColorMePretty #RedAndBlack
Another #Classics That has been on my #TBR
Been wanting to read this epic tale but still waiting to be in the right mood to fully enjoy the writing. And I‘m still looking through different translations to find the one that suit me. I don‘t want to rush but slowly enjoy every details of it .
Are you picky when it comes to translation too? Or just me?

Caroline2 Yes!! I read this awesome article in The Guardian about different translations of Russian novels. Fascinating!! Now I do my research and google the book and different versions to see what people say. 👍🏻 3mo
BooknerdsLife @Caroline2 Oh! I did not realise such article existed! It sounds like one that I‘d love to read about and learn more about how to pick the right translations! I‘ll need to google about it! 😆🙌🏼 Thank you so much for the info ❤️ 3mo

My favourite #OrangeAndBlack books have to be this #PenguinClassic #Orange edition! I've only one out of this stack, but I can't wait to read them all! Thinking of East of Eden next ...Which one would you suggest for me to read next?

BarbaraJean Soooo pretty!! 😍 I‘d recommend East of Eden—my favorite of what I‘ve read by Steinbeck, and a perfect summer chunkster read! 3mo
BooknerdsLife @BarbaraJean Awww Thank you🥰💖 I love Steinbeck‘s writing too & this one is definitely on top of my TBR too 😊 Great idea of a summer read 🙌🏼 Thanks 😘 3mo
CarolynM @Cinfhen has just finished up a buddy read of East of Eden. You might be interested in the discussions when you've read the book. #eoe (edited) 3mo

LiterRohde My vote would be for Lovecraft. 3mo
BooknerdsLife @CarolynM Awww Thank you for the hashtag 🙌🏼💖 I didn‘t realise there was a buddy read til it was too late. But will definitely look into the discussions when I read it. :) xx 3mo
BooknerdsLife @LiterRohde That would be my second choice 😄👍🏼 Been wanting to reading for years! 3mo

#30JuneBooks : #PrettyBooks
For me, every book is beautiful and this is one of them, beautiful both inside and out 😍 Read it last year (wish I read it earlier) & it has such an impact on me! Tolstoy‘s writing about Life, Love, Death & Politics are insightful & beautiful, so relatable despite it was written hundred years ago. And this #VintageClassics is so gorgeous!

Simona If you have time in your reading life, and if you read nonfiction - his nonfiction works are almost more interesting than his fiction books. Great look in his thought process, his spiritual journey, politics, society, religion ... 4mo
BooknerdsLife @Simona Thank you for the suggestion 🙏🏼☺️💕 TBH I don‘t normally read non fiction but I‘m really interested in his works and might do some research and try to look into his non fiction works in between my never ending TBR 😅 4mo

Just a quick #PinkBooks post. And I didn't realise I have so many pink books til now!! 😱
Jane Eyre is definitely one of my favorite books& I only read it few years ago! But its changed my view about Classics! Didn't know I like them til I read them. #True

Day 1 of #SpringIntoReading : #FooledYou
Don't be fooled by the genre of this book or its size. It's actually very readable despite the fact that it's a Classics ...and very enjoyable with lots of characters, some you love & adore (& they might NOT be the one on the title😬) and some you hate 😩
Thank you once again to
@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88
for all these fun book challenges 🙌💗

ErinSueMreads Good lord I don‘t know if I could make it all the way through without dying. His voice is my favorite. He does a documentary called South Pacific on Netflix that is fabulous. And if you do one thing today it should be to look up the graham norton special discussing him saying the word penguin 🐧 😂💜🤦🏻‍♀️ 1y
JennyM @ErinSueG I second that, his penguin discussion on Graham Norton will have you snorting with laughter. 🐧 1y
BooknerdsLife @JennyM @ErinSueG Hahaaa Yes!!!! ??? I love his "Pangwengs" in South Pacific and on Graham Norton! Benedict is too adorable ? IKR! Benedict's voice is earporn that's totally worth dying for!!! ?? Sad I have to wait til September for this audio tho! Can't Wait!!!!! 1y

ErinSueMreads @BooknerdsLife I should have known you would have already seen it! So funny!!! I have every single book he‘s narrated on my audible wishlist. Don‘t even care what they are about hahahaha! @JennyM have you seen the one with eddy red maybe and Brian Cranston??? That one is also pure gold when they do their pickup lines. 1y
BooknerdsLife @ErinSueG Haha Yes! I love all his interviews! He is funny and articulate! 😄 Met him in person once and he's also super nice😍 ...Awww I'd love to have all the audio books narrated by him too!!! 😲❤️ But I wouldn't know how or where to begin! 🙈 Love his interviews with Eddie on Graham Norton too. And when he did Mad Lib Theatre with Jimmy Fallon 😂😂😂 1y
CKlube Whaaaaat?! 1y
BooknerdsLife @CKlube haha I assume you either Love Bennidict Cummberbatch like me...Or totally dislike him? 😆😆 Or just really excited about the book? 😏 1y
