Villette | Charlotte Bront
post image

#Iwonder when I will get to this chunkster, considered as Charlotte Brontë‘s finest. The story follows Lucy Snowe to the fictional Belgian town of Villette, where she teaches in a girls school. It is based on Brontë‘s own experiences in Brussels, where she lived for almost two years in the early 1840s.

Libby1 I adored this one. I agree. It is her finest. Just don‘t read her book Shirley right after this one. You won‘t be able to cope with the disappointment! 😔 1y
batsy Oh, this book ❤️ 1y
Cathythoughts Me too !! I feel the same ! When will we get to it ?? ! Soon I hope 🤞🏻 1y

Notafraidofwords Just got it. Of course not this cover. This one is gorgeous. 1y
Lcsmcat I didn‘t realize this was such a chunkster. I read it as an eBook and it zipped right along for me. Excellent choice! 1y
Moray_Reads @Lcsmcat same! I'm amazed it's this long! 1y
saresmoore Oh, it‘s gorgeous! 1y
saresmoore @Notafraidofwords Do you have a planned time to read this? I‘d love to read along with you! And you, as well, @erzascarletbookgasm if you‘d like! 1y
Notafraidofwords @saresmoore yes, I want to read it soon too. I have the BN edition of this one. 1y
Meredith3 Man that is one hell of a book! I wish you luck getting through it, that would probably take me a good 2 years 😳 1y
erzascarletbookgasm @Libby1 Thanks for the heads up! 1y
erzascarletbookgasm @Lcsmcat @Meredith3 @moray_reads this edition is 657 pages long, it certainly looks daunting! (edited) 1y
erzascarletbookgasm @saresmoore @notafraidofwords I‘ll love to read along but not this month, though. September? @Cathythoughts wanna read along too? 1y
saresmoore I would even be okay with waiting a bit longer. I‘ll be drowning in The Brothers Karamazov for a while! 😅 1y
emilyhaldi I‘m in for readalong too!! @saresmoore @erzascarletbookgasm @Notafraidofwords @Cathythoughts tagging a few additional people who seemed to have interest back when we first started discussing this readalong a few months ago 😆 @Bambolina_81 @merelybookish @rohit-sawant @Billypar @rubyslippersreads (edited) 1y
Cathythoughts I would love to read along ... I‘ll have to think. We have Peyton Place buddy read in September & I have Bookclub 🤔🤔I will if I can. Thanks for the invite 😘 1y
erzascarletbookgasm @saresmoore I‘m fine to wait longer then. Just give a shout out when. I still haven‘t begun to read The Brothers K! @emilyhaldi Yay! 1y
saresmoore @emilyhaldi Thank you for the reminder! I need to start writing things down... 1y
Reviewsbylola I want to read this eventually too! 1y
tonyahoswalt Have you gotten your bookmarks yet? I got a tracking message that they attempted to deliver, but nothing verifying they had. 1y
Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful cover!! 1y
erzascarletbookgasm @tonyahoswalt Not yet. Probably in the coming week. I‘ll let you know once they arrive 🙂 1y
Mdargusch Beautiful cover but I seem to only read chunksters for readalongs. 1y
Cinfhen So true @Mdargusch it seems I need EXTRA #LitsySupport when it comes to a #chunkster 1y
emilyhaldi @saresmoore my memory is terrible, I only remember bc I bought the book specifically for the indeterminate readalong... and scrolled back in posts on this book to find everyone‘s names 😆 1y

It‘s the last day of June, with means tomorrow is halfway through the year. I woke up, checked my Goodreads, and seen that I surpassed my annual goal of 500, after completing a few graphic novel reviews last night. ♥️📚😱

I know my second half of the year will be much busier, so I‘m not going to up my #GoodreadsChallenge, but I‘m just so excited to have surpasses it already. I couldn‘t have done it without my #LitsySupport
